Hopefully the SOE whiskey is shipped bottled or drunk at Camp X.

Perhaps some of the barriers are coming down with regulations thanks to small American Distillers? I’ve been eyeing the 291 Brand and noticed that their E for experimental has won awards for wheat Whiskey, I’m not clear if E is a wheated bourbon or not? I’m also curious about the Aspen wood staves used in the finishing barrels, I wouldn’t have thought that comparable to Oak?

Think I'm going to repopulate this into a thread that is not the Comedy Zone...

I kind of wish I was a Whiskey drinker, I could be lounging out on my back deck with a drink and a cigar....they just go hand-n-hand. But I'd probably fall off my deck...lol...

If I have the extra $ then Glenmorangie is the one I prefer. I guess a wise man drinks bourbon that way he remembers what he's drinking.

You should try the Barrel Proof Elijah Craig...

Not sure if it has been discussed, but the Horse Soldiers Reserve is excellent, if a little pricey.

Worth a try, and they ship to several states.

Also open right now, we have Weller's, Old Forester Birthday, Angel's Envy, Blanton's, Buffalo Trace, and my regular sipping whiskey, Bernheim Original.

Buffalo Trace products are extremely hard to come by these days. It will be a few years before their current expansion produces significantly more whiskey.

Reaper, thanks for that I've been wondering about the Horse Soldier. May be celebrating a new job soon. Seems like a good excuse to buy a nice bottle.

You will not go wrong with any of the Horse Soldier Bourbons.

They call it a Rye and use some unique barreling.

Quote:
Award-winning small-batch whiskey distillery Distillery 291 out of Colorado recently released their 291 “M” Colorado Whiskey for the holidays that just passed, a new whiskey made with 291’s flagship rye that is finished in whiskey barrels previously used to age maple syrup.

The whiskey starts as the distillery’s 291 Colorado Rye Whiskey, which is aged in new American white oak barrels and finished with Aspen staves, before being transferred to barrels previously used to barrel-age Wisconsin maple syrup by producer Lincoln County Reserve Maple Syrup. It was then finished for an additional four months.

With official tasting notes making mention of toasted oak, toffee, maple syrup, and figs, the 291 “M” Colorado whiskey reportedly gives a rich and spicy taste that the distillery describes as “liquid french toast with a serious kick.”

The new whiskey is presented at 123.4 proof for a suggested retail price around $105 per 750 ml bottle and is available at Distillery 291’s tasting room and select Colorado retailers. The release contains a limited quantity of 866 bottles and stands as the first new label introduced by 291 in five years.
Using the maple syrup barrels is a big plus,, but only 4 months??
@ 123.4 proof the angles hardly get their fair share..
g


PS: I would add the whisky business is a billion dollar industry,, read: reviews and awards are a bit contrived and self-manufactured

JJ Good catch, I was thinking wheat in the literal sense. I recall the description from “Our Southern Highlanders “ regarding the folks with greater means adding rye to corn liquor in the Southern Blue Ridge. I do enjoy the Rye Bourbons for the most part.

I agree with your last comment, I often feel I’m in the epicenter of self congratulation here in Colorado. Besides the Real estate market another favorite of mine is the street department, their heads tell us they’re on time and under budget constantly... I suppose that’s a good thing because we would never know that unless they told us.

The truth is I’m thrilled to taste some Jack Daniels single barrel select or some 4 roses on occasion Jack’s SBS Rye is pretty tasty IMO.

There does seem to be a lot of smaller breweries and distilleries here as well as some liquors that are manufactured for brands. One of my favorite adds for a small distiller in Basalt was “ The difference between our distillery and some others is that we actually have a distillery.”

Redemption out of Indiana makes a "High Rye Bourbon"

Corn, Rye and Barley.

I've found it a good go-to for sipping straight or in a traditional Old Fashioned if I don't have straight Rye handy

My ADHD got me - at first glance I thought it read "stripping paint".
