To kick off the 2017 baseball season, Jim Beam is releasing a very special batch of whiskey for Cubs’ fans. The limited-edition bourbon barrel-matured the night the Cubbies won the World Series after a 108 year drought. Available starting June 1 in the Chicago area.
A look behind the scenes at Louisville, Kentucky’s Kelvin Cooperage. The family-owned plant handmakes new oak barrels for aging bourbon and wines. The barrels may only be used once for bourbons, but will live on for many years providing a home for other spirits.
While you could spill some whiskey on your floor if you like the way it smells, a much better and less sticky solution would be to go for this recycled glass candle that’s scented like whiskey with a touch of maple. Burns for appx. 70 hours. Save 10% in The Awesomer Shop.
Another brilliant single barrel Kentucky whiskey from the Buffalo Trace Distillery. Elmer T. Lee is smooth and fragrant, with notes of spiced vanilla, and a lightly honeyed note throughout. At 90 proof, it’s eminently drinkable, and you should always keep a bottle in your cabinet.
It may be difficult to find, but this uncut, unfiltered Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is worth the effort. At 138 proof, it’s not for whiskey wussies, but the payoff is a spectacularly warm and chewy mouthfeel, with bold notes of chocolate, coffee and berries.
