does anybody out there like a little bourbon whiskey?
what is your fav?
get you a little woodford reserve, and sip it slow
how do you like it served?
on ice?
a little water?
i figure if they worked that hard to create a flavor profile, then why
put anything in it?
it's like putting ketchup on french food
-it just isn't done

I do not believe Jack Daniels is a bourbon. I think it is a sour mash. Kentucky folks might get upset with the finest whiskey in the world being called a bourbon.

We had 35 Japanese pharmaceutical guys visit us in Knoxville a few years ago. The only word of English they knew was Jack Daniels and Dolly Parton.

If you ever get a chance, visit Lynchburg TN. The distillery is as ancient as they advertise it. I do not things have changed in the last 100 years. Smells good too

My local liquor store sells some pretty expensive bourbons. I bought one because it was recommended by a friend. I paid close to $100. Perhaps I ain't that good of a taster. I agree with the Mayor, Makers mark is pretty good stuff.

Jack Daniels is a little sweet for me.

Paul,
Bardstown KY holds a tour of several of the local distilleries once a year. I don't know the cost, but you use a charter bus to go from Distillery to distillery a total of 7 to 9 on the tour. At each you watch the operation and get a sample or two of different types of Bourbon. It is my understanding that at the end of the tour a designated driver is required for each participant.
BTW there ar 21 Bourbon distilleries within an hour of Bardstown.
and (one More)
A couple of years back a tanker truck was stolen out of a parking area near Louisville while the driver was out to lunch or something...the trailer tanker was filled with 12,000 gallons of Gin, heading for the Seagram's bottling facility in Lawrenceburg, Indiana. They recovered the truck and trailer the next day in rural Indiana...but it was empty. I have always wondered how someone could drain 12,000 gallons of gin in a day...What a hell of a martini!!

Either that or that had one hellova straw

I wonder what they did with it

I would like to do the tour you described. If you ever get the opportunity, go to Lynchburg. The tour is very good and they allow you to stick your nose over the fermentation vat. Please be aware, it ain't nothing fancy The CO2 will knock your socks off when you stick your nose over the fermentation tanks.

Downtown Lynchburg is your kind of place. Great antiques and real downhome restaurants.

RE: bourbon 2003/06/19 21:35:27
Technically, Jack Daniels is a "Tennessee" whiskey. George Dickel and Jack Daniels are the only two whiskeys (last I knew, anyway), that can carry the designation of Tennessee, due to the unique charcoal filtering process both distilleries use. I know Jack Daniels also calls itself a "sour mash"; I don't remember if George Dickel does or not.

However, in my experience, when you are thoroughly enjoying your favorite adult beverage, you don't give a d**m what it is "technically".

For me, it's Maker's Mark or Wild Turkey 101.

I also agree with Sundance that anyone should take the tour in Lynchburg. It's a cool town, and the distillery tour is really interesting.

I also ate at a diner downtown on the square of some small town not far from there; I read about it in one of the Stern's books. Can't remember the restaurant or the town, but I'll look for it and edit my post if I find it.

Talk about a dilemma- We bought three of the Special "Secretariat" Bottles of Maker's Mark, with the all black glass and gold lettering...done to honor the 30th aniversary of the Triple Crown performance... The thought was to have something special for a Derby Party next year, or later.. Well we took the bottles out to Keeneland Race Course on the day of the BlueGrass Stakes this Spring to have them autographed (in gold ink) by by the owner of the horse, the jockey who rode him in the big races, the President of Makers Mark, and the President of Keeneland Race Track ( it was a charitable special event with the signing part of a special day's program there). To make a long story short, the day turned out to be a 6 hour wait in line for the autographs...after which we we too worn down to enjoy the day of racing, so we went home. Now I have the three bottles ($40 each) but with them all signed I see them on Ebay at $100 or more apiece. My Dilemma-- Do I drink this stuff and throw away the collector's value? Or save them, and drink the Red Seal Bottles available to all? Here is one of the bottles in it's 'presigning stage'.

I'm not usually a Bourbon drinker, but I realllllly loved the late, lamented Maker's Mark 101, which was produced a while back. One ounce neat with a side of ice water would make me purr for hours, akin to my response from a slice of Mrs. Bonner's Sweet Tater Pie.

Mayor----interesting that the only way I obtained a bottle of Woodford Reserve was from a big winner at the 2000 Ky Derby. I don't really know what they cost! The $20 I paid for the Buffalo Trace was OK, but not a weekly expenditure. These two bourbons, not available in DM IA, plus Churchill are two reasons I'm better off to live in Iowa.

Woodfords Reserve & Marker's Mark for Kentucky Bourbon
Marker's Mark uses Winter Wheat in the Mash, replacing Rye
that grain substition takes the "bite" out of thier end product.
Makes an excellent Manhantan
If you don't know what I mean by "Bite" buy a small pt of Rye Whiskey, That's BITE
George Dickel for Tennessee Whiskey, far smoother than Jack's

Tullahoma TN is also the home of Grannie's Catfish Restaurant. A worthy place to go for fresh ( out of the pond on the property) whiskerfish.

We take visitors to the Jim Beam Distillery for a 'place to go' ...good AV tour of the place, nice gift shop, and just across the road from the Bernhiem Forest and Nature Preserve, one of Kentucky best flora display areas.

In descending order of preference: Knob Creek; Wild Turkey 101; Maker's Mark. And believe it or not, 10-year-old Old Grandad isn't bad! Always with ice and a bit of water. Occasionally club soda.

Scotch: Lagavulin; Laphroaig; any island whisky; Johnny Walker black.

"Brown-Forman is changing the name of its historic distillery in Versailles. The Labrot & Graham Distillery will become the Woodford Reserve Distillery, to acknowledge the bourbon made there. At the same time, the distillery will begin offering more public attractions: a new picnic veranda, bourbon to sample, three tours, rotating exhibits and a new archive building. Tours are $5 each, beginning Wednesday. For information, call (859) 879-1934. The renovated distillery was reopened in 1997."

Don't know if it was the 19-year-old: probably not, as it struck me as being somewhat harsher than Knob Creek. Incidentally, I think a lot of interstate commerce in booze has to do with transfers from one federally licensed dealer in one state to the same in another. State & local regulations get involved, too: for a while when I lived in TN I had to cross the state line & make an illegal purchase or else drive 45 min. to get communion wine.

In northwoods Wisconsin, Kesslers is the whiskey of choice. Although it's advertised as "smooth as silk," it's akin to swallowing razor blades. Kesslers mixed with Mountain Dew exterminates unwanted critters; the sweetness attracts them and the alcohol does them in.

Chicago Doggie,
You've restored my faith in drinking-age-America. In the Louisville area, We refer to the drink made with Mountain Dew and One of the 'less-well-known' brands of Bourbon ( Bartons- Old Bardstown- J W Dant- among others) as theRedneck Whiskey Sour.It is usually served in a 44 oz.Big Gulp Cup with NASCAR logo's on the cup.
There are a number of less well known brand names that may not pass the "Yup Smoothness Test" but they do get the job done quite well at times.
One of the perks to being a part of the Maker's Mark Marketing Club is that you can have your name blazed onto a barrel of the stuff when it is distilled and set aside...Then when the barrel comes of age for bottling they will invite you to a tasting as the product is being bottled. It is a fun time, and makes me feel a part of the local bourbon coulture here. At last report you could buy "your barrel" for a mere $4000 if you wanted to keep it a real Private Reserve".

A barrel of beer is 31 gallons. I'm not sure, but I think a barrel of whiskey is 52, of which about 25-30% would be lost to evaporation, which would then yield about 38 gallons. If my estimate is right, by buying a barrel, one would end up with about 15 cases of .75 liter bottles.

Lynchburg is indeed in a dry county, but it's a very small county. Go ten miles in any direction from Lynchburg, and you're out of the dry county. Also, JD has a special dispensation from the county, and is allowed to sell bottles to the public, although one cannot sample the product at the tour.
Dickel is just outside Tullahoma, in a place called Cascade Hollow. The distillery shut down operations for several years, due to an overabundance of product. I think they started up again last year.

Pogophiles,
I would have to concur, given the choice is between those two. A construction company owner in Nashville told me that Dickel had fewer impurities because it isn't "rushed" like Jack Daniels seems to him to be.
I still say I prefer Maker's Mark, and would really love to have some more of their no-longer-produced 101 version. Gracious, that stuff could turn me into a bona-fide Bourbon drinker....

I am a Jack Daniels man for many years, but I agree it is not bourbon. I have spent 20 years drinking Jack and preaching its superiority over Kentucky bourbon. And then I found Bookers. Bookers is Jim Beam's uncut-unfiltered whiskey. Straight from barrel to bottle. About 127 proof but smooth and warm. It appears most of the postings favor Maker's. I suggest at your next opportunity you have some Bookers. It has a bit of a kick but will warm you from head to toe. And I think all whiskey should be drank either neat or over ice.
