Greetings and Happy #ThirstyThursday , my people! 🥃😁💯 Additionally, #TGIF to all of my friends Down Under! 🇦🇺🥃🙌😄 In recognition of #BourbonHeritageMonth 🇺🇸, I figured that I'd go on ahead and share my thoughts about this tasty @bulleit #Bourbon ! 👌 In light of my recent positive experience with #BulleitRye (see my post from 14 August 👍), I decided to pick up this 50ml #MiniBottle of #BulleitBourbon a few days ago! 🛒🥃😉 This is a #HighRye bourbon (the mashbill contains 28% #Rye 🌾) which, as I have learned, #ScotchWhisky drinkers like myself tend to dig! 💯 She's also bottled at a respectable 45% ABV (90 proof). The sweet and lively nose offers immediate notes of oaky vanilla, caramel, cinnamon, orange zest and corn syrup. The sweet and spicy palate offers more oaky vanilla/caramel/cinnamon/orange, along with brown sugar/sugary char, allspice, cracked pepper and a slightly vegetal hint of tobacco. The finish is oaky, slightly dry, and offers more spicy cinnamon/cracked pepper and a subtle hint of orange. A tasty and very affordable dram of bourbon, y'all! 👍 Cheers, gang! 🥃😎 @wowwhiskys @attekattenuwa @jerryd06 @siuloongwoo @bevvietime @carfusedman @meademule @anthony.sap @johntots2 @whiskey_hunt_australia @oakandwhiskey @flowsdrams @filthy_dirty_savage @just80svideos @ziowhisky @zandman06 @scotch_votary @wisewhiskeyreviews @aussiewhiskybloke @allsauced @whisky_way_of_life @andreasangman @neatwhiskyexperience @the_whiskydrinker @decadentdram @fan_tastic_nick @drikkelyst @whiskyanorach @whisky_vibes @whiskyforce
Guess what I got another bottle of? If you can't figure it out swipe left and you'll see it's the Four Roses Limited Edition Small Batch Barrel Strength Al Young 50th Anniversary Edition. This thing is all the rave right now and I am pretty lucky to have some, let alone any. I think this is the luckiest I have ever gotten with any bourbon release. Makes me wonder: What bottles are your pride and joy? What bottle were you the luckiest to get? Any great stories behind them?

Day 41 of #100bourbons100days and second day in a row at home in #colorado drinking #colonelehtaylor#smallbatchbourbon#100proof and (reposting) a little reading on #bondedbourbon below from mentalfloss #bourbon#kentuckybourbon#americanwhiskey#notanalcoholic#becomeanalcoholicin100days#beardsandbourbon#beardsofinstagram
You might see, on a bottle, Bottled-in-Bond or Bonded. This means the bourbon was made at a single distillery, by one distiller in one distillation season, aged for at least four years in a federally bonded and supervised warehouse, and bottled at 100 proof.
Bonded bourbons came about in the late 1800s, when some distilleries were to turning a quick buck on harsher, unaged bourbons and adding anything from fruit syrups to tobacco to improve the color and flavor. As American Whiskey Reviews explains, the distilleries that churned out these “rectified whiskies” had a leg up on more proper bourbon makers in terms of production time and costs, allowing them to control much of the whiskey market. To protect themselves, distillers lobbied Congress to lay down the above standards in the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897, giving their products a mark of government-guaranteed quality assurance and a fighting chance in the market.
Tasting and Review of HASOF Small Batch Bourbon from @haveashotoffreedom :
Nose: It opens with a sweet vanilla and oak. Followed by caramel, malted barley, a light charcoal, and leather. Finishing with notes of rye spice and ethanol (90 proof).
Taste: Pleasantly sweet malt and vanilla with oak. Next comes more subtle notes of leather with a small spicy rye kick. Ending with a sweet and malty ethanol burn.
Finish: Sweet and slightly spicy going down with a warming ethanol burn. Smooth and leaving you wanting more, with lingering notes of spicy vanilla, sweet malt, and charred oak.
