Barrel Craft Spirits 15 year old bourbon was named Best American Whiskey of 2018 by Fred Minnick in Forbes. That immediately made it highly sought after and next to impossible to find. The following year, Barrell quietly released this second release, which, like the others in the Barrell Craft Spirits line, sells for significantly more than the regular Barrell releases. I was fortunate enough to taste the first release, and enjoyed it, so I purchased the second release when it became available.

Four Roses Limited Edition 2019.Four Roses occasionally releases limited edition, barrel strength, non-chill filtered bourbons. Generally, these are released once a year, and occasional more frequently. These are small batch bourbons, and therefore represent a blend of 2 or more bourbons which may each use different yeasts or mashbills.
Two local entrepreneurs, Chad Brizendine and Jake Warm, have acquired the beloved local bourbon brand O.K.I. from New Riff Distilling. O.K.I.’s first single barrel releases are set for bottling at cask strength and release in Northern Kentucky this fall, just in time for bourbon enthusiasts’ busiest time of year.
