Please enjoy our Boone County Pot Still Bourbon review! The Boone County Distilling Company as we know it has been around since 2015, although it is founded on a rich history dating back to 1833. Their releases up until now have been clear spirits, rum and sourced rye and bourbons. I have been a fan. Some of the labels, notably the Eighteen33 bourbons, are no longer with us, and they are missed. The future is now, though. Boone County has been waiting patiently for their bourbon to age. This first release is 5 1/2 years old. Made from a mash bill of 74% corn, 21% rye and 5% malted barley it was distilled in their 500 gallon copper pot still, named The Bear. It is bottled at 94.8 proof. Retail is $49.99.

Please enjoy my Blanton’s Bourbon Review! The story goes that Elmer T. Lee, while culminating his tenure at Buffalo Trace Distillery (which I think was the George T. Stagg Distillery at the time), created this bourbon brand. He had recalled that Colonel (as in Kentucky Colonel, not military Colonel) Albert B. Blanton, former president of the distillery, would pick barrels from the center of Warehouse H to be served to his guests. So Elmer picked barrels from Warehouse H to be bottled and sold as the first bottled single barrel bourbon in 1984.
Please enjoy my Brother’s Bond Bourbon Review! I am not ashamed to admit it. Even though I am not the target demographic, I was a huge fan of The Vampire Diaries, and then its spin-off, The Originals. So when I heard that Damon and Stefan Salvatore, er, I mean Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley, were coming out with a bourbon, I knew I had to give it a try. I know, I know, I am not the target demographic for the bourbon, either, but they did drink a ton of bourbon on the show, so I figured they knew what they were doing!
