Kirkland Bottled in Bond Bourbon Review

Kirkland Bottled in Bond Bourbon Review

Please enjoy my Kirkland Bottled in Bond Bourbon Review! There are a lot of store brand whiskeys out there. But what’s interesting about this Kirkland Bottled in Bond Bourbon from Costco is that it says the name of the distillery where it was made, Barton 1792 Distillery, right on the label.

Benchmark Bonded Bourbon Review

Benchmark Bonded Bourbon Review

Please enjoy my Benchmark Bonded Bourbon review! Have you seen the “new” additions to the Benchmark bourbon line? They are: Top Floor, Small Batch, Single Barrel, Bonded and Full Proof. Today we will look at the Benchmark Bonded Bourbon. The only information available is what is on the bottle: “The Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897 set strict standards for bonded whiskey. This 100 proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey aged four years to meet those standards. Enjoy the rich flavor and long smooth finish.”

Early Times Bottled in Bond Bourbon Review

Early Times Bottled in Bond Bourbon Review

Early Times Bottled in Bond bourbon is a relatively new addition to the market. Early Times itself is an old brand. It was first established in 1860 by Jack Beam and A.G. Nall. The brand was successful up until shortly before prohibition when Jack and his son, Ed, who ran the distillery with him, passed away. Then prohibition closed the distillery. The brand was purchased by Brown-Forman in 1923, who originally sold Early Times Bourbon under their medicinal license.

Rittenhouse Rye Review

Rittenhouse Rye Review

Rittenhouse Rye is said to get its name from Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia. It is an older brand, which eventually was acquired by Heaven Hill. Rye was once America’s spirit. There were two main styles of rye – Maryland Rye, which had a relatively low rye content (but at least 51%), with the rest of mash bill being made up generally of corn and malted barley. Pennsylvania (or Monongahela) Rye had a very high rye content, more similar to the 95% rye, 5% malted barley mash bill that has become synonymous with MGP rye today.

Mellow Corn Review

Mellow Corn Review

Please enjoy our Mellow Corn Review! Mellow Corn Kentucky Straight Corn Whiskey is a fairly unique product. First, it is a corn whiskey, which we’ll learn more about in a minute. Second it is a Bottled in Bond corn whiskey, which is pretty rare indeed, and in fact, this may be the only one. Not many distilleries produce corn whiskey these days. This one was first introduced in 1945 and is made by Heaven Hill today. It’s a great value and in the Lexington, KY area it can be found for around $12. It’s a nice change when you are looking for something on the lighter side that’s very easy to drink.

J.T.S Brown & J.W. Dant Bottled in Bond Bourbons

J.W. Dant & J.T.S Brown Bottled in Bond Bourbon Reviews

I am writing about J.W. Dant & J.T.S Brown Bottled in Bond bourbons together, because frankly, I always get them confused. While the labels might lead one to believe that these bourbons are made by The Dant Distillery Company and J.T.S Brown’s Son Company (those are both the correct, albeit unusual, spellings), they are in reality made by Heaven Hill. Both are distilled at the Bernheim Distillery in Louisville, KY, and both are bottled at Heaven Hill’s bottling facility in Bardstown. We know this to be true, because as these are bonded bourbons, this information must appear on the label. And indeed it does: both are distilled at DSP-KY-1 and both are bottled at DSP-KY-31.

Wild Turkey 17 Year Old Bottled in Bond Bourbon

Wild Turkey 17 Year Old BiB Bourbon Review

This Wild Turkey 17 Year Old Bottled In Bond Bourbon is a very unique bourbon. The nose is just incredible, and unlike a lot of bourbons, all of those flavors continue on into the taste, and then even into the finish, where they are ultimately overcome by dryness and char. But that’s actually welcome. The finish is almost cleansing, like Fernet-Branca after a large meal, getting me ready for my next sip. And that next sip could be quite a while a way, since the finish lasts a good long time.
