Big House 120 Proof Bourbon Review

Big House Bourbon Review

There’s little available information on Big House online, and a lot of it’s wrong. The bottle says it’s produced and bottled by Sazerac in Louisville, but that really means Buffalo Trace, which Sazerac calls its “home away from home.” Read our Big House Bourbon 120 Proof Review to learn more!

15 Stars Triple Cask Bourbon Review

  • by

15 Stars was started by father and son Rick and Ricky Johnson. I have enjoyed their prior releases, the 14 Year Timeless Reserve and the 7 & 15 Year Private Stock Bourbons. Like this release, they are all Kentucky Straight Bourbons. The 15 Stars Triple Cask is their first finished bourbon, and it uses cognac, port and rum casks. Find out more in our review!

Golden Sheaf Bourbon Review - Bottle

Golden Sheaf Bourbon Review

  • by

Golden Sheaf Bourbon Batch #1 was a “wheated” bourbon, as was the original 1800s recipe. A “wheated” bourbon uses wheat as the secondary grain, after corn. However, Golden Sheaf Bourbon Batch #2 is a “rye” bourbon. As the name implies, a “rye” bourbon uses rye as the secondary grain after corn. That happens to be the most common type of bourbon today. Batch #2 is a blend of Kentucky, Indiana and Louisiana bourbons aged from 6-8 years. Wondering what it’s like? Find out in our Golden Sheaf Bourbon review!

Kentucky Owl Mardi Gras Rye Review - Sample Bottle and Bottles

Kentucky Owl Mardi Gras Rye Review

  • by

Kentucky Owl Mardi Gras Rye begins with an 11 year old straight rye whiskey. The rye was then put into barrels that previously held Bayou XO Mardi Gras Rum. The barrels were originally filled in March and then allowed to finish in Louisiana for a little over a year. If you think of Louisiana in the summertime, there’s quite a bit of heat and humidity which should have an interesting effect on the barrels, and it did! Learn more in our full review!
