You may be in possession of the only bottle in existence. It hasn't been available for about 4 years. I was only able to get a single case of the Bourbon Mash before it was pulled from the market. Crown got in a little bit of trouble for calling a Canadian whisky by the name of Bourbon. Cherish that one!

That one was even before they put that “NOT A BOURBON” red labels on them haha.

I actually had just read an article on them since I remembered it wasn’t available long.  It’s certainly not the best, but I enjoyed this bottle!

Felt like a bit of Michter's Small Batch would be a nice way to kick off Father's Day Weekend watching the U.S. Open.

Glad to see I’m not the only one here who uses a glen cairn to drink from

Well bourbon by US law can only be produced in well the US. I can see the bourbon mash ruffling some feathers there, especially those in Kentucky. From what I’ve read they also think only they produce bourbon, even though a ton of bourbon gets produced in Indiana by MGP.

shades of gray. it was recognized by congress as a “distinctly american product” but they never passed a law about it. 

it’s due to trade agreements that the US gets to keep the name bourbon (which is ironically french) while other countries make whisky or whiskey  

correct, though, that 95+% of bourbon is made in kentucky. supposedly the high limestone concentration is integral to their distillation process.

I have a hard time believing the 95% MGP is what was in Bulleit bourbon for years and is still their rye and MGP is made outside of Kentucky. I honestly have never researched where most bourbon is made. I also find it funny how JD is a bourbon by definition of the mash but because of the charcoal filter process it makes it their own kind.

Four Roses was the distiller for Bulleit in the beginning. 

Tennessee Whiskey is Bourbon by definition: at least 51% corn, stored in new, White Oak, charred barrels for no less than 2 years. The charcoal filtering ads no color or flavoring. Any Bourbon producer can do the same if they choose.

Just like all bourbon is whiskey, not all whiskey is bourbon; all Tennessee Whiskey is whiskey, not all whiskey is Tennessee Whiskey. It has to go through the Lincoln County Process (maple charcoal filtering) to be called Tennessee Whiskey.

All of the above comments are spot on. I would also suggest that if you find something you like or are wanting to try, don't wait to grab it. Items that I used to be able to get on a regular basis( too many to mention by name) have become allocated and I get allocations periodically, if at all, especially when it relates to bourbon or rye. Needless to say, a large chunk of time is spent trying to keep my shelves from being empty. Happy hunting!

Just please @Chip Strokes, don't try to fix your slice, while repairing your drywall ceiling and having some of your favorite bourbon all at once.  We don't want any more "Oops" posts in the Home Improvement thread! 😂

I’m having a pint of champagne!  😂

I don’t even like this stuff, but I bought a 6-pack on a whim.  Not all that bad actually, but not all that good either...

A couple of wines from my daughter’s birth year to celebrate her 21st birthday.

 

Wantirna Estate Amelia Cabernet Merlot 2000

This was part of my pay for picking/cellar hand work during the 2003 vintage. Beautiful old wine that was still lively. It was an added bonus that Amelia is my daughter’s middle name.

 

Stanton and Killeen Vintage Port 2000

When my wife asked if I wanted to leave Maine and move to where she grew up, I couldn't say no to Pinehurst, NC. I honestly don't spend much money on golf equipment, but I'm constantly reading reviews in case I ever get ready to buy

I swing left handed and have been the State of Maine Left Hander's champion since 1997, the last year they held the tournament. I'm currently a 6.3 handicap. Trying to get lower, but my gut gets in the way.

WITB

Driver: :taylormade-small: R11 9 degree turned 1 degree lower (Bought since it was on sale at Dick's)

Irons: :titelist-small: 990's S300 Stiff shafts bought when I was in college. (Received a personal use discount, otherwise would've stuck with my Hogan Edge's)

3 Wood: :callaway-small: GBB Epic 15 degree (only club newer than 5 years in the bag)

52/56/60 :taylormade-small: Z Spin wedges (heck of a deal $100 for all 3 at Dick's in 2013)

Putter: :odyssey-small: White Hot XG SRT (bought because I won credit for a long drive in 2010)
