Well, I usually don't like premixed drinks but this does not fit the mold of those.
Its a robust full flavored Mint julep just as you would make at home.
Plenty of mint and sweet but not overdone. The bourbon is definitely present.
But not overbearing.

I highly recommend trying and and keep your radar on for this cos its so limited in availability.
As soon at it hits the shelves its gone!

I lucked into the 1 liter bottle that i have on hand.

Thought it was time for a bourbon bump. And, I gotta say that the Blanton's that Bargoyle bestowed upon me for my birthday is a mighty fine bourbon. A fantastic sipper.

Ah, bourbon... my first great love before discovering rum.
Love that sweet brown nectar. Currently I'm a fan of the Pogue, Maker's is always a welcome friend, and Wild Turkey 101 is my all-time go-to when bar-hopping.
However, the best bourbon I've ever laid lips on, as in my favorite (your mileage may vary) is the Elijah Craig 12 yr. Now, they make an 18 too, and it is tasty, but I think the 12 is better. The 12 has hints of vanilla in it and is as smooth as the proverbial baby's hiney. The 18 goes a little licorice for my tastes, but I surely would not turn it down if offered.
Elijah is made by Heaven Hill and you can usually find the 12 yr for around 20 bucks. And believe me, that is a bargain. The stuff is purely delicious.

While I love a good bourbon, most of the time I prefer Rye in my whiskey based drink. Rye is spicier, while bourbon tends to be sweeter. Of course, that's a generalization.

Very nice now you will have to buy 3 more bottles there a 4 distinct stoppers that represent the differnt stages of the Kentucky Derby.

As a side note I learned this only last week when a friend of mine and I were sharing our Bourbon knowledge. The Sazerac Company out of New Orleans ownes The Buffalo Trace distillery which makes Blantons, Van Winkle, Hancock President Reserve, and Sazerac which were all mentioned in this thread. They also make Ancient Age. This is just the way it is most of the brands that are out there are made by about 8 or so distilleries. I did find it interesting that quite a few that were mentioned were from this one distillery.

Have you tried the Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Straight Rye Whiskey? I have a bottle of 2009 edition. 129 proof and liquid gold.

Speaking of bourbon, this sounds awesome!

-Rev

Quote:
Kentucky Sidecar

½oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
1oz. Fresh Tangerine Juice
1½oz. Bourbon (a nice small-batch bourbon preferred)
¾oz. Triple Sec

Rub the rim of a chilled cocktail glass with a tangerine wedge & sugar the rim.

Put all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice, then shake it with passion for 15-20 seconds. Strain into your cocktail glass. Garnish with a tangerine twist, or for a sexy addition drop a few raspberries into the cocktail glass.

Not bourbon, but since ryes are being mentioned... I'll jump in there, too.
Tried that new Bulleit Rye the other day and hot damn is that a smooth mutha.
I need to snag a bottle and see how it is in cocktails, cause it's so smooth I'm wondering if it'll get lost with other ingredients.
I've always relied on the Turkey Rye, and it's got a nice heat to it, which really stands up and salutes in a Sazerac.

Let's organize an official bourbon tour. This could be a great extended weekend gathering. I'd be glad to help organize it if it sounds like something a group of us might enjoy.

I would get on board for that. :thumbsup:

But when is the key..


With Ohana in June and CATT in September; that's like installing a spigot on my wallet.

We could throw it into next year... say, next winter or early spring....as long as we can set a date and shoot for it.

Beachcomber Brian and I were happy to switch to bourbon on the rocks Saturday late night, to take a break from the fruity rum drinks.
