Title for The Whisky: The Whisky

It’s a Whiskey Season Celebration.

By popular demand, it’s a Bourbon center gala. W.L. Weller is a must sought after wheated Bourbon as its Mashbill substitutes wheat instead of the standard rye grain component. Boone County 1833 is a fine 10-year Bourbon bottled at almost 91-proof. In Chattanooga, we discovered its top-selling J.W. Kelly Melrose Rye. Our bottle was finished in a former Amarone red wine cask of Spanish red oak. Old Bardstown is a sourced-Bourbon bottled by Willett Distillery. Rumor has it as having been made by Heaven Hill. Who cares? It’s a delicious 101-proofer at only $40 a bottle! Our Knob Creek is a single barrel, barrel proof Bourbon selected/bottled for Vintage Bottle Shop in Acworth. Now the big find: Stagg Junior which is among the harder to find Buffalo Trace Bourbons.

My thanks to Harry at The Juice Box, Northside Drive, Sandy Springs. I hope that you can join us and do bring a friend because “good whisky is made great when shared among friends.”
