These two delights were waiting for me on my kitchen table when I got home! @tragicmonster 's first 30 gallon barrel via Kings County Distillery in Brooklyn! A ridiculously smooth peated bourbon and some single origin beans via @reanimatorcoffee. Thanks Stella! Your first batch is superb and I am looking forward to testing out your next one! #smallbatchbourbon#coffee
I'm a little excited 😀Our delivery of @kingscountydistillery peated bourbon has arrived 🚚

Howdy and Happy Friday, y’all! 🥃👏😄 I just polished off a late lunch/early supper at another one of my favorite local haunts, @flemingssteakhouse (River Oaks - Houston, Texas), and I figured that I’d share a few pics and a bourbon review! 📷🥃📝😎👌 I decided to order from their terrific “Bar la Carte” menu and had one of their tasty #PrimeRibDip sandwiches topped with #CaramelizedOnions and served alongside a bit of rosemary #AuJus , sour cream #Horseradish and some of their double-cut #ShoestringPotatoes ! 🥖🍖🍃🥔😋👍 While I was there, I went ahead and tried out a #WeeDram of that #OldRipVanWinkle 10 year-old #Bourbon from @buffalotracedistillery! 🥃😉💯 As many of y’all know, this particular bourbon, along with any other release distributed, marketed and/or affiliated with the #PappyVanWinkle banner, is about as tough to find in the wild as a pair of hen’s teeth! 🛒🔍🤔😄 Like any other bourbon, #VanWinkle expressions are matured in charred, virgin oak barrels and are distilled from a #MashBill that primarily consists of corn as the main ingredient. 🌽 One distinctive trait of the Van Winkle mash-bill is the distillery’s use of wheat as the secondary ingredient as opposed to rye (which is more typical). They also add a dash of malted barley into the mix. 🌾🥃😉 This expression was bottled at a healthy 53.5% ABV (107 proof). 👌 The sweet and fragrant nose offers immediate notes of creamy honey, vanilla, brown sugar, buttery/caramel popcorn, cherry and a bit of maple syrup. The equally sweet palate offers more honey/vanilla/brown sugar/caramel popcorn/cherry along with some apple, oaky cinnamon, butterscotch and an intriguing vegetal/herbal spice note that struck me as a combination of ginger and tobacco leaf. The persistent finish offers more caramel/oaky cinnamon/ginger/tobacco along with a bit of chocolate. In sum, she’s a tasty bourbon that I wish were more readily available in the shops, y’all! Have a great weekend and cheers, gang! 🥃😎💯
When a group of people is torn between which one they like better the Pappy or Jefferson you have created a great product. It seems like the class of the bourbon world is Pappy but Honeybunch loves all the different bourbon blends/ recipes and concoctions that Jefferson’s comes up with. Our bar gets bigger by the day. 36 small batch bourbons and counting. Great job with the selection Jeff’s . @jeffsbourbon @pappyvanwinkle #bourbon#smallbatchbourbon
Two places that scare me.
1. Royal Jewelers... enough said. Sparkly stuff...
2. Total Wine
Today’s adventure when I could finally get out of the driveway once the tree branches were moved was to purchase a very limited supply of JEFFERSON'S GRAND SELECTION CHATTAU SUDUIRAUT SAUTERNES CASK FINISH BOURBON. Honeybunch did her research and saw they were coming out with it and we grabbed 3 bottles. The other people shopping the bourbon isle had no idea until they saw me grabbing them and they asked about it. I had read the reviews and regurgitated the spiel to them and the feeding frenzy started. Not a bottle was left and people were asking the employees for more........ commission please!#totalwine @totalwine @jeffsbourbon @jeffersonsbourbon #jeffersonsbourbon#royaljewelers @royaljewelersma #smallbatchbourbon#bourbon
