“THE GOOD STUFF!” Our menu consists of 6 American whiskeys of which 4 were distilled in Kentucky, 1 in Massachusetts and 1 in Indiana. By type, 5 Bourbons and 1 American whiskey. That latter whiskey, Beacon, is a great ‘bourbon’ but can’t be labeled as such because it was matured in a 1st fill charred barrel rather than the required new charred oak barrel. Sixth Street Straight Bourbon is the creation of MASC member Michael Leidel (owner of Dime Box Distillery). Elmer T. Lee is my go-to Bourbon… if you can find a bottle! Hirsch and Wild Turkey Rare Breed (Barrel Proof) are top 10 favorites. We will finish with the new Berkshire ‘Smoke and Peat’ Straight Bourbon… a fantastic retro-Bourbon! Join us!!
