New to Market! We’ll begin with Stranahan’s barley-centered Colorado whiskey and then move onto 2 Sixth Street whiskeys: Sixth Street Bourbon and Rye, a couple of 90-proofers. Why not 2 more Texas whiskeys: Garrison Brothers Flagship and Single Barrel, both are selling like hotcakes and are harder to find than Elmer T. Lee Bourbon. Our final bourbon will be another new-to-market Bourbon: Berkshire Smoke and Peat. This is perfect for the Islay whisky lovers: after being aged for 4 years in new charred oak, it was finished in a quarter cask (125-L) from Laphroaig distillery on Islay’s southern shore at Kildalton. Don’t bother to ask: I have no idea where you might find whiskeys #2-6. But if you want to taste them on 10/17/17, I’ll see you at Freight Kitchen. Do bring along a friend to enjoy our flight of good American whiskey!
