Bourbon Famous tries Blade and Bow, a bourbon from Diageo. Diageo and marketing gimmicks typically make for a dangerous combination. How does this one stand up? This bourbon whiskey also uses the Solera aging method, which means they have various barrels of different aged bourbon, that are constantly refilled so they never become empty. This means that theoretically you have some small amount of old bourbon in your whiskey, but it also means you're drinking whiskey, and not bourbon anymore.
Bourbon Famous tries a Very Large Bottle of Very Old Barton 86. This stuff's dirt cheap, but how does it taste? This isn't a bottom shelf showdown like we've had in the past, but it's definitely a bottom shelf (or at least near it) bourbon. Check our our tasting review and stay for the bottom shelf showdown.
Rye whiskey is definitely having a resurgence, and Michter's has been producing crowd pleasing whiskey's over the past few years. Is their single barrel Rye keeping Rye and bourbon fans happy?
