We're back with another installment of the Bottom Shelf Bourbon Showdown. This time Senator's Club goes head to head against Henry McKenna. Not THAT Henry Mckenna - the cheap one. Take a look to see who wins and remember, we drink it so you don't have to. Also the only real rule is that a handle(1.75L) of "bourbon" needs to cost $25 or less and the winner is whichever one goes down easiest.
This week we're sampling a craft distillery from Nevada, Two Bitch Eureka Gold. This is from Two Bitch Distillery in Las Vegas, Nevada. We were feeling lucky, but did we find the motherlode or are we just a couple of fools? (I promise the puns don't get any better) . The Eureka Gold is Two Bitch's continual bourbon offering, and is a younger 2 year bourbon coming in at 92 proof.
Bourbon Famous takes on Rabbit Hole Heigold. This is a high rye offering and part of Rabbit Hole's recent re-branding after being bought by Pernod Ricard, a French alcohol company. Rabbit Hole isn't distributed in our state, so this bottle was actually sent to us by the distillery for review. Heigold is a 95 proof, 3 year old bourbon, that is 70% corn, 25% malted rye, and 5% malted barley. The rye is actually imported from Germany, since the name Heigold is from a German stone mason immigrant to Louisville, Kentucky. Rabbit Hole is naming more of their bourbons after people influential in Louisville history.
