A big shoutout to @starlight_distillery for sending me these limited release expressions from their Carl T. Huber’s lineup. Starlight Distillery is producing some really great standard Bourbons and ryes that are 4-5+ years old, so I’m excited to see what they’ve done by taking those standards and doing a secondary finish. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On the left is their 90° Bourbon that is a blend of 4-6 year old barrels that are then finished for 6-8 months in Oloroso sherry barrels imported from Spain. They describe the sherry barrels as imparting notes of dried cherry and orange citrus to their already flavorful flagship Bourbon. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On the right is their 96° small batch Bourbon that is aged 4 years in new, charred American Oak and then transferred to unused Seguin Moureau vanilla toast barrels to age for another 8 months. They describe the process as providing intense oak notes, enhanced vanilla, and mellowed rye spiciness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I cannot wait to get into these. Stay tuned for more to come on these expressions. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you want to learn more about Starlight Distillery check out the latest Podcast from @bourbonlens that was released today. It’s a great listen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you have a favorite secondary finished craft Bourbon or rye? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #urbanbourbonist #urbanbourbon #starlightdistillery #craftwhiskey #craftbourbon #smallbusiness #craftdistillery #bourbonwhiskey #indianabourbon #bourbonenthusiast #bourbonfinds #whiskeyconsensus #whiskeycollection #bourboncollection #limitedrelease #popthecork #bottlepopping #bottlephotography #bourbonhunting #bourbonlover #dramoftheday #dailydram #thebourbonleague #bottlecollection #bourbontrail #bourboncountry #pappyvanwinkle #americanwhiskey #whiskeydrinker #drinkbourbon

Today's whiskey and vinyl pairing is JW Dant Bottled-in-Bond with The Mix-up by the Beastie Boys. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ JW Dant BiB is one of those pours that simply delivers. It’s another classic in the long line of bottled-in-bond bourbons made by Heaven Hill. You put it in the glass and it comes through with great aroma and flavor. On the nose it is a bowl of fruit with apple, banana, and some tropical hunts along with baking spice, corn, oak, and vanilla. On the palate some nuttiness, green apple, caramel corn, pepper, oak, and some toffee/butterscotch as it sits for a bit. It has a medium/long finish with lingering baking spice, black pepper, and oak. For the price point of around $20 for a 1 liter bottle this is one of the best values you can find. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ten years prior to the release of "The Mix-Up" the Beastie Boys did put out a compilation album of instrumental tracks pulled from Check Your Head and Ill Communication, but this 2007 release was intentionally recorded as an instrumental project. It was a bit of a reaction to their prior album "To the 5 Boroughs" which was entirely a rap album. They wanted to get back to playing instruments and have fun without thinking too hard. That’s how Adrock (Adam Horowitz) tells the story of the album in The Beastie Boys Book. This is an album to just sit with while enjoying a pour of whiskey. It has a great jazz-funk-rock-soul-Latin vibe running throughout the record and makes for a great Sunday afternoon listen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are you listening to and drinking today? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #urbanbourbonist #urbanbourbon #bakersbourbon #kentuckybourbon #beastieboys #whiskeypairing #bottlepopping #instrumentalmusic #bourbonfinds #bottledinbond #vinyllovers #instabourbon #whiskeyandvinyl #bourbontrail #kentuckybourbon #pappyvanwinkle #whiskeyconsensus #bourbonporn #bourbonlover #instabourbon #instawhiskey #bourbongram #whiskeygram #dailydram #bourboncountry #bourbonenthusiast #bourbonporn #bourbonlife #whiskeylife #heavenhill

I want to give a shoutout to @big_escambia_spirits and to Seth Dettling and his family. There are a lot of great people in the world of whiskey and Seth is one of the best. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now is the time to support our favorite craft distilleries more than ever.

87%-13% That was the final tally in the fan voting for last night's @sundaynightfights Final Four matchup between Four Roses Small Batch and Jim Beam Devil's Cut. The fan favorite was Four Roses, by the largest margin in SNF history. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But as you can see from the 📸, Devil's Cut pulled off the upset. And it did it in pretty impressive fashion, defeating Four Roses SmB by a score of 5-1 on the scorecards. Mikey @thebourbonandryeclub scored the bout 3-0 in favor of Devil's Cut. I scored it 2-1 in favor of Devil's Cut, giving 1 vote to Four Roses SmB for having what I thought was the better nose. Ultimately, Four Roses SmB drank a bit flat last night and didn't provide the well-rounded drinking experience that Devil's Cut did. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Devil's Cut now moves on to the Championship of the SNF 90° Bottle Tournament to face another heavy-hitter ... # 1 seed Buffalo Trace. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Do you think Devil's Cut can take home the 🏆? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #urbanbourbonist #urbanbourbon #thebourbonleague #thebourbonandryeclub #bourbonwhiskey #instagramlive #buffalotrace #fourroses #whiskeylove #dailydram #dramoftheday #bourbongram #bourbonhunting #bourbonenthusiast #bourbonporn #whiskeygram #whiskeylife #bourbontrail #bourboncountry #kentuckybourbon #whiskeycollection #kentuckystraightbourbon #oldbardstown #sundaynightfights #japanesewhisky #bourbontrail #jimbeam

What can I say about this #socialdistancing pour but WOW. This came courtesy of Chris (@urbanbourbonist), just a stand-up Chicago guy with a great palate and even keener sense of style and hair. If you don't know him, change that. He is one of the windy city's finest. Cheers to you, Chris.

Today's whiskey and vinyl pairing is the new Baker's Single Barrel with Tom Jones' Greatest Hits. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Baker's has been reinvented by Jim Beam from an under-the-radar small batch product to a smartly designed, single barrel product with a detailed age statement label on the neck. I think the single barrel is an upgrade and I look forward to seeing how the age statement evolves. I was able to get an 8yr 6mo bottle and have since seen the age statements creep under 8yrs, but I've also heard there were some 9yr bottles that have been released. This bottle has stewed dark fruit, cherry, vanilla, and carmel on the nose. The palate has toasted nuts, vanilla, cherry cola, and oak. The finish is medium long with warm cinnamon and cooked dark fruits. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tom Jones is a classic baritone crooner that has continually adapted to popular music and has reinvented himself many times over. His reinventions were mostly about keeping his crooning style the same, but singing over backing music of all genres, including country, pop, rock n' roll, dance, and even techno. He has performed for nearly 60 years and at age 79 he is still touring worldwide. This greatest hits album illustrates Jones' genius of adapting between genres from orchestral pop on "It's Not Unusual", to country on "Green Green Grass of Home", to lounge on "I'll Never Fall in Love Again" ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are you listening to and drinking this afternoon? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #urbanbourbonist #urbanbourbon #bakersbourbon #kentuckybourbon #tomjones #whiskeypairing #bottlepopping #greatesthits #bourbonfinds #singlebarrel #vinyllovers #instabourbon #whiskeyandvinyl #bourbontrail #kentuckybourbon #pappyvanwinkle #whiskeyconsensus #bourbonporn #bourbonlover #instabourbon #instawhiskey #bourbongram #whiskeygram #dailydram #bourboncountry #bourbonenthusiast #bourbonporn #bourbonlife #whiskeylife #jimbeam

We are back this weekend for the second Final Four matchup in the @sundaynightfights 90 proof bottle tournament. Tune in this Sunday 3/29 LIVE right here on Instagram at 8p CT / 9p ET to see which bottle @thebourbonandryeclub and I send to the tournament finals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last Sunday there was a split decision on our scorecards in the Buffalo Trace vs. Old Bardstown fight, so the pre-fight fan voting broke the tie and sent Buffalo Trace on to the Championship. It awaits the winner of this week's bout between the 2 seed Four Roses Small Batch and the 3 seed Jim Beam Devil's Cut. In the first round of the tourney Devil's Cut handily defeated the 6 seed Ezra Brooks Bourbon while Four Roses SmB received a bye. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Which bottle do you think will advance to take on Buffalo Trace in the SNF Championship? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #urbanbourbonist #urbanbourbon #thebourbonleague #thebourbonandryeclub #bourbonwhiskey #instagramlive #buffalotrace #fourroses #whiskeylove #dailydram #dramoftheday #bourbongram #bourbonhunting #bourbonenthusiast #bourbonporn #whiskeygram #whiskeylife #bourbontrail #bourboncountry #kentuckybourbon #whiskeycollection #kentuckystraightbourbon #oldbardstown #sundaynightfights #japanesewhisky #bourbontrail #jimbeam

I am absolutely loving this @fourrosesbourbon Small Batch Select. I was really happy to grab it last month right when it hit Chicago for the first time. For me, it's such an upgrade over the Regular Small Batch. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Select has well-rounded flavors of berries, vanilla, orchard fruits and some punchy oak with a nice long finish that's dotted with mint and cinnamon. It's no surprise that everything is intensified in this expression with an additional 14 proof points and being non-chill filtered compared to the Regular Small Batch. This is definitely my favorite new permanent release from the “Big 7” distilleries (Buffalo Trace, Four Roses, Heaven Hill, Jim Beam, Maker’s Mark, Wild Turkey, Brown-Forman). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What is your favorite new permanent release from the Big 7? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #urbanbourbon #urbanbourbonist #fourroses #fourrosesbourbon #smallbatch #newreleases #thirstythursdays #bourbonenthusiast #whiskeyconsensus #thebourbonleague #kentuckybourbon #bottlephotography #bottleshot #popthecork #bottleporn #bottlepoppin #pappyvanwinkle #wellerbourbon #bourbonfinds #bourbonwhiskey #bourbongram #americanwhiskey #scotchwhisky #japanesewhisky #whiskeyporn #whiskeylife #bourbonporn #whiskeyporn #whiskeylovers #whiskeybarrel

I finished off a bottle of Jack Daniel's barrel proof last night, but the bottle is too cool to toss, so I'm going to reuse it as a decanter for a daily drinker. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ WT 101 Bourbon and Old Fo rye fit the daily drinker criteria, and the bottle designs are pretty unremarkable, so I want to transfer one of them into the decanter. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Three questions: 1) Which bottle should get the "upgrade"? 2) Do you use a decanter? 3) If so, what's in it? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #urbanbourbonist #urbanbourbon #thebourbonleague #classicbourbon #wildturkey101 #oldforester #decanter #jackdanielssinglebarrel #dailydrinker #wildturkeybourbon #bourbonfinds #bourbonenthusiast #bourbonhunting #bourbonlife #whiskeylife #whiskeycollection #whiskeyconsensus #bottlephotography #bourboncollection #bourboncocktails #japanesewhisky #americanwhiskey #scotchwhisky #bourbongram #bourbonhunter #bottlepoppin #popthecork #btac #pappyvanwinkle

Last night in the @sundaynightfights 90° bottle tournament the seeds held and the #1 seed held on for a victory. But it wasn't easy. After 3 rounds, the fight was scored a tie on our cards with each bottle garnering 3 votes. Mikey gave the edge to Buffalo Trace 2-1 and I gave the edge to Old Bardstown 2-1. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But there can be no ties in a tournament, so the decision went to the pre-fight fan voting. In that voting a whopping 80% of the fans voted for BT, setting a new SNF record for the most lopsided vote. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Buffalo Trace now moves on to the Championship round and awaits the winner of the other Final Four matchup between the #2 seed Four Roses Small Batch and #3 Jim Beam Devil's Cut. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What do you think of this result? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #urbanbourbonist #urbanbourbon #thebourbonleague #thebourbonandryeclub #bourbonwhiskey #instagramlive #buffalotrace #fourroses #whiskeylove #dailydram #dramoftheday #bourbongram #bourbonhunting #bourbonenthusiast #bourbonporn #whiskeygram #whiskeylife #bourbontrail #bourboncountry #kentuckybourbon #whiskeycollection #kentuckystraightbourbon #oldbardstown #sundaynightfights #japanesewhisky #bourbontrail #jimbeam

Today's whiskey and vinyl pairing is a Willett Purple Foil selected by @dadsdrinkingbourbon with Purple Rain from The Purple One. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Purple Rain was Prince’s sixth album but it was the one that launched him into superstardom. It is the soundtrack to his movie of the same name. The album is Prince embracing pop-rock and infusing it with R&B, dance, and classic 80s synthesized psychedelic performance. The album reached number one on the Billboard charts and both “When Doves Cry” and “Let’s Go Crazy” we’re number one singles. In 1984 Prince became one of only 3 artists to have the number one album, single, and film in the United States at the same time. Only The Beatles and Elvis Presley had done it before. It’s one of the greatest selling albums of all time with over 25 million copies sold. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This 7yr Willett Family Estate Bourbon selected by John and Zeke from the Dads Drinking Bourbon podcast is dubbed "Stop and Smell the Roses". It is one of the most pleasing Bourbons I have tasted. The nose is sweet and floral with a bold cinnamon spice and light grassiness. For 127° there is no real detectable ethanol. On the palate it's sweet caramel corn followed by mouth enveloping spicy cinnamon heat, some green herbs, and a finish that goes on forever and dances around on the back of your throat. Wow, what a pour! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Reminder: Check out my Spotify playlist with tracks curated from all of my Sunday whiskey and vinyl pairings.
