Dram & Draught’s Buffalo Trace Single Barrel Select
Served Right out of the Barrel – $12 for 2oz
Rare and Vintage Whiskey (price per ounce)
Wild Turkey 8 year (late 1980’s) – $100
Wild Turkey has been distilled by the same company, in the same location, and by the same master distiller for the past 60 years, but that doesn’t mean it has always been made the same way. One taste of this vintage 8 year, which has been discontinued in the US for over a decade, and you will wonder why they don’t make bourbon like this anymore.
Old Grand Dad 86 proof (late 1980’s) – $100
Originally produced by National Distillers before being sold to Jim Beam in 1989, OGD was sold as an everyday pour. However, the late 80’s were considered a glut era in Kentucky Bourbon. Inventories skyrocketed as sales were lagging and distillers were competing for sales with quality and age. Due to this competition, many of today’s bourbon enthusiasts consider the National Distillers version of OGD some of the best tasting vintage bourbon available (if you can find it).
Old Grand Dad 114 (late 1980’s) – $100
Once considered the crown jewel of the National Distiller line, OGD 114 has incredible flavor without the heat associated with many of today’s higher proof bourbons. The current version of this product is tasty, but try it head to head with our “glut era” and decide for yourself.
Hill and Hill Bonded (1940’s) – $125
Once considered a lower end offering of the National Distillers line, Hill and Hill was commonly sold as an 80 proof pour in the late 80s, though most considered it to be an exceptionally flavorful pour for its proof. Fortunately, we have obtained a rare 1940’s version bottled in bond (100 proof). Sit back and enjoy this rich long gone flavor. This is one of the best whiskeys on the shelf.
December Releases (price per ounce)
Pappy Van Winkle 23 Year – $123
No description necessary.
Four Roses Limited Edition Small Batch Barrel Strength – $18
A remarkably balanced barrel strength whiskey with aromas of allspice and vanilla bean with hints of apricot. Bright fruit on the palate particularly sweet cherry with light oak notes. Rich long finish with a little cinnamon spice.
George T Stagg – $40
Uncut, unfiltered and intense. Toffee sweetness and dark chocolate and vanilla notes. Tobacco and coffee on the finish with dark berry and molasses.
Parker’s Heritage 11 Year Single Barrel Bourbon 122 proof – $20
This year’s expression of Parker’s Heritage comes from the late Parker Beam’s ‘favorite rickhouse location,’ Deatsville. Deeply roasty, with lovely rich notes of char, roasted corn, citrus pith, sandalwood, toasted nuts, leather, and smoke. The finish is long and warming, with a nice raisin-like quality.
John E Fitzgerald Very Special Reserve – $150
Comprised of 12 barrels of wheated Bourbon produced at the Stitzel-Weller Distillery, original home of Heaven Hill’s Old Fitzgerald and direct ancestor to the celebrated Larceny brand, this ultra-rare, highly allocated release offers both an extraordinary sensory experience and a glimpse at the DNA of Bourbon lore. Heaven Hill acquired the Old Fitzgerald line of wheated Bourbons—the flagship brand that legendary whiskey man Pappy Van Winkle produced at his original Stitzel-Weller Distillery in Shively, KY—in 1999, seven years after these barrels were filled and put up in the Stitzel-Weller rickhouses.
