Bourbon County, Seattle, USA and Noises Special Election Episode #6 (10/30/10) "Old Granddad Bonded Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey"

Drew says: Old Granddad bonded bourbon, crafted under government supervision, is among the best of the high rye content/high proof bourbons I've tasted and its pretty reasonably priced as well. For a 100 proof bourbon it doesn't burn like hell going down (like a certain Fighting Cock) which is much appreciated. It's strong but easily drinkable. There's no real point in mixing it with anything FYI. Good job government!

Jeremy says: Agreed, Old Granddad bonded is a fine choice for a high proof, budget bottle of bourbon. I guess Bourbon County, Seattle USA and Noises endorses the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897!

Bourbon County, Seattle, USA and Noises Special Spooky Halloween Episode #5 (10/24/10) "Ancient Age Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey"

Jeremy says: Ancient Age is a decent cheap bourbon. Don't buy it expecting anything that will taste very good, but if you want a simple bourbon that won't offend the naive palate then it is a decent affordable choice.

Drew says: Ancient Age is pretty unimpressive but okay for the price. Though, considering there's better and (slightly) cheaper bourbon out there (Evan Williams Green Label), I probably won't ever be buying a bottle of this again. Maybe I'll try a bottle of Ancient Ancient Age at some point as I hear that stuff is pretty good. It gets good marks for packaging design though.

Bourbon County, Seattle, USA and Noises Episode #4 (10/16/10) "Bulleit Bourbon Frontier Whiskey"

Jeremy Says: I enjoy Bulleit neat; It's a nice bourbon. Do not mix it with coke though, for some reason the two just don't go together well.

Drew Says: I concur. Very nice bourbon taken straight. More rye than your average bourbon but retains a smoothness. The flavor is weirdly combative with the flavor of Coke as Jeremy mentioned, not sure why, so don't plan on using it as a mixer. Considering its more towards the expensive end of the spectrum though you'll probably be drinking it neat anyway.
