Bourbon County, Seattle, USA and Noises Episode #10 (8/28/11) "Basil Hayden's Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey"

Drew: Basil Hayden's bourbon is pretty good stuff. It has a bit of a snap to it. The initial flavor is slightly sweet but it finishes with a little bite. Pretty mild flavor overall. Not shabby in the least, however, for the price that this gets sold for, I don't know if it's really worth it. Unless you prefer your bourbon bottle come dressed in a belt and tunic.

Jeremy: Basil Hayden's a light, crisp bourbon - easy and fun to drink neat. I like it and would drink it more often if it was cheaper and not dressed up like a server at one of those medieval knight themed restaurants.

Bourbon County, Seattle, USA and Noises Episode #7 (11/23/10) "Wild Turkey Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey"

Jeremy: Surprisingly I have never tasted Wild Turkey before tonight. I'm glad that Drew brought it over. It's an excellent bourbon that goes down nicely even at 101 proof. Celebrate Thanksgiving in style and drink some Wild Turkey before you feel bad from overeating.

Drew:Wild Turkey is one of the more famous bourbons out there, due to it being namechecked by illustrious folk such as Hunter S. Thompson. It's definitely the smokiest of the bourbons I've tasted as well but it still goes down smooth unlike some of the extra smokey scotchs. It's certainly one of the best 100+ proof bourbons and it's not too expensive at that. A worthy addition to any liquor cabinet and with Thanksgiving on the way, there's no better excuse to indulge yourself and fill up on Turkey.

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.

Bourbon County, Seattle, USA and Noises Episode #3 (9/19/10) "Elijah Craig Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey"

Jeremy Says: Elijah Craig lives up to the hype. It is a nice bourbon. Flavorful on the tongue with just the right amount of heat on the throat, my only complaint would be that it may be a bit sweet at times. Overall though, it is an excellent drink and well worth the money. I'm guessing at this price point you can't do much better - but we will keep looking! If you enjoy drinking your bourbon neat, then Elijah Craig is a good choice.

Drew says: "Early Times is a decent cheap whiskey. It has a bit too strong of an alcohol taste for such a low proof. It tastes a lot better if you let it sit and open up though. It does have a very nice, caramel-y scent too especially after sitting out for a while."
