Halo Single Malt Mates,
I assume you would be shocked to know that I sometimes showcase non Scotch Whisky. Aye Laddie or Lassie, I sometimes do.
Here is one collectable that has shown up on Flaviar.com
Blade & Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon
This tasty-train of Bourbon will one day come to an end, so make sure you get a sip.
Founded by Julian “Pappy” Van Winkle himself, The Stitzel-Weller Distillery is stuff of Bourbon legend, where some of the most sought after Bourbons were once made.
Since the distillery was closed in 1992, Whiskey fans have screamed for more magic juice from this mythological still. Diageo has responded by pulling off some alchemy and blending the last casks solera-stye with other premium Bourbons to give us Blade and Bow Bourbon.
The last drops of Bourbon from a legendary still, squeezed into a bottle.
The Stitzel-Weller Distillery is stuff of Bourbon legend. It was founded on Derby Day in 1935 by Julian “Pappy” Van Winkle himself and some of the most legendary Bourbons and brands were made there. The distillery itself was closed in 1992 and is now a museum-like adjunct of Bulleit Bourbon Experience, owned by Diageo. But there is a lot of left-over Weller Bourbon in the storage lofts, along with “orphan” casks from other distilleries. Blade & Bow Bourbon blends these Bourbons solera-style to produce their range of two Whiskeys.
Blade & Bow Bourbon Straight Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey… the first thing you might notice is there is no age statement. Don’t let that throw you. Since this is a blend of orphan casks, accurately stating the age would be a near impossibility. But this is all premium aged spirit aged in all the right ways, and blended from some of the finest Bourbon distilleries in the world. It’s rich and thick and you should judge it with the tongue. And due to the fact that no more Whiskey flows from the stills at the Stitzel-Weller Distillery, this tasty-train will one day come to an end, so make sure you get a sip first.
I am mentioning this as it will be a collectable for reals.
To the rapturous, wild, and ineffable pleasure
Of drinking at somebody else’s expense.
