    Had the chance to swing by A. Smith Bowman Distillery yesterday on my way down to Richmond for work. Was able to snap some pics and thought Id share:

    threadbombing (in that there's not even a small chance I'm going to read through 16 pages of posts about bourbon), but a shout-out to black dirt bourbon from here in the Hudson Valley. This past fall, all the local restaurants (we're in a "money desert" compared to anything else in any direction, but we have the best cooking school in the country (debatable, but easily top 2-3), so we have crazy-good restaurants for an area whose local economy seems to be dominated by higher education and whatever happens 10 years after IBM leaves) were doing Manhattans (and many were as good as the ones I had in serious restaurants on the namesake island). The best ones were done with Black Dirt bourbon. Serious quality, reasonably priced, tough to find (elsewhere).

    Good to know. My only experience with Black Dirt is their apple brandy (which was very good).

    Planning an anniversary trip to Lexington KY with the Buffalo Trace distillery as one of our stops (along with Mammoth Cave and the horse park for her). Pretty stoked and i've been hinting for her to get me one of the BTAC bottles for my present.

    Anyone try Evan Williams 2004 single barrel vintage? Just picked up a bottle bottled 11/13 aged 9years. Read reviews it was sweet but I love makers so I'm guessing I'll enjoy it.

    Still drinking my Four Roses single barrel. Damn this stuff is harsh when uncut.

    Thanks to a super friendly shop owner (really cool guy to talk booze with too), I sampled some Jefferson Reserve and some Bulleit 10 year bourbon (I really like Bulleit's regular bourbon and their rye - in fact bought a bottle of both of those in this particular visit).

    The Bulleit 10 was nice, but in agreeance with the owner, probably not worth the extra $ (see?, I said he was cool).

    The Jefferson, however, was amazing! At $55 a bottle I had to pass... for *now*. But man, that was some tasty hooch! You guys ever try it?
