W.L Weller Bourbon Is Actually Good

weller bourbon review

A few weeks ago, I published an article about some awesome and affordable bourbons that you should try. This week, I thought I would take it a step further by finding a dirt cheap, yet sippable bourbon. So, I took $10 to my local bottle shop and picked up a bottle of W.L Weller Special Reserve Kentucky Straight […]

5 Sip Worthy Bourbons that Won’t Break the Bank

Affordable Bourbons

When I first started drinking bourbon, I thought that there were two types: crazy cheap and Woodford Reserve. Thankfully, I’ve had bourbon loving friends like Spencer who have joined me on my journey to find well rounded, sip worthy bourbons that are affordable too. Every few months, I like to share my top 5 favorite […]

Wild Turkey 101 Kentucky Straight Bourbon

Wild Turkey 101 Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

In the hunt for lesser known bourbons, it seems as if I have mistakenly skipped over Wild Turkey*. Spencer, my partner at The Trot Line, has suggested over and over again that I pick up a bottle of Wild Turkey 101 and Rare Breed. At The Trot Line, we like to feature great products at […]

Four Roses Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey

Four Roses Bourbon

There are bourbons that I could go out and buy for $45 and up, and enjoy very much. Then there are a few (probably less) bourbons that I could spend $25 for, and fall completely head over heels over. These types (the less expensive) of bourbons don’t come around often, but Four Roses Small Batch […]

A few months ago, Charlie and Jim of American Spirit Whiskey invited me to join them at The Family Dog in Atlanta. I was coming down from Marietta, so I knew that I needed to leave a bit early to make it to Virginia-Highlands a few minutes early. Of course, I managed to take the […]

Eagle Rare 10 Year Old Bourbon

Eagle Rare 10 Year Single Barrel Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey

I don’t always stumble onto bourbons from the Buffalo Trace Distillery (call it bad luck), but when I do, I buy!  This past weekend, as I was deciding between restocking the Four Roses or Buffalo Trace, I ran into a bottle of Eagle Rare 10 Year Old.  After talking to Spencer while he was writing […]

Johnny Drum Private Stock Bourbon Review

We (the folks of The Trot Line) met up last weekend to have a meeting of the minds, and what meeting would be complete without a few glasses of Bourbon?  Before the meeting, Spencer and I met up at one of the best places to find great spirits in Atlanta, the H&F Bottleshop.  Unanimously, we […]

Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival Atlanta – A Fuzzy Recap

The 2012 Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival Tasting glass. Cheers!

It’s taken a full week, but I’ve finally drifted back to reality after experiencing what can only be described as heaven on earth, the Holy Grail of all Southern goodness – the Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Festival (BBB).  The festival made its way to Atlanta for the first time ever and, with breath that still […]
