You know it is always a great thing when we get a new whiskey suggested and even better when it is brand new on the market. We had the opportunity to try out the Yellowstone Select Kentucky Straight Bourbon for our three great ways of tasting whiskey. We gotta thank Maggie for this introduction to our bourbon and give our feedback during the tasting… Did we like it? Did we run away? Did we have some great moments during this podcast? All of your answers can be learned during our podcast. Train.. Train…
As we always do for our blog, we like to take something out of the podcast and discuss it in more detail. The biggest thing we talked about after the podcast was one simple name, BEAM… A name that is etched in whiskey history for over 200 years and when the heritage is brought into the spirit, you have high expectations. Neither of the hosts are shy by saying we are huge Jim Beam drinkers and are finding a lot more bourbon’s and whiskey’s that a “Beam” family member has had their hands in making or producing it. So that was our conversation point when we were letting some of our fellow whiskey drinkers try the Yellowstone before we recorded our podcast.
To be honest, both of the hosts were a little confused with this bourbon upfront just by the feedback we got from our whiskey patrons in the bar. The confusion was really based upon the lack of consistency in the feedback we got from everybody. So and so tasted this and not that.. So and so had a burn while others felt nothing.. Granted we talk about that during the podcast and give our insight on what we tasted vs the notes that were provided from the Distillers PR Agency (which we both loved they reached out to us in general about this spirit).
