Episode 82 – Jack Daniels Single Barrel Rye To Take The Lead – Thanks to a visit during Bourbon Fest in Indianapolis, one of the hosts had the opportunity to not only test but purchase a bottle of whiskey from Jack Daniels.    Alright, so that isn’t that big of a deal but for $15, we certainly stumbled upon some high price whiskey to sample the entire day and then buy it at a reduced cost.   Does that sound like a bigger deal?   Well if it does, then you should go and try a bottle of Jack Daniels Single Barrel Rye, at full price or free if you have a friend who purchased a bottle.   That is what we did this week since Eric purchased the bottle.   Where does it rank in 2017?   Maybe the name gives a hint..  Maybe not..  Find out during this podcast..   Train..  Train..
