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..
After a month of travel, illness and general medicated hangover and took us a few weeks to get back on schedule. If you can’t self-medicate with whiskey, then that certainly won’t be a high point of the week. So we kicked off what was left over from our general illnesses, jumped into the studio and got back on track with our recording schedule.
As we said in the introduction, this was a bottle that we initially sampled during our trip to Bourbon Fest in Indianapolis in mid-December. $15, all you can drink.. No Proof is too high.. No sample is too small.. That was the motto of the day and sure enough, we found plenty of whiskeys that we are going to be reviewing this year. This bottle was one that Eric purchased for his own stache because lets face it, he loves a great Rye. Let me tell you, this Rye did not disappoint and for coming out of the box at 94 proof, it certainly didn’t stop the woooooooooo’s from being yelled at both Bourbon Fest and also behind the mic..
Sure during the podcast, we did try this Rye three ways but lets face it.. One way was the winner.. What was it? Can’t give you all of the details.. Listen to the podcast and find out…
Now, we have said it before and we will keep saying it again. We are so very greatly with the awesome line up of companies we are working with during this podcast. We like to think of each of our sponsors / partners as part of our extended Whiskey On The Rails family. When you get to pair up such great products, it is really fun to come out and record every week because we stand behind everything we talk about and enjoy each of the products we get to use during the show. Even Eric and Rob get along during the podcast because of these great products and that right there is a miracle..
