Getting our first taste of Woodford Reserve Distillery Series: Barrel Finished Rye.
This Rye has been finished in a custom second barrel made of new American oak that’s been lightly charred and heavily toasted.
So what’s that mean? Toasted barrels are more gently heated, giving the wood a dark brown “toast” rather than a blackened char. This technique gives more spice to the whiskey (apposed to sweetness).
There is clear spiciness upfront, followed by flavors of allspice, nutmeg, vanilla and dry fruit. An interesting rye and one that we’ll be coming back to soon. —
Availability is limited, only at the Woodford Reserve distillery and select Kentucky retailers.
We are having the last days of our trip in US and what a nice trip it has been.
I've taught from Bowling Green to Columbia and all the way Nashville in the forms of seminars, workshops and regular classes. Met tons of friends on the way and made as many new ones. Jiu-jitsu keeps on giving.
I had equally fun in all the places and hopefully was able to spread some of my jiu-jitsu.
Today we had another awesome day. Patchez and Andi had put together an open mat and potluck at their house. A lot of friends showed up and we had tons of fun!
Isn't Patchez's home gym (in the picture) amazing? ☺
With great sadness and a heavy heart. I bring you a glass of bourbon in a mason jar. The patriots lost again in unacceptable fassion. All around they looked like trash. It would have been a better game if they didn't show up. I hear the haters saying that this is just the september team. And the real team will show up in october forward. But thats not good enough for me.
Who likes medieval-style castles and bourbon whiskey? Answer: everyone. So you’ll be glad to hear that Castle & Key Distillery is back open!
After 40 years of neglect, a historic distillery is about to reopen on 19 September 2018 in Kentucky. Castle & Key Distillery has announced the official opening of its newly restored 130-year-old castle distillery in Millville, Kentucky. After much anticipation the 113-acre property that was first built in 1887 by legendary distiller Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor Jr is back after more than 40 years of abandonment and more than four years of restoration. The European-inspired castle, peristyle springhouse and sunken gardens will host keen bourbon fans for a curated look at the iconic structures, the brand’s distilling approach and cocktail tastings in what has long been celebrated as the birthplace of bourbon tourism. Kentucky’s first female master distiller of bourbon since Prohibition, Marianne Eaves will distill spirits on-site from scratch with locally-sourced ingredients. Castle & Key Distillery is also the longest aging warehouse of its design in the world, measuring 534 feet from end to end with the capacity for 35,000 barrels. While we wait for its bourbon to age, there is Castle & Key’s Restoration Release Gin and Vodka, which like all the distillery’s spirits, were created with a bourbon or rye recipe and will be released in 2019. “For the last four years we’ve worked incredibly hard to create a destination where discerning tastemakers can experience history in motion,” said Will Arvin, Founding Partner. “Many people thought this day would never come, but we’re proud that we had the courage to keep pursuing this dream.”
The tiny dot you see at the end of this railroad is a small tunnel. I'm surprised at how often railroad scenes can be so photogenic. I drove over these tracks 3-4 times to get a shot I was satisfied with. #appalachia#virgie#kentucky#railroad
