Churchkey is bringing back the flat top beer. My take - this is a lot of extra work for the sake of nostalgia rather than more flavorful beer.

What do you think - good thing or bad?

Wild Turkey to Release New 81 Proof Rye

From the always informative Chuck Cowdery

There hasn’t been any kind of official announcement, but Wild Turkey is in the process of rolling out a new, 81° proof (40.5% ABV) version of Wild Turkey Rye, leading to some confusion about the status of the 101° proof (50.5% ABV) original. […]
Yes, an 81° proof version of Wild Turkey Rye is being introduced as a companion to the 81° proof version of Wild Turkey Bourbon that was introduced last year. However, the 101° proof version of Wild Turkey Rye is not being discontinued. It will, however, be in short supply for probably the rest of 2012 due to the recent surge in rye whiskey popularity, but it is not being discontinued and it will be back. Due to its temporary unavailability, it was expedient for the company to list 81 by replacing 101 in some states.

Awesome site. Tell it what you are listening to, it will serve up the proper drink for the occasion.

Check out these sunglass frames made from used Bushmills whisky barrels. Pretty cool, even if they are Protestant sunglasses. Anyone want to get me a pair?

Just tried Dogfish Head Noble Rot. Interesting beer. Saison made with botrytis infected voignier grapes. Very light. A little sweet. Definitely tart.
An interesting experiment, but not sure I’d make this a repeat purchase. My dollars will go back to Bitches Brew, 90 Minute IPA, and other favorite stand-byes from Dogfish Head.

Whisky Round Table: White Dog, New Make & Moonshine

Here at Whisky Party, we are fortunate enough to participate in The Whisky Round Table, a monthly discussion about all things whisky hosted by a great collection of our fellow whisky bloggers. 

The good folk at Edinburgh Whisky Blog are hosting this month’s conversation, and they asked a great question:

In recent years we’ve seen a good few releases of not-quite-whisky-yet or spirit-that-dares-to-command-a-price. Whether kissed by Quercus Robur tannins for 4 months or just plain clearac, do you think this is something new distilleries or ones with severely depleted stocks should be doing?


Go check out our answer, along with those of our fellow Round Table bloggers, over at Edinburgh Whisky Blog. And if you are on the Twitters and think this deserves a mention, please use the hashtag #WhiskyRoundTable.

WHISKYCAST EPISODE 359: MARCH 4, 2012

Time to shatter some long-cherished myths and legends about Bourbon, and Michael Veach will serve as our myth-buster this week. He’s the Bourbon historian at Louisville’s Filson Historical Society, and is also a member of the Bourbon Hall of Fame. In the news, Knob Creek and Wild Turkey release new rye whiskies, Ian Logan of Chivas Brothers updates last week’s story on Glen Keith’s revival, and we’ll catch up with Bill Samuels Jr. of Maker’s Mark.

In case you were wondering how to make moonshine (not that we advise you to try this at home …) #infographics
