Got some new, highly anticipated bourbons from an Oregon based whiskey bottler in today. I'll let the company regale you with the details:
3 Year Old American Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Aged in new white oaks casks, our American straight bourbon consists of 36% rye. The complexity of the whiskey contains spicy undertones of cloves with a twist of honeysuckles. The pleasing balances of the spice create a long, smooth finish.
2 Year Old Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Port Cask Finish
Our 2 year old straight bourbon has been aged in new white oaks casks and consists of 36% rye. It is finished in 10 year old Tawny Port Barrels. The youthfulness of the bourbon with the age of the tawny port barrels make a perfect match on the palate, creating a longer finish.
You want these!

Got some awesome new releases in the shop. The folks at Jim Beam decided to release a special single barrel version of their acclaimed Knob Creek bourbon. Also finally got the long awaited Bulleit Rye, which struck me as remarkably smooth and floral when I tried it, a slight contrast from their more robust release of Bulleit Bourbon. New in:
-Knob Creek Single Barrel 60%(120 proof)
-Bulleit Rye 45%(90 proof)
-Old Potrero Hotaling's 15 year single malt 50%(100 proof)
