I’m not sure where the time has gone, but it has been a wild year for sure. I hope this post finds you all getting ready to enjoy the holiday season with family and friends. I would like to thank you for taking time and visiting Sour Mash Manifesto, for commenting, and for sharing stories and insights on whiskey. I appreciate each of you for those contributions to the site. It’s clear a lot of people share a passion for whiskey.
As for me, I don’t plan on hibernating over the next 2-3 weeks. Coming up we have a series of Rye reviews – the 2011 Sazerac 18 year, Sazerac Rye Whiskey, and Willett 3 year Single Barrel Rye. In addition I will be reviewing a new one from High West called Son of Bourye, which is a blend of a younger bourbon and rye than it’s father – Bourye. I’ll also take a look at High West’s newest “silver” whiskey, OMG Pure rye, a nod to the Old Monongahela. Finally, we’ll get back to some entry level products with some reviews of Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7, Jim Beam “White Label”, and George Dickel No. 8. I’m sure there will be some others here and there as well, and it will be a fun few weeks. I hope you agree.
Lastly, I plan on joining the fray with some awards for a few specific categories for 2011. Like the whiskey world needs more awards, but there are some distilleries and bottles that deserve acknowledgement. Be on the look out for that very soon.
Drink well, but responsibly, this holiday my friends. All the best to you and yours!
