I hope your new year has gotten off to a great start. I’m starting out the new years with apologies for few posts of late. Its been a busy 2013 so far. But rest assured – there’s a number of new reviews and posts on the horizon. Namely – Four Roses 2012 Limited Edition Small Batch, as well as my votes for American Whiskey, Distillery, and Craft whiskey of the year. I assure you – no pomp and circumstance with those awards.
In addition, if you haven’t heard the news, Diageo has fired up the still at Stizel-Weller Distillery. John Hansell of Whisky Advocate broke the news this week after it got leaked and rumblings began to start. Chuck Cowdery and Sku also have good posts on this subject.
As for, obviously I think S-W distilling again is great for whiskey lovers. We all have to have conservative expectations and see where things go. Pappy quality bourbon takes time, but reportedly they have some excellent stocks of older barrels as well. Regardless, it will be fun to see how things go.
More to come folks!
