Sour Mash Manifesto

Bourbon and American Whiskey

About Jason

My name is Jason Pyle and I’m an American Whiskey enthusiast. I started Sour Mash Manifesto to help educate readers on American Whiskey.

Like most of you visiting this website, I have an immense passion for whiskey.  My interests in bourbon, rye, and other American Whiskeys began almost 20 or so years ago.  I developed and pursued the interest further – nosing, tasting, sipping, noting, reading, learning, and most importantly ENJOYING anything I could get my hands on.  It was a personal education of sorts and one that I am no less passionate about today.

Sour Mash Manifesto is not active with content any longer, but hopefully you will still find articles, reviews, and stories within that are relevant to you.

Thank you for visiting, and Drink your Whiskey!

  1. Jason,

    Thanks for all the whiskey reviews. When are we going to get some new reviews?


  2. Jason,

    Really enjoy your reviews but haven’t seen any in a long while. Looking forward to more — hope all is well with you and your family.

    – Bill

  3. Hey Jason,
    Glad to hear that all is still well and look forward to future posts! Just relocated to Nashville, TN from Charlotte, NC and would appreciate any suggestions on great whiskey bars in the area.

  4. You’ve not had a review in some time. Are you doing OK?

  5. Doing well Steven – hope you are doing well. Thanks for checking in.

  6. Good to hear from you Jason
    One of the few negatives of living in Australia is the lack and obscene price of bourbon…combined with a drinking culture where most of the populace thinks whiskey is what you mix with Coke to get drunk on, a conversation on the merits of good whiskey is as rare as a bottle of Old Grand Dad 100 proof.
    So coming across your reviews was a wonderful discovery.
    Like most sons of Eire I cut my teeth on Irish whiskey, but thanks to my Dad, bless his soul, and living in the USA, I came to love the robust complexity of American whiskey, and especially bourbon… Even now when visiting the US I’m amazed at how the things that you can buy late at night in a 7-11 in the US surpass so much of what we can find here in a boutique bottle shop…
    So I’m very happy indeed having you around to help navigate the whiskey scene across the pond and keeping me current on my favourite drop.
    And for that I just wish to say thanks mate, and here’s wishing you and your family a happy holidays and all the best in the New Year.

  7. Oh where, oh where has Jason gone?

  8. What – you stop drinking bourbon? Why no reviews? I have always trusted your nose and taste buds? Hope all is OK with you you and yours!
