A buddy of mine had been after me for a while to let him try the bottle of E.H. Taylor Cured Oak I was lucky enough to get, so when our schedules finally aligned and we decided to make a tasting event of the whole thing (because why drink one bourbon when you can drink five).

I.W. Harper Bourbon has been around for a long time. It was founded in the 1879 by Isaac Wolfe and Bernard Bernheim and has pretty much been around ever since. For some reason (I guess to have a less German-sounding name) they decided to go with Harper instead of Bernheim when naming it and I.W. Harper […]Read more "Review: I.W. Harper 15 Year"
One off Imperial Stout aged in Tequila barrels. It should be interesting to see what Prairie does with the tequila barrels, having only tried their draft only Tequila Barrel Aged Branson Jamboree in the past. I’m a little nervous. Be gentle, OK-Si. Company: Prairie Artisan Ales Location: Tulsa, OK. Brewed in Krebs, OK ABV: 12% […]Read more "Review: Prairie Artisan Ales OK-Si"

Anthem Brewing Company is putting out some really great beers here in Oklahoma. They have a fantastic focus on barrel aged releases that rarely disappoint, and they bring some different things to the table compared to other local breweries that make them a bit more accessible to those that don’t want big and strong beers, but just […]Read more "Review: Anthem IPA"
I’ve had a fair amount of Maker’s Mark in my day. Any time I’m at my Dad’s house, there is always a 1.75 liter bottle above the fridge. It’s the only bourbon he drinks, and if I’m there, it’s what I’m drinking too. I’ve tried to get him to branch out a bit by gifting […]Read more "Review: Maker’s Mark Cask Strength"
An early favorite from the Tulsa brewery, Okie has not been in production for a couple of years now. Originally released in 750 ml corked and caged bottles, this batch of the 12% ABV Imperial Brown Ale has been released in a more manageable 12 ounce bottle but a higher ABV than the last release.

35 Maple Street is a company based out of Sonoma, California that produces the Masterson’s line of Rye, Wheat, and Barley Canadian whiskeys. Bib & Tucker is the company’s first step into the bourbon business, and it’s a very interesting one. In an interview with WhiskyCast’s Mark Gillespie, 35 Maple Street’s COO Richard Zeller stated the juice being purchased […]Read more "Review: Bib & Tucker"
Before we get too far into how this stuff tastes, I would like to briefly ramble about something else given that this is the first bourbon reviewed on this site from a Non-Distiller Producer. One thing you learn when you start getting into bourbon is that everything on that shelf of your local liquor store was […]Read more "Review: Noah’s Mill"
I had spotted this bottle in the last week or so in a few stores, and the stuff seemed to be going quick so I snagged one for two reasons: 1) I recently had a glass of Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel at a local bar and thought it was fantastic. 2) I’ve been on a […]Read more "Review: Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel Oklahoma Selection"
