    Similar to Wild Turkey actually. Nothing I'd drive out of my way for.
    Bullit. We can get Bullit here, not sure of age tho. I had a bottle years ago but gave it away as a present so never actually tried it.

    Sounds like I made a decent choice.
    Oh and cheers, its about a week off. I've been trying some blends recently.

    It's MGP stuff shipped to Diageo for bottling. MGP is in Indiana so they may have a Kentucky source for their Bourbon. I know they produce their Rye.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diageo

    MGP can produce some good stuff, at the bottlers price point of course.

    There Redemption Rye is very,very good , Outstanding . https://www.totalwine.com/spirits/am...E&gclsrc=aw.ds

    Yes, in fact rumor has it a lot of brands buy barrels from them to keep up with demand,they are huge.
    Templeton actually got in some trouble claiming to make and bottle their own ,big problem there is no Templeton Distillery.
    So far the best stocks of Rye go into Redemption because it is their own brand name. They even have a 18 year old Redemption Rye but it is expensive and hard to come by.

    Quality dram gets a quality glass.

    Paul John select Cask “Peated” Indian Single malt for me.
    55.5% non chill filtered. No artificial colours or flavours.

    TASTING NOTES
    EYE
    Light amber

    NOSE
    Peat, pears, fresh banana, savory spice, honey, malt and toasted pastries with a light floral note.

    PALATE
    Peat, pears, banana, spice, honey, roasted malt and a touch of acetone and a soft fruit candy sweetness.

    FINISH
    Long -> Orchard fruit, banana, smoke and vanilla candy.

    BALANCE, BODY & FEEL
    Good sense of balance, full body and a soft oily feel.

    Do I agree with that? Mostly. Not sure I am getting the acetone, which in my book is a good thing.
    This is not what I was expecting from a peated malt. A pleasant surprise, as the peat is not too overpowering, allowing the other subtle flavours to come through.
