How do you like the gold? I think it’s great but I think sftb is a little better.

I definitely liked the Gold more than the regular. I think it be benefits from the extra proof (103 v 93). I haven't tried the SFTB yet.

I did a line up of the regular, green, black, gold and sftb. Gold and sftb were the standouts...I dont remember off hand how the black and green did vs the regular. I remember thinking one of them was not worth the effort...maybe both vs the regular.

Great read:

The Essence of Jimmy Russell


Today is a special day – a special day for Jimmy Russell and Wild Turkey; more importantly, a special day for bourbon.

September 10, 2019 marks Master Distiller Jimmy Russell’s sixty-fifth anniversary at Wild Turkey Distilling Co. Sixty-five years. Incredible. Who works at the same distillery (or any job, really) for sixty-five years? Almost no one … except James Cassidy Russell.

Pardon my French, but Jimmy Russell is a bourbon badass. I don’t mean that in a flippant, irreverent sense. Not at all. I mean that in the most earnest sense. Jimmy Russell is a bona-fide bourbon badass. His experience, mature beyond his years. His humility, as unfiltered as his stubbornness. His skill, as bold and genuine as a straight whiskey gets. Author Fred Minnick once said to me, “Wild Turkey is the quintessential bourbon story.” To that I’ll add that its indisputable centerpiece is Jimmy Russell. Rock has Elvis. Country has Hank. Soul has Marvin. Bourbon has Jimmy.

You’ll likely read a lot about Jimmy over the next few weeks. And you should. After all, Jimmy’s sixty-fifth should be celebrated indefinitely as far as I’m concerned. But instead of discussing Jimmy’s life and times with bourbon (they’ll be plenty of opportunities for that), I’m going to focus on his longstanding contributions to the brand itself. “The Essence of Jimmy Russell,” if you will.

Imagine our world fifty years from now. Picture a bottle of Wild Turkey bourbon. What do you see? 101, most likely. Or maybe it’s Rare Breed or Kentucky Spirit. But chances are you’re thinking of an expression that wouldn’t exist without Jimmy Russell. I know, I know. I hear the comments from the bourbon geek peanut gallery already. Yes, Wild Turkey 101 existed before Jimmy Russell started distilling bourbon. Just hold your Glencairn. I’ll get to that in a bit. ??

Evening guys ,,,

This is actually pretty good. Sourced barrels but excited we have a distillery doing a rye/whisky.

About the Rye:

River Basin Distillery brings the history of American whiskey full circle. In the 19th century, New Orleans was the whiskey drinking capital of the nation. Distillers from Tennessee to Pennsylvania shipped their whiskey in oak barrels down the Mississippi River to New Orleans. During this journey, the clear unaged whiskey took on the flavors and color of the wood. When this “oak aged” whiskey was poured in saloons up and down Bourbon Street, it was of amber color with a distinctive woody taste. Thus, the process of aging American whiskey in oak barrels was born.

River Basin Distillery follows this time-honored American heritage. Located where the Mississippi River bends to form the Crescent City, we source our whiskeys from “up the river” just as it was done 200 years ago.

River Basin Rye is a distinctive blend of 95% rye mash aged in new American white oak barrels to produce a rich whiskey that embodies the fiery spirit of the French Quarter with a Big Easy finish of vanilla, cinnamon, caramel and clove.
Each bottle is hand finished with a wax seal and individually signed by the bottler.
?
47% ABV (94 Proof)
95% Rye Mash, 5% Barley Malt
Aged over 2 Years
Bottled in New Orleans, LA

Update on the barrel...

After a little sanding, I did uncover the word “Beam” and maybe a date 77.

It took me over an hour to sand one slat. I said screw it, went and bought a belt sander. I did four slats in 20 mins. The worst part is sanding the inside. The burnt wood makes a mess. I’m just sanding away the coal and adding polyurethane.

It’s coming out nicely. I maybe done by this weekend now I have a belt sander.

The barrel's looking good. Are you going to convert it into a bar yourself?

Yes. After all said and done, it’s gonna cost me about $200, including the $60 I spent on the barrel. I actually passed on a Woodford Reserve Barrel about a month ago, that was already converted into a bar. I can say I did it myself, making it more valuable in my eyes.

Here is the one I passed on for $200
