Created by blending Straight Bourbon (new charred oak) and “whiskey distilled from a bourbon mash” (used cooperage), this is a unique whiskey. Yeah, double casks are everywhere these days, but this is a true blending of new and used cooperage distillate which puts it in a realm of its own. But I feel very firm in the Top Five, and I was pleased to see three bottled-in-bond bourbons in the running. Maker’s Mark was also the most sought-after bourbon at a period when the American whiskey industry endured the doldrums of the ‘70s and ‘80s. At the time, many had turned to drink vodka and other related spirits. But the smooth and sweet flavor profile of Maker’s Mark brought them around.

Needless to say I’m a Fan, I’m Cheap, and drinking a Brand that family relatives preferred over the years and consumed over cherished family Holiday memories is just an added bonus to the feel good factor. This was so complex, with a 20-second finish and layered in vanilla that it was easily the winner. It now goes on to compete for Best American Whiskey.Woodford Reserve: Approachable, easy to drink, some distinct notes. Woodford Reserve Bourbon is not quite bottom of the bottom shelf in price, but good value and a generic label you can find most places. So, such extreme carefulness in the production of bourbons warrants higher price tags. But the truth is price cannot be used as a perfect measure of quality. The Service has been prepared by us solely for information purposes to Members and the Service is based on information we consider reliable and we obtain the contents of the Service from a number of different third party sources (including Contributions), but we do not endorse, support, represent, warrant or guarantee the completeness, truthfulness, accuracy, or reliability of the Services and any information therein. Early Times Bottled in Bond succeeds at what it sets out to do - appeal to many at a fantastic price point. The brand brings with it a long and storied history, an added bonus for anyone who thinks beyond the glass. However, while the flavor profile and overall drinking experience is enjoyable, it is really the combination of a great price and approachable flavor profile that make this worthwhile. Given the fact that we’ve seen great value bourbons become overhyped and subsequently overpriced - due to either the producer increasing MSRP or retailers’ perception of high demand - it is important to note that Early Times Bottled in Bond will ultimately lose its magic should that occur. Put simply, Early Times Bottled in Bond is absolutely worth seeking out and having as a regular on your shelf, just not if you have to overpay for it. But technically, Smooth Ambler Contradiction is a blend of bourbons from West Virginia and the liquid obtained from the MGP Distillery in Indiana.

Nose: The nose starts off soft and inviting , with fresh floral notes then leading to candy corn and wood oil. As the nose unfolds, the nose gets darker and richer, with more oak, caramel, red apple, peanut shells, and a slight sawdust quality. Right before the sip comes a wave of buttered popcorn. Overall, the nose impressed me more than I was expecting.Therefore, welcome to this article, where the best bottom shelf whiskey bourbons will be discussed in detail. Why Bottom Shelf Bourbons? If we decide not to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these Terms, such decision shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. The following indicators should be taken as only a guide and not a set of hard and fast rules. Some "premium" whiskeys really are quite terrible, while some mass market products are good enough to pour into a decanter and serve to the Duke of Edinburgh. A+: A masterpiece and one of the ten best whiskeys of its type. Above five stars. A modern ET review is coming tomorrow and like this one, the one tomorrow will be distilled by Brown-Forman. Both bottles pre-date the acquisition of the brand by Sazerac (Buffalo Trace). Especially this one since the acquisition was in 2020.

The “used barrel” part is instantly obvious in the glass, as Early Times has a thin, semi-translucent amber appearance that is just a shadow of what bourbon aged three years-plus in new oak would have. With an appearance like that, the nose came as a surprise: fragrantly corn sweet with a nice current of vanilla with a touch of rye spice. In other words, some of these bottom-shelf bourbons were esteemed favorites at one time. And that was because of the value and satisfaction that people derived from them. Not all high-priced bourbon is great. Many enthusiasts can attest to the fact that they consumed expensive but average bourbons at one time or the other. Nothing in the Terms shall exclude or limit our liability for fraudulent misrepresentation or for death or personal injury resulting from gross negligence or willful misconduct by us.Butterscotch, copper, oak, maple, honey candy, and some acetone and that musty OBE note always found in dusties. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Old Crow is based primarily on the same bourbon mash bill and yeast profile of Jim Beam White Label. However, Old Crow is blended to give the spirit a taste profile that is lenient enough for beginners to try.

One of the most offensive words in our world today is “beginner” or “newbie.” And no one wants to be called a beginner, at least not when it has to do with drinking bourbon. The MGP provides whiskey for several dozens of different brands. Smooth Ambler Contradiction comes at 46 percent alcohol by volume. This bourbon is a perfect demonstration that shows how a young product can be enhanced with an older, more refined whiskey. Whiskybase B.V. (“Whiskybase”, “we” or “us”, company details below) offers a whisky enthusiasts online platform that provides its members access to the most comprehensive, transparent and trusted resource of whisky bottles and allows and stimulates its members to contribute information about whisky bottles to the platform (“Service”). Early Times Bottled in Bond Bourbon may be the most complex of the value BiB’s and the one whose price may most surprise those who taste it. It has some Brown-Forman characteristics, like the banana that I get from many of their whiskeys. The spelling “whisky” is also used, the same as for Old Forester.There was a time when bottom shelf bourbons were classified under the rotgut category. “Rotgut” simply means alcoholic liquor that is potentially toxic and of inferior quality. And of course, that is more than enough to make people cringe when they hear the word “bottom-shelf.” The bottom line is that Early Times isn’t great, but it certainly isn’t the rotgut it is sometimes made out to be. The stuff is actually a decent product, is simple enough that ice doesn’t ruin it, and is a big winner when you consider it’s low, low price point (see below). Summary – In summary, reviewing this Early Times BIB (Bottled-In-Bond) 100 proof distilled and bottled in Louisville, KY. I feel it has good taste on the verge of being great. It has the afterburn that one could look for that doesn’t melt your throat in a 100-proof bourbon.
