The guys from the “Barthenon” and the blog “It’s Just the Booze Dancing” return to WhiskyCast Virtual Tastings this month (actually, we went to the Barthenon), and they’re tasting Bourbons. Our panel of Angelo Veneziano, Chris Eattock, John Maxwell, Mike Farley, and Ray Kassekert tasted the Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel, Basil Hayden’s, the John E. Fitzgerald Larceny Bourbon, and Jefferson’s Reserve Bourbons. Our panel had some strong opinions, as well as a lot of fun.
This month, we also welcome Forty Creek Canadian Whisky as the new sponsor of WhiskyCast Virtual Tastings. Thanks to John Hall, Beth Warner, and everyone at Forty Creek for their support!

Correction: During this episode’s discussion of Basil Hayden’s, the comment was made that Basil Hayden’s uses the same mash bill as Jim Beam and Knob Creek. According to Beam, the Basil Hayden’s mash bill contains twice as much rye as traditional bourbons.
