Tasting Notes: Penelope Founder’s Reserve American Light Whiskey

Barrell, Old Carter, and Jacob's Pardon have all been making use of long aged American Light Whiskey, which is a corn mashbill whiskey that is aged in used bourbon barrels.

Tasting Notes: Barrell Bourbon Batch 31 and a Review of the Glencairn Copita Whiskey Glass

You know how Amazon will suggest things? Well, it suggested earlier this week that I buy some Glencairn Copitas, so I bought two. They come with or without the cool tops that keep the whiskey from evaporating.
