The Bee's Knees Barrel #1

Beast Masters Club Exclusive
Boone County Distilling 12 Year Straight Bourbon
Barrel #B5042  111.6 Proof


This incredible bourbon comes from Boone County Distilling. It's 12 Year MGP (Indiana) Straight Bourbon, unfiltered, at cask strength, right out of the barrel just how we like it!

What we look for in a bourbon is richness, sweetness, spice, and wood. And this barrel had all of those in spades! The first note is rich molasses, coating the nose in candy and cream. Then the baking spices come out, nutmeg and cinnamon, brown sugar and vanilla. Then on the palate we get the beautiful white oak, just perfectly in its prime from 12 years in the barrel, not overly tannic but boldly char-forward and doing a lovely job mellowing out the palate. For 111 proof this stuff is dangerously drinkable. The finish goes on forever and the sweets, spices, and wood all marry together at the end for a result that is exactly what an outstanding bourbon should be.



  #31 A Beastly Birthday


For SmokyBeast's birthday, we drink a 1961 Old Grand-Dad, and The Whiskey Warrior deep-throats a Glencairn glass. Enjoy!


The grisly grey-haired beast is getting even older. For his birthday Beast Master Ben, Josh "Captain Coop" Feldman, and Jake "Whiskey Warrior" Cahill assemble to sample our favorite of the Beast Masters Club private barrels. The warrior brings a surprise - a National Distillers Old Grand-Dad Bottled-in-Bond bourbon distilled in 1961! The boys talk whiskey, turn-ons, turn-offs, and just to spice things up, Jake dons an atrocious Scottish accent and deep-throats a Glencairn glass. You don't wanna miss this one. Unless you're Jake's, mom, in which case we're sorry.
