“Too much of anything is bad but too much good whiskey is barely enough.”– Mark Twain, Author

It’s fitting that one of the greatest storytellers in American History had this to say about whiskey many years ago.

And as an author who wrote about life on the Mississippi River we have to believe that Mr. Twain was writing these words specifically about American’s only native spirit, Bourbon, a spirit that he surely enjoyed as it passed down that mighty river regularly heading for New Orleans and the rest of the world.

Bourbon is all about two things: (1) the people (those who make it and those who drink it), and (2) good stories. There is nothing better than sitting around with friends, both old and new, sharing a delicious glass of Bourbon and telling great stories.

At The Bourbon Life our mission is simple – to share our passion for all things Bourbon with you.

May your glasses always be full and may you keep on living The Bourbon Life.

I had the pleasure last week of meeting Fortune’s Fool Founder, Juliet Schmalz, to learn more about her, her vision, and the brand. 

She was also kind enough to share a pour of their 1st release, The Prelude, with me as well as a pour of this bottle, the recently released The Overture. 

This 3 year old rye drinks much older than its age statement and actually much lower than its 109.4 Proof point. 

It’s a delicious mix of spice with vanilla and citrus and was such an easy drinker. 

I’m really looking forward to picking up a bottle soon and I can’t wait to see what they release next!!

*** NEW EPISODE ALERT ***

In this Episode of The Bourbon Life Podcast presented by Liquor Barn, Matt and Mark are on location at Augusta Distillery in Augusta, Kentucky for the release of their 17-Year Old Buckners Bourbon and they also spend some time hanging out with 4x guest, and Augusta Distillery’s brand new Master Distiller and Director of Distillery Operations, Alex Castle, and Co-Founder and President, Ryan Edwards. 

Matt and Mark talk with Alex and Ryan about Alex’s decision to leave Old Dominick in Memphis, where she also served as Master Distiller, to take the reins at Augusta Distillery and Ryan’s perspective on making such a tremendous hire for Augusta, the transition that Augusta Distillery will have to make over the next few years in moving from sourced Bourbon to using their own distillate (a process that Alex previously went through at Old Dominick), and what the future looks like for the brand and for Augusta Distillery.  

They also taste and review Augusta Distillery’s full Buckner’s lineup including Buckner’s 10-Year Old Bourbon, Buckner’s 13-Year Old Bourbon, Buckner’s 15-Year Old Bourbon, and their brand new Buckner’s 17-Year Old Bourbon. 

Alex is definitely one of our favorite guests and were so excited for her, and Augusta Distillery, as they begin this new journey together.
