Today was a HUGE day for our buddies Sam and Ben with @bluegrassdistillers.

Not only did they celebrate the groundbreaking of their new distillery in Midway, Kentucky (more on that later) but they also just released this 10-year old Bourbon, Elkwood Reserve, to celebrate their 10 years of distilling.

Named after the farm in Woodford County where their new distillery is located, Elkwood Farm, this expression comes in at 9 years and 108 Proof.

Congratulations, Sam and Ben, on this historic day for Bluegrass Distillers.

Cheers!

*** NEW EPISODE ALERT ***

In this Episode of The Bourbon Life Podcast, Matt and Mark spend some time hanging out with Mark McLaughlin, Co-Founder, of @oldlinespirits in Baltimore, MD.

The guys talk with Mark about his former career as a Navy Pilot and Investment Banker and how that led him, and his long-time friend and Navy buddy, Arch Watkins, into the whiskey business, the serendipitous events that guided him away from his desire to produce Bourbon and Rye and led him to the American Single Malt Whiskey category, and what the future looks like for the American Single Malt category as a whole as well as for Old Line Spirits.

They also taste and review Old Line Spirit’s flagship product, their 100% Malted Barley, 86 Proof American Single Malt Whiskey.

American Single Malt is an exploding category and Mark and Arch were at the forefront of the movement and are creating some amazing single malts.

If you're not familiar with them then you definitely need to check out this Episode.

This Episode of The Bourbon Life Podcast is sponsored by @liquor_barn_ky, @thestavekentucky Restaurant, and @threechordbourbon.

When you crack open a brand new bottle of Pappy 15 Year to share a pour with @leecrusetv for the @lee_and_hayley Show, only to have him do this….

Exciting day today!

Shooting this segment last week for The @lee_and_hayley Show at @obckitchen with @leecrusetv was SO much fun.

I can’t wait for you guys to see the final product today at 4:00pm.

If you’re in, or around, the Lexington area you can watch it on @abc36_news.

If you’re outside of the market you can catch it on WTVQ.com.

Cheers!

I want to give a HUGE shoutout to Kevin and Justin with @homebar.io for the care package they sent us this past week.

I mentioned on a recent podcast how I wish I could get some @tcwhiskey and they came through in spades for me.

They sent us samples of the 12, 13, and 14- year old TC Whiskey Holiday Reserve.

And, as if that wasn’t enough, they also threw in a sample of a 16-year old @threechordbourbon 12 Bar Reserve Single Barrel and a sample of a 12-Year old Traverse City Whiskey FU Corona.

Oh yeah! And they sent Homebar.io hats for each member of the Bourbon Life Crew.

Matt was a recent guest on their show while he was home in Michigan over Christmas break. If you’ve not had a chance to check that out you definitely need to.

This is what the Bourbon community is all about. Thank you guys SO much!!

Be sure to give Homebar.io a follow!!

“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.

Well, Mrs. Bourbon Life and I had an absolutely amazing time last night at Carson's Food & Drink.

We are so thankful to the owner, Mark Fichtner, for inviting us to join him and his girlfriend, Jayme Jackson, for drinks and then for so graciously paying for our dinner (even though he and Jayme had to leave for another event).

And as Mark and I were talking about barrel picks, and my 1st experience of doing a pick at James B. Beam Distilling Co. for a Knob Creek Bourbon, he gifted me this Single Barrel Pick of Carson’s Knob Creek Rye.

Can you believe that? Wow!! What a surprise!!

I’m a HUGE Knob Creek fan (Bourbon and Rye) and a fan of Carson’s single barrel picks in general, so I can’t wait to crack this one open.

Thank you, Mark and Jayme, for a wonderful evening, delicious food, great pours, and even better conversation.
