SWC Tasting #50: Bottled-in-Bond Whiskeys

bib.jpg

Please join us Monday, Sept. 11th for a tasting of Bottled-in-Bond whiskeys.  Matt Harvey (spirits specialist, Young's Market Company) and Christopher (The Barrel Thief), will discuss why Bottled-in-Bond came about in the late 19th century, what the regulations are to be labeled as Bottled-in-Bond, and what it means for today's consumers.

We'll be tasting four Bottled-in-Bond whiskeys:  two Bourbons and two Ryes.  Each pair will feature an EH Taylor bottling, as Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor Jr. was a primary catalyst of the Bottled-in-Bond Act.

Can you taste the difference in Bottled-in-Bond whiskeys?  Is the designation still relevent?  Will EH Taylor stand up to the competition?  Come on Monday the 11th, and find out!
