Legent Kentucky Bourbon

Stay tuned tomorrow!
Legent Kentucky Bourbon 
-- watch for online reservations Thursday morning!
A Bourbon Unlike Any Other.
Legent is a Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey partially finished in wine and sherry casks. But it's more than that. It pushes the boundaries for how bourbons can be created while remaining true to the core of bourbon's principles. It's a collaboration between two whiskey legends – Fred Noe & Shinji Fukuyo (Suntory chief blender ) 
– and two unique styles of whiskey making. 

Our Story Begins With Kentucky Straight Bourbon.
Legent starts with a historic bourbon recipe from Fred Noe's family. Every drop is crafted with high-quality grains and calcium-rich, iron-free, limestone water and is aged for at least four years in newly charred white oak barrels.

Legent is aged again in sherry and red-wine casks where it picks up several unique flavors. Then Shinji meticulously blends these secondary-finished bourbons with more Kentucky straight bourbon. Blending allows Shinji to balance, add and unlock layers of complex flavors.
This is how Shinji took a historic recipe from Fred's family from barrel to bottle.
From Japan to Scotland to Kentucky, Chief Blender Shinji Fukuyo has traveled the world over learning, studying and perfecting the art of blending whiskey and distilling spirits. For him, Legent presented numerous unique challenges. Bourbon isn't a spirit that's blended routinely. He also wanted to honor Fred's family heritage and produce a unique bourbon of the highest quality. After years of tasting, testing and refining the recipe with Fred, Legent has become another step in Shinji's pursuit of mastery.

New York International Spirits Competition - 2020

High-toned and zesty, this bourbon initially resembles a glass of fine Madeira. But a little time, a splash of water, or an ice cube will unleash its sweet pastry notes, woodsy spice, and sweet, rich palate.

Appearance: Chestnut.
Nose: Opens very high-toned and estery, on pineapple, plum, apple jelly, and honeydew melon. Some actively fermenting mash notes of corn pudding and sunflower seeds sit just below. Much of that blows off after a few minutes, revealing sweet tones of chocolate covered espresso beans, maple syrup, and stroopwafel. As it evolves it gathers woodsy mulling spices, hazelnut, leather, and mesquite smoke.
Palate: Strawberry rhubarb pie, juicy fig and sour orange make for a bright and zesty arrival. Such acidic fruits mirror the nose and couple with limestone minerality and sandy tannin to yield a vinous mouthfeel. It grows richer as you savor a mouthful, developing cappuccino, macadamia nut and leather. More herbaceous than the nose, here allspice is joined by cassia and licorice root.
Finish: A quick, mineral burst of ink, graphite, and charcoal slowly fades out on Tia Maria.

With a few drops of spring water
The nose grows more focused, resembling a great hot toddy -- honey, orange zest and clove. Ripe banana emerges, joined by a little resinous rosemary and jasmine. The palate gets much thicker as gooey caramel takes center stage. It gets more floral as well, tasting of orris root and potpourri. The finish becomes rather delicate, with coffee ice cream being joined by dried fig and chamomile.

Barrell Bourbon Batches

Barrell Cask Strength Bourbon Batch 024...$74.99
  • A blend of straight Bourbon Whiskeys
  • Distilled and aged in Tennessee, Kentucky and Indiana
  • Selection of 9, 10, 13, and 15-year-old barrels
  • Aged in American white oak barrels

Barrell Bourbon Batch 024 is a marriage of high rye Bourbons ranging in age from 9 to 15 years old. The 9, 10, and 13-year-old barrels were chosen for their peppery assertiveness, making this "spice box" marriage wonderfully robust yet a little rough around the edges. We refined the blend by adding in citrus forward, lower proof, 15-year-old barrels bit by bit, ensuring that the rye forward base would continue to shine, while delivering a lush mouthfeel.

Barrell Cask Strength Bourbon Batch 022...$74.99
Barrell Bourbon Batch 022 is a marriage of two separate and iconic styles of Bourbon: Classily dry and woody Kentucky Bourbon, and floral, herbaceous, and sweet Indiana Bourbon. The final blend was constructed from four separate lots, each with its own nuanced family of flavors. Much like Batches 007, 011, and 013, Batch 022 incorporates the freshness of some carefully chosen, younger barrels to bring a more extensive set of flavors and aromas to the table.

  • Selection of 5-year-old barrels
  • Aged in American white oak barrels

Mother's Brewing - Missouri

Mother's Brewing Cobra Scare of '53....$8.99 / 6pk cans
Ozarks Sour Wheat Ale

A placid August afternoon in the Queen City of the Ozarks: sunlight through stately walnut trees casts dappled shadows on an empty park. Sidewalks are silent in the normally bustling downtown. Front porches, reliable sources of neighborly smiles or a cool glass of lemonade, are bereft of both. Underneath the silence some quiet menace thrums. What ominous force has driven the residents of Springfield behind locked doors?
Somewhere in the city, just out of plain sight, slithering in the periphery, an unknown number of Indian cobras are laterally undulating their way into the collective nightmare now remembered as the Cobra Scare of 1953.
The residents of Springfield were not cowed for long. Armed with guns, garden hoes, and the gumption inherent to natives of hill country, they resolved to reclaim their city from the serpentine threat. In mere months, their vigilance had dispatched eleven of the hooded herptiles. And again, the sidewalks, parks, and porches of city rang with the clamor of life in the Ozarks.
The Great Cobra Scare of ‘53 is an Ozarks style wheat ale with a bite. Refreshing and invigorating, it is as well suited to cobra hunting as it is to lazy afternoons in a hammock. A beer to enjoy when swapping yarns, telling tall tales, and reveling in the stories of your home town. A beer named in celebration of the sometimes surreal lore of the people whose spirit and resilience were displayed during the Cobra Scare. With the same intrepid spirit of our forbears some sixty years ago, rise to the occasion: slay one pint. Then slay another five. And let our cities evermore ring with the clamor of life in our Ozarks.

Grab a glass. You can suckle if you want, but we bet you're gonna chug.

Sunday's Are Better Than Others Whisky

Sunday's Are Better Than Others Whisky....$53.99
Made in Japan
An authentically Japanese, world blend whisky that expands the universe of whisky lovers & Japanophiles.
Sunday’s Whisky is crafted in small batches and made from world grain spirits that is distilled twice and barrel aged 3-9 years at cask strength. The whisky is blended before adding the pristine, alkaline water from the nearby springs of Koriyama. The result is a more round, viscous mouth feel with soft, slightly sweet undertones.

Japan elevates everything to an art form. The same can be said for the Japanese highball and Sunday’s Whisky was made with a highball in mind as it doesn’t dilute on the rocks or in cocktails. A subtle, underlying sweetness and citrus aroma of Sunday’s combined with the salty edge of a hard, mineral soda water creates a more balanced highball than other whisky and soda combinations.

TASTING NOTES:  On the nose aromas of yuzu, sugar snap pea and apple cider donut. The palate shows notes of cocoa, fresh mint, and waffle with a rounded mouthfeel, in part from the soft water source. The finish showcases more sweet baking spice notes with pink peppercorn and barley.

Belvedere Vodka Heritage 176

Belvedere Vodka Heritage 176...$29.99
Compare to $31.99 at Total Wine and More
A Taste of Vodka's Past - A New Spirit From Belvedere's Master Rye Distillers.
With Belvedere Heritage 176 (2020 Ultimate Spirits Challenge - Finalist - 94 Points), Belvedere’s Master Rye Distillers apply fire to the rye before distillation, to further demonstrate its potential for nuanced taste. Belvedere Heritage 176 is quite simply a taste of vodka’s past. Up until the 19th century, Polish vodka-makers relied on the old technique of ‘malting’, using fire-kilned drying —a tradition which also naturally revealed rich and distinctive flavors. Over time, as the vodka category expanded, and technology evolved, these old traditions sadly faded out, and vodka became more associated with neutrality.

Belvedere challenges neutrality and believes that rye, the heart of our brand, delivers both distinctive taste and character. To demonstrate this further, Belvedere has revived this traditional malting technique which unlocks rich depth, flavor and complexity that would otherwise remain hidden in the rye. Rich, full-bodied and complex, with hints of honey, walnut and allspice, Heritage 176 is best savored over ice with a lemon twist. Discover the taste of vodka’s past.
