Blue Collar Bourbon

Episode 06: Hot blooded

Early Times Bottled In Bond

Early Times Bottled-in-Bond delivers a nice experience. In the times of $100+ limited edition bourbons, it can be quite difficult to get excited about a four-year-old bonded bourbon priced at around $23. However, Brown Forman played this one right by releasing a reasonably priced Early Times bourbon. As it stands, this bourbon compares favorably in price and flavor to my other favorite of the Brown-Forman line, Old Forester Signature, while offering a slightly different experience – Early Times bonded is sweeter with more oak influence to it than Old Forester Signature.

So, the next time you’re at the store and reaching for the old standby, Old Forester Signature, change it up a bit and grab the Early Times Bottled-in-Bond for a different experience.

George Dickel Tabasco Brand Barrel Finish stands out by bringing a deliciously spicy kick, made by hand and finished in barrels used to age tabasco peppers for three years.

Best enjoyed as a shot with celery salt on the rim, pickle juice, or an ice chaser. Damn straight, it’s Hot Dickel!
