7 Bottled-In-Bond Whiskeys You Must Try in 2019

Rabble RouserSo very nice to be included in the Bourbon Review's list of seven bottled-in-bond whiskeys you must try in 2019.  Explaining what bottled-in-bond means, they write:

The law states that bottled-in-bond bourbons must be distilled by the same master distiller, in the same distilling season, at the same distillery, aged at least four years in a federally bonded warehouse, and bottled at 100 proof to bear this seal of quality. The label must also include the distillery (or distilleries) where the spirit was made and then bottled. All these regulations may seem a bit over the top, but for the past 122 years it’s been a transparent way for consumers to know the quality of their bourbon at a glance.

Writing about the Rabble Rouser specifically:

This year’s Rabble Rouser Rye release is the oldest distillate we’ve seen yet from Virginia-based Catoctin Creek Distilling Co. They use a 100 percent rye mash distilled to a lower proof to craft their rye whiskey, citing a richer flavor profile that can be lost in a traditional [distilling] process.
