We will be doing a small tasting on August 5th @ 6:00pm at a private residence in Westchester (just North of LAX). We'll be tasting 6 unique bourbons (+1 more) to explore the distinctive characteristics imparted by the distillation of different grains. All the bourbons are from the same distillery (Jim Beam) and have been aged at least 11 years.

The Line-Up:

1. High Rye 

2. Whole Rolled Oat 

3. Soft Red Wheat 

4. Brown Rice

5. Triticale

6. Six Row Barley

7. Jim Bean Single Barrel (barrel #4-176)


We were able to source the complete Jim Beam® Harvest Bourbon Collection™ at a significant discount, hence the low cost for bourbon and pizza. The focus is to decide if mashbills are really as important as many distilleries claim, or if it's just something used for marketing. Will the flavor grain really shine? Will the oak overpower and render them mute? You'll have to taste to find out.
