Heaven Hill Distillery Unveils First Bottled Bourbon From The Evan Williams Bourbon Experience Called Square 6

That headline is a mess so let me try to break it down a bit. Heaven Hill distillery has announced their first bourbon from their craft bourbon experience called the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience and this new brand is called Square 6. A better headline for the press release would have been 'Heaven Hill Unveils New Craft Brand called Square 6', alas.

Michter's Announces Newest Release of 10 Year Bourbon

Michter's has announced the 2021 release of their 10 Year Bourbon. This version has been stored in Michter's heat-cycled warehouses. Michter's Master of Maturation Andrea Wilson says that of this process: 

When we heat cycle, it increases the interaction between the whiskey and the wood allowing us to extract more character from the barrel resulting in a truly rich and exceptional whiskey that is not overly oaked

Announcement: Current Email Subscription Service being Discontinued in July

In some sad news, Google notified me that their FollowByEmail widget will be discontinued in July. In the meantime, I'll be trying to find a new email option for those interested. Obviously, it needs to be one where there is privacy, security, and no 3rd party selling or anything like that. If you know of any like that, drop a note in the comment box below. 


If you current get updates from the site via email, Google is removing that functionality in July. In the meantime, I'll be on the lookout for a new subscribe by email option, but you'll need to sign up again once that is in place.

Blanton's, Eagle Rare, and E.H. Taylor Lottery Breakdown

The State has announced the winners of the latest bourbon lottery. Per usual, my wife and I continued our streak of not winning. I'm always curious about what the odds are for the lotteries so I reached out to OHLQ for the final numbers... 

Happy Friday. Do you have the final numbers for the number of entries for each lottery as well as the number of bottles available?

The response didn't directly answer my question... they responded simply by saying 'Entry: 59,974 with 1704 bottles available... this didn't address the number of entries for each lottery because technically, each lottery could be entered independently. Alas.
