July 2021 in Review

Welcome to the July 2021 recap.

This was a tough and emotional month as we lost our Tobey at 15 years and 7 months. He was far and away the greatest thing that ever happened in my life. He has moved from outside our bodies to inside our hearts. To honor his legacy, I'm raising money for the Citizen's for Humane Action animal shelter in Columbus, Ohio and will be participating in their 31st annual Dog Jog on October 3rd. I will personally be matching the first $1500 I raise. If you are interested, you can donate here



This month I posted 10 articles. The site saw ~20,000 page-views. Up from the 17,216 views in June and up over 20% from the 16,398 views in July of 2020.

Old Fourth Avenue Distillery Bottled-In-Bond Review

Welcome to the review for Old Fourth Avenue Distillery Bottled-In-Bond. This is a product that was recommended by one of my favorite co-workers. I have family in Atlanta and they scored me a bottle as a gift. 

I love the concept of bottled-in-bond. As you may know, for something to be designated bottled-in-bond, the bourbon must meet specific criteria. It must:

  • Be the product of one distillation season (January–June or July–December by one distiller at one distillery. 
  • Been aged in a federally bonded warehouse under U.S. government supervision for at least four years 
  • Bottled at 100 (U.S.) proof (50% alcohol by volume). 
  • Be produced in the United States
For me, it puts bourbons on equal footing where we can better compare them against each other because everything is equal (proof, age, etc.). It reminds me of the old IROC series in racing where all the drivers got identically-prepared stock cars set up by a single team of mechanics in an effort to make the race purely a test of driver ability.

For this bourbon, it's sourced from MGP in Indiana and then aged in a warehouse in East Atlanta. 

Let's get started with the basics.
