ColumbusBourbon 500th Post Spectacular!

Welcome to my 500th article! This is absolutely bananas and I never would have guessed I'd be nearly 4 years in with over 550k pageviews! First, let me thank everyone for reading and checking in. It's always amazing to get emails, comments, and other interactions with people who have found the site. 

To mark this occasion, I thought it would be fun to do a quick Q&A. This is a combination of questions that come in (if the name is attached to the question) and some of the questions I get from people.  

My first Clippers game this year!

Blade and Bow Review

Welcome to the Columbus Bourbon review for Blade and Bow Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. This review was requested by one of my wonderful readers (Joe G.) who scored a bottle at Jungle Jim's in Cincinnati.

Unique to Blade and Bow is the key around the bottle. If you collect all 5 keys, you can send in a picture of them and they put your name on a cup in a room with all the other cups at the old Stitzel Weller distillery. 

Blade and Bow is produced by Stitzel-Weller, which also owns the I.W. Harper and Orphan Barrel brands.

We'll get started with the basics.
