New Richmond Rye

Well, I'm still awake. I've got everything cleaned up. Poker points and Whiskey's We've Tried updated. So there. The New Richmond Rye was a decent whiskey. Hailing from the state of Wisconsin, it was good. I like it much better with a cube of ice in it. Neat had a bit of a burn to it. While it wasn't blow your socks of good, with ice, I enjoyed sipping it. What did you think?

Hopefully soon, we will be trying the Panther Distillery whiskeys. Depending on when the 20 month whiskey is released.

More on that later.

The Bourbonator glasses are ready to be picked up.  I will be bringing them to the next meeting.  $10 each covers the cost of the glasses, material, and labor.

Eric posted some pictures of the process to G+ if you're interested.

Panther Distillery - Minnesota Whiskey

I updated the poker points just now. Looks like we have a 3 way tie for 1st with those at the top within striking distance of getting there coveted  Bourbonators Series of Poker trophy and all the fame and recognition that goes with it.

On a different topic, while we were on our family vacation, I snuck away from my kin to visit Panther Distillery. This happens to be Minnesota's first actual whiskey distiller. I realize that Phillips is here and they have whiskey flavored ethanol, but this is different. This is honest to goodness bourbon, made here in Minnesota. Yes, I bought a bottle. We can have it at our next meeting if someone wants to host.

By the way, who can host in July? I'm not able to host until the 25th. Will that work for anyone?
