Town Branch Bourbon

Local brew from Lexington, Kentucky, this one is unlikely to be on anyone’s try to find list.  The is made by Alltech’s Lexington Distilling Company.  Alltech started out as a micro brewery and has expanded into distilling with the growth of craft distilling and the Bourbon Trail.  It is a very good quality blend.  It is smooth and mild. Most of the stream that town branch is named after was buried underground 75 years ago and flows under a street in downtown Lexington. There have been discussions of uncovering at least part of it in recent years. While distribution is growing, this one is hard to find outside of Kentucky.  It is moderately priced and well worth the try when you find it.

  1. You just keep expanding my horizons. I'll check the next time I am in WV or OH and make the trip across the respective bridge!

    Thanks!

  2. I concur! I am learning about new whiskies to try. This is better than posting youtube tunes.
