Whiskey Week Event (All LVille's)Whiskey week takes place Tuesday through Friday and is for the ultimate whiskey lover. We will be featuring a new event every day at all Lizardville locations. For December 1, we will begin offering:
Four Roses Limited Edition Small Batch 2015 – Considered by many to be the last great masterpiece from arguably the greatest US master distiller of our time, Jim Rutledge, this year’s Four Rose’s Limited Edition Small Batch will be a special one. Jim Rutledge has changed the face of Bourbon over the 49 years he’s spent in the industry. Mr. Rutledge released this statement about this year’s small batch: “This combination of mature Bourbons is something truly special. It’s great when you can go out on a high note, and this Bourbon delivers that.” Thank you, Mr. Rutledge, for everything!
Johnnie Walker Select Rye – The first in Johnnie Walker’s new “Select Casks” limited-edition lineup, Select Rye is aged in ex-American whiskey barrels for 10 years before it is finished in ex-American Rye whiskey barrels. This is an experimental new release from Johnnie Walker, with the richness of the rye finish bringing an entirely new experience to Scotch drinkers.
Old Forester 1870 – George Garvin Brown, the “founder of consistency” in the Bourbon world, first began “batching” Bourbons from three different distilleries in 1870.Blending bottles to taste, or “batching,” was not a common practice back then, so inconsistencies for a brand between one bottle and the next were rampant. Nowadays, consistency is king, and “batching” is a common practice for all Bourbon distilleries. In recognition of Brown’s achievements, Old Forester 1870 is comprised of Bourbons aged in three different warehouses, with three different dates of production.
Old Forester 1897 – This Bourbon is designed to recognize the “US Bottled In Bond Act of 1897,” an Act created by the government to protect Bourbon’s authenticity. To be designated “Bottled in Bond” under the Act, a bottle of Bourbon must consist of product distilled in one season, from one distillery, and from one distiller. Also, the Bourbon must have been aged for at least four years under the watchful eye of the government in a federally bonded warehouse and be bottled at 100 proof (50% alcohol by volume).
Old Forester Birthday Bourbon – As a commemoration of the birthday of Old Forester founder, George Garvin Brown, this is Old Forester’s most coveted Bourbon release every year. This year’s release is comprised of 12 year old Bourbons aged in one particular location in one warehouse, resulting in a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience for Bourbon connoisseurs.
Whiskey Week Event (All LVille's)Whiskey week takes place Tuesday through Friday and is for the ultimate whiskey lover. We will be featuring a new event every day at all Lizardville locations. For December 2, we will begin offering:
Due to Limited Availability on these products, Lizardville will only be offering these whiskies in the form of Flights.George T. Stagg, Eagle Rare 17yr, and William Laure Weller will be available together in our Antique Bourbon Flight.Sazerac 18yr Rye and Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Rye will only be available in our Antique Rye Flight.
George T. Stagg – The boldest (and likely the rarest) of the Antique Collection Bourbons from Buffalo Trace Distillery, George T. Stagg clocks in at over 69 Proof and over 15 years of age.This Bourbon was named for one of the early innovators in the industry… George T. Stagg, along with E.H. Taylor, were some of the truly great Bourbon names of the 19th century.
Eagle Rare 17yr – Classically considered one of the great Bourbons in the US, Eagle Rare has been the consistently remarkable single-barrel workhorse of the Buffalo Trace lineup for years.This is Eagle Rare’s big brother, however, with even deeper, richer, oak notes.Single-barrel Bourbon doesn’t get much better than this.
William Larue Weller – Named for the man credited with substituting wheat for rye as the second player in the Bourbon mashbill (Bourbon must be made with at least 51% corn in the mashbill), William Laure Weller is comprised of a much-copied recipe for greatness.
Sazerac 18yr Rye – Named for the famous New Orleans saloon that was home to the “first American cocktail,” Sazerac 18yr is a high-class American Rye Whiskey.Spicier than its Bourbon cousins, Sazerac 18yr brings an intensity to the American whiskey tradition that is unparalleled.
Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Rye – Named for the first bartender to allegedly create the classic American cocktail in the Sazerac House of New Orleans, this powerful American whiskey has become an icon of the style.Aside for the Sazerac 18yr from same distillery, Buffalo Trace, this is a major highlight of the style and a must-try for Rye connoisseurs.
