Had a chance to try a few try a few new whiskies at Total Wine today and walked away with this Stellum. I had actually never even heard of it before, but apparently it is a more affordable ($54) version of Barrel whiskey. I really loved it on the nose and palate. Believe this is the highest corn content (99%) I've ever had in a whiskey, and that must really be to my liking. The finish carried through all the way home from the store, and at 115 proof, left a nice warm feeling in the gullet. Can't wait to really get into this one!

I was mistaken about the mash bill on the Stellum bourbon. The 99% corn is only from one of three MGP sourced bourbons in this blend, the other two being high rye. Then there are additions from Tennessee and Kentucky blended in as well.

Apparently there are bourbon selections on the market that are made from 100% corn, not to be confused with Corn Whiskey. Might seek out a bottle of the Balcones Texas Blue Corn Bourbon to see what that is all about.

Found these rare offerings at bad ass local gas station. None of the Spec's I went to had the founders editions.  So far the High Ball Drifter is a bit sweet (for me) but overall really, really good beer. 

If you live around the dirty south, check this place out. Their selection is killer.

Keep the Oktoberfests coming!

 

Hit up Altstadt Sunday while in Fredericksburg. Was pretty disappointed overall as all they had on tap, was what you could buy at any store. Place also felt like we were eating at a Bavarian Luby's. Chicken schnitzel was pretty good though.
