Mashbills, Geeky Information and Resources

This is the last installment in a series on Bourbon by Zach Pearson. Read them all: Bourbon, Bourbon After the Act, Bourbon: What it is ... and isn't, Making Bourbon, Who Makes My Bourbon, Producer Capsules., Finding the Good Stuff, Tasting the Good Stuff, Neat, Mashbills, Geeky Information and Resources.

As a note, I can’t claim credit for any of this. This section is the work of a couple of users on the StraightBourbon.com website, mainly Josh, Oscar and a guy named Taanstafl2 – and see the note just below. But it’s too important to leave out even if it’s a bit more advanced.

For mashbills, I referred to The Book of Bourbon and Other Fine American Whiskeys by Regan & Regan, 2009, unless otherwise noted. Barton, WT, and Dickel are noted as approximate.

I use the format: Distillery Brand Name (%corn/%rye or wheat/%malted barley). This is a breakdown of "macro" distillers. Wondering what the different char levels look like? This is a good illustration.

    Interesting combination and definitely has some interesting layers. I did this with naked grouse and suspect it would be better served by a less sherry bomb scotch. Still definitely worth making again.

    This is a perennial favorite. I’m able to get Atxa, a Spanish dry vermouth locally. Tried to edit the recipe but this brand wasn’t recognized and wouldn’t save. Agree with other commentators the Hendricks is my favorite gin for this cocktail!

  • Re Benediction, 3 days ago drinkingandthinking commented:

    Nice herbal combo that worked well with Spanish brandy

  • Re The Inocencio, 3 days ago shadowkirby commented:

    A little sweet - would possibly omit the simple. Very vegetal, good drink for spring.

  • Re The St-Rita, 5 days 22 hours ago drinkingandthinking commented:

    uninspired elderflower margarita with poor proportions
