To kick of Bourbon Heritage Month on tastings I try a Slate Blended Bourbon. This one is a budget bourbon again. And after my last 2 budget bourbon experiments, I attempt this one with some level of trepidation. I tried both the Heaven Hill Old Style and the Evan Williams Kentucky Bourbon and needless to say, they will be part of our collection for a long time to come. For no other reason that it is going to be difficult to finish the bottles. I found the Slate Blended Bourbon in one of the smaller bottle stores that I visit. The amount of information on this brand, distillery, age and origin is so limited that I needed to scroll to the 4th page on Google before finding anything worth while… Let’s just say, I have a few antacid ready next to my tasting glass, just for in case.

We got this bottle of Gentleman Jack as a gift from someone about a year ago, and it is certainly time that I open and try it. I have tasted the Jack Daniel’s Old No 7 before and gave it a Very Good rating. Certainly not our favourite dram, but it will do in a pinch (perhaps a very tight pinch, but it will do). Will this premium version of Tennessee whiskey impress us more?
