143 – MGP vs Tennessee Bourbon, WL Weller CYPB, and Shipping on Bourbon Community Roundtable #19

Do you snuff at $100 MGP bourbon and will sourced Dickel be the next wave of NDPs? What does House Bill 400 really mean when it comes to shipping booze from Kentucky? And finally Buffalo Trace announced their new line of CYPB but who really wanted 95 proof Weller? We touch on all these topics and more on this Bourbon Community Roundtable episode.

Show Notes:

  • What’s everyone drinking tonight?
  • Are we getting tired of seeing $100 MGP bourbons?
  • Bourbonr and BreakingBourbon have Doc52, let’s hear it
  • Any good April fools out there?
  • Let’s talk shipping. HB400 passed
  • The new W. L. Weller Bourbon, CYPB edition (short for Craft Your Perfect Bourbon), is, according to those behind it, made from a wheat recipe, aged eight years on the top floors of the warehouses, and bottled at 95 proof. It is the bourbon which best fit into what over 100,200 bourbon drinkers voted most for over two years –  a wheated bourbon recipe aged for eight years that’s been matured on the top floor of the bourbon warehouse and bottled at somewhere between 90-99 proof. Although very limited, one batch of this new bourbon will be released each year, beginning this summer. The recommended price is around $40 for a 750ml bottle. First off, who said we wanted 95 proof weller?
