How we doing everybody. It’s me. The ever so famous, highly outrageous and always courageous Anonymous Alcoholic back here once again on Bourbon and Broadleaf to inform you, the viewer, my choices for awesome drinks. Now I know I haven’t been around for a while but as we all know I care very little what you think about me and my opinions so why would I go into a long in depth story of where I’ve been. What I will tell you though is the latest whiskey that I have tasted and that is Bird Dog Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey.
Now at first glance I didn’t know how I was going to write this article. My first experience with Bird Dog Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey was amazing, but I got so wasted off it I totally forgot I had it for a couple of months. Then I saw the label one day in the store and it all came flooding back. But something happened the second experience was completely different then the first. Did my taste buds deceive me last time? What was different? Well let’s start with the most recent tasting of the Bird Dog Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey.
Right after my first sip, I felt like I should be on a porch looking at my farm. Shotgun in one hand and pipe in the other thinking it’s good to own land. There was no doubt I was drinking booze. Like a swift kick in the ass my whole body shook and woke up. It is some straight good old fashioned Kentucky bourbon. Think about those hot summer days where when the whiskey spills it sizzles on the ground. That’s what Bird Dog Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey reminds me of. No oak taste just straight up alcohol. I was about to write it off as a mixer or straight drink and say it’s nothing more then a stiff shot.
But then it hit me. Maybe I was looking at this all wrong. Yes, Kentucky was one view point but think back to prohibition when the booze was rare and hard to get. If you got a whiskey from the USA in a speak easy I imagine it would taste like this. Just like Bird Dog Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey. Taste wasn’t important in that time. The important thing was what could we drink to get drunk and make our problems go away. The rich drank the same as the poor. All with the same goal in mind. Pairs great with a BLTC Deliverance cigar or Crowned Heads Jericho Hill cigar.
So in conclusion, Bird Dog Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey, the poorly dignified whisky our ancestors would drink. I would suggest a good PennyPacker Bourbon or if your pockets are feeling deep some Angel’s Envy.
I know what your thinking…….but why did it taste so good the first time……well after doing some research and jogging my memory I’ll tell you why. Bird dog has many different flavored whiskeys. And that first time I drank it I had there hot cinnamon flavor. Stay tuned to my next review to learn more.
