Backbone Bourbon is going back to its roots.
Backbone Prime is a throwback to the first batches of Backbone Uncut. With bold, deep flavors, Prime is a blend of 7*year and 3-year batches along with some young rye, and 8-year corn whiskey.
Like Backbone Uncut, Prime is not chill filtered, is not watered down, has no additives and comes in at 104 proof.
Backbone Bourbon was crafted for those who understand that hard work, guts, and determination deserve a reward. Backbone Prime is smooth to drink but is also the perfect craft cocktail bourbon. It is the best choice to elevate any cocktail that requires a bold flavor without overpowering other ingredients.
Backbone Bourbon is distilled in Lawrenceburg, Indiana and then bottled in small batched in Bardstown, Kentucky.
Prime just started shipping in early June so it may be hard to find around town. However, you can get our bottle of Backbone Prime at your local Payless Liquors. Find your local store, or reserve your bottle on our site by clicking here.

The fermentation process brought out by Small Town includes several natural ingredients including: honey, vanilla, cinnamon, wintergreen and sarsaparilla bark. Although Not Your Father’s is a highlight acclaimed beer, some critics don’t even consider it a beer because it lacks on critical ingredient essential to beer, hops. But this hasn’t stopped it from being wildly popular among enthusiasts.
The 12-ounce, 5.9% ABV bottles pour dark cola brown with a slight caramel color. In comparison to actual root beer, it’s a little stickier and not nearly as fizzy. But as we mentioned before, all the aromas are reminiscent of soda with sweet honeyed vanilla and sassafras spice. There is a subtle boozy note to it, sort of like a spiked root beer. Flavors of black licorice, cream soda and small bitter rootlike qualities.
Not Your Father’s Root Beer is for everyone. It appeals to beer aficionados, as well those who don’t typically enjoy beer. Not only is it great to share with your dad this weekend, but also very enjoyable at a summer BBQ, out camping and any other warm-weather activities.

Who is Colonel Taylor?
Bourbon founding father, Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr. left a lasting legacy on the ever-growing industry. Even today the techniques he perfected in the Civil War era are still used today. Enter E.H. Taylor Small Batch Bourbon Bottled in Bond. Made by hand, each bottle contains bourbon aged in century old warehouses by Colonel Taylor.
With the purchase of his first distillery, O.F.C. Distillery, Colonel Taylor right away developed new equipment and sour mash techniques to perfect the process of producing bourbon. Not to mention, he was also a key player in the passing of the Bottled-in-Bond Act of 1897 which created a standard of quality for bourbon whiskey. While also holding the position of May of Frankfort, Kentucky for 16 years, Taylor had a major part in helping grow and develop the bourbon industry in the state.
Bottled in Bond
The E.H. Small Batch Bourbon was aged for 7 years in the famous Colonel Taylor warehouses, which were built in 1881. It’s one of the most affordable of the Buffalo Trace collection and presents a smooth and delicate character. A great spirit for sipping bottled at 100 proof.
The aroma is filled with your usual vanilla and caramel scents, but with an unexpected green apple and woody smell. The nose also presents unusual notes of honey and hot cinnamon. On the palate the corn base is apparent with notes of tangy apple cider, toffee and butter. Hints of butterscotch and caramel corn are also tasted on the first sip. The finish has just enough bite with a very pleasing medium-to-long finish with caramel lingering throughout.
Some of the various accolades E.H. Taylor Small Batch has received include:
- 97 Points at the Ultimate Spirits Challenge (2 points higher than Pappy Van Winkle 23 Year Old Bourbon)

It’s a cognac of great distinction. This year Hennessy is celebrating the big 2-5-0. To commemorate the anniversary they have released the Hennessy 250 Collector Blend, which pays full tribute to the centuries of excellence, expansion and passion.
A cognac is defined by its blend and aging process. The Hennessy Master Blender, Yann Fillioux prides himself in offering the best product for the 250 edition. With 50 years of experience, Fillioux has created a blend made from double distilled white wine from locally grown ugni blanc grapes. The spirit was aged in Limousin oak barrels stored at ground level near the banks of the Charente River. These barrels add a touch of warm vanilla to the overall taste of the cognac. The eaux-de-vie blend has been aged 15-35 years. It’s a harmonious balance of power, vivacity and elegance.
At first glance, Hennessy Collector’s Blend makes a statement with its smooth, amber colored brandy. On the nose one can expect rich and expressive aromatic tones of spice and bitter orange. Fresh notes of nutmeg, black licorice and sweet peppermint all combined for an invigorating flavor. Powerful on the palate with the familiar elegant Hennessy flavors. A persistent finish with the spicy density and hints of saffron.
Unlike any other collectible liquor, the Hennessy 250 bottle is made from hand-cut crystals that increase its value. Only 250 barrels of the cognac have been produced, which comes out to be about a few thousand bottles. To enjoy this cognac at its best, sip neat at room temperature.
Own a piece of history with Hennessy 250 Collector’s Blend. We encourage you to reserve here on our website. Don’t miss out on your chance to own this iconic blend.
