Yellowstone Bourbon has a lengthy history dating back to the late 1800s. At one time, the American whiskey brand was the largest selling brand out of Kentucky and was in association with legendary distiller J.B. Dant.
In 1993, Luxco, an alcohol distributor, took possession of Yellowstone. They never distilled the bourbon themselves, opting to simply buy in it in bulk & bottle it under the brand’s name. But now, Luxco has invested in half ownership of the Limestone Branch distillery, whose president and distiller, Steve Beam, happens to be a fourth generation descendent of J.B. Dant. Limestone Distillery has been assigned production of the Yellowstone brand and their first release is here! It is the Yellowstone Limited Edition Bourbon.
Yellowstone’s Limited Edition Bourbon is the perfect mix of a seven-year rye whiskey, a seven-year wheat whiskey, and a 12-year rye whiskey. Some of these whiskies were chill filtered while others weren’t and each brings a unique flavor to the mix. The result has great depth and complexity. To ensure greatness, Steve Beam hand-selected the barrels of 12-year bourbon that he thought would round-out the flavor profile, creating an experience for the drinker.
And he didn’t stop there. In order to maximize the flavor of this bourbon and ensure the three whiskies mixed perfectly together, Steve Beam removed the 12-year rye from its barrels and poured the seven-year bourbon in. This allowed the younger whiskey to pick up more mature flavors, like hints of cinnamon and caramel along with smoky notes.
Due to the historic ties between Limestone Distillery’s president and Yellowstone Bourbon and in honor of the 105th anniversary of his great-grandfather selling his Old Trump Distillery, Steve Beam opted to bottle this bourbon at 105 proof.
Yellowstone’s Limited Edition Bourbon pours with a dark, rich amber color and scents of sweet fig, cinnamon, vanilla, and oaked caramel. The taste is that of toffee, vanilla, and oak which makes way for a spicy finish containing notes of rye and cinnamon.
With just 6,000 bottles produced, this is truly a limited edition find. Make sure you don’t miss your chance! Reserve a bottle using our Contact Us form.
Rye whiskey was America’s first indigenous whiskey style, but over the years, its popularity faded away. Until now. Rye whiskeys are back and are once again a hot topic in the whiskey market.
The use of rye adds a bold, spicy flavoring to the whiskey rather than the pure sweetness of a bourbon. In order to call a whiskey an American rye whiskey, it must be made with a mash containing no less than 51% rye. Since rye is not only expensive but also hard to use, many distillers use the minimum amount required…but not Wild Turkey. Wild Turkey’s Russell’s Reserve Rye is made with a mash that is 65% rye and aged for 6 years, giving it a complexity that is hard to come by.From the looks of it, Russell’s Reserve Rye is like any other whiskey with its coppery amber coloring. However, the taste sets it apart from the rest. Right away, it is clear Wild Turkey places a huge emphasis on their rye as the first sip tastes remarkably similar to rye bread. This flavor is joined by that of vanilla, caramel, and oak with just a hint of spice. The finish is long as the taste of caramel, dill, and of course rye mix and slowly fade.

Wild Turkey’s master distiller Jimmy Russell used to believe that bourbon is best when aged between 8 and 12 years, claiming that any longer and the bourbon loses its vanilla and caramel flavors. Well, it looks like he has changed his mind! Alongside his son, Eddie, he has released a new 17-year bourbon by the name of Master’s Keep.
Master’s Keep is the oldest bourbon that Wild Turkey has ever released to the American market. Originally distilled in 1996, Jimmy and Eddie were forced to place the barrels in a brick warehouse due to a shortage of space in their usual metal-sided warehouses. Over the years, the pair began to notice a different taste which they attributed to the lack of circulation and lower temperatures of the brick warehouse. Instead of dumping these barrels as a failure, they continued to allow the bourbon to age longer to what turned out to be near perfection.
After 17 years, the father-son team discovered that unlike most bourbons, these barrels had lessened in proof over time. Bottled at a barrel-proof of around 87 proof, Master’s Keep still has the same light amber coloring and sour corn scent of the rest of Wild Turkey’s bourbons, but the difference is in the taste.
Proving himself wrong, Jimmy Russell’s Master’s Keep was able to maintain the caramel and vanilla taste throughout the aging process. These flavors mixing with honey, oak, and a chocolate bitterness make room for a slightly sour yet dry finish, setting it apart from other Wild Turkey bourbons.
Master’s Keep was released to the American market just last month! Request your bottle today by using our Contact Us form and be among the first to taste the newest Wild Turkey bourbon!

Sitting on a tree covered knoll overlooking the Napa Valley is Rombauer Vineyards which was founded in 1982 by Koerner and Joan Rombauer. The winery features caves that extend for over a mile into the hillside and they provide a constant temperature and humidity which result in optimum conditions for aging Rombauer wines.
Their unique style of Chardonnay has developed over time with select vineyards from the Carneros region. The cool climate and clay soils offer ideal conditions for their Chardonnay grapes.
The 2012 Rombauer Carneros Chardonnay was aged for ten months in American and French Oak. It is a soft yellow color that will darken with age. You’ll notice bright, vibrant tropical fruit aromas flowing from the glass while underlying grapefruit and lime add depth and character to the aroma. The palate features layers of cantaloupe, pineapple and vanilla. A mouthwatering finish leaves you wanting another sip. And the flavors only develop further as the wine ages.
Rombauer wines are consistently ranked high in the wine trade journals. Many of the finest restaurants throughout the country include Rombauer wines on their list and feature them by the glass.
