    Default 1835 Texas Bourbon



    From Lewisville, Texas, this 90 proof offering is reasonably priced at $20 at Spec's Liquor. It's got great nose; sweet fragrant vanilla.

    On the tongue, you get the vanilla and a touch of honey as well. I picked up some oak and maybe a slight nutty flavor. Smooth and sweet but not too much. Very nice!



    I paired it with Rocky Patel's "the Edge" for a nice after dinner treat. Mmmmmmmm.....

    Sorry, but if its Bourbon, it's gotta come from Kentucky. Otherwise, it's a whiskey. No such thing as a bourbon from south of the red river. IMO...

    Not so sure about that. Here are a couple links of this topic.

    In the end it all comes down to "I know what I like".

    Nice! I used to sip something very similar when we would visit the sister and bro. in law down at Houston.

    I agree. I am glad you found something you enjoy. Its color is reminds me of Basil Hayden although BH may be a bit too delicate based on your description.

    Can you get Four Roses Bourbon in Texas? Its hard to find in OK but is worth the effort if you can get it. Have you had a chance to try the whiskey coming out of Garrison's distillery? It is impossible for me to find up here in Ok.

    As for the "no such thing..." comment, I was just giving you a hard time. Red River Rivalry and such...

    The term "whiskey" is too generic IMO. Bourbon, Scotch, Irish, Rye all fall under that category. Types of whiskey vary. 1835 is a type of whiskey that is a bourbon type or style. Tastes like Kentucky or Tennessee whiskey.

    I Googled 1835 and found forums that knocked it for being not a true bourbon because it wasn't from KY. Some bashed it for not being really from TX. Label says "bottled in Lewisville, TX." Some take that to mean it was made elswhere.

    I liked it. And I take no offense to anyone who questions what it is or where it comes from.

    Wonder if they sourced their whiskey from Kentucky and revised it to their own recipe? It would still be Bourbon and then it would also be "made in" Texas.

    At any rate, you liked it; so there you go...
