That bottom bottle is one of my favorites. I wish I could find it as it’s hard to beat

Unless it says "Single Barrel" then technically it's most likely a blend.

Even though a product comes from a single distillery and from the same batch, multiple barrels are dumped into a vat before bottling, hence the technicality of being blended.

Most folks think of a blend though as something like a Jim Bean White Label, Maker's Mark, Jack Daniels, or a Johnnie Walker where multiple styles, years, proofs, etc. are blended by a master blender (and team) to come to a consistent tasting product over the years.

Advantages to both but it's all personal based on your taste preferences.

All this is what I "think" I learned from listening to WhiskyCast (https://whiskycast.com/) for years before my liquor budget turned into my things (think diapers, toys, etc.) for the kids budget.

And it is a crap blend. Old Crow is far better, for that mattrer Benchmarks beats it badly.

Having another snort of the Smokewagon this evening. Probably will just disappoint me when I run out. Might not be able to find it again.

cheers

Try Makers 101 if you like cherry/Dr. Pepper flavors.

I also like the Devils River Rye and Ironroot Prometheus when I want to drink Texas made stuff.
