TBH, I am not sure I want anyone else to know about this whisky. I recently toured distilleries in Kentucky and we tasted some fine stuff, but a bottle of Calumet we stumbled on at a restaurant ended up being the most memorable - and then no one else had it. It is smooth and light and has a brightness and depth of finish that feels both easy and sophisticated. I bought both the 8 year old and the small batch blend of 15 & 8 and there are subtle differences but both outshine other readily available bourbons. As I finish writing this, I am regretting not first buying out the remaining bottles.
