The average bourbon brand has much in common with a McDonald’s cheeseburger: From California to North Carolina, the spirits taste identical no matter where you travel.

This is not a comment on quality. See, bourbons such as Jim Beam and Maker’s Mark spend years slumbering in charred oak barrels, where the distilled contents develop snowflake-unique nuances. When bottling time comes, hundreds of barrels of bourbon are blended, ensuring consistency and smoothing out idiosyncrasies.

But lately, distilleries have stopped blending. They’ve begun releasing bourbons decanted from a single barrel, permitting batch-by-batch variations in tint, scent, and taste. These are bourbons as inimitable as a fingerprint. Once the bottle is empty, you’ll never savor that same flavor again.

Single-barrel bourbon’s inception can be traced to Kentucky’s Leestown Distillery (now part of Buffalo Trace). In 1984, master distiller Elmer T. Lee convinced company bigwigs to let him release bourbons culled from choice barrels. That experiment, dubbed Blanton’s, trailblazed a path for today’s single-barrel delights. In addition to Blanton’s, liquor shelves now sag with prime offerings such as the rich and assertive, 10-year-old Eagle Rare; the smooth, dangerously drinkable Evan Williams Single Barrel; and Four Roses, which lets liquor stores personally select barrels for bottling.

Yet the trend recently hit critical mass with February’s release of Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve, which was aged for nine years and packs a heady 120-proof wallop. “We pay close attention to the barrels we select… as we want to ensure that we’re bottling an extraordinary bourbon with a complex balance of aroma and taste,” explained distiller Fred Noe of the Knob Creek release, which boasts loads of luscious vanilla, leather and caramel.

You might just say that it’s a singular spirit.

The Best Bourbon(s) for an Old Fashioned

Deciding on a great bourbon, much less the best for an Old Fashioned is more complicated than you’d think.

It’s not as easy as simply finding the highest quality bourbon you can, buying it, then using it to make the best Bourbon Old Fashioned ever.

Yes, the quality’s important. But selecting the “best” bourbon means considering many things, like your budget, how practical you want to be, and personal preference.

For example, when you say “the best” do you really mean “the best” or do you just want the most for your money?

If you want “the best,” or a bourbon that’s among the best, why not grab a bottle of WL Weller Full Proof and have at it? But realistically, why would you want to defile such beauty with sugar and bitters…much less ice?

I think it’s best not to offend the whiskey gods and just pass on that idea. Instead, enjoy it neat or on the rocks with a few chilled whiskey stones.

So let’s assume you’re looking for something we can all enjoy. Something practical and right around the corner, like a great single-barrel or small-batch bourbon that’s premium quality, well-priced, and Kentucky-made. Nice, I think that’ll do the trick.

“Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.”
