Burning Chair is an interesting whiskey.
The head distiller, Dave Phinney, comes from a wine background and used that to influence this bourbon.
Burning Chair is a bourbon whiskey produced by Savage and Cooke out of the San Francisco Bay area of California.
While this expression is a sourced whiskey from 3 different sources*, it's then vatted together and finished for 8 months in Napa Valley wine barrels that we hand selected by Dave Phinney.
The color has a deep reddish hue so you can definitely see the wine influence.
It's bottled at 44% and comes in a beautiful matte black and triangular shaped bottle.
4% malted barley
*sourced locations are Kentucky, Indiana and Tennessee.

The Glendronach distillery is known for their non-peated whisky that usually has a sherry influence. This expression is their first time in recent years putting out a peated whisky.
While it is peated and matured in ex-bourbon barrels, they still finish it in both Oloroso and PX sherry casks.
It is then bottled at 46% abv.
Natural color and non-chill filtered.
At 25ppm this is not too heavy on the peat so it's not a smoke bomb in any sense of the word, but it's enough peat to make this an interesting dram. Both Mike and I enjoyed this one a lot. (neat) but DO NOT recommend this one on ice!
The nose is fantastic and the mild, yet clingy peat smoke makes this an enjoyable dram that lasts on the palate for an extended time.

As a fan of scotch and other whiskeys I was tired of looking up reviews for new whiskeys that just oozed of snobbery. I wanted to create an outlet for average Joe's who don't have a sommelier palate. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, I moved to San Diego, California in 2010 with my wife. I'm also a fan of MMA, pro-wrestling, comic books, video games and strongman. All subjects are topic for discussion on the podcast.
