"Warehouse X?  Is that the one in Cardiff?"

Buffalo Trace makes this:

and that makes them the best damn distillers out there.

Sounds like someone at Buffalo-Trace read about the American chemist/Absinthe enthusiast who reconstructed the perfect Absinthe by reverse engineering its chemistry.

This will work...good luck keeping it secret.

So now we know where Quantum Apostrophe works.

I'm sure the marketing people are ahead of the science and already have the Warehouse X branding all worked out. Doesn't matter what the ultimate product is, they're going to market it according to plan.

I used to be a single malt snob (like eleventh-billion other douchebags), and openly mocked American Bourbon with a condescending laugh and a smug "I know so much better than you" shiat-eating grin.

Then I tasted Buffalo Trace; it's now my favorite sipping whisky.

Buffalo Trace has a pretty long history of experimental whiskeys so I don't think it is that.  On my desk right now is a 375 of their Oat, a 375 of their Rice and a 375 of their Single Oak Project.  Single Oak > Oat > Rice.    Waiting for their 2 new ones, the Hot Box Toasted Barrel and the Heavy Char.  I have not been able to get my hands on them yet.

Also kobrakai has excellent taste.

I bought a small bottle on a whim and have no complaints.

When that distillery is and has been the contract distiller for Pappy Van Winkle for over a decade now, I'm pretty sure they can make a good product.

Thank you. I also have two bottles at home.

George T. Stagg is great, when you can find it, but Buffalo Trace makes a more common variety that is also delicious:

Well, considering none of this is in my house, I am pretty sure I have failed as a man.  Off to the liquor store!

This is also made by Buffalo Trace, is $9 a fifth in NYC, and can go toe-to-toe with many double and triple the price bourbons. i.imgur.com

Benchmark is really tasty. There are also exactly no distinctive flavors to it. It's almost the ideal "yeah, this tastes like Bourbon" bourbon.

I like it, and it's an excellent value, but it's almost weird at times.

Indeed. $9/fifth in NYC usually means a plastic bottle, a heavy turpentine flavor, and horrific hangovers. It is the most perfect cheap whiskey ever made. If you never saw the bottle or price, you would think "This is a nice standard bourbon." I stopped buying things like Four Roses and Makers Mark as my go-to mixer or serve-at-parties and switched to Benchmark. Nary a squawk from my guests, my snob friends were shocked.
