Proof66 Notes

Blaum Bros Distilling Company is located in Galena, IL founded by brothers Matt and Mike Blaum for whom the distillery is named. They pride themselves on being a true grain-to-glass distillery in that they control every aspect of the process from milling the grain, to fermentation, to distillation, to blending and bottling. Their grain and infusions are sourced locally to the state of Illinois. In an interesting note for an interview with Dubuque 365 (Mike Ironside), they age their whiskey barrels in what used to be the local Mormon church.

I really wish I could, in good conscience, give this a better review because it was an unexpected gift from my mother who was vacationing in Galena, but unfortunately, it's just pretty average. Has a woodsy taste with a smooth finish, but it's just simply average in the taste department. Mine was aged 7 years, and according to the bottle was from the first batch produced. It looks like that is a legitimate thing because both of those markings look convincingly hand-written. In any event, I'd be open to trying a later batch to see if this is how it's meant to turn out, because honestly, what I tasted was comparable to Gentleman Jack (and I may actually prefer the GJ) which I can get at anytime at my local Sam's Club for about the same price without the trek to Galena or special ordering it online. That being said, a solid first try considering this was batch #1. Not bad, but not great either.
