Proof66 Notes

Early Times Kentucky Whisky was first produced in 1860 and maintained a status through Prohibition as a "medicinal" whiskey. The mix of grains, or mashbill, follows a traditional bourbon-style recipe of corn, rye, and barley. It's blended down with the famous Kentucky limestone water that has made those spirits so desirable the world round.

Early Times Kentucky Whisky is not a bourbon whiskey because some of the whiskey is aged in used barrels. For the bourbon label, all barrels must be new. This is not necessarily a detriment to the whisky; for example, many scotches are aged in used bourbon barrels.

Incidentally, Early Times has also adopted the spelling of "whisky" without the "-ey-" ending in the style of Scotch whisky and Canadian whisky rather than the more customary American and Irish spelling.

I tried this with minimal expectations given the price point. It lacked the depth and complexity of a good bourbon or rye but was not rotgut either. Surprisingly drinkable for the money. If economy is important, this is a excellent choice for the category.
