Have you experienced Wheel Horse Whiskey yet?
First you might be wondering what a wheel horse is. It’s the horse closest to the wheels of a wagon or buggy. It was also a lawn tractor company.
Now for the bourbon itself, it’s distilled at the Green River Distilling Co. in Owensboro, Kentucky . It was one of Whisky Advocate’s top 20 whiskies of 2021 coming in at #19.
The horse in the photo is Álfadis. She is an Icelandic horse and belongs to our friend and listener Lisa Davis. Thank you for allowing us to get a photo with your beautiful horse, Lisa!
Now let’s get onto the review from Jim and Mike. Be sure to catch the podcast episode on your favorite platform, for more information. Cheers!
