Joseph Magnus Bourbon Review

Here I sit down to review the Joseph Magnus Bourbon (Batch 1). The Jos. A. Magnus & Co. distillery in Washington D.C. has set out to recreate the style of the original Magnus Bourbon of the late 1800’s. They begin by sourcing casks of mature bourbon and then finishing it in Pedro Ximenez, Oloroso, and Cognac casks before carefully blended them together. This unique bourbon is fairly new to the market, but it’s already winning some great awards (and rightfully so).

As of 05-05-2016, my current bottle count stands at over 2,200 bottles. I am a Certified Specialist of Spirits and have also been certified by the Tequila Regulatory Council (CRT). I’ve been actively collecting for the last two decades and what started as a small basic home bar has transformed (with the help and understanding of my wonderful wife) into what I think is a pretty nice collection. Thank you for watching and sharing in my passion.

SilverSurfer says:

awesome videos! ran into ur channel while looking for info on a good liquor for cigar pairing~ do u also smoke or pair cigars with any of ur collection?

Kane Smith says:

I’m always interested in seeing more Cognac finished bourbon. But this one has too long a back story for its own good; hearing “grandfather” and “MGP” together immediately turns me off. Hate to be negative before I could try the juice, but this one simply raises too many red flags, and an SF double gold often doesn’t mean much.

The Whisky Hunter says:

You have a nose like a bloodhound my brother, very nice review

Zesty Cheesemaker says:

i live in the area, saw your review and i was thoroughly amazed that in my own backyard there were great whisky lying around. All you have to do visit their website and they’ll direct you to a nearby retailer that will ship it. Of which i’ve picked up 3 bottles and most likely pick up a case the next go around. As to the review, i definitely sense thru the aroma and taste just about the same as what you have reviewed. But to further enhance the experience i am smoking an AF Anejo Shark. Great Review, keep them coming.

… fast will you be able to acquire Booker’s Rye? That will surely need a review!
