If you can find it, Red River is some really good Bourbon.
Made in Carrollton Tx.

Silver Star is not a bourbon, and Red River is sourced from out state and put in a cool Texas type bottle. Ranger Creek (San Antonio) age their own barrels. .36 is good.

Anyone seen Weller 12 black label lately? Been a while since I’ve found it. Blanton’s has been easier to find.

I have posted it before, if you are looking for a sort of "quality control" stamp on a bottle you are thinking about, look for two phrases "Distilled and Bottled by_________" or "Bottle in Bond". Some will go as far as "Distilled, Aged, and Bottled by_______". The Bottle in Bond stamp, is the Eagle Scout of the bourbon world. It has the most standards in accordance to law that have to be satisfied before it can be called BIB.

Sourced bourbons use words like "Produced and Bottled by_____" They can't use the former because they don't actually make it. There are only 3 or 4 real Texas Bourbons where they control the product grain to glass as they say.

I know it stinks when you find out one you like is sourced. I am a good label reader but I have been burned a couple of times not paying close attention. But I am in the minority where that matters, most people drink what they like and don't care where it came from. Neither of which is wrong, just personal preference.

Rebecca Creek, Longhorn and TX are my favorites. I wanted to try the new stuff made in Waco(Balcones) but the price was too steep for a trial run.

Thanks for the lesson .270
I suppose I'll still drink it because I like the taste but now I've lost the Texas pride that came with it.

I took the liberty to create this picture to illustrate my post from earlier today. Notice the wording on the Red River compared to Ranger Creek (San Antonio, awesome distillery tour!) and the oldest age stated Bottle in Bond made Henry McKenna.

Never had red river or silver star so was just trying to remember brands. Ranger Creek is good, I was given a bottle of their .22 and it was a good unique flavor

I have been trying scotch recently and this is my go to evening drink these days. Yes it's a blend but it has good flavor without being too strong like a lot of scotch can be. If you want to add a scotch your bourbon whiskey collection I think this would be it, and it's less than $30/bottle so that helps.
