Character Goatson
A rich and buttery Tennessee style Bourbon at 50% ABV (get some).

In 2008, Stephen Gould and Karen Knight founded Golden Moon Distillery in Golden, Colorado. Stephen had amassed a world-class collection of antique books on Spirits and the art of distilling and they shared a dream to bring this knowledge to life — creating premium, hand-crafted Spirits. In twelve years that distillery has amassed dozens of awards recognizing distilling excellence and their success creating a wind range of Whiskies, Spirits, and Liqueurs.

The newest addition to the Gun Fighter line of Whiskeys from Golden Moon Distillery is an entirely different thing. Gun Fighter 13 American Straight Bourbon is a thirteen year-old Tennessee Bourbon that took home the Gold medal in 2019 at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. It seems that the good folks at Golden Moon somehow got the chance to scoop up a few premium orphan casks, making this a seriously limited edition that may not be repeatable.

Smartass Corner:
When big distilleries assemble their top-tier Spirits, the casks are individually sampled for quality and character. This allows the master blender to assemble the finished product from this group of winners. Sometimes there are a few casks left over. These are called "orphan casks."

Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
At any given time, there are more barrels of Bourbon in Kentucky than there are people. The population of the Bluegrass State is about 4.4 million. Today there are more than 5 million barrels of Bourbon sitting in the rick-houses of that Old Kentucky Home. That’s nearly 300 bottles of Bourbon per person, or about 60 gallons each.
Bourbon was declared "The Official Spirit of America" by an Act of Congress signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
"Remember that iconic poster from World War II showing Rosie the Riveter as a patriotic American woman doing her part for the war effort? Well, hundreds of businesses did their part too, and the Bourbon distillers stepped right up with ‘em.

Distilleries all over Kentucky and Tennessee were re-tooled to distill fuel alcohol and ferment penicillin cultures to treat wounded soldiers."
