    Cedar Ridge Iowa Bourbon Whiskey

    Real surprised I havent seen much on here yet for the amount of people that rave about Templeton. This was released July 1st and is just about totally sold out here in Cedar Rapids. I found a lone bottle tonight and cracked it open. Incredibly smooth. IMO, more so than TR. Definitely has hints of TR but a bit sweeter. If you are able to find some, grab it right away. I'm going to pick up a few more bottles tomorrow.

    Spirits from Cedar Ridge Winery & Distillery, LLC

    Until it's proven that they have won any nationwide/worldwide competitions, this guy won't be droppin 33.99 a bottle for that. Should start a lot lower.

    I bought a bottle of their spiced rum when they had their grand opening, and it was really good as well.

    Re: Cedar Ridge Iowa Bourbon Whiskey

    If I understand my bourbon correctly, Cedar Ridge and Templeton Rye are two completely different types of bourbon.

    Cedar Ridge has a corn base which makes it sweeter. I haven't tried either but I have heard that both are very good .

    First of all, Cedar Ridge doesn't make a spiced rum. They make a dark rum, which is not the same thing. I had it, and thought very little of it. The worst Caribbean rums I have in my house are better than this shoddy product. Trust the people who have been making it for centuries.

    If you want a high-quality rum, find anything from Neisson.

    Templeton Rye is not bourbon. To be bourbon, corn must be the majority ingredient(51%)

    Rye is rye, and bourbon is bourbon.

    I won't try the bourbon. I hate bourbon. Tastes like sweet charcoal to me. I'll stick with rye.

    That's kind of like throwing away all of one grape varietal because you had one bottle of Pinot from one wine maker and didn't like it so that means you don't like all pinot's. There is more than one bourbon out there with more than one taste profile....Heck they change with ice and water in them, let alone from a diferent distillery

    Not the case. I continue to try different bourbons when offered, and my palate continues to reject the stuff. I'm not saying people shouldn't like bourbon. I personally do not buy the stuff, for I don't like it.

    So when Cedar Ridge makes a product, I think of the shoddy rum, coupled with my disdain for bourbon, a reasoning for not trying it on my own dime. I'm sure I'll get poured a shot of it eventually, will drink it, and quickly find something I like.

    I reject your font and its size, sir! You should throw it away!

    I havent tried either yet, but sounds like the Rye might be more up my alley. I don't have what youd call a sophisticated palate for whiskey but like to give different ones a whirl. I can tell you this. The wife will think my breath stinks no matter which one I drink.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Not sure what happened there, I too reject my font size.... And I think that if you had a wife that was like "I love it when you smoke cigars and drink whiskey..." it might be a bad thing

    Re: Cedar Ridge Iowa Bourbon Whiskey

    Small world. I just had a julep made with this stuff, and I came away unimpressed. Maybe a true bourbon fan can describe it better than I.

    It may be the product, or it may be my palate, but I just don't care for this stuff.

    Just my opinion, but if it's not from Kentucky, it's not bourbon.

    Maytag Blue Cheese is great but it's not Stilton.

    Not to be a whiskey snob or anything... but, to be a "bourbon", it must be distilled in Bourbon, County, Kentucky. If it wasn't distilled in that county, then it is just regular whiskey.

    It's kind of like bubbly around the world. If it is from Champagne, France, then it is Champagne - otherwise it is called sparkling wine.
