How would you rate this whiskey?
While the label says Bird Dog, I’m pretty sure the dog shown on the label of the Bird Dog small batch bourbon in my hand is a beagle—maybe a hound. The mysteries don’t stop at the prominently featured beagle. The back label states that the bourbon is Kentucky stock, but we’re clearly dealing with sourced Kentucky bourbon, though there are only a few hints about where the bourbon actually comes from. Western Spirits, located in Bowling Green, Ky., paid some fine folks at Three Springs Bottling Company, a rectifier, to bottle the bourbon.
