Peg Leg Porker 12-Year-Old Tennessee bourbon whiskey is released by a Nashville based family owned and operated BBQ restaurant, @peglegporker, which shares its name with the bourbon. The 12-Year-Old expression is the 3rd release by the brand, initially hitting the market in April of 2017; @peglegporkerbourbon made its debut in 2013 with a cask strength NAS offering, followed by an 8-year-old Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskey 2016.
Peg Leg Porker’s bourbon is sourced by Pitmaster and restaurant founder Carey Bringle, who puts the Tennessee whiskey through a unique finishing process prior to bottling. Bringle filters the 12-year-old whiskey through hickory charcoal that burned down in the same smoker where the restaurant cooks whole hogs, imparting both unique flavors and color on the final product. Batch No. 1 of the 12-year-old produced a mere 816 bottles, most of which sold out almost instantly, though Bringle plans to release the expression annually in small batches until his supply of whiskey runs dry.
If you assumed that the brand name refers to the golden pig featured on the label, you’d be mistaken. At age 17 Bringle was diagnosed with Osteogenic Sarcoma, an aggressive form of bone cancer. After undergoing 8 months of intensive chemotherapy, Carey lost his right leg. After winning a hard-fought battle with cancer, he emerged with a new perspective and renewed outlook on life; realizing that every day brought a new adventure, opportunity for new experiences, and most importantly, an opportunity to enjoy great food and spirits. It is this zest for life, positive attitude and sense of humor that’s led to the creation of Peg Leg Porker’s brand of sauces, rubs and spirits. – CareyBringle.com
A single grain whisky produced by Girvan that has been aged for 52 years. The deep golden color whisky on the nose is fairly powerful with lots of spice but when sipping it, there's a beautiful vanilla with a right level of sweetness to it.

They say a picture worth a thousand words. In this case it's an understatement! We spent so much time slogging our life away for money and work but we fail to appreciate a beautiful lady that was right in front of us all along! Mother nature gave us the view and the delicious elixir called WHISKEY. Arigato Gozaimasu! "Forever is composed of nows" ~Emily Dickinson

The Balvenie | Doublewood 12 Year
// On Sale - Lucky’s Market - $52.99
This scotch whisky is marked by a distinct and rare craftsmanship. The Balvenie is the only distillery in Scotland that grows its own barley, uses traditional floor malting and keeps a coppersmith and coopers (cask builders) on site. This is whisky making in its purest form. The Doublewood 12 Year has spent most of its life in American Oak Bourbon casks but is finished for nine months in Spanish Oak Oloroso Sherry casks. Then the smaller barrels are poured into large oak holding tanks called “tuns” which allow all of the scotch from the individual barrels to marry together.
NOSE Sweet fruit and Oloroso sherry notes, layered with honey and vanilla.
TASTE Smooth and mellow with beautifully combined flavours ~ nutty sweetness, cinnamon spiciness and a delicately proportioned layer of sherry.
This vintage bottle of 12 years double matured Talisker from 1990-2003 offer plenty of surprises. The smokiness is robust but not over powering, the texture is smooth with an oily finish. I personally think it taste better than the recent Talisker 25.
