About the Author

Luke Castle


Growing up in Minnesota gives a person a great appreciation for anything that warms the body and soul. Whiskey and wine have been helping to warm Luke for many years. Jim Beam and coke morphed into whiskey waters and eventually Bourbon. Two buck chuck led to several trips to Napa Valley and a love for most varietals of wine. He is fortunate enough to have traveled most of the US through his career in financial services. A beautiful and understanding wife mostly tolerates his other hobbies including golf, hunting, and reading. 2 young kids keep them busy as well. Appreciation for the subtle differences that each decision a distiller makes keeps him coming back for more and has him excited for the future.

    I agree with Luke! I’m gonna drink it because I paid a lot for it, but I feel like I’m choking it down. Had a lot of poutporri/rose flavor for me. I do collect bottles, so it will be cool for that but I will never buy again.

    At least they have a really cool bottle. I just tried some “The CLover” bourbon. I made 3 variations o 3 bourbon cocktails and they all sucked! And the bottle sucked too..
