Winchester Straight Bourbon Whiskey

Today I am reviewing Winchester Straight Bourbon Whiskey. I picked up this sampler since I had never heard of this whiskey. The producers are TerrePure based in North Carolina...Interesting. Even more exciting is their approach to producing whiskey. From its website "Terressentia was founded on the idea that technology can radically improve both quality & taste". Now that is some food for thought.
