about Warthens bourbon. Saw a bottle yesterday and the name rang slightly good bells but I wasn't going to buy based on my slippery memory.

Probably made by Heaven Hill, it's bottled by the Medley family, whose ancestors distilled whiskey but have their current stuff made by somebody (I've read Heaven Hill). That's not unusual; there are it 8 or 9 big distillers in the U.S. Lots of folks sell whiskey made by other people, including Van Winkle, Bullitt, and so forth.

Wathen's, I think, is over priced for what it is, which is nothing special. Ezra Brooks is much better.

I checked it out. It's made by Charles Medley Distillery in Owensboro, Ky. I've got nothing other than that. Didn't bother with internet reviews as they are quite subjective.

You can google up a list of all the bourbons that are on the market, who distilled them, where they are aged, and who bottles them. One of the biggest distillers Of ethanol in the US is an outfit named Midwest Grain Products. They make all kinds of hooch for a whole lot of folks. From cheap rotgut to high dollar booze. A lot of bourbon labels on the market today are exactly the same booze behind different labels for different prices.
