At first glance, I thought this might turn out to be a “novelty” whisky. It has a story to go along with the label, and though interesting the story is unrelated to whisky. “Ken Kesey was an American novelist. His work included ‘Sometimes a Great Notion’ and ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’.
FURTHUR is a 1939 school bus that was purchased by Ken using his earnings from his best-selling novel. In 1964 Ken and his “Merry Pranksters” wild with life and lust for big fun, painted the school bus in dayglo colors, and filmed its “Trip” across the US.”
But behind the label is a 2-year-old MGP rye picked by the palates at BC Merchants and bottled in Pembroke, KY. MGP knows how to make rye and BC Merchants knows how to pick barrels. Let’s break this down and see if it’s worth your money!
