Fred Minnick Tasting Notes

No. 9, 90 proof, $39.99

About: A blend of straight rye and straight bourbon mashed, fermented, distilled and aged at the Cedar Ridge Distillery. The blend is 60% bourbon (three to four years old; mashbill: 74% corn,14% malted rye, 12% malted barley) and 40% rye (three to four years old; mashbill: 51% rye, 34% malted barley, 15% corn and malted barley.)

It begins quite floral, with hints of honeysuckle and Lilly. Then, corn and caramel hit. On the palate, cornbread, jalapeño, apple butter and a hint of charred marshmallow. A lovely medium finish offers a hint of chocolate. This is very much a worthy everyday pour.

Score: 85 points

No. 9 Reserve, 99 proof, $69.99

About: Same mashbills and blending percentages as above. But minimum age on barrels is 4 years old. 

Think cinnamon, clove, butter and oak. As it hits the palate, it coats it with this goodness, buttery almost, dripping down the side of the cheeks and warms all throughout. There’s a comfort here, cornbread-like, with notes of fried apple pie, apricot and macaroon. It finishes medium to long with a hint of banana’s foster. 

Score: 89

Riot Fest to have its very own Garbage Pail Kids Series



Somehow the wonderful people at Topps approved Riot Fest to have its very own Garbage Pail Kids Series just in time for the festival next week in Chicago (Sept. 16-18). And we couldn’t be more thrilled.

When we caught word that this would be actually happening, we immediately called some of our Riot friends to see if they’d be into having their own Garbage Pail Card. And within hours, Riot Fest Series One Garbage Pail Kids was born. And it’s fucking awesome:

1) NOFX (“Fat Mike”)
2) The Lawrence Arms (“The Lawrence Harmed”)
3) Naked Raygun (“Ray Gun”)
4) Descendents (“Mad Milo”)
5) Riot Fest (“Riot Festus”)
6) Andrew WK (“Awesome Andrew”)
7) Taking Back Sunday (“Taking Back Tidal Wave”)
8) GWAR (“GWAR Noir”)

These exclusive cards will ONLY be available in limited quantities at Riot Fest Chicago. And, by limited, we mean limited. So, if you want a pack—which contains the entire series—be sure to visit the Riot merch area on Friday because something’s telling us they won’t



make it past the day.backawesome-andrewfat-mikegwar-noirlawrence-harmedmad-miloray-gunriot-festustaking-back-tidal-wave
