This is a first for me, as I usually review Scotch and Bourbon, But when you find a golden nugget like this you just have to share it. This is a review of an outstanding BBQ joint in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I originally went to a place up the street called Whiskey Business, but sadly they didn’t have anything I couldn’t live without. The gentleman working there kindly directed me to Albert G’s, which is just right down the street. The first time I went in I spoke to Tyler, who unfortunately is leaving for the higher elevations (No pun intended) of Colorado. In the 15 minutes I talked to him I could tell that he was knowledgeable, a Bourbonite, and very well spoken. They have around 115 different bottles of bourbon and American Whiskey on their shelves a long with at least six barrel aged cocktails. I was extremely tempted to belly up to the bar and never leave, but sadly it was eleven o’clock in the morning and a little to early to drink, so I promised to come back later in the evening.When I came back I met Shannon. He’s a no nonsense tell you how it is kind of guy. We bantered back and forth for a bit, before I made my selections for my flight. There were so many to try, and I had to narrow it down to four. It took a bit of discussion, and a lot of pondering, but I finally got it. Shannon said it was probably the best Flight he has ever built except for one exception. We both agreed after the fact that the one exception would have to be made. I originally had Jim Beam Distillers Masterpiece, Orphan Barrel Rhetoric, Booker’s Bourbon Dot’s Batch, and Wild turkey Diamond Anniversary. I really wasn’t all that impressed with the Jim Beam, and would much rather replace it with the Jefferson’s Ocean. Which I ordered after my flight. These reviews will be coming over the next couple weeks as well. It was a great night. Next time I will have to try the food. If you are a Bourbonite living in Tulsa, or just visiting you gotta check this place out. They are also getting a Bourbon Club going. I’ll let you know more as I find out. When you order the flight make it:
- Wild Turkey Diamond Anniversary
- Booker’s Bourbon Dot’s Batch
- Jefferson’s Ocean
- Orphan Barrel Rhetoric
Shannon if you are reading this we need to name this flight after me! Maybe the Bourbonite Flight?
I welcome your thoughts and opinions. Review suggestions are welcome.
Until Next Time,
