We are a site dedicated to all things bourbon. We provide bourbon news, reviews, recipes, and ratings. Our rating system provides a simple percentage that we hope will help you in your decision making when selecting new bourbon choices at your favorite store. We try to review mostly bourbon but we do occasionally review rye whiskey, scotch, craft beer, and other spirits. We invite you sit back and explore our pages.

Tim Doty, “Doty” as he is known to his friends, is the founder and main writer at Bourbon & Oak. Doty is a long time investigator currently living in Atlanta, Georgia with his wife and two sons. Doty has been a bourbon lover since the day he tried the spirit, well over 5 years ago, and has been trying and reviewing new bourbons ever since. Traveling several different states and cities for work allows him to get his hands on some great bourbon and that is one of his favorite aspects of his job. In addition to his love of bourbon, Doty also enjoys craft beers, scotch, and hockey. Doty started Bourbon & Oak to help others learn about bourbon as well as to have a place for bourbon fans to find information. He invites you to sit back, explore the pages of Bourbon & Oak, and most importantly, enjoy yourself.
Celebrated barman Marlon Hall might look like a mere lad; he still gets carded very often, but he is quickly approaching 40. He has been crafting cocktails almost half his life. Marlon acknowledges that he initially got behind the bar for a quick buck, but after learning about the art of the cocktail from some of the best in the business, he soon realized that he was born for this craft! Marlon’s honed his craft in restaurants in Texas, New York, and Florida, his current home. From the mixed drink in a martini glass craze to the resurgence of the craft cocktail, Marlon has seen it all. Marlon will be a smiling, friendly and damn talented presence behind the bar, and he’s ready to share some of his favorite classic bourbon and scotch cocktails and a few twists of his own with Bourbon & Oak.
