J.R. Ewing bourbon is in the house!

Thanks to our buddy Mike we finally have in our hot little hands a bottle of the J.R. Ewing brand of bourbon announced so many months ago. Ironically, it arrives on the same day we hear that TNT's "Dallas" has been canceled, shortly after ending its third season. Rats. It was a great run for the new series, and we have to say, that little John Ross certainly earned our respect. Bummed that we won't be able to see his further adventures. The show met our expectations, which were pretty high.

The news on the show's official Facebook page said: "TNT has decided not to renew 'Dallas.' We are extremely proud of the series, which defied expectations by standing as a worthy continuation of the Ewing saga. We want to thank everyone involved with the show, from the extraordinary cast to the impeccable production team, led by the show's creative forces, Cynthia Cidre and Mike Robin. We especially want to thank the people of Dallas for their warm and generous hospitality during the production of the series." Nice. Again, we're bummed.

But on to the sauce! The bottle is square and regal and solid, all 750 mL of it. It's 80 proof. It's four years old and from Kentucky. And you can see an image of Southfork Ranch through its front ...

Sweet. Note the Southfork logo on the front, which is also replicated on the sticker across the cap.

The bourbon was featured a few times on the new "Dallas" series, including a scene in what is now the very last episode. (Sob!)

But hey, what about the matching J.R. monogrammed glasses? OK, guess we can't be too greedy.
