What are some of your favorite spots for online bourbon purchasing? I like masterofmalt.com and ilovescotch.com but neither are great for hard to find bourbons. Would love to hear some recommendations!

Depends on your definition of hard to find. Limited Edition stuff isn't going to be found online at a reasonable price. Shelf stuff that you have trouble finding locally is doable. Wine searcher and 1000corks are good to search nationwide. Not all stores in all states are allowed to ship. If your state is shippable K&L, HiTime, and Binny's have deep inventories and ship.

A case of Old Rip, Lot B, or Pappy is only three bottles. A case of ETL, however, is 12. Seems to vary quite a bit.

So a while back, some of you recommended (46 and 2 I believe) that I try Wild Turkey Rare Breed. After opening it, trying a few shots and letting the bottle sit, now that I'm well into it here is my opinion: I absolutely love it! In fact, this and the Four Roses Small Batch have a very similar flavor profile. Sipping it, I get what I'm guessing is the rye in the finish. Really enjoying it.

So thanks for the recommendation, it was spot on.

Now to try some Blantons.

Gotta' LOVE Whiskey Wednesdays! After contributing a fresh bottle of Yamazaki 12 to the collection (replacing the 2 near-empties that I polished off a few weeks ago!), had a dram of the 2014 LE FRSmB, and finished off a bottle of 2011 WLW (133.5 proof) with some good friends. Big Grin

I was out by the fire pit, roasting marshmallows while most of them were inside smoking fine cigars and drinking even better bourbon watching the Cubs win. Good thing it was a warm night. But I got the better deal since I had 3 fingers of the WLW (and I have fat fingers) to finish off the bottle. Wink

TTFN,

To anyone considering midwinters night dram this year:

i just tasted my act 3 scene 3 versus my newly gathered act 4 scene 3. I have to say act 4 tastes better than act 3! Stack it deep! Cant wait til it hits KS!

Not that I know of. The topic has come up in some of the bourbon forums from time to time, maybe Straight Bourbon IIRC, and some of the forums have members who are distillery employees or are otherwise local, and they've answered such questions before, so you might do some searches in those places and see if the threads still show up...

As I recall, the Gift Shops at each Distillery definitely occasionally have things you can't get elsewbere, and maybe there are a few unique offerings around town too but I don't remember any specifics.

BTW if you get a chance to try Mitchers 10 yr, its pretty damn good. Like a buffalo trace but more mature.

I generally buy 12 bottles at a time (which can be mixed) from the local liquor store in order to receive a 20% "bar discount". The last time I did, after pulling the usual (all they had) Eagle Rare and Four Roses Single Barrel off the shelf, I was at ten. Looking at the Wild Turkey section there were a few Russel Reserve Single Barrel so I tossed two of them in the box even though at $50(list) it was a bit over what I generally spend.

But I just poured a glass of Russel Reserve Single Barrel this evening in celebration and damn if it isn't really good, maybe the best tasting bourbon I've ever had.

Hey, Deqlyn, I mixed your earlier message above about trading for BTAC Sazerac... I would, but I'm on my last bottle with only about a 1/2" left, and I'm not resupplying it since I was never crazy about it. It's good, but a bit too mild to me, I vastly prefer the Handy or just Baby Saz in that family. Now, if it were 18yo *and* Barrel Strength like Handy... Smile
