Yes, its alright. Not worth the 53 bucks tho. Had a friend who liked it. Caution urself as im a snob.

Got it for much less than that at a Costco, Mr. snob.

Bought a bottle of Belle Meade Sherry Cask Finish Bourbon a couple weeks ago and finally opened it. Very smooth bourbon and is becoming a favorite.

Still haven't opened the bottle of Pot Still and E.H. Taylor Small Batch yet though that I picked up around Christmas. I'll finish some of the others first.

I'm a gadget geek and if you like to add ice and you've always wanted clear ice I bought a clear ice maker off of Amazon for $32 that works and makes really cool crystal clear 2.75" spheres. It took a little tinkering but I found that if I use room temperature bottled water, fill it as recommended and don't shake the freezer as they are freezing they come out crystal clear. Shaking causes air bubbles if the molds are agitated. The only downside is it takes about 30 hours or so in my freezer and my freezer is attached to the refrigerator so you have to be careful going in and out until they are done.

Tap water works fairly well but mine must have too many impurities in it because they came out about 80% clear. Going to try room temperature water run through a Brita filter next.

I snagged a bottle each of EH Taylor Small Batch, and Stagg Jr. today. Both very good, in my extremely inexperienced opinion!

Got together for a session with some friends tonight. Got the chance to drink some memorable bottles and knock one off my bucket list.

The most recent George T Stagg gets ripped in some circles for being lower proof than usual but it was really good. Very cohesive and the flavor punched through the heat. A solid pour.

Early 90s 12 yr old Turkey continues to shine. Classic Turkey funk but well balanced with just enough sweetness. I’ll never get tired of this.

Wilderness Trail is a newer distillery but they’re doing things the right way. Tried a 4yr single barrel rye that was not betrayed by its youth. Tasted older. Looking forward to what’s next.

Got to try a Bourbon Valley distilled in 1974 and sent to Japan. It’s a birth year bottle so it automatically has a place in my heart. Very good but not something I’d drop $800 on.

There was a lot more but I’m tired and a bit faded. Peace to all y’all.

I had both this weekend at the hotel bar where I’m staying, really liked them with Stagg being a little better for me. Also tried a Booker which I loved.

I haven't seen this one discussed here before. Wild Turkey, kY spirit, which I believe is their single barrel version of rare breed. This was bottled in Jan 2020. Something I've never seen before when I popped the cork which had a noticeable 'pop's there was a white / smoke like vapor in the neck of the bottle. This is really good.

I was at a birthday party for a good friend, and snatched up a bottle of "Barrel Bourbon" for him as a present. He opened and shared, glad he did!

+/- $90 a bottle.

Worth every penny!

So rather than start a new thread, I'd thought I'd discuss what bottles do you have open in your cabinet and what will come out of reserves first.

For some Pennsylvania folks liquor stores are closed (I believe) others who may be at high risk are likely only going out for food (my case, my wife and daughter are on immunosuppressants).

Open bottles in order they will be consumed,
Dickel 13 or Bib almost empty
ECBP
Bakers 7 single barrel
George T Stagg

In reserve
Dickel bib
EHT small batch
Sazerac Rye x2
ECBP x2
Blantons x2
Eagle rare x2
Wild Turkey Ky Spirit.

North Carolina will turn into a package store effective today.
You come to the door, it will be locked, and an employee will let you in, one at a time. They walk with you through the store, you point to what you want, the employee will pick it up and bring to to the front desk, you check out, and the next person comes in. Only thing the customer touches is the credit card machine.

Since watching the NCAA Tournament is not possible, DirecTV has been running the movie Bourbontucky on several channels, if you have DTV you can watch it on your phone, pc, etc.

Probably a good idea to have a glass ready and preferably a cigar in hand

This documentary covers the centuries-old production of Bourbon, particularly in Bourbon County, Kentucky. It includes the myths, facts, and the rising popularity of Bourbon bars.
Along the way one learns about the making of the copper stills, the growing of the basic ingredients, and the making (and recycling) of the oak barrels. And then there are the fascinating people involved in the process.

Not a Bourbon but it is a very interesting whiskey, made here in Atlanta. I bought some after a tasting event. I can't describe it better than this:

"Georgia's 1st-Ever Double Gold Whiskey, Duality is also the world's 1st whiskey to mash, ferment & distill malted rye and malted barley in the same batch.

Duality is the crossroads where the fruit, spice & robustness of rye meet the smoke of a Highland-style single malt.

Notes of honey, toffee, stone fruit, and a dusting of smoke."

Did some quick napkin math and at 1oz/day I have enough on hand for 23 years. I'm in an Islay mood this week so no bourbon.

As if Van Winkle wasn't expensive as it was, a Veteran in Florida just paid $40,000 for one of the limited bottles of 25yo ORVW.

The asking price was $20k but they were being charitable to the seller, a restaurant trying to keep itself and employees afloat.

Even $20,000 is absurd but whatever. Smile

I was in a local liquor store Friday and my eye caught a bottle of Woodford Reserve Master Collection Batch Proof on the top shelf behind the counter. I have never seen a bottle like this so of course I had to pick it up. Guy said they get 2 bottles a year. They also had a bottle of the Oat as well but I left that one for someone else.

One of these days I'll crack it open but at 123 proof I think it will need a cube or two in the glass.

BT has released the 18 Year Marriage Col EH Taylor BiB. MSRP is $70. I read on the 'net that secondary pricing is as much as $2,000. A probative visit to a few of the LLS determined that the probability of buying a bottle us pretty much zero.

So I bought a consolation bottle of Early Times BiB and its surprisingly nice. I still like the 1792 BiB more but the ET would be a re-purchase.

I also saw a Justified bourbon but did not examine it.

Any info on Broken Fence, Broken Thorn, etc?

I found a bottle of Weller 12 at my backup liquor store the other night. Their selection is usually mediocre and I only go there to buy marg supplies bc its on my way home. I instictively grabbed the bottle but then my eyes fell upon the price tag... $189.99. It is most likely still there if anyone is interested.



I'm gonna vote for the funniest frog with the loudest croak on the highest log.
