I've had Knob Creek and a few others (can't recall names) and they were just too strong for me. I couldn't finish them, even when used in mint julep.

I think I prefer lower proof, smooth/mild, perhaps something on the sweeter side. Thinking of this, this is my preference for scotch, wine and sake as well. I'd like to drink straight or with a cube of ice but open to Old Fashioned.

I think you’re describing Angel’s Envy. It’s an 86.6 proof whiskey and too mild for me, but lots of people like it.


Just picked up a bottle of Old Forester Statesman
95 proof
Most sweet/fruity OF I’ve tried (Prohibition style is my fav OF btw)
$55 at the local Walgreens
Probably pick up another bottle on the next trip

Very nice. I'd be interested to hear about that BP Larceny.

YES, that is a great score.

I was able to find a Larceny B521.

Around here the ER is more difficult to find, unless you visit the Distillery.

In my limited experience, the ER represents one of the best values in Bourbon, if you can buy it at MSRP, approx. $32.00

A recent go-to for me has been Legent Bourbon.



It’s some variety of Jim Beam selected by Fred Noe and finished in sherry and red wine casks by Shinji Fukuyo from Suntory. It’s got notes I like from Bourbon and Japanese Whisky, it’s 47%, and it’s a bargain where I’m at. I can find it all day for about $35 where I live and is a money saver thanks to the Scotch tariffs in place or the cost of Hibiki and Yamazaki bottles from Suntory.

Making my Pilgrimage up to Kentucky next week for my Makers Mark Gold ticket tour and I'll probably buy a bottle from the barrel that (allegedly...lets be honest, it really doesnt) have my name on it. I'll be spending two days in Bardstown and hoping to score at Buffalo Trace and a few others while I'm there.

How's the trip treating you Mike? To say I'm jealous would be an understatement. Cool

Anyone starting to see some of the fall releases of Elijah Craig Barrel Proof, or Larceny BP? These are the C921 versions.

I know Booker's should have one more release this year, possibly two. Also waiting on Stagg Jr. to hit the shelves here in Idaho, I know we have some in the warehouse, but they haven't sent it into the wild yet.

I did manage to score a Russell's Reserve 13 last week, haven't had a chance to try it. I much prefer the Rare Breed over the Russell's 10yr.

Great score on the RR 13. Lots of talk locally, but I have not seen any.

On the Cincinnati Bourbon Society page there is a guy who scored a case of 6 at a local grocery store.

Trip was a lot of fun, second year in a row, probably going to make it a tradition. I ended up dipping 3 bottles of Makers Mark from "my barrel". Gold ticket tour was cool, not awfully different from the standard tour, but certainly smaller and more intimate.

This is the score from my trip up. Buffalo Trace was selling EH Taylor, which I love, so I purchase the maximum of one bottle...



And now the family pic.

Nice. Did you go out to Stitzel Weller?

B&B is a bit gimmicky but I like the product even if it's a tad overpriced.



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

I did. And I loved the tour and grounds. I agree, I dont think B&B is anything spectacular, it's also about $10 more at the distillery than my local liquor store, but it was a bourbon trip and by God I was buying bourbon!.

Thank you. It's one of my favorites. Unfortunately, the pricing and availability here is pretty wild.

See below for my dollar cost averaging of EH Taylor
Bottle 1: $79
Bottle 2: $55
Bottle 3: $43

Pricing seems to be getting better, but it takes a lot of effort to even FIND it, let alone get it at a price I can live with. I wouldn't go any higher than $65 on my next bottle.

For those interested in trying something new give this a shot. It comes in at $65-70 depending on the state. This is from some bourbon podcast geeks. And I will say it's darn good. Gasp it's a blended bourbon from three states.

Currently only in CO, GA, IL, KY, TN AND TX. I managed to grab my bottle in CO. Wish I grabbed a backup of this release.
