Welcome Spring...I have big bourbon plans for this next 3 months! I started by grabbing a bottle of WTRB from 1999. :)

Today??? Nothing.......No Sunday sales in MN. Or holidays. Or later than 8 on weekdays. That is one of the things I miss about IL, reasonable hours of purchasing. And Binny's. Thankfully my folks still reside there. Love the run home to see them and get some shopping done.

Many fond holiday memories with the family guys and gals making a run out. :grin:

PHC first edition, 127.4 proof. Since I've only had the 2010, I'm looking forward to seeing if I get any of the wheated impression some others have had with this one.

I don't know about the 127.4, but the 122.6 PHC first edition is wonderful.

Good find.

I haven't enjoyed the PHC nearly as much as others on this board. I did a side by side with the '10 BTAC WLW and preferred the Weller hands down. I still have two other bottles bunkered that may end up getting traded away.

I'm not saying it is bad by any stretch, but it is not nearly my favorite wheater.

Grand Dad was followed by Knob Creek SB which has some very attractive notes on the nose that are completely overwhelmed by the alcohol.

Four Roses Limited Edition SmB - for the bunker.

Noah's Mill - first time purchase.

Open and taste the FR SmB LE, as you will love it. I assume 2010? One of the few Bourbons that I add just a touch of water to. It really brings out the richness for me.

(Just want to note that reading Josh and Oscar's comments on FR made me explore that distillery, and it was well worth it!!!:cool: :cool:)

You will love the Noah's Mill. It's one of my fav's.

I was surprised by the "in your face" alcohol of Noah's Mill. To my taste, it is a very unique bourbon...not quite like anything I've tasted before. For its proof (just over 114), I was expecting something more like OGD 114, not in flavor profile but in the upfront alcohol. I did enjoy it, but I think it needs to open up (and calm down) slightly for me!

White Dog, I do have one FR SmB LE open and enjoy it very much...that led to this new addition to the bunker.

I ended up adding two PHC 10 YO Wheaters to the bunker today as well (I currently have one open and enjoy it very much also).

i found some sales the other day, so thats what i went with. i picked up the a handle of OG BiB, and a fifth of the Four Roses Yellow.

also found the Rogue whiskey. havent tasted it yet, and i dont hold out a lot of hope. just figured it would be a talking point with some friends who really like their beers.

Did you go to Tower on Piedmont? I was there last night - they had three PHC 2010 and I had all three in hand - at the end I put one back and took two home. I thought about the Golden Anniversary also....they have two of them, so I hope you leave one for me! haha

Jack, thanks for leaving that last 2010 at Tower!

The wife would shoot me for spending $150 for a bottle of bourbon, but since the State of Georgia was kind enough to return all the taxes I paid them last year I think I deserve a little treat; I'll make sure to leave a Golden Anniversary for you.

At the risk of pissing Drew off I will bet dollars to doughnuts that Noah's Mill is Evan Williams BIB at barrel strength.

Not sure if I buy this... the Noah's is a 114 range proofer and IMO clearly exhibits far more age and complexity than the EW BIB (which is a favorite of mine). I suspect NM is a blend of several whiskeys..

I was thinking the same thing. The 13th is prepped for the draining at a friend's dinner party tonight. 13 is the perfect amount to buy, you can drink one, and still bunker a case.

Passed on 4 of the Thomas Handy Sazerac. Is this the least desired of the BTAC because I never see any of the others in stock but this one is always there hanging?

It seems like it, but I beg to differ. I put the Handy above the ER17 and Saz18. I just don't like most of the low proof juice, especially not for 50 bucks a bottle.

I absolutely agree. For the high proof, honey barrel quality, I think that Handy is one heck of a buy.

Fullbuck
03-24-2011, 16:08
The Handy I saw today was $67 at both locations. Is that a fair or comprable price to what you see in your area. I wanted to get some Stagg, but I may go back and get one of these to try.

roostercogburn
03-24-2011, 21:20
While I like the Saz 18 very much, I can't understand why Handy hangs around. It's a wonderful rye with a much more complex flavor palate than most ryes today. Maybe those who follow the BTAC collection in passing are turned away by the young age?

I think this is the case. 'They' know BTAC is good, and they know age statements are good, but that's about it. You will impress your friends a lot more with 17 or 18 year old whiskey, than with high proof.

Nabbed a pair of RR101 at the local Hen House grocery store. They were doing a reset and found them in the back storeroom. There was no price on the shelf, so the manager offered them at $24 each.

This is probably the most unlikely score I've ever made.

That deserves a "congrats"!!

By the time I focused my attention on bourbon and started crossing state lines for the cause, the 101 was long gone - not even sure if it was ever available in my state. But the RR90 was one of my first "neat" pours. As a noob, discovering all the slightly negative comparisons to the old 101 here at SB made me feel like I had missed something and that I was in the minority for actually liking the 90. Oh well, I'm a bourbon big boy now so I finished off my first 90 and bought another.

Not today, but yesterday: purchased/traded for 1-1/2 bottles (the storeowner got the other half) of the Colonel E.H. Taylor "Old Fashioned Sour Mash", which will make an appearance on a Bardstown table soon enough.
Mostly, it reminded me of the standard bottlings of the '50s through '70s (e.g., pre-metric era) in flavor. It is good and, as a one-off, historic in its 'natural souring' provenance. It shall not pass this way again (similar to the WR sweet mash from a couple of years ago) and, in that, I'm glad I've tasted it.

Gillman
03-28-2011, 03:29
Thanks for that, Tim.

I must have missed this earlier, in what way was the sour mashing accomplished for this bourbon, how is it different than the current methods of adding backset to the cooker?

03-28-2011, 05:10
Okay thanks Scott. It looks like a partial adaptation of the small tub method of mashing. As Chuck said, in the 1800's heated mash was prepared in a series of small barrels (tubs), and the mash was allowed to rest overnight and longer I believe until it was ready for fermentation.

I've seen lots of different minis in KY, but not in Ahia. They come in handy for new stuff that you want to try without committing to a longer term deal. The first Bookers I bought was a 50ml.

I've alway preferred Rowan's Creek to Noah's Mill. If you haven't tried you should pick up a bottle. It used to be a 12 year old but now it is NAS. I haven't noticed too much of a change. Rowan's should run you in the low 30s.

Same as Tom.....a bottle of Angel's Envy. And rightfully named! Instant fan. Lots of vanilla on the nose and palate. The port finish is divine. An outstanding bourbon. And what a great price! I was disappointed we could only get one each.

Wes (who was thrilled we made the trip all the way from Indy) was gracious enough to give Tom, Dale, and I a small pour of the cask strength straight from the port barrel. REALLY looking forward to it's future release. What a fantastic dram.

A lot of it has to do with liquor laws in the state. In the end it just comes down to spending the time and taking a look.

Was at the store getting groceries and swung through the liquor section and got a EC 12 year old, then noticed they had some more BTAC behind the counter, so I grabbed another WLW and a Handy. It is nice that my favorite grocery also has the best bourbon selection in town, camouflages bourbon purchases that way, but not enough to hide that Pappy 23 they have.

I too was in the nashville area for the East Nashville Brew festival this weekend. Hit a couple of stores. Passed on 2 bottles of Col. EH Taylor, a 2009 Handy, ER17, some masters collection, and a couple of other premium bottlings. Didn't feel like spending more than $30 on a bottle so I grabbed the Weller 12 and went on my way.

You had a pretty good couple of days, Ryan!

Yea, and actually got 4 PVW15, 4 PVW20, 2 ORVW 107, 3 ORVW 90, and 2 more EH Taylors today. I had to do a decent amount of traveling to get what I got but I just started seriously getting into bourbon in the past 4 months so I figured I'm already pretty far behind so I have to play catch up.:grin:


Better buy more now because there ain't no more coming.
Old Rip 15/107 takes it place this Autumn.

Are you sure this is the case? I know they said this is the last year for the 20 but they didnt say it was the last season so I assumed that the Fall release would be the end of the 20. I also kinda just assumed they would end the 15 at the same time though I never saw them say so specifically. If so this makes me sad, I was hoping to have 1 more release to bunker up for Pappy Armageddon.

Nothing has been made official, but there has been talk that this release was the last for the Pappy 15 and next year would be the last for the Pappy 20.

I personally am excited for the possibility of new Old Rip, both the 15 and what will hopefully be an older expression to take the place of Pappy20! Other than I'll now have to go through my bunker and mark all of my older ORVW15s so I know they're original issue SW. Seriously though, who wouldn't be excited for a 107 proof 15 year wheater from any distillery and if they do replace the pappy 20 with something of similar age, how cool would that be?! Just as long as it isn't 90 proof!!

As far as when the last year for the 20 is...this is the question and answer from their FB page.

"Are the current PVW 20 & 23 all S-W bourbon or is it a blend with BT? When can we expect the remaining S-W stock to run out"?

Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery (http://www.facebook.com/oldripvanwinkle) All 20 & 23 year old Pappy is still S-W. This is the last year of the 20yr.


I took this to mean that the fall release would be the last for the 20. I hadn't heard anything on the 15 for sure other than seeing the post where Julian stated he bottled several years worth but of course that has to be nearly gone if not completely gone at this point. I guess I was just assuming/hoping that they would have some more 15 for a Fall release since they never stated specifically that it would be end of the "Pappy 15" brand after this release.

I am definitely excited though to see what they put out w/ their BT stock. I am just a bit disappointed at the same time that I only just found out about them and how amazing their current bourbon is with so little time left to enjoy it. Which is also why Im doing whatever I can to bunker a lot of it so I can get some years in down the road with it still.

Old Forest Signature and Weller 12. Had to put some everyday pours on the shelf to preserve the PVW15 and ND bottles I kept hitting.

And it's another reminder why bourbon is the best whiskey in the world: two very fine bottles that were both less than $20 (before tax anyway).

RE (new) ORVW 15: one of the best things about this release is the possibility of larger releases. Maybe we wont have to run around like maniacs to get some.

A day in the life of an Ohio bourbon lover found me calling one store and visiting another where I had purchased Saz Jr. before. Struck out on both.

This led me to another store where I have been waiting for over 2 weeks for 4RYellow to show up. Nothing.

I ended up walking out of there with a ER 10/90 after staring at WTRB for a moment.

Ahh well, the Sampler is at the end of the month and I'll just have to stock up on some items then.

Today I decided to add to the bunker with the following:
2 Buffalo Trace
2 Old Charter 8
2 Eagle Rare 10
1 Old Overholt
2 Blanton's
1 Bakers 7

Not a bad day for me.

Old Crow Reserve. The price was right for us unemployed folk that only makes a little money from his lapidary (gemstone cutting) business. Tastes pretty good too.

Still waiting on CT's Pappy allotment. We aren't seeing any 20 yr. I just want to score 4 or more 15 yr and then I will relax.

I too welcome the ORVW 15. I'm banking that it will be very good. Also hopefully more available. I am getting sick of making 20+ calls to maybe secure one bottle.

Hear hear!
That is why I don't buy Pappy 20yo, $120.00 for a great whiskey watered down to 90 proof sucks.
I have had Pappy barrel proof and it's a damn shame Julian waters it down so much.
But Julian says it taste best that way, and from what I heard him say on the BT Oral History he adds even more water to what ever he is drinking from the bottle, it's his personal favorite way to drink it.

I scored 3 more Pappy 15yo and another Old Rip 10/107 today.
Two of those Pappy's will go to a couple of guys that live in a Pappy wasteland who can't get it.
They know who they are.:grin:

You didn't pick these up in the mitten, did you? My 2 sources stated they haven't gotten their shipments in yet.

The store with the best bourbon selection in town just happens to be the grocery store I usually go to......Makes too easy to slip in a bottle or two without the boss noticing

1 Buffalo Trace single barrel selected for the store
1 Four Roses Yellow (for the wife's mixers)
1 Old Weller Antique 107


Talked with the liquor manager a bit and told him what I was looking for, said he would check with the distributor and see if any was available.

Was just about to order Abraham Bowman Virginia LE from Party Source but they just sold out. Kinda pissed. The last of it went freaking quick. :hot: i know my fault for waiting.


Anyone know if this barrel strength will be done again?

This was a PS only bottling, right? So I won't be able to find it anywhere else?

^^^ this is what pissed me off. I mean great for you, really that's a great haul. But this guy is pulling in more Pappy 15 then the whole state of CT will probably see. It's just BS.

whatever, im grumpy from being on call for work all night long, and I still have to come in today.
