Welcome fellow Badger! Glad you dove in. As for your "hundred fruitless dusty hunts," I can only offer my apologies.
Current Signature is a solid enough Bourbon, IMHO. Nothing more, nothing less. While I didn't feel ripped off, there wasn't enough distinctiveness to make me drop $25 on another bottle.
My first experience was at 2011 Whiskey Fest Chicago. I was with another Bourbon nut, and very early on, right after we tasted thru the whole Van Winkle table, we hit the Jefferson's table. Trey was...
I actually had the bottle in my hand yesterday, but the town of "Clermont" on the label kept me from taking it to the check-out.:lol:
I was wondering where you were.
You said it tastes amazing, so you certainly should have opened the bottle. I open every dusty I get my hands on.
I need to preface this by saying that I just received my bottle today, and I expect changes after it has been opened.
Lots of cinnamon and Red Hots, but lacking the creamy mouthfeel I expect from...
Well, Bernheim is about 51% Wheat, and the only "Straight" Wheat whiskey that I know of on the market. It tastes more of Wheat than a Wheater, which shows off more of the corn, rather than the wheat....
If your Basil Hayden 8yr is DSP-16, PM me right away. I can drink it on my bridge in Brooklyn.
There's nothing more toxic than a Pappy thread.
But she did get some genuine help on post #5 as well a couple others. This frees us up to make snarky comments.:lol: I mean, come on, it's just another typical friggin' Pappy thread.
Your hubby wants Pappy? Buy him some Larue. It's all BT anyway.:lol::skep::rolleyes:
Welcome neighbor! I would suggest trying OWA and OGD 114. Both may be had for under $25 at the Men. Falls Otto's. Also, if you find yourself at Ray's or Discount, pick up an Old Ezra 7yr 101 for...
Whenever I taste the current version, I'm always shocked that it's a 10yr. Drinks more like a simple 5 year with maybe a couple ounces of a 10yr thrown in for seasoning.
In my state, Rye and 15yr are the rarest of the rare. You never see them on shelves anymore, and if you have not already made relationships with retailers, forget about it.
Age statement comparisons aside, I find it from between $60 and $70, and that's a fair price, IMHO.
FWIW, there are many a great tasters on this board who love this particular whiskey, and who are also not swayed by the Van Winkle name. We can debate the merits of the Van Winkle Wheaters until...
I'm a bit shocked by how quiet this month's thread is, considering what it is. Maybe Joe's warning scared everyone away?:lol:
Chuck has said that's BT's intention, but for me there's not enough continuity in the releases for that parallel to work. Given the huge swings in style for the CEHT bottlings, I tend to put it in...
Man, what a Whiskey. It's marries the minty/spice of young rye with the warm vanilla/oak of elder Rye, but then it adds a fat sweetness, the likes of which I just don't get on other Ryes. I love...
Skol vodka and caramel coloring.
I'd call ahead. I think Mat must have been here right after a Ritt shipment.
Welcome, fellow badger!
Hello Milwaukee! Welcome. And just so you know, the bigger Sendik's chain is still running the FR Small Batch at $19.99, which seems crazy low to me. I'm on my third bottle.:cool:
