    Re: BOTM 8/11: Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve

    Personally, I prefer the Booker's over the KCSB, but the preference is slight. I've tasted the two along with Baker's head to head (to head) and found that the similarities among them really...

    Re: Bourbon in Toronto, Canada

    Not strictly in Toronto, but close by, I thought I might use this thread to announce an upcoming event.

    After a fantastic evening last year, Quatrefoil Restaurant of Dundas, Ontario, will again be...

    Re: Bourbon in Toronto, Canada

    I'm wondering the same thing. Considering previous reviews, at $45 it strikes me as relatively poor value, given the prices on Buffalo Trace, Sazerac, Rittenhouse, and the two Four Roses bottlings at...

    Re: Bourbon in Toronto, Canada

    I've tasted all but the 4R Yellow Label and the Blanton's Original (though I did have the Blanton's Special Reserve when it was last here). I'd be curious to try both; I'd also pick up the 4R small...

    Re: BOTM 8/11: Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve

    Actually, there are at least a few single barrel bourbons on the market without any obvious barrel info (e.g., Eagle Rare 10 SB, Elmer T Lee). I'm fairly confident that KCSB is in fact a single...

    Re: BOTM 8/11: Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve

    Not according to our very own Whiskey Tree. Baker's, Booker's, and Knob Creek all share the same basic (lower rye) Beam mash bill; of the four "small batch" bourbons, only Basil Hayden's has a...

    Re: BOTM 8/11: Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve

    I like my bottle of KCSB, though I'm not in love with it. It's straight-up Beam in the end, which is fine by me, though it plays a slightly different note to the other two Small Batch bottlings that...

    Aaaaaaaaaand now they're back in the system, too. :lol:

    I'm guessing your photo was taken at Summerhill? That's the only location listed as stocking them so far.

    Re: Bourbon in Toronto, Canada

    Huh. Yes, that's very odd. They don't appear in the May 28th catalogue, so I don't know what to make of this, either. Perhaps we need to contact the LCBO directly and ask somebody?

    Re: Notes from the Journey

    I dunno about the Rittenhouse for that purpose. It's a tasty drink, but it really tastes to me and a few others like a high rye bourbon rather than a rye per se. You might sooner try the Sazerac, Van...

    Re: Bourbon in Toronto, Canada

    Ah, that explains it.



    Light years ahead of BT, eh? Well that's interesting. Blanton's uses Buffalo Trace's low corn mash bill and is single barrel (the original single barrel, for that...

    Re: Bourbon in Toronto, Canada

    Excellent. I saw signs of it coming out this way, and have found inventory for two stores so far, but am wondering if and when we'll see more. I swung by my local LCBO today and found nada.

    I think squire means releases from Buffalo Trace/Sazerac, Heaven Hill, Beam, etc. Eagle Rare and Elmer T Lee are both produced by Buffalo Trace, as are the Wellers, and Evan Williams Single Barrel is...

    Buffalo has a nice selection, and you can find a lot of good choices below the $50 mark. I'd recommend the Eagle Rare 10 Single Barrel, as...

    Generally speaking, there aren't many high proof Canadian whiskies available in the domestic market, though WhistlePig (currently US market only) is 50% ABV Canadian rye. Some Canadian whiskies are...

    Re: Bourbon in Toronto, Canada

    I've heard nothing but good things about Allen's, so you should definitely give it a try.

    As a side note, Eagle Rare is being re-released to the LCBO in two weeks, if that strikes your fancy.

    Welcome to Ontario, a land of plenty—aside from bourbon, of course. That said, there are a few bourbon lovers about; you just have to seek them out, and SB is a good place to start. I...

    A Quick Hello from Hamilton, Ontario

    Hi SB folks,

    As a new member, I thought I'd say a quick "hello" from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. This year, I've taken the plunge into whiskey in a major way, and bourbon is tops on my list. I look...
