    Re: The Parker Beam promise of hope

    Somehow it escaped my attention until now that the label lists this as a "single barrel" bourbon but it is apparently like ETL in that there is no way to identify which barrel each bottle is from. Which seems a bit surprising since I had thought this release was intended to be consistent across the board to match Parker's preferred flavor profile. I have not noticed much difference from one bottle to the next but then again I have no idea whether I have had bottles from the same barrel or if they are all different.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    That, and the >$110 shelf price is the only thing keeping my wallet pocketed here. Had a tasty store sample, tho.

    The first time I found a bottle in the Minneapolis area (spring 2014) it was $100 and bought two, finished one. I recently found another bottle for $89, so I bought it. Very balanced bourbon. But I'm not in a hurry to open the 2 bottles I have.

    It's damn good. Worth the price? Maybe not. But whenever I have people try it blind they really enjoy it. Never the best in a tasting but always well liked.
