    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.

    I don't have access to nearly as much as some of you closer to better shops, etc., but this is the best bourbon I've ever had. This is classic bourbon, as elegant as they come, and I've tried most of the BTAC at least once, all of the Pappy's, etc. I bought one of these from one store, tried it...afterwards I tried to get the 2 I left behind, and they were gone. I found another store that had 2 more, and I bought them both. I cracked one of them earlier this year just to see if it was up to standard of the 1st one, and it was!
