    Re: What bourbon are you drinking in Australia? - Winter 2013

    I'm a big fan of the Johnny Drum and the private stock 15 yr is a good one.

    Currently working through my Makers 46 and an old Heaven Hill white label.
    Them good old boys were drinking whisky and rye...

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking in Australia? - Winter 2013

    It's been a few years since I last had it, so at a bar tonight I had a pour of Bulleit over ice and was pleasantly surprised! I might have to buy another bottle if it's this good now

    I also revisited it a while back with surprise, it is a daily go to pour for one of my mates and he impressed on me it was better than I thought. Still need to try the rye they've brought out too.

    It is no secret that I love that elixir of the gods, bourbon.

    Hey Cam was it at that new whiskey bar in West End you had it?

    Hey Tym, it was at my work teams favourite burger place - Yardbird Ale House in the Valley off Brunswick St. I'm definitely keen to try Cobbler in West End soon (is that the new bar you meant?), so if you're up for a couple of pours at some point let me know and we might be able to meet up.

    enjoyed a couple of Berheim pours last night myself! Really surprised at how smooth it was for a 90proof. Might have to try this Sneads place you guys refer to. Also revisited Bulliet last week and enjoyed my 1st pour, then went to his richer cousin, man that Bulliet rye is a well balanced drop. If any of you guys make your way to SA, give me a yell

    Been getting through a bottle of Bulleit I've had for a few years. My last couple of drinks had me thinking meh. Ok mixer though I'd much prefer Evan Williams Black both straight and mixed.

    Damn and I just came back from a week long work trip to Adelaide
    Not all is lost as I was a relatively good boy and saved most of my per diem by avoiding bars and fancy eateries - as a result I was able to easily justify the purchase of a 2009 WT Tradition 14yr - the packaging is really impressive, I might admire it a little longer before I turn all christmas morning psycho on it!

    The Tradition is a great bourbon - enjoy!!

    I started with Wild Turkey American Spirit 15yr, moved to Jefferson's Reserve 15yo, now about to tuck into home made pizza with Old Forester Birthday Bourbon 2009...
