OK, I'll play, too.
My fav's since last summer are these:
Elijah Craig 12-year Barrel Proof
(Current issue of) Old Forester Birthday Bourbon
Ezra B Single Barrel (Luxco, NDP)
A (too-tiny) taste of Wild Turkey 12-year at the Gazebo in April
William Larue Weller from last fall
...and just because I can; I'll add one more: Henry McKenna Single Barrel 10-year BIB
In no order:
Basically a list of year favorites right?
Blanton's (store selection)
FR Single Barrel
Would like to venture outside of some stock store bourbons in the coming year.
Ask me tomorrow and I might change my mind.
JPS 18 unfiltered Single Barrel
Four Roses 17 year OBSV
Tie - 1970 Old Fitz Prime/1976 Yellowstone
Others that could easily make the list: Four Roses Jim Rutledge 40th, the amazing SB Blend at the sampler.
Good idea for a thread.

I will say that the year ain't over and there's at least 5 more killer bourbons coming out that I'm looking forward to. Gentlemen, we are truly blessed to have access to the whiskey that we do. The past looks really good. All those dusties you will maybe never taste, things your grandfather took for granted. But I have to tell you, the golden age of bourbon is RIGHT NOW! Amen
Oh I forgot. To yeti. Got this in the mail last week
"On a long enough timeline, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero"
Now that's one helluva impressive sight!
