    Re: Top 5 Bourbons I've Had In The Last Year

    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

    Re: Top 5 Bourbons I've Had In The Last Year

    In no order:
    Basically a list of year favorites right?

    ECBP
    PVW 15
    Blanton's (store selection)
    Bowman's Millenium
    FR Single Barrel

    Would like to venture outside of some stock store bourbons in the coming year.

    Re: Top 5 Bourbons I've Had In The Last Year

    Ask me tomorrow and I might change my mind.

    VOF 62-70
    Rathskeller Rye
    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.

    Top 5 Bourbons I've Had In The Last Year

    I'm with yeti on the

    rathskeller
    Four roses 17 year obsv
    2012 small batch 4 roses

    Ill add
    William larue weller (any year)
    ECBP 16 GBS selection (only cause it took so long to get)

    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
