    Bourbon of the Year?

    I know we have the Bourbon of the Month but do we have a Bourbon of the Year?


    My apologies in advance if we do. I've tried search but with no luck.

    A simple poll would be easy to do. People should post nominations. At the very least, everyone could post their top 5 or 10 from the year!

    Hey if Hitler, Stalin or Putin can be named Time Magazine's person of year, Black Bourbon can be Whiskey of the year.

    Re: Bourbon of the Year?

    Assuming we're talking about items available in retail, my vote is for ECBP. Batch 1 is the only one I've tried, but I can't think of anything else I've had that I liked more (including FR125, which was pretty damn good!) It just blew me away. Everything that was close was nearly 2x the price.

    ECBP
    4R 125th Single Barrel
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    The first thing that popped in to my head was PHC7 PoH, I really liked that stuff.

    Tough to argue against ECBP, especially considering the value. I wouldn't be surprised to see AECS win just based on reading what others have had to say about it.

    I think if I had to pick my personal favorite bottle that I've purchased, it be the FRSB Private Selection OBSK recipe.

    So many good choices!
