    Re: Bourbon Finds

    I hit the jackpot today, landing possession of one bottle WT Tribute, a Black Maple Hill 16 (which I've never tried) and a bottle of Stagg. This was a wonderful trifecta!
    All bottles I'd give my right arm to locate - well done!! Enjoy

    Was that BMH bottled in Lawrenceburg or Bardstown? I have only tasted the Bardstown bottling and it is one of my favorites, though others have stated that the Lawrenceburg bottling is very good.

    The BMH 16 was bottled in Bardstown. I wasn't aware of a Lawrenceburg bottling. Wouldn't that imply that it wasn't distilled at Heaven Hill? What is the exact story behind BMH anyway?

    BMH bottled in Lawrenceberg is likely Stitzel Weller whiskey, bottled by Julian Van Winkle.

    Re: Bourbon Finds

    Yesterday I happened into a shop that had a bottle of I W Harper KSB 15 yo Gold Label($43) and a bottle of Classic cask 17yo.($59). I did not have the cash. Should I go back today. Has anyone tried either?

    Since the IW Harper is no longer available.....it may be your only chance to try it!

    Doc,
    Skip the 15 y/o Harper. It's a mild 40 proof bourbon leftover from the Heritage collection. But the 17-yr Classic Cask is among my personal favorites, exceptional stuff even if it's a bit overpriced at $59.

    Cheers,
    Omar

    Well, the Harper 15yo is increasingly rare -- part of the Bourbon Heritage Collection produced by United Distillers a dozen or so years ago -- but quite ordinary otherwise. The Classic Cask ryes, on the other hand, are generally pretty highly regarded. I was not aware of a 17yo.

    Well, that is one way of looking at it, but that's a lot of money to pay for a fairly ordinary whiskey.

    It is the hard one to find of the 5. I did know where some Dickel SB was to round that out, and one may or may not stumble upon the other 3 from United but they are still being produced, and it takes a keen eye to discern the difference.
