This month we are revisiting an old favorite that we haven't talked about as BOTM for quite a long time. I call it an old favorite because it was mostly liked and appreciated as a quality bourbon at a price that made it a good value. It was certainly a regular for me. BIB - […]
I have 3 full decanter bottles from the early 1960's. 1. IW Walker 100 proof, 1955-1960 stamp intact 2. Old Fitzgerald Green Tournament Decanter, 1957-1963 stamp intact 3. Walker's Deluxe Bourbon, 8yr, stamp in place, but torn, no date but presumed prior to 1963 I am interested in valuations and if […]
A few months ago I brought a book up north with to read while I was on vacation with my family. It was Chucks Crowdery's Book "The Best Bourbon You'll Never Taste. The True Story Of A. H. Hirsch Reserve Straight Bourbon Whiskey, Distilled In The Spring Of 1974" So when I got to 84 of this […]
I’m sorry if this has been discussed already in the forum, but I don’t remember seeing anything about it. I was in my local LS today complaining about not seeing any FR picks anywhere lately. The manager said that all private barrel picks in AZ have been suspended for 1 year because someone from AZ […]
I had been drinking AA90, but I like this one even better! No doubt! Yes, I realize it has the dreaded "at least 36 Months" disclaimer (which they need to remove), but it really is very good! The key is that BT oily texture. Mmmm! I admit that my preference is Weller, but I can't get that, […]
For my birthday this week (no worries, I’m like fine wine) I received a really nice Waterford decanter. How in the hell do you decide which bourbon merits the decanter?! I thought it over for a day or so before electing to fill it with BT. My reasoning was that a) it wasn’t my only […]
This definitely meets the "Cost/Benefit Ratio." BT Mash Bill #2 (i.e., ETL, BSB, RHF, et al.). For $10, you can't beat it! Very Happy with this purchase!

Oh good, Peyton Manning has a new whiskey brand. $200 for what I’m assuming is Dickel juice? Not sure where else they’d get 13 year old TN bourbon. Sounds like a hard pass to me unless proven otherwise somehow. My apologies if this has already been discussed in another thread, as I certainly may have missed […]
I was considering putting in an order and was curious if there's a particular store that really stands out, especially for hand picked barrels of bourbon/rye/maybe TN whiskey and what you would order if it was your dollar. I was also looking at party source but they have a lot of private barrels and […]
Good evening, all. Ran across something odd, and wanted to see if anyone had any idea what might be going on here. I'm in Japan, and someone is selling a bottle of the 2019 Small Batch LE that's 56.6% ABV. Now, every bottle I've ever seen is 56.3, and I'm not aware that there's proof […]
This morning I picked up a couple of bottles of the latest Knob Creek single barrel selection made by the Hardin County Bourbon Club in conjunction with Packages and More in Elizabethtown. As you can see from the photos, it was barreled in January of 2004, selected in November of 2019 (15 yrs. 10 mos.) […]
