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 - […]
It's interesting what a walk down memory lane moving one's collection can be. Pictured are what remains of the six samples I had from the PVW23 barrel selections (2) we made back in 2007. I consumed my (750ml) bottles long ago, but I haven't the courage to finish these off; something about posterity, no doubt. The bottles […]
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 […]
The last thing I need to be doing is buying another bottle of bourbon but... Given the occasion and the fact that America basically perfected whiskey (among so many other things), a special Independence Day bottle seems to be in order. I'm torn between the Booker's Backyard BBQ or the Elijah Craig A120. One of […]
I picked up Beam's unfiltered Old Tub BIB for $22 and it tasted rather familiar. Just so happened to have Jim Beam Bonded on hand (same price) for comparison. Both are assumed to be four years old since the labels do not state otherwise My iron pallette tells me they are pretty much identical. I was hoping the […]
Hey guys. Newbie to this site and sent here by one of my fellow club members. I've batted 2 of my old dusty 375 bottles into a 750 and would love to find out what the mash bills are for each. The Old Grand Dad is a 2003 and the Old Taylor is a 1995. […]
I was recently sent an advanced sample of a soon to be released Texas Straight Bourbon (2 yrs old) from Still Austin to provide thoughts/feedback. Once they announce it, I'll be happy to post some tasting notes here - but wanted to see what folks thought of their process (and also was hoping that @WhiskeyBlender might […]
A month back I spotted that new bottles of Johnny Drum bourbon that now said Distilled by Willett. This should mean it's their distilled bourbon as compared to prior versions which said Bottled by and were sourced. Today, I saw new versions of Rowan's Creek and Willett Pot Still that both clearly show Distilled […]

Got to try this today. My store got ONE bottle of it so the owner did the only logical thing (well second logical thing. The first logical thing would be to sell it to me! ) and opened it up to let good customers (and his spirits consultant of course!) Get a chance to at […]
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 […]
