  • BOTM 11/17: Pikesville Rye November 3, 2017
    Better late than never.   I've been gleaning the site for a while now trying to come up with this months BOTM. I finally decided to go with Pikesville Rye after seeing it mentioned a few times recently.   Although I've tried, for whatever reason, I just can't seem to get into ryes much. Over the years I've […]

History

  • Schenley Fairfield Kentucky Plant September 28, 2017
    Can anyone tell me the location of the old Schenley Fairfield Ky distillery or if there is anything left to see? I know at one point it was moved to Bardstown off Bloomfield Rd by the rail road tracks but was still called the Fairfield Distillery.

  • What's on your list of bourbons to buy? November 20, 2017
    Hey all!   Not sure if this has been a thread before, but I think it would be interesting to list off the bourbons you all are planning on buying next.    I think it would also be interesting to read the thought process behind why you haven't bought this in the past and why […]

  • Old posters November 20, 2017
    Every now and then i end up reading a thread from 2006 or some other long forgotten year. Tonite an internet search for OC12 brought me to an old SB.com thread. None of the posters seem to be here any longer. Do they get tired of this stuff? Do they move on to Rum or […]

  • Jefferson's Presidential 16 year November 19, 2017
    $200 list price.  Wonder if it will be like the 17 and 18 year old Jefferson's of old.   https://www.bourbonbanter.com/drink/drink-reviews/bourbon-reviews/jeffersons-presidential-select-16-year-old-review/#.WhF7sORe59A    
  • SAOS 10, MGP mash bill same as Belle Meade November 16, 2017
    I try to be disciplined with my buying. Initially, I bought a bottle if the store guy suggested it, I’d seen a random review on twitter, or just felt I ‘had to have a xx’ on the shelf. This left me with a lot of bottles I wasn’t happy with. Finally, I sorted through it […]
  • Four Roses Limited Edition Small Batch 2016 November 2, 2017
    Just returned from a trip to the UK and France and this bottle is on the shelf all over the place, I bought a bottle as I enjoyed the first one, but was wondering if anyone had any thoughts as why its still readily available in Europe a year after it disappeared off shelves (at […]
  • Knob Creek Single Barrel Question October 30, 2017
    On Knob Creek Single Barrel Store Pick bottles, there are sometimes side stickers that indicate extra age as compared to the unchanging nine year front label. I noticed some stickers also denote that the bottles have entry proofs well above the front stated 120. My question is, are they simply stating the entry proof and […]
  • Michter's 25 year old "Limited Edition" Bourbon October 26, 2017
    I've been told there will only be 500 - 700 of these released in the months of November and December 2017.  Then, I was told that only 18 were released for the entire area between the tip of Long Island (Montauk) and the outskirts of Westchester.  The 2012 20 year old was followed by a […]
