Our Bourbon Of The Month

  • BOTM 7/17: Heaven Hill 6 year old Bottled In Bond July 4, 2017
    Happy 4th of July everyone!    Since there's been a number of posts and pics about this one recently, I figured it was a good time for this one to be the BOTM (by itself) again.    Many folks seek the perfect bourbon. Questions have been raised and opinions expressed here. Mine included. Well, there is, but isn't such […]

History

  • Historic Stash Discovered At New Jersey Museum July 18, 2017
    I searched and didn't see this mentioned anywhere yet but forgive me if it has been.   Museum workers uncovered a stash of Revolutionary era wine and Prohibition era bourbon & whiskey while doing some work in the basement/wine cellar of a historic home turned museum...   http://wjactv.com/news/offbeat/gallery-inside-the-secret-wine-stash-from-the-prohibition-discovered-by-museum-workers     Check out how dark some […]
  • Old Hickory Bourbon July 14, 2017
    I found this while gardening in the yard. Can anyone tell me what it is. I think it's a money clip. It's made out of brass.

  • New Early Times BIB bourbon July 23, 2017
    Has anyone seen this in the stores yet or tried it. It was supposed to be released sometime in July. If so what are your thoughts. Also if you know of a location near the Tennessee / Kentucky line that has it and could point me in the direction it would be appreciated.
  • What Bourbon Is This? July 21, 2017
    Ok, I rarely buy stuff I haven't heard of or researched . My local store just got only 2 of these in. We know nothing about it. Anyone have info.?
  • Preventing cork breakage July 18, 2017
    This weekend, while on the road, I stopped in to a small-town dive bar/LS. Very little on the shelf, but found 2 bottles of WTRB 108 proof for $36 each. When I reached my destination, I tried to open one, & the cork broke. I wasn't surprised because it had been on that shelf for […]
  • South Carolina whiskey festival July 16, 2017
    Since a couple of SC guys have talked about linking up, thought I'd drop this link off. Bought my ticket today. A friend that has been previously really enjoyed it. If any of y'all make it, let me know.    http://www.experiencewhiskey.com/#experience   mods, sorry if this is the wrong forum. Feel free to move if […]

  • Bragging bottle pics!!! July 6, 2017
    Just want to see what others have managed to get their hands on, so here's mine.....now show me yours!
  • 4R: it's a start (of a new obsession) July 5, 2017
    I'm sure many others have done it before me many times over.    3 down, 7 to go.      I'm still pretty new to bourbon and have tried a lot of bottles w/ out really having a plan or strategy to figure out what I like. A 100 proof four roses single barrel was […]
  • Orphan Barrel Archive : 6-Bottle Set ($1500 Retail) June 22, 2017
    Diageo's Orphan Barrel line doesn't get too much love on SB.com (although there are a few fans). This new offering of the Orphan Barrel Archive probably won't win over any converts, with the average per bottle price being $250 ($1500 for 6 bottles, retail price, released only in KY). That presentation box must be made […]
  • Parker's Heritage 11 (2017) June 18, 2017
    I was privileged to taste what will become this year's Parker's Heritage release while at the Kentucky Bourbon Affair the week before last. In my two years attending this event I've learned to sign up for whatever Heaven Hill offers because they really know how to bring it by putting a lot of thought into […]
  • Four Roses "Poison Girl" Single Barrel info June 3, 2017
    Does anyone have any good information on any watering holes around the country that still have this bottle available for pours?  I have always found this 19 year old private selection single barrel to be very interesting but have yet to see it available anywhere besides the secondary market which makes the price totally unjustifiable. Thanks […]
