Welcome to 2018! We're back to begin a new year. This one was the BOTM way back in 2005, and also just four years ago, but I thought we'd revisit it since it has come up again in some recent posts. I know firsthand, and from some of the pics posted that this one has gone through many bottle and/or label […]
Not really bourbon history but definitely related I think. I went to Tavern Wine and Spirits in Charleston, SC yesterday and they claim to be the oldest liquor store in the country. It is a very small store of two rooms and is packed with great bottles. Prices are obviously geared toward the tourist crowd […]
Good Day Ladies and Gentlemen! I have a bit of a mystery here. I found this bottle of bourbon in the back of a cabinet in my basement. I cannot find any information on it at all aside from the tax stamp that indicates that it was bottled in the […]
I guess the title of this post is a bit misleading. I ask whats new in Dallas because in my search for info most of the posts I found were several years old. For clarification I have never been to Dallas other than many connecting flights at DFW. I will be in Dallas for a few days […]
I was in a LS this morning and found a couple bottles of WTRB with an older style labeling. The neck tag said it was batch WT-03RB @ 108.2 proof. I tried doing some research to figure out how old these bottles are but I can really figure it out. I found many reviews of […]

Has anybody tried it yet? I've read that it's 8 year MGP, barrel proof, a mashbill of 75% corn, 21% rye, and 4% malted barley, and a blend of 20 casks of bourbon distilled in 2009 and bottled in 2017 by PM Spirits of Brooklyn, NY. The few reviews I have read have given it rather high […]
Looks like there are two coming out this year.. a 14 yr double oaked 97 proof and a 110 proof double oaked (this one only available at the gift shop). Based on past years.. Can anyone provide some guidance on how to get these offerings .. ie what days/months will it be avail at gift shop and […]
I was fortunate enough to try at least a pour of every LE I can think of except for the ORVW 25 and Michter's 25 this year. WLW and Stagg never disappoint,!but Al Young would have to be my 2017 fav. What was yours?
Anyone cracked one of these? Apparently they did private barrels for 25 stores around the country. Trying to decide whether or not to snag one...normally not a Wathen's fan but I'm curious about this release.
