After a one month break we are back with a new BOTM. It's been 6 years since we last discussed this and I thought it would be appropriate to bring it back on this day for the running of the delayed Kentucky Derby since WR is the presenting sponsor of the Derby. Woodford is […]
From Fawn Weaver, the CEO and founder of Uncle Nearest Whiskey. Thought it was worth sharing: "Hey @jackdaniels_us, how about you guys bring this early 1900s bottle back? I understand from your historian that it’s the only Jack Daniel’s bottle to contain both his name and picture. I’ve been trying to get my hand on […]
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 […]
Is there a discussion comparing the major and midsize distillery production volume and rickhouse capacities? I was thinking of how much larger Beam and WT must be to consistently bottle oceans full of significantly aged bourbon (not to mention extra aged store picks). These two in my mind have got to be at the top of […]
I searched to see if this thread already existed. If it does I apologize but I couldn’t find it. I travel a lot for work. As I pass through spots I like to check out a good bar with a decent bourbon selection. I think a thread with recommendations and prices per pour would be […]
How do you organize your stash? By Distillery, by name, by price point, by what you like best or most often drink? I don't have hundreds of bottles, but today I bought a metal cabinet, instead of storing the juice in a wooden cabinet. A little more fire resistant but nothing like a $1000 […]
Anybody have any recipes for doctoring a store-bought unaged 'bourbons' (BT mash or HH's white dog, eg) at home in a mason jar or some such? Not talking about home aging in a small barrel, but more interested in flavoring. Considering something with vanilla bean and / or cinnamon sticks to sit until the holidays […]

So I don’t think I’ve seen much chatter about this year’s PHC yet. If someone else already started a thread on it, mods certainly merge this with it or whatever. 10 years, #5 char, 120 proof, NCF. I can’t really think of another release that aligns well with those stats for anything to project […]
I saw this down at a local. I haven't seen much about it, a couple reviews online seem to think it's pretty good. It contains some young brown rice whisky, some high rye af 5-6 years old and some straight bourbon at 7 years. Seems interesting but it is over the 100$ price […]
It looks like media samples of this year's Four Roses LE SmB have gone out. 19yr OBSK, 12yr OBSV, 16yr OESK, and 12yr OESV is the blend. I didn't see the proof. This sounds awesome to me and very excited to get a hold of it. Unfortunately the hype is probably going to be high […]
So far I've seen it at Costco ($50), a local grocery ($60) and fosmith here bought a bottle. All three are store picks, I think. From what I read so far, they all look to be store picks. I had a friend buy the Costco pick for me, but she's out of town for a bit, so […]
