Guess what? I'm right on time for a change. All the suggestions I've received for the BOTM have been done, and I haven't received any new ones, so we're gonna revisit a BOTM from almost ten years ago. Basil Hayden's is this month's BOTM. There's been a little talk about this one on the site lately, so […]
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 […]
I bought a select bottling of Virginia Distillery Highland Malt, and my go to LS gave me a hold card for allocated bourbons that are on their way. I am pondering putting it in for a Stagg, Four Roses Limited Edition, or an Elijah Craig 23. Or something else? Any thoughts?
What is the prevailing wisdom on SB.com re: sourced brands? I ask because I liked the products High West was putting out there. It lost a lot of luster for me when I originally found that it was sourced. They're good at what they do but I hold them in much less esteem than I did. […]
This coming Thursday I will be flying home for a wedding and would like to bring three or four small boston round bottles of bourbon for some friends. Obviously they are not in retail packaging as I have opened the retail bottle and repoured into the boston round bottles. The bottles are 1oz sizes, but […]
For the first day of Fall, I am going to have my first pour of Cooper's Craft. Cheers! Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk

OK. I couldn't wait for a 'special occasion' to uncork the Wm. Heavenhill S.B. I grabbed at the HH Gift Shop last weekend. It's been crying out to my from the back shelf where it's been languishing. I just had to recuse it. After tasting it during the Connoisseur Tasting at the gift shop, I […]
Wondering if anybody on here (someone on here probably has to) knows anything about this particular brand. I believe this particular bottle pictured was bottled in the 1990's. It's clearly a Heaven Hill bottling. That "distilled and bottled in Kentucky" neck tag is a dead ringer for the JTS Brown neck. And the 12 year […]
The Va ABC has set up a placeholder on their website for what I assume is a new product from Heaven Hill: https://www.abc.virginia.gov/products/bourbon/heaven-hill-american-whiskey-tasting-experience#/product?productSize=0 I don't know if they've offered a Heaven Hill product before but I'm curious if anyone has heard about this and if it's worth the $49.99 (500 ml).
Has anybody bought or even tried this one yet? I like the idea of ordering it directly from the company but $100 for MGP bourbon seems ridiculously high. Sure it's probably gimmicky but the original had quite a bit of history. I saw where barrels #1 and #2 have already sold out.
