Our Bourbon Of The Month

  • BOTM 5/18: Early Times Bottled In Bond April 30, 2018
    We're back!    I was finally able to grab a couple of bottles of this, so this time around I have some notes.   The legs are medium, to slightly thick and take their time coming down the glass. The nose is a bit odd, but nothing off putting. I can pick up a bunch of things. At first smell there's […]

History

  • Whiskeydaddlers April 20, 2018
    http://whiskeydaddle.com/thenovel/   Doing some research into the Peoria area distillery history and ran into this.  Apologize if this is already out there, but I did not see anything when I searched. New piece of Distillery History for me.  Hope you feel the same. 
  • Old Crow Distillery April 10, 2018
    Vosgar, Gavin0791 and I went on a three day, whirlwind trip to the motherland. This was to participate in a barrel pick at BT, along with giving my nephew Mike, aka Galvin0791 an introduction to the bourbon world. We had a great time. Along with seeing the "new" at BT, we got to experience some of the […]

  • Trip in Tenn May 26, 2018
    In Tenn for the weekend near Clarksville area wonder about stores with good bourbon selections.  Any input from anyone?
  • Road trip from VA to NY May 23, 2018
    I’ve been reading posts here for a while now and appreciate the info and stories.    A friend and I are driving from VA to the US Open on Long Island in a few weeks.  I imagine we’ll stick to I95/NJ Turnpike. If we wanted to make a couple pit stops along the way, any […]
  • The sweetest you have had? May 22, 2018
    So what is the sweetest most caramel and vanilla tasting bourbon you have had? Not including any flavored whiskeys. Would George Dickel 12 be one? Thanks.
  • BOLO ALERT May 22, 2018
    There is a new Whiskey hitting the shelves over the next week or two. It is Woodford Reserve Straight Malt. With a mash bill of 51% Malted Barley, 47% Corn and 2% Rye it presents an interesting taste profile. I found it a bit drier than bourbon with chocolate, nuts, caramel, brown sugar and a touch of sweet […]

  • Old Forester Decanter May 25, 2018
    So i want to buy a couple of these but need some help from the other side of the pond.   https://imgur.com/a/p5B7Ov1   Was this decanter only released in the 60's ? What is the general value of the one shown in pic? I have a chance to buy up to 4 of them but […]
  • Difference in Elmer and Blantons May 18, 2018
    I know they are both single barrel of the BT #2 mashbill. Bourbonr says Blantons is 6-8 years and ETL is 12-14.    If those ages are correct, you would expect the MSRP's to be flipped. In NC they must be sold by MSRP and it was $39 for ETL yesterday and in the $50's […]
  • Wild Turkey Revival May 16, 2018
    Masters Keep Revival. 12-15 year old, 101 proof, finished in Oloroso sherry casks.    I’m in. Though I’d rather have 12-15 year old 101, hold the finish.

  • Four Roses Limited Edition April 29, 2018
    Yesterday I saw a 2017 Four Roses Limited Edition Small Batch for $179.99. I’m a big fan of the FRSB, but the FRSmB left something to be desired. All of the reviews that I’ve read have been glowing for the LE, but I’ve never come close to paying that much for a bourbon, and I’m very […]
