Sorry to be late for this month's selection! I was out of town at the beginning of the month visiting family in lovely Santa Fe. For this month we are going back to Old Forester but with a variation of their's we haven't done yet. You all know how much I love Old Fo […]
Interesting article about Pennsylvania rye. Clay Risen author. It’s behind a paywall but one can easily get past without paying. NYT allows a certain # free articles per month. https://www.nytimes.com/2022/06/02/dining/drinks/rye-whiskey-pennsylvania.html
As someone among many here in similar situations, who has a decent amount of unopened bottles bunkered, I write to discuss strategies and efforts to resist purchasing bourbon. I try to tell myself that it is all just more "brown liquid" which I don't need. I know I have more than enough to last me […]
Did you find typographical errors in your copy? I'm about 40% through and the inset on page 96 says "…medicinal whiskey efforts certainly played a ROLL…" when it should say "ROLE." And a sentence on page 109 has me baffled. Referring to voting in favor of modifying Prohibition, it quotes a Literary Digest article […]
They announced the recipe yesterday.. looks like its going to be quite a bit younger this year. Surprised by just how young. However there is the potential for greatness..the best MGP ive had was just under 9 years.
With the permission of the moderators, I am posting about my experience in selling my bourbons through Skinner auctions of Boston. Hopefully many members own some of the bottles I sold. This post gives the actual results of the auction as well as my net proceeds. I sold these bottles to help pay for a […]

Did my "due diligence" by looking at old threads before starting a new one. Old "Elijah Craig 18" thread was closed already. Anyone tried the "new" EC18 just released? I have 2 different bottles from this release – one bottled 6-15-21 from Barrel #5413 and one bottled 7-7-21 from Barrel #5431. Might make for […]
Hi all, Have a birthday coming up later next month while on a trip to Louisville and thought it would be kinda cool to grab a bottle of OFBB as a memento if the opportunity arises (obviously this would be at a retail store and only if the price isn't too exorbitant). I had […]
https://heavenhill.com/press-detail.php?postid=heaven-hill-distillery-launches-new-ultra-premium-heaven-hill-heritage-collection Not surprising but definitely cool to see that HH has older stocks like this. However, with KC adding back age statements and getting a 15yr for pretty much half price that's just slightly lower proof, I don't see the draw here. For $175, I think I'd bite, but $275 is too rich for […]
