On this day of the 147th running of the Kentucky Derby we are drinking a product of the official race sponsor Brown Forman and secondary race sponsor Old Forester. Last year due to the scheduling delay brought on by covid I was able to pair Woodford Reserve with the delayed Derby. This year, boy […]
Old Ingledew expected to bring 20,000 to 40,000 at auction. https://www.cnn.com/2021/04/26/us/oldest-whiskey-georgia-auction-trnd/index.html I guess if it's carbon dated at least the age is legitimate. Lord knows what it tastes like.
My father was born and raised in Kentucky. When cleaning out the house this bottle was found. The date on the seal is 1953. Not looking to sell but trying to find out the value of the bottle. It is in the original box as well.
Found in the shelves of local LB today! It wasn’t there yesterday! Clerk said it was a “covid distribution problems”….whatever that means. Just glad to see it back! $14.99 still! Going to celebrate by opening one of my bunkered bottles of this!
I'm on my second bottle of this stuff only recently having tried it. I don't have a lot of experience with the Barton juice aside from a couple rounds with VOB 80 and BIB, but I really don't remember much about either of them (I think it might have been the 80 proof VOB that […]

Okay, this is a stupid question, but my mind won't let it go today until I've satisfied my stupid curiosity. I've looked high and low today even searching the forums here. What does the "T" in George's middle name stand for? I've even found pictures of this man's headstone. I now know things about him […]

Pictured above; a typical Straightbourbon.com member. We’re all this good looking, and that’s no bullshit. We weren’t born like this either; it’s just a natural benefit of membership. The sooner you join us, the sooner it happens to you!
Between the two anybody have any experience, thoughts or opinions? I think they are about the same 90$ price point or so; I know the correct answer is 'buy both and let us know'… But, I might lean towards the Weller- based on past performance Your thoughts?
Has anyone tried this yet? I've seen it floating around the forums but it seems to be readily available here. I understand the irony of the KCSiB that were 15yrs or older for half the cost but am curious nonetheless. Thoughts?
Anyone tried these yet? A LS owner offered me one, and asked which version I’d want. I know there are 3 different proofs, but haven’t paid close attention to whether or not there was a consensus opinion on preference between them?
