Our Bourbon Of The Month

  • BOTM 6/18: HANCOCK'S PRESIDENTIAL RESERVE June 2, 2018
    I'm only a day late, but that's better'n par for the course.  Yet again another revisit, although it's been a while. HPR was last the BOTM way back in February of 2009 to be exact. It started showing up (again) the last few months at a number of stores in my area. And FWIW, I recently finished a bottle.   Soooooo......   […]

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 […]

  • OF 90 Single Barrel Bottle July 7, 2018
    Saw this this weekend, is it new or older (or neither), I've only seen the standard round version of the single barrel previously (like the ones behind it or the statesman to the left). Internet led me to believe its circa 2013?

Premium Bourbon / Specialty Bottlings

  • 4R OBSV BS July 12, 2018
    Question, I'm looking for opinions on this scenario. If you were given a choice of a 4R OBSV barrel strength at 62.5% and 8 yrs, 11 months or an OBSV barrel strength of 51.7% and 11 years which would you choose, if given a choice of only one? One obviously from up high in the rickhouse and […]
  • PHC Orange Curacao Barrel Finish July 10, 2018
    I don't remember seeing a thread about this years PHC release, which to those who are not aware is an 8-9 year old bourbon finished in Orange Curacao Casks and bottled at 110 proof. I'm less than excited for this one however interestingly I believe retail on this is lower than the last few at […]
  • Heaven Hill... July 5, 2018
    Nobody has mentioned the 27yr yet? Any thoughts on this one. I've been exploring the probability of the relationship between this set of barrels and the ones Willett released earlier this year. I've tasted 3 of the 4 and if this HH is anything like it...it's gonna be pretty good.
  • To boldly go.... June 27, 2018
    This is a total rip-off and I want it anyway because as much as I might be a whiskey nerd..... http://www.liquorama.net/james-t-kirk-straight-bourbon-whiskey-750ml.html
  • Elijah Craig Single Barrel Aged 18 Years June 26, 2018
    Is what my daughter gave me for Fathers day!  What a great gift.  I couldn't believe what I was seeing as I took it out of the brown paper bag.  This is one I'll only share with 2 people, my brother and my son.  A real easy drinker with a nice long finish.
