Our Bourbon Of The Month

  • BOTM 8/18: Bulleit Bourbon July 31, 2018
    Yeah, I'm early for a change. Every once in a while.......   I couldn't believe it's been over 10 years since this was the BOTM. So....... here we go.    Much has changed with Bulleit in the last couple of years or so.  Four Roses is no longer in the picture, and speculation has it that BF and/or […]

History

  • Jim Beam Black Label Change July 9, 2019
    Hey! I was researching the history of Jim Beam Black Label and I found some old bottles with the name Beam's Black Label. Obviously, it's the same stuff, but I was wondering if anyone knows when Beam decided to change the name or why they did? Let me know!
  • Prohibition bottle found. Need info! April 23, 2019
    Hi,   We found this prohibition era bottle of rye when cleaning out my parents house. I couldn’t find any information about it online so I figured I would ask the experts and see if anyone on the forum knows anything further about it. Unopened.    Thank you in advance.

  • Knob Creek Barrel Pick September 18, 2019
    Heading to Cleremont at 2:00 pm today to do a Barrel Pick of Knob Creek with John O's.  I'll take a bunch of pictures and let you guys know how it went.  Excited to do my first Private Selection.
  • Just for sh-ts and grins... September 16, 2019
    Like some of you have indicated in other posts, I keep track of my liquor purchases in a spreadsheet.  Not sure why I hadn’t thought of this earlier but, the other day, I decided to add some totals & calculations at the bottom of each sheet to see what I had actually spent and also to […]
  • Boxcar pop-up Philadelphia September 15, 2019
    When I saw the Facebook blast for a "free" Bourbon event  in Philadelphia, I figured why not? Makers Mark, Jim Beam, Basil Hayden, and Knob Creek tastings, free food, free cocktails, and even free glassware with the Philadelphia skyline. It was reminiscent of a mini sampler. A nice afternoon out for us. Finished off with […]
  • Bourbon Decor September 14, 2019
    Not sure if anyone started a thread on Bourbon swag in the Bar or Mancave.     Had this made local in Louisville.  1300 Games ready to go!

Premium Bourbon / Specialty Bottlings

  • Maker's Mark Wood Finishing Series RC6 September 12, 2019
    I'm not a big Maker's guy but nice to see a limited release at a price accessible for many, at $60 it is below the price of the private selections in most (All?) markets. https://www.gobourbon.com/makers-mark-wood-finishing-series-national-release/
  • Four Roses 2019 SmB LE September 4, 2019
    Didn't see a thread for this yet..   https://fourrosesbourbon.com/bourbon/limited-edition/2019-small-batch/   Quote Non-chill filtered and bottled at a 112.6 proof, the 2019 Limited Edition Small Batch marks the first Four Roses limited-quantity bottling to feature a 21-year-old Bourbon which is from the distillery’s OBSV recipe. This release will also feature a 15-year-old OESK, 15-year-old OESV and […]

  • Alabama ABC Sweepstakes - what to get? August 22, 2019
    I'm no.26 in line for Alabama's ABC "Limited Release Sweepstakes" coming up Saturday.  I've been trying to track down bottles of ETL as my last bottle is at half which has me a little distracted from trying to come up with a "draft board" for the sweepstakes.  Also, the drawing was yesterday and I didn't expect […]
  • 2019 Weller C.Y.P.B Release? August 11, 2019
    So I thought BT said CYPB was going to be an annual summer release, but I have heard nothing about a 2019 shipment. Is this just gonna appear when Full Proof hits? Did they change it to a one time only release?
