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

  • Christie's Auction: Pre-Prohibition and Prohibition Era Whiskies December 3, 2018
    I'm not sure if this has been posted yet. I did a quick query on the SB.com search function, and didn't see any posts about this. Check out the photo at the top of the linked page, showing the Hancock Park family residence hidden whiskey cellar. Now that's what I call a bunker! Apparently, this […]
  • 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.

  • Jack Daniels Single Barrel "Heritage Barrel" December 11, 2018
    After doing the obligatory Search with several variations, I'm posting my query here.  Yeah, I know it's "Tennessee Whiskey" but still technically bourbon, no?   My memories of JD are from my "Animal House" days at my fraternity in college so I'm hesitant to pull the trigger just yet.  Supposedly, this is 100 proof whiskey […]
  • The things people do December 10, 2018
    Thought I would share this here.  I donated a bottle of Van Winkle Lot B for the local hospital auxiliary Christmas auction. They use this money to provide transportation and other services for those in need.  The bottle went for $1000.  I am still amazed at what people will pay for this bourbon.  The bidding […]
  • Fall is great!!! December 7, 2018
    Bagged these the last 2 days. The BT store pick is delicious!!!! 
  • Four Roses SiB on Allocation? December 7, 2018
    I’m not sure if I’ve been under a rock and unaware of something common knowledge, but the standard 4R SiB is disappearing from shelves in my market. I’m being told by store owners and managers that it’s allocated now. One store owner was told by his distributor that they would be $100 a bottle within a […]

  • Old Charter Oak? December 6, 2018
    I didn't see any mention of this yet.  Looks like BTEC v2.0 (or 1.1?)   https://gearpatrol.com/2018/12/05/buffalo-trace-old-charter-bourbon-whiskey/?fbclid=IwAR0SbY0p0FjH4pN7WnGvFl_0LN0-Mg1_0BoISRFWEkYQi3r3dwyEWBTAMFo
  • 2018 batches of Michter’s 10? December 5, 2018
    Has anyone been trying the 2018 Michter’s 10 batches lately? I am in general a bit of a Michter’s hater, and haven’t liked the 2015-2017 batches that I have tasted. But I have been hearing that the 2018 is an improvement over those. I’ve still passed on M10 a few time recently but I’m starting […]
  • Jim Rutledge Cream of Kentucky December 1, 2018
    Posted this in the TTB thread courtesy of SKU, but Jim Rutledge Distillery seems to have it's first sourced release https://www.ttbonline.gov/colasonline/viewColaDetails.do?action=publicFormDisplay&ttbid=18325001000092
  • Woodford Master’s Collection Oat Grain and Select American Oak November 27, 2018
    Anybody try either of these yet? The price went up again, so I’m hesitant to buy before I try, so I thought I’d see if any of my fellow SB members had tried either of them yet.
  • Booker's 30th Anniversary November 18, 2018
    Just saw this  come up on our PA LS website.  Anyone heard anything about this?  $200 is a tad steep for me but I'd think about it...
