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.

  • New Riff lands in No. Calif. August 16, 2019
    Just saw that K&L has New Riff SiB BP and BiB bourbon, BiB rye and two gin expressions in stock.  Didn't know it was going to be here this soon if ever.  I had previously acquired a couple of bottles of the SiB from Seelbach's.  Pretty darn good for four y.o.  Definitely a thumbs up […]
  • Boone County Sm Batch August 14, 2019
    Starting to see this around. Assume its their own  distillate. $42 but if its a stinker like Old Scout 107 I didnt want to gamble. Anyone sampled?

  • Buying Bourbon in Tunisia August 11, 2019
    Hello All,   Looking for a little help.  Heading to Tunis for a couple of weeks, just checking to see if anyone has been there and tackled this problem.  From limited information I can find, the hard stuff is not really out there to buy outside of the hotel bar.  While I will most likely be […]

  • 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? 
  • Wild Turkey Master's Keep Cornerstone Rye August 3, 2019
    I'm interested in this one but heard that it's going to be lottery in VA (which means that my odds of getting one go from very likely to extremely unlikely).  Was curious if anyone has had it yet and what their thoughts were.  Also curious as to what areas have seen it start to release.  […]
