Well, it's a very special month and this year it gets the addition of a pretty big election. I first thought about picking a bourbon that could be tied to a Presidential election. Hancock's Presidential Reserve is such an obvious choice and I even have a bottle but I decided against it since it's become […]
From Fawn Weaver, the CEO and founder of Uncle Nearest Whiskey. Thought it was worth sharing: "Hey @jackdaniels_us, how about you guys bring this early 1900s bottle back? I understand from your historian that it’s the only Jack Daniel’s bottle to contain both his name and picture. I’ve been trying to get my hand on […]
It has been way too long since I've looked in here. I hope I have still many friends at SB. I've been busy writing mostly about beer history in recent years at my site, www.beeretseq.com, and in scholarly journals. I do still write about whiskey though, earlier this month I did a number […]
There are not very many reviews about these bourbons, they say small batch but the store sells them as single barrel. I got the 5328500. Very good bourbon, just do not know much about it. What is a store pick?
Today for Thanksgiving I'll be visiting a relative's house. She has a liquor cabinet with bottles of bourbon that have been open for the better part of 10 years, untouched since her divorce. It's perfectly dark inside the liquor cabinet, so sun exposure is not an issue. I realize there is likely some oxidation […]
Recently, for the first time in a long time, I picked up a bottle each of Weller OWA and Weller 12. Opened them both, and after a few pours from each (not all at the same time!) started thinking about the good old days and the popularity of the "SB Blend" wherein we combined the […]

Was trying to do some research around bottle counts of the LE's and have trouble finding US bottle counts after 2015. Does anyone have the bottle counts of the LESmB 2016-2018. I know that 2019 is 13,440 and 2020 is 14,040.
I have had this annual release in 2018 and 2019, and I really liked 2018 recently when I had at a bar. I see that the 2020 version is out in Ohio, has anyone tried it yet and have any thoughts if its worth the $200+
Made with special barrels using 2 staves, American and French oaks. Released at 110.8 proof. It wasn’t until my 3rd visit that I decided I like it, but many folks would not. It’s very single dimensional with little after taste. It seems maybe “hot” with tannins? I plan SBS with other higher proofers. I’ve […]
So I don’t think I’ve seen much chatter about this year’s PHC yet. If someone else already started a thread on it, mods certainly merge this with it or whatever. 10 years, #5 char, 120 proof, NCF. I can’t really think of another release that aligns well with those stats for anything to project […]
