Sorry for being a little late to kick off the new year but I needed a break after the State of the State post. With that aside, I figured we should kick off a new year with a new bourbon. For those of you who put up with my posts and who read the aforementioned […]
Hello! Please see attached photos. I found this a long time ago buried in an attic. Curious if anyone can identify it? It is Jim beam and comes with the original box as well, but I can’t find it online. It’s empty unfortunately, but still has paper tags, etc.
I have acquired a Blanton’s Single Barrel Bottle of Bourdon that has been mislabeled. When I un-bagged the bottle, I noticed the label on the body of the bottle has been placed upside down. I emailed the company and they stated that everything is bottled by hand and this was a mistake on their end […]
On Friday I'm flying in to El Paso so some buds & I can climb Guadalupe Peak on Saturday. They have of course charged me with securing a couple bottles there for the evenings' camping. Anyone know stores there that do good store picks?
Hey there Dear Friends, A quick FYI, I've been going through some health challenges the past few months. I sure haven't meant to be away from this beloved Forum and the incredible fun and joy that I find in it, but I just wanted to reach out to say that I'll hopefully be back […]
We all know the things that effect the flavor of our whiskey. The nerdiest among us know that all these things matter: -the grain used and it's moisture level when delivered -how the grain is milled -how the grain is cooked -how it's fermented including how long and at what temperatures -the yeast used -how […]
I am looking for a bottle with the barrel date or the dump date of 5/31/2018 (my daughters birthday) so that I can save it for her 21st. I would love to have the date, bottle could be new or empty just would love to have a bottle with the date.

Between the two anybody have any experience, thoughts or opinions? I think they are about the same 90$ price point or so; I know the correct answer is 'buy both and let us know'… But, I might lean towards the Weller- based on past performance Your thoughts?
Has anyone tried this yet? I've seen it floating around the forums but it seems to be readily available here. I understand the irony of the KCSiB that were 15yrs or older for half the cost but am curious nonetheless. Thoughts?
Anyone tried these yet? A LS owner offered me one, and asked which version I’d want. I know there are 3 different proofs, but haven’t paid close attention to whether or not there was a consensus opinion on preference between them?
My apologies for starting a “Pappy” thread but I’m curious about the rye recipe. The bottle for the newer non-tanked batches says “From Pappy Van Winkle’s Private Stock, Bottled by Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery.” Is the assumption that this is the same Sazerac 51%ish rye mashbill or the higher rye used in CEHT that is […]
