Our Bourbon Of The Month

  • BOTM 6/18: HANCOCK'S PRESIDENTIAL RESERVE June 2, 2018
    I'm only a day late, but that's better'n par for the course.  Yet again another revisit, although it's been a while. HPR was last the BOTM way back in February of 2009 to be exact. It started showing up (again) the last few months at a number of stores in my area. And FWIW, I recently finished a bottle.   Soooooo......   […]

History

  • 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. 
  • Old Crow Distillery April 10, 2018
    Vosgar, Gavin0791 and I went on a three day, whirlwind trip to the motherland. This was to participate in a barrel pick at BT, along with giving my nephew Mike, aka Galvin0791 an introduction to the bourbon world. We had a great time. Along with seeing the "new" at BT, we got to experience some of the […]

  • Where Is Your Proof ? June 18, 2018
      You know, the one you have found to be your preferred amount of dilution, if any.  I can admire those that can drink a 130 pf cask strength whiskey and truly enjoy it.  I cannot.  In fact I don't buy many cask strength whiskies unless they either economically deliver more drinks per bottle than […]
  • My Palate: The Liar... June 16, 2018
    There were several bottles that I opened this year or late last year & thought how bad or mediocre they were. Upon opening my second bottle of CEHT SiB, I thought how boring it was. It was ok but no pizzazz. It was missing the bubblegum flavor of the first & I had no cravings […]
  • Early Father’s Day Gift June 15, 2018
    My oldest daughter scoured the area and found me a bottle of ECBP A118. I now have both expressions for this year.    I love my my oldest daughter. 
  • Sazerac sues Castle & Key. Castle & Key wins. June 15, 2018
    I have to admit to being biased in this one as Castle & Key's attorney is a friend of mine. (And a little known member here.)   http://www.opn.ca6.uscourts.gov/opinions.pdf/18a0113p-06.pdf

Premium Bourbon / Specialty Bottlings

  • WT RB Masters Keep - Revival June 15, 2018
    Just got a blast email from WT.  Finished in Oloroso sherry casks, 12-15 YO 101 proof.  I didn't search for a typical price.  I sure hope this one is in line with previous WTRBMK releases.
  • Most recent E.H. Taylor Barrel Proof? June 14, 2018
    I've been seeing a lot of E.H. Taylor pop up on the various online liquor shops and on social media.  Has there been a recent new release or is this hold back from the last release?
  • Garrison Brothers Single Barrel, Store Pick, Mini-Review... June 11, 2018
    While in Dallas over the weekend, I bought a Total Wine Store Pick of Garrison Bros Single Barrel. It was a 2011 version on sale for $89. After tax it pretty much got my $100 bill. But for Daughter, I didn't mind the price. The store label said to expect heavy on the butterscotch & […]
  • Angel’s Envy Cask Strength worth it? June 1, 2018
    Anybody feel that Angel’s envy Cask strength is worth purchasing at retail $229.99?  Any experience with it?
  • Russell’ Reserve 2002 May 31, 2018
    It’s on.    I got to get this.
