There's been a lot of talk on the forum about this one lately and it's never been BOTM so it's finally time. As usual, the hubbub was due to smokinjoe – he does have a way of getting us talking! He and I tend to agree on most things whiskey so even though I know […]
Old Ingledew expected to bring 20,000 to 40,000 at auction. https://www.cnn.com/2021/04/26/us/oldest-whiskey-georgia-auction-trnd/index.html I guess if it's carbon dated at least the age is legitimate. Lord knows what it tastes like.
I'm conducting an interesting exercise tonight, sipping side by side two four-grain craft bourbons with good reputations (Frey Ranch and Laws Four-grain Bonded) and then finishing things off with a good craft bourbon with a traditional rye-based mashbill (FEW) I guess I just don't get the point of a four-grain mashbill. If you […]
I have to travel from the Redondo Beach area to the Palm Springs area toward the end of next month (91 to the 215 to the 10) so I thought I would ask if anyone has a must-see liquor store or whiskey bar in the desert or en-route? Please message me PRIVATELY. Thanks.

I recently came in to possession of this. Does anyone know what year it is and what it’s worth? As you can see, I has a wooden box and some papers in it, one being a deed to Abraham Lincolns Forgotten Farm saying the owner has 1 square inch.
Has anyone heard or tried this Makers Private Select – Raising the Bar: Women Who Whisky 2021? Picked up for $40, a little hard to go wrong at that price. Not able to give it a try at the moment and debating grabbing a 2nd before heading out of the area (Branson, MO).
Has anyone had a try yet? From what I understand the distillery has an ample supply, just not sure if it's worth the drive or not. I have found the offering to be really good ( 4 and 6) or not to my liking = Pact 5. I know there are varying opinions on […]
Between the two anybody have any experience, thoughts or opinions? I think they are about the same 90$ 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?
