Our Bourbon Of The Month

  • BOTM 12/19: Stagg Jr. (and friends) December 9, 2019
    OK......as the new director of BOTM I'm going to take some liberties this month. Bear with me.   It's December and during this holiday season all of us bring out our special bottles, as we should. (We should bring them out all year long of course, but bringing them out during the holidays and other […]

History

  • Federal Reserve Green Label October 31, 2019
    I recently discover a bottle of "Federal Reserve Green Label" in a family collection I was cleaning out. I have been unable to find any information on who was the distillery  or who bottled it. I would have assumed since its "The World's Finest Bourbon" I should have found something on it. It had been opened […]
  • Looking for Old Poindexter Info October 24, 2019
    Wondering if anyone has information on Old Poindexter distillery out of Lexington, KY. From what I've read they are a closed distillery pre-prohibition, later Schenley bought rights and trademark in 1934. I'm wondering what happened with bottle releases after the Schenley purchase. I've only seen a few bottles after '34, but bottles seem to have conflicting […]

  • Crystal City ABC Sites? December 11, 2019
    In Crystal City, VA outside of DC for next few days. Any ABC sites that are better than others?   Thanks,
  • OWA cork December 11, 2019
    Was just stuck in traffic  trying to get to a Weller Full Proof barrel.. whole barrel gone In 20 minutes. On my way back I was wondering ..Are the screw tops gone for good on OWA or was the gold foil cork just temporary? If permanent will W12 and WSR be making the transition soon?
  • Christmas Eve Lineup December 9, 2019
    I've started keeping a few bottles of the "Nice Stuff" obtained during the year to open and enjoy with the 20 or so friends and family that come to our house for the annual "Food Orgy".  This year has been a little better so here is my lineup for Christmas Eve.   The Barrel Bourbon […]
  • Hunting for specific empty bottles December 8, 2019
    I have a couple of fun bourbon projects in the works and when they are ready, there are specific resting places that I would love for them.    The two main bottles I am searching for are Wild Turkey Master's Keep Revival and Blanton's SFTB (with or without the cork).    Thank you all for […]

Premium Bourbon / Specialty Bottlings

  • Remus Volstead 14 year December 7, 2019
    I don't think their is a thread on this one. Anyone had it and comment on the quality of this MGP sourced bourbon.
  • OF Single Barrel New Orleans Bourbon Fest pick November 22, 2019
    Picked this up today. It has some really great, bold flavors that you expect from a darker bourbon, but it drinks hot.  It feels more like a 120+ proof, not a 90 proof (which it is).  This is definitely a one or two ice cube drink.   
  • Eagle Rare 17 2019 November 21, 2019
    So excited I had to post.  Just scored 3 bottles of ER17 at base retail.  Nope, zero will go on secondary market but these will be shared with buds that appreciate, and maybe one that likes bourbon and coke.  Major meteor shower/burst set for tonight 11 to 12 midnight EST and this will make it […]
  • Cream of Kentucky Batch 3 - picked it up today November 14, 2019
    Like the old saying, “Time to buy it is when you see it!”   Ive never seen CoK on the shelf, so I grabbed it (little hesitation).  It’s the most I’ve ever paid for a bottle of bourbon besides my PVW20.    This was $155.    Its batch #3.  It’s so new, I get zero […]
