    What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today (Winter 2019)

    I totally agree. The restaurant we usually go to before our Broadway Series play in Louisville still has a bottle. I have a pour every time we're there.

    So, whatcha smokin?

    I think you and I may have the same “smoking gloves”. [emoji6]
  8. It was about 25 degrees and icy rain here last night so can't imagine camping out. I camped out overnight one time in the 80s for concert tickets. I don't know if I"d camp out now even if I was guaranteed a bottle of PVW23 at retail. Hope you got something more than an RC6. They were stacked 10 deep on the shelf at TW in KY.

    From my counties whisky event yesterday. It’s gotten too crazy. No more camping out for me. Go there at 8:45 the night before and was about 115 in line. Probably just do the afternoon releases from now on. EC is a 10 yr.

    Had some BTPS in my flask Thursday while camping out at my county’s whiskey event. Bought at the event and cracked last night. Interesting nose with sour stewed fruits and oak. Very sweet, with more stewed fruits on the palate. Almost seemed like it could be port or sherry cask finished or something. Not an everyday pour but I like it.

    Im either just not a fan or have too much ADD to read that long a write up on him.
  15. Saw this article on Barron's - which initially I thought might be indicative that the bubble is getting ripe, but thinking it speaks more to MGP's management potentially. https://www.barrons.com/articles/mgp-ingredients-stock-is-plunging-on-disappointing-whiskey-sales-numbers-51579279726 If I were them, I'd have bet that folks would be clawing to buy aged whiskey to throw labels on with their own false backstory, etc. Maybe with folks like Peerless able to sell 2 & 3 yr old stock at BTAC prices - the market isn't rational (wait . . . not rational?) Figured folks here would find this interesting.

    Japanese Whiskey Folks...

    Same happened to me at some point I just started using photo links to Onedrive/Office365 where they get uploaded anyway, probably could do the same with any file hosting service, google drive, icloud, whatever.
  19. Sorry to make you bristle on a Friday night, Joe...... I donated a couple of Ritt BiB's for the 2010 SB Bourbon Taster of the Year event at the KBF. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe there were 12 whiskies displayed, the contestants were given samples of 6 of them, and they had to try and determine which of the 12 they were tasting, in the right order. As I recall the Ritt was one of the 6, the only rye in the competition, and no one guessed correctly what it was. I don't recall everyone who participated, but it was a group of well respected SB members (I wasn't one of them ). Two things I learned from that event. 1) Blind tasting is very humbling 2) Ritt BiB is very much like a bourbon. Obviously I'm not going to lump every 51% rye into the "bourbony" category but for me, Ritt 354 is. Now I'm going to have to open one tomorrow and confirm or deny what I just said.......
  20. Had some Stagg Jr. Batch 11. Only a small pour since its Mrs. Clueby's bottle. Then moved on to a sbs of a couple 375s of BT store picks. They were VERY different. One was very un-BT like. Had a bit of nuttiness and a funkiness in the finish. The other was like an amped up BT with vanilla and that BT mineral-ness. I liked it quite a bit better. Mrs. Clueby agreed.

    That’s very much what I get from that bottle, and I love it. Moving up and down through the 1792 labels of SmB, BIB, Single Barrel, Full Proof, the profile shifts to more/less of each of your notes, and makes for some nice, while different, offerings. IMO, Barton is killing it with their line extension of 1792.

    Just Standard BT. Didn’t feel like high proof and this is plenty to keep me interested with some pleasant side effects. Love it.

    The next Craft Distillery to hang with the big boys?...

    I have enjoyed a few pours from Detroit city distillery, recently was given a bottle at Christmas and from what I can tell with them is they are not sourcing. They are stamping the young age right on there and it has surprised me and couple others with it. They also have a good vodka and gin. Visiting family in Detroit and they know the owners or the MD so we went, was a good time. Anyone else tried anything from there?
