    What bourbon did you pass on, Summer 2019?

    I recall having tried WSR early on in my bourbon journey, when WL12 and OWA were commonly found on the shelf. I thought is was a weak substitute and just didn't "get it." I always preferred OWA over WL12 which I enjoyed but found a little sooty. However, as WL12 and OWA have all but disappeared, I have occasionally ran across WSR and find it much better than the other available wheated bourbon options in the lower to mid-tier price range. I have even found that there are times I prefer something in the 90 proof range. It would be a regular bottle in my rotation if I could find it in Indiana.

    Neither have the distributers. They certainly can't keep promises, but it probably isn't their fault. As far as pricing, their are some good folks here, but the greedy bastiges are rampant as well...

    The nutrition aspect of bourbon is often understated. It is like a corn smoothie. I have often wondered why it isn't available at Smoothie King.

    In Florida it would be North of $150... I still haven't figured out Florida's distribution and pricing.

    What Bourbon Are You Drinking? (Summer 2019)

    BIB day (many are, as I’m a BIB Freak)! Started the day with OFBIB 1897, switched gears with GDBIB. May hit OGDBIB later...
  10. Refrigerated bourbons are quite popular here. My go to in past years was HHBIB. This summer it has been T. W. Samuels and HH 90 proof. Both have proven to be very tasty from the fridge .

    I'm still not going to get my first taste of Old Fitz. 13year $299
  12. I have noticed a couple of posts with chilled bourbons. Most I think have been 4R & maybe one other. I thought I would give this a try with my last few pours of a dwindling bottle of OWA. After pouring my first & letting it sit for maybe a minute, I though it was wonderful, as did my visitors. I put the second pour in the glass back in the freezer & got a few more degrees of chill on it. It wasn't nearly as good, but as it sat & warmed up a bit, it was back to wonderful... My visitors agreed! Personally, I drink most, neat. I don't care for a splash or ice, so this was worth another try with other bourbons. What other bourbons chilled in the fridge or freezer have been deemed a success or failure? Or do you think this is just dumb? All opinions welcomed...

    Blasphemy, I say!!!! You're referring to beer (and probably most craft whiskies). Good bourbon is completely absorbed by your body and is extremely nutritious. There is no waste produced from bourbon for the body to excrete. Among its benefits: Aids your digestive tract Gives your hair a luminous shine Makes your skin look radiant Sharpens your awareness Helps restore lost brain cells Produces a pheromone that makes you more attractive to the opposite sex Give you the energy of a 16yr old (which is necessary because of the pheromone effects) If you don't believe me, come to Bardstown for the Sampler or KBF and see for yourself how 3-4 days of drinking whiskey makes SB members young again! Still don't believe me, ask Troyce, he'll back me up.

    Right out of the freezer, it was excellent!!! Buuuuut, I put my second pour, in the glass, back in the freezer & got it just a bit colder. It wasn't nearly as good. My company thought it was a different bourbon altogether. After it warmed for about 5 min, it was back to lovely... 2. Why do you need a bottle of degreaser next to your computer? Damn, I knew this question was coming! Shoulda' called Vegas!!! That is actually my decanter. Note the intense burnt orange. hehe

    I'd have to agree considering the local price on 750s of ER (that I passed on yesterday) is $47.
  18. Joe's referring to this one. Haven't been back to the restaurant since I took this picture to see how much, if at all, its changed

  20. Well, as much as I was thinking this is probably going to be "whiskey of the year", back to old school turkey rye...…. No. I've had mine open for 2 weeks now, and its ok, good at best. I have a WT 101 rye open from 2005 and it's quite a bit better. I know it's going to get better, but I didn't find anything special about this rye yet. I still love my Turkey, but this to me didn't do this MK line up any good.

    Vail Colorado store 2 years ago. Sells everyone he gets within a week and you can bitch all you want just not to him.
  23. A few more pictures..
  24. My girl and I did the Jack Tour this Saturday. I hadn’t been in 15+ years. We did the “Angel’s Share” Tour.. This came with a SBS flight of #27 Gold, Sinatra Select, JDSBS, JDBP, and the JD Rye.. The BP is spectacular IMO.. She’s not a brown liquor fan, but seemed to enjoy the #27 which is very light to me at 80pr.. sweet being finished in maple barrels. I bought a bottle of the special edition of White Rabbit Saloon, which isn’t anything “special” really. From my understanding it’s just a throw back to when the Old #7 was offered at 86pr. Supposedly it can only be purchased in the state of TN. I’ve included a few pictures. Heat index was 100ish out, but the cave where they draw their water from was a pleasant 56 degrees. Nice!

    Found a place off the beaten path that had some of these left so I thought I might as well put a few in the bunker.
  26. I had the last pour of a locally made, barrel aged apple brandy today from the Piccardy/Normandy region. This is one that based on the type of wine bottle it was put in it was likely bottled in the 70s. Really fantastic stuff. The way this worked was most locals in these small farming villages would have a small orchard. They’d produce there own cider. A guy with a still on a wagon would come to the villages and hang out at the bar. The locals would come and he’d he’d make brandy from there cider. I believe a combination of laws changing plus the old timers dying meant this awesome tradition is gone. Picked up a couple of bottles yesterday from a neighbor. Sadly these weren’t aged in the cider barrels and from the bottles I believe where bottled in the mid 90s to early 2000’s. These seem to have come of the still much hotter than the previous bottles from the 70s. Still once you add a little water it really opens up and it clearly has that apple smell on the nose and palate. I should be able to bring back a bottle of this.
