    Empty bottle(s) support group ~ 2019

    I feel 'ya brother. I have enjoyed many varied whiskies. But near the top of my fave list is a WTKS PS, that I picked up while in Kentucky. It also was bottled in 2017. (Shhh, we don't want to start a Tater feeding frenzy for '17 WTKS ) Cheers
  3. I feel your pain, I just finished an OESK myself last week. Thankfully they still make more of this nectar of the gods!

    What Bourbon Are You Drinking? (Summer 2019)

    Staring at an older bottle of OWA (previous bottle, squat profile) in the cabinet. Since I've been sipping Baker's tonight I decided on an impromptu 107 proof face-off, Bakers vs OWA. Drinking OWA after drinking Baker's is a joke. In comparison, OWA lacks depth, complexity, tastes thin compared to Baker's, etc. etc I can go on. But basically standard OWA is a cheap bourbon that's amped up to a respectable 107 proof. But that's all it is. It's Maker's Mark on steroids, but has the Tater stamp of approval for some reason.
  5. Just happened to "stumble on" these, huh? Umm, yeah.

    I warmed up with EWSB 2010. It's a good warm up, but time for something more. All this Baker's/DC talk has made the decision easy for me. The blend is next...

    I love Baker's. Have you tried blending Baker's with Distiller's Cut? I liked it. Adds some of the NCF texture to the great balance of Baker's. Side benefit that it makes a Baker's bottle last longer without changing the overall taste (since they are similar). Win win

    What the heck is going on here? Those kinds of discoveries at this time of the year just don’t happen in my world. Congratulations!

    I've had good luck too and I've had several different barrel picks. The one Full Proof I didn't care for was the standard stock version (not a private select). It was okay but the bad outweighed the good (too hot with not enough redeeming flavor). My solution for that bottle has been to blend it with my 1792 Port bottle, which I didn't care for on its own either. I'm gradually making my way through the blend and it's decent.

    National Rum Day - What are you drinking?

    I had a couple pours of Appleton Estate 12yr tonight. I actually bought this bottle at the distillery years ago, and it’s getting down to a low enough fill level that I need to finish it off pretty soon. It will be missed.
  12. I'm starting to waffle on this one a bit. When it was announced I was all gung-ho but after reading some reviews from sources I trust (palates that have a history of being in sync with mine) I'm not so sure I'm a buyer at the high price of $175. I'm going to have to hear more.

    Depends on how much wine she drinks! I am drinking 1792 Store Select Full Proof. Some say they find this a hot mess, but I have enjoyed every bottle I have had.

    Show Us Your Stash - Volume 5

    It's hard to say, as I've never been to a liqour store up there. I live in Cincinnati so depending on how close you are to a big city, I could see there being a drastic difference in allocation.

    Friday night’s haul... The Bowman Port is out of the box for me having never indulged in anything port finished etc.. it’s been on the “to try” list and I’ve passed on several times when traveling.. the ER10 is ALWAYS out of stock at the local ABC’s, but stumbled on in abundance tonight.. absolutely LOVE the OFBIB 1897 and picked this up as an extra... the OFBIB is first on the slate!

    Well Vosgar kicked my .... today but I still feel fortunate to get several bottles at a 30% discount including OF1920 @$36, FRSiB @$26, KC @$19 and WT101 @ $15. I didn't get greedy. I bought my wife and son some Jose Cuervo Lite Margarita bottles to get the 6 bottle discount.

    I would be crying in my milk if I wasn't drinking bourbon.

    I love Baker's. Just notice that the local Kroger which generally has the lowest prices have raise their price on Baker's. While a price increase is never good, given today's market, I am not certain that the price increase is unreasonable. It is now $59.99. I can still find it cheaper but it is closing the gap on Booker's.

    New Riff lands in No. Calif.

    I agree it is really good at 4 years old. It will be interesting to see how it is in a couple of years.
