    agreed - Astor is excellent - also has a great website to check out before you hit up the store.

    Little Book Chapter 3 - a KSBW

    I've been 'listening' to all the comments here, and awaiting someone's impressions of the actual distillate. I thought by now, someone might've been able to sample it, if not obtain a bottle. From the description available from B/S I'd have to imagine this would be a wonderful Bourbon, and that I'd love it; but, of course the actual percentages of the various barrels will certainly alter the profile a good deal. The fact that it's all barrel proof Bourbon (I believe) and is bottled NCF makes it likely to be at least an interesting pour. The main caveat, as is so often the case any more, is that MSRP: $125. That means it likely won't see many shelves (if it indeed actually sees ANY shelves) below $150. I'm not sure I want to try it that badly. If, after trying it at some smaller quantity (and lower cash-outlay), it really blew my hair back, I might change my mind.

    Definitely grab a pair. For some reason I dont currently have a bottle of WTRB myself. I'll probably remedy that before Saturday evening.

    Cocktail Hour 2019

    My wife and I had Moscow Mules on a hot afternoon, yesterday. They were very good, but not quite as good as ones we had in a restaurant in Bon Secour, AL last week. It was probably just from different brands of Ginger Beer. We used Gosling's, theirs tasted like Buffalo Rock, an old fashioned Alabama ginger ale.

    For a good laugh check out the prices in the store inside Grand Central. Astor Wines & Spirits usually has some good store picks. Yorkshire Wines & Spirits on the upper east side is a decent store but in general, you're not going to find any amazing deals in the city.
  10. Opened the Chateau de Breuil 20 year. Really nice has the fruit characteristics and wonderful nose while picking up some of the aged barrel characteristics. Punched well above it’s 81 proof as well. I’m enjoying it.

    My brother used to live in Manhattan (some time ago) and I do remember going to Schumer's Wine & Liquors for some Scotch. Their selection was great and the prices not over the top given their location. The store had a 25yr Pappy behind glass for $13,999, which was amusing to look at...other stores had their price gauging selection of rarer Bourbons on the shelves (Weller 12 for $299.99, etc), but if my memory serves me correctly the above mentioned store was the one to go to....good luck.

    A 375 of WT101 to decide if I want to pick up a RB on sale where I am traveling for work. Based on this, yes please at $35 for the RB. Not sure why I waited to long to try this.

    What Bourbon Are You Drinking? (Summer 2019)

    On business. Long day of travel from coast to coast plus a couple hours working after. Had a BT and baby Saz with dinner. Picked up a 375 of WT101 to have for the hotel. Home work to decide if I want to pick up a WTRB that’s on sale here. Why have I not talked to the Turkey way sooner than this. I’ve had RRSmb but that was a couple years ago before I really went over the bourbon cliff. This stuff is great so yes please to a bottle of RB flying back with me at $35.
  14. New guy here, long time lurker and follower. Head to NYC and looking for suggestions in the city. Cheers

    Finishing this one off, maybe.
  16. Found one on the shelf and then found a couple reviews online. Didn't read like it was worth the $88 so I didn't go back and scoop it!

    New Riff SB. Pup and I have the house to ourselves for the evening. He's sleeping on the floor. New Riff is deserving of the accolades. Need to find a bottle of the rye. Probably best I don't have the rye, or I'd be joining the pup on the floor this Wednesday evening!

    I finished off a warehouse F tonight, so I decided to replace it with this one. It doesnt quite have the same WT spice, but it's pretty darn good. The nose absolutely screams WT, which makes me happy.
  19. I’d love to do this one blind with rr and r101, but I do have all 3 and I can say now that cornerstone is one of the best ryes I’ve ever had. Thick and oily and a finish that lasts a long time.

    PS BT...not the best PS I’ve had, but scratched an itch tonight.

    I'd be in trouble.
  22. Local is having a sale on #2 for $70. Still not sure I'll bite.
  23. I'm a big fan of Tyrone F and CNF (ok, all the warehouses are good to fantastic). I sure do hope these PS RR SiB will stay at the current age and price for the foreseeable future.

    Bardstown Bourbon - Fusion & Discovery Series

    I’ve tried them both and they are very average. I wouldn’t buy a bottle.
  26. All things considered the signs point to these not lasting for ever so certainly worth getting while the getting is still good.
