  1. Past hour
  2. That was just to keep track of how many I had. That stack got a bit higher.

    What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today, Spring 2019

    My haul from this past week. I might be most excited about the 10yr 8mth OESK my buddy picked up!

    Best High Rye, Rye

    Yeah we don't get many store picks here in Iowa. I've found a few online shops that ship though. Is Utah one of those states that is difficult to get booze shipped into?
  5. Today
  6. I guess we’re not too legal down here. One of the biggest whisk(e)y bars closed it’s doors and sold off all of the open bottles— using a ruler and literally charging by the inch of remaining liquid. Not my cup of tea.

    So, whatcha smokin?

    So, whatcha smokin?

    I don’t know Jack about Cohiba, other than it’s a storied name and today there are Cohibas and then there are Cohibas. This is not the latter. Anywho, enjoying this Churchill tonight. Easy pull, great burn, and great body. The ash is tight, and though I flicked it off soon after this pic, this could have lasted a while. Going very well with the Jackie’s 1792 SB.
  9. It is always important to double up when pouring bourbon into those plastic hotel glasses.

    Best sub-$100 rye

    Maybe most ryes are sub-$100, but certainly not the best ones

    What dram are you enjoying - Winter/Spring 2019?

    The highest proof OB Jura I’ve tried— needs water and time in the glass...
  12. I believe (in Michigan, at least) the remaining opened bottles of liquor ALL are expected to be dumped, and the unopened liquor is inventoried to set value and remunerations. ...Whether that is exactly what happens all the time, is, of course, an open question. I believe this is pro forma whenever a tavern changes ownership for any reason.
  13. A little post dinner W12.

    What dram are you enjoying - Winter/Spring 2019?

    After doing an unusually good job on NY strips and a nice burgundy with said dinner, I’m settling in with some Hakushu 12.
  15. I don't know the particulars of the micro brewery you are speaking of but it seems like - at least in Indiana - a lot of micros try to build on their popularity by expanding too rapidly. I am not certain of the bankruptcy and/or alcohol laws in your state. Maybe someone will be able to purchase the beer. However, even if they could, I wonder if they could market it under the previous name.
  16. Yesterday
  17. Makes sense that the "good stuff" has the left the building, as they knew this was coming. Sham about the beer as they had 3 or 4 regular beers that were very good.
  18. Had the wife blind me WTRB and WB Saffell. The Saffell was superior across the board, it’s not close. Worth 2x price? Hard to say and really price threshold varies by individual. However, IMO the Saffell delivers for the price.
  19. A little 4R SmB Select while doing a little grilling.

    It's National Bourbon Day

    Last night I also went the Wild Turkey route, with a fine store pick of RR single barrel for national bourbon day. Outstanding as always.

    What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today, Spring 2019

    Good day. The ECBP is now one of the best values out there in my area and the Saffell is fantastic.

    What dram are you enjoying - Winter/Spring 2019?

    Didn’t expect the offer to try these two this afternoon— the Lagavulin was good, but got its doors blown off by the Caol Ila...
  23. I agree that most of the "good stuff" probably left via the back door before the place was locked up. However, I would assume that once closed, the primary lender or bankruptcy trustee has probably changed the locks to protect assets. Obviously, open bottles can't be sold so if the previous owners didn't take them, it wouldn't be surprising for them to disappear by other means. I bet the beer in the tanks gets dumped. A large chain in Indiana (brewer) who overextended and added too many retail restaurants has recently shuttered all locations, except for the original brewery. They had done some bourbon barrel picks. They were labeled. I wonder if the unopened bottles will be bought at auction and sold retail by whoever gets the lot.

    Best sub-$100 rye

    Too many options to contemplate. Few are extraordinary but most are very solid. OF Rye and Pikesville top my list for flavor and QPR. However, I do enjoy WTR101. I also enjoy others but price and availability factor in. Right now, it is difficult to buck up for anything over OF Rye.
  25. The open stuff really has no value. I would think the owners would take it.
  26. That's a loot! I was 43rd in line this AM and got a Rock Hill Farms.

    Best sub-$100 rye

    I love Pikesville, but I can buy a liter of WT 101 Rye for half the money. And the Turkey is dang good.
