Texas hunt, vacation bourbons (and a rum!). Store picks on the right, stuff I can't find in FL on the left.

2 bottles didn't make the trip, crushed in transit. Now I have to figure out how to get whiskey smell out of a suitcase...IMG_20190803_005000750.jpg

Awesome haul!  Bummer on the two bottles that didn't make it.

Picked up some more of these at VA ABC for $15.99 each, while they are still available. This is my all-time favorite budget bourbon.

I have never seen this but always assumed it was the same as OE 7/101.   I notice the label indicates it is 'Bottled by Meadowlawn Distilling" in Bardstown, KY.  Any idea where it is actually distilled?

It's Heaven Hill, so it's basically the same thing as the discontinued OE 7/101, except it was cheaper, $13-16 vs. $20-25.  Virgin Bourbon has limited distribution, mostly in NC, but also in VA sometimes and some other states like AL. It's been replaced with a NAS/101 proof version, but there are still a lot of age stated ones available for now.

It’s been in Alabama for a long time, and started showing up in a few stores in Mississippi about a year ago.

Interesting about the barrels, I assumed they couldn’t calm it Bourbon as it was blend of bourbon from two different states.

No, it's because bourbon has to be aged in new, charred oak barrels.  The Tennessee whisky in the blend was aged in re-used barrels, hence the designation as American Whiskey.

That's the first time I've seen the Boone County Small Batch. Is this their own distillate? Is it meant to replace the 1833 MGP small batched stuff that used to be available?

 

 

 

 

My understanding is that it is a blend of 5-14 year sourced bourbon

Their bourbon will be a 2020 release,

I picked up a couple myself here in AL.. Good news is that I’m still seeing only AS versions only.

No earth-shattering pick ups here over the weekend.. but I found these at decent values and I’m a sucker for BIB’s and BP and cask strength offerings.. Not many rye’s in my stash so the Saz rye found a new home as well..

This is, unfortunately, the last hurrah for the last GOOD super low-budget bourbon out there, still under $15 OTD here in NC, but disappearing quickly. Amazing value and surprises anyone in a blind tasting. I can't imagine HH is making anything off of this so, logically, it gets cut...

Picked these up from a local micro distillery about 5 miles from the house. They make some excellent whiskey. Their gins are fantastic too, especially their barrel rested. It’s all done in small barrels so it’s young. We also have the Henneberry distillery about 4 miles from the house but their flagship is a flavored concoction that reminds me of cough syrup from when I was a kid in the 70’s.

That is a great day! I have been looking for CEHT Barrel Proof for 2 years now. Congrats on the nice scores.

Picked these up yesterday in Knoxville. Two different batches of Belle Meade Reserve for $54 each, EWSB 2011 for $27, Oregon Spirit BIB for $65, Taconic Barrel Proof for $58, Cumberland Cask Vanilla Bean for $82, and a Dartigalongue Armagnac from 1992 for $90. I was hoping to find some more 4R PS or KCSB picks (not that I need any), but didn't see anything available.

My dysfunctional relationship with VA ABC continued today.  We are very much back in love.

Haven't bought much this year, but ran into this and thought I'd grab one since I've never come across one before.

I think you'll like it.  My first bottle was good, but the second bottle is amazing.

I opened it last night, and my initial thoughts were "meh".  But by the end of the glass it was growing on me.  So we'll see how it goes when I have some future pours.

I really enjoy seeing these "out of season" Van Winkle or BTAC finds.  Very cool
