What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today (Winter 2019)

Recommended Posts

Stopped into a small local store today to try and pick up some stuff to support them, and picked up this Maker’s Slam Dunk bottle.  First one I’ve ever seen on a shelf.  I suppose, since there’s no March Madness this year to keep me entertained for the next 3 weeks,  this slam dunk will have to do... 🤪

That's awesome.  

I keep hearing (on the distillery tour) that the employees do this occasionally.

I've never seen one either in the store.

Another Rare Breed.  And a second butcher stop to pick up a brisket and hot dogs.  I am ready to hunker down.

Very nice Joe. FWIW, according to my source, MM no longer does slam dunks. Enjoy! 
 

Biba! Joe

A 1.75 of EWBIB (in case I have to hunker down)  and an Elijah Craig Rye. First time I've seen it.

VOB 90, first time I've seen it.

I have the 80, 84, and 100. Didn't really care for the 80, my wife snatched my 84 and drank it all.....

at $14, I feel so dirty buying just one, is this what it feels like purchase fireball???

I held off pre-ordering that one until I get a chance to try it first. I want to make sure I like it enough over the regular small batch to justify the higher price. Please share your thoughts on it once you crack one of them open.

I snagged a bottle of the rye, a couple of weeks ago.  It's pretty good.

Let me preface this by saying I'm a pretty big fan of 4R. I like the SmBS a lot. It's a complete different blend of recipes than the regular SmB.

VOB 90 is pretty good. 

 

When the 100 isn't available,  it'll do the trick.

Not quite bourbon, and not the greatest haul of dusties.  But for the price and nostalgia purposes, I couldn’t pass these up.  ‘78 thru ‘81 & ‘83 bottle dates.

I agree.  I really enjoy the 90s a lot more than I think I will when I pick one up, which is a couple times per year.  There’s a certain no frills, common man, always dependable, charm to it that just makes me happy when I drink it.  A solid everyday drinker.  It’s existence made me pine much less as the 100 proof lost its credentials over the past few years.

I don't recall ever having the 80, but the 86, 90 and 100 are all decent whiskies that you should never feel dirty about buying. Like FRYL, they're not spectacular but always a good solid pour at a great price.

As I've said before, me likee FRSmBS - but don't pay more than MSRP ($59.99) for it.  I've seen it up here (finally) for $60-70 - still drinking last year's stash from Bardstown/Lexington trip.   😉

It showed up here for as low as $53.99 in some places and as high as $69.99 in others.  I wasn't a buyer.  I tried it shortly after release and wasn't a fan. I may give it a shot in the future after all the chaos dies down.
