What Bottle Did You Open Today? 2020

Recommended Posts

JakeySnakes

Opened the JDSBBP and it's every bit as good as I've heard (read). Rich butterscotch, brown sugar, maple syrup, pipe tobacco, and some chocolate covered banana on the finish. May grab another while it's still on sale at my LS.

Popped an OF 9y. This is my first time with this one. Really good.

I need to revisit one of these blind. I can't get past the name. Just seeing JD on a bottle makes me taste rotten bananas.

I was right there with you before I finally succumbed and bought a bottle. While it wasn't a favorite of mine, there was definitely a much better taste and finish to it than I had anticipated. No banana!

I loved the 9 year even more than the 11 year - just a great pour from start to finish.   Very elegant wheater.

I have tried samples...but I knew what it was so my perception was likely pre-formed in my head.

I will agree/disagree in parts. I very much enjoy JDBP, but do agree there are banana notes in  the ones I  have tried.  And as Clueby stated that note is more like a real banana as opposed to 1792 where I frequently get a strong artificial Runt Banana Candy flavor.   That artificial banana has turned me off of most of the 1792 line.   The JD banana flavors have been more like a bananas foster or similar dessert with caramel or brown sugar.  However, I can also see it being possible to get ripe or overripe banana and would agree that I would not enjoy that flavor without the brown sugar/caramel.

Banana Puddin'!!

 

I don't often drink Jack Daniels but when I do it's always JD SBBP.

Purchased and opened a bottle of Beam single barrel and a bottle of Early Times bonded. Loving the ET, a lot of vanilla, brown sugar and dried fruit in this one.

Opened a fresh HMcK10 last night.  This is my first bottle of this in a couple years since all the hype made it disappear.  Picked this up a few months ago for maybe $31ish.  That same day I had been to another store that wanted $100?!?!

Anyway, this is a good barrel. Not mind blowing, but a solid well-made bourbon that I'd gladly buy again..at $31ish.

Cracked after picking up yesterday while watching Reservoir Dogs last night.

Like the matching glass. What's the damage on this one? $130ish?  I have avoided the WR limited Edition bottles thus far.

I think I paid $100 for it.

This was the second national release of it (2019 I think).

I probably won’t buy any more of them, especially with OF barrel proof store picks coming soon.

That's the info I needed.  My local is scheduled to do an off premise OF BP pick from samples.  I am hoping it will happen while I am still working at home so I can shoot over and partake.

I'm a big fan of this as well though I've only tried the first release. Like you, I'll not be tempted to buy another at that price especially with OFBP coming down the pike.

Try to make that happen. The one we picked for my local was VERY good.

Opened up this one, to enjoy and share with my Brother. We are getting to spend time together for the first time since January.  Dang Corona virus. 

 

Happy Memorial Day. 🇺🇸

This is a beautiful Bourbon.  It tastes even better in my Straight Bourbon glencairn, gifted to me. 

 

Cheers

Hell yes it is.

It is one of the few 4 Roses bottles that was delicious to me immediately upon opening.  Most of them seem to take some time to blossom if you will...
