It took a few months to talk Mrs Sue into getting a barrel of 4R’s because back then Lake St. didn’t move a lot of SmB and SB 4R’s. That was a really good barrel, and once she got it in and saw how fa

Just poured the last drop from my final Lake Charles Lake Street Liquor FR SB Barrel Strength that I picked up while commuting there in 2014. I think LC Woody probably snagged a few of these as well,

Finished off one of the best barrel pics that I have been a part of. We were at Jim Beam when we picked this barrel and had a great day. This barrel only yielded a little over 60 bottles and they were

This isn’t even close to the most interesting thing happening today, but it happened.

Really darn good.

Arguably an equal rival for GTS.

That one has to hurt, unless you have one bunkered.  Which would make you very lucky.

I guess you’re not telling how you managed that.

I need support, for an empty box, of bottles.....

 

I moved recently (11/30). Great opportunity, need renovations but the new house is going to be amazing eventually. But, as I have unpacked and settled in for 5 weeks, I have finally come to the conclusion that one of my boxes of whiskey is just not here. How could it have happened? Could it still be hiding somewhere? Several searches tell me I’ll never know, and imm not going to find it. What was in the box? 12 bottles of Four Roses store picks. At least 4 of them were from my favorite barrel. Thankfully I had one bottle from that barrel in another box, but this will go down as by far my worst loss of whiskey.

Oy!  Hopefully it eventually reveals itself.  Did you use movers to transport your stuff?

I only had friends and family moving me in. However, the sellers hadn’t moved out on time, so there was overlap for a few days where they were in and out, and they were getting divorced and each had their own set of professional movers. So, a variety of people could have grabbed that box which is why I am now assuming it’s a goner

Ay caramba! Phone calls would be made escalating to doors kicked in if I were looking at a similar circumstance. Good luck!

I would tell your realtor, who would tell theirs, who would tell the sellers.  Still may come to anything, but it's worth a try at least.

Flahute has said it many times, and he is spot on.  Four Roses is churning out some fabulous standard Single Barrel right now.

Finished of my bottle of Larceny, always have some Larceny in your heart. Part of my nefarious plan to make room in my liquor cabinet for the ginormous bottle of Willet in the bullpen.

Not a classy picture, but it’s going in the trash can. I Really like HM10y, especially when it’s a good one.  A6D34EEC-004F-48FD-8AC1-504333FF7138.thumb.jpeg.c3c8ef9a3910c32c506e8518e15829c9.jpeg

 A healthy final pour to sip on while cleaning the house a bit.

The delicious aromas from the glass are only bested by the LCD Soundsystem album playing in the background.

 

Sad to see this one go, but knowing me, I probably have another.

Wish I'd gotten in on SAOS when they still were putting out 11 yo MGP stuff.  The new 5yo MGP releases are pretty good though, IMO.

Over the years you’ve shown your balance game to be very strong.  😁

Today saw the last pour of the Lot B I opened to celebrate our 12yr anniversary back in October. Wasn't amazing but it wasn't bad either. Off to open the next bottle and trying to think about which bottle from the bunker I will use for the 13yr anniversary this year.

Truth!

One of our locals got one last year that just totally turned me right on.

Drank the hell out of that bottle.

It’s midnight and my wife decided to have a dance party with her brother in our living room.

Who am I to object?

She even brought out her LED party light from her old DJing days.

 

Oh, and this 4R PS OESQ bit the dust just now 🤷‍♂️

That's an easy one, D. - Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 13yr Rye!  All we have to do is find you one (was this a hint???)!   🥳
