Higher proof blends


Recommended Posts

Are there any higher proof (and reasonably priced) blends? I used Nikka From the Barrel in some cocktails and it was great. But in looking around for more readily available and cheaper blends for cocktails, it doesn't seem there are many. I found Cutty Sark Prohibition at 100 proof, but my state doesn't seem to carry it anymore. I know there are a great many cask strength single malts, but was hoping someone here could point me to a blend that might fit the bill. Thanks!

Can you get Black Bull 12 near you? That is also 100 proof, and pretty good value at $45-55 or so.

This was gonna be my suggestion. Rather grain heavy but in my opinion it is to it's credit! Thoroughly good stuff.

Looks delicious, but I would be hard-pressed to call that a moderately priced cocktail mixer!

Thanks for the suggestions guys. Virginia doesn't have a listing for the Black Bull. Montgomery County does, but it is out of stock at $72. I'll keep an eye out for it in DC. The Compass Box products also seem hard to find, so I'm not holding out hope of finding a LE from them, but agree that does look delicious.

I missed out on that big, bad boy! It does look spectacular though.
