I absolutely agree wit you, Andrew, and at 117 proof it's right in my wheelhouse.

Opened "Beaten Biscuits" batch last night. Started neat, then a couple drops of water to open it up. It's definitely my least favorite of the 2019 batches. That being said, it's still better than 80% of the other bourbons on my bar. ;)

Another great affordable bourbon that just got to my state is Old grand dad 114. did a blind taste of 4 bourbons with 50+ people and it tied with OE7 for 1st.

Have you picked up a bookers 2020-01 grannys batch? talk about peanuts!

Only 8 days left to bid on a Pappy pack benefiting a local food bank put on by one of the big liquor stores here:

Old rip Van Winkle 10-year, 2016
Van Winkle Special Reserve 12-year, 2018
Van Winkle Family Reserve 13-year rye, 2018
Pappy Van Winkle 15-year, 2017
Pappy Van Winkle 20-year, 2017
Pappy Van Winkle 23 year, 2017

If you want to bid and need a local to pick it up I'm happy to help, you can even choose which bottle you give me for the services. Just beat the top bid of $9k :tu

It's gonna go a LOT higher, Ben. Crap, I'd buy it all for 9K, sell the 15, 20 and 23 for 9K and get the rest for free. :lr

Really? PVW 12? I'm thinking a Old Grandad 114. :)

Washed down a disappointing pour of Buffalo Trace with a pour each of two favorite ryes.

Two pours of each last night. And I didn't even stumble up the stairs at bedtime. :al :lr

Picked up a bottle of Rittenhouse Rye on Saturday to make Boulevardiers. Half a bottle later I think I got the recipe down :tu

Re: The Bourbon Thread!!
 
Rittenhouse any good on its own, Ben?

Yesterday, some KC Cask Strength, followed by some High West Double Rye.

I had some Knob CS last night in the pool while digesting some delicious ribs! Great minds think alike!

I had a little pour and liked it, but at that point I was a few deep, I'll need to revisit. In general I'm not a huge rye guy but I'm open to keep trying :)

Definitely have a couple ryes you might like, Ben, when you coming to the Midwest? :al -(P

A couple pours last night:

I'm confident you do :)

Just put that bottle of Booker's Rye away for another year or two, I'll put the midwest on my list of places to travel to after I make up all the other trips I've missed recently

I promise there will be a larger selection of Booker's than any other one bourbon, Ben. I'm sitting on 8 different open ones, and backups of a couple favorites. ;)

I've got cigars and other vices too! ;)
