Finally finished off the bottle of Troy & Sons Heirloom Moonshine this past weekend. Opened my bottle of Larceny at last night's poker game.

WOW!!!

Great flavor, and a very long finish. Worth finding and buying a bottle!!

One of my favorites, though it's the only BT bourbon I've ever tried.

I just gave the last couple glasses-worth away to a good friend who hasn't tried Eagle Rare yet. Wasn't able to make the Super Bowl party he was throwing, so sent it with someone else to give to him as a surprise. hopefully it didn't get drank in transit.

Picked up a bottle of Jefferson's Reserve since the darn ABC stores locally don't have Angels Envy, despite it being on the ABC catalog.

Yes. I like JB Black Label and Larceny better. Very worth the price here. About $22 if I recall correctly..

It comes highly recommended by Peter (pnoon) as a good bourbon at a very reasonable price. Not available in Bama that I've found.

Kind've new to the Bourbon game. Drank good beer after work to wind down for years, now trying Bourbon. One or two drinks instead of countless beers...

Just finished my first bottles of Woodford Reserve and Larceny over the past month...Now on to a Henry McKenna Single Barrel. Really smooth as far as I know it. Almost as good as The Four Roses SB I've had on occasion.

Any more suggestions for a rookie?

I love Angels Envy rye (finished in rum barrels) and their bourbon (finished in port barrels) is also very good.

Scored this bottle of ORVW 10yr yesterday

Glad I saw this thread. Been reading through it all. I am not much of a drinker but I do enjoy a nice drink with a good cigar. Usually I only drink when at my local B&M event. Is there a general consensus on what a good bourbon would be to start off with? I want to buy a bottle or two to have on hand for the house. Also trying to get into Rum but I know I like both. Just don't know the difference between them all. Need a starting point and want to avoid anything nasty out there. Thanks!
