Steph - I mean Santa - hit up the B&M for a couple of the owner's barrel selects, plus a Heaven's Door bourbon-rye blend.

Nice gifts, James, curious to hear about the Barrel.

Speaking of gifts, an outrageous one showed up on my porch yesterday. It's the oldest bottle of Booker's I have yet to open, but I figured it's a Christmas gift, I need to open it for Christmas. It's outstanding. Cheers and heartfelt thanks to my "Secret Santa".

Did the Noah's Mill for Christmas Eve, solid but the 1920 for Christmas evening was a step above.

Good news out of Kentucky this week that looks like it will allow shipping bourbon to other states...of course Kansas is not one that allows spirits to be shipped but maybe that will change in time. I am sure the first few release of Kentucky only bottlings that ship will go quickly.

Last Pour of 2020, first time ever (possibly only) drinking Stagg Jr I scored in a trade from Tom, this bourbon lived up to hype. Long delicious finish! Thanks Tom and looking forward to trying the other samples when the times right!!

So glad you enjoyed it, Gabe! On a related note, I smoked the Robusto T you sent me and it was easily one of my Top 3 cigars of 2020.



Here was my first pour of 2021. A real bottle killer...

Wow top 3!! Glad you are enjoying everything. As for the EC C920 I’ve been searching high and low for it and finally found it in NJ but they slapped a $90 price tag on, in PA state liquor stores it’s $65 but impossible to find. Was I smart to pass or should I have pulled out the credit card?

I haven't paid more than $69, Gabe, I've lucked into it at stores that don't mark it up much. I'd offer to grab you one if I see one, but not sure if it would make sense with shipping costs of around $15. If I find one at $59 (rather than $69 or higher) again I will grab it. Yours if you want it, if not I never mind having a backup.

These Knob Creek 9 year SiB picks at Binny's have been a steal at $49. So good,,, sure, I prefer the 15 year ones, but those are tougher and tougher to find.

Picked up some essentials today, couldn’t find a full bottle of 101 so I went with a half, they really couldn’t put it in glass?

Nice grabs! I just finished a bottle of the OF 1920 three days ago and need to get another one. I really enjoyed it which I found funny because I don't care for the "regular" OF at all.

Nice pickups Gabe! I don't care what type of container that 101 is in I love the stuff

Tom how was the C920? One of my groups did a "vote your top 3 of 2020" game and A120 came in as the most common answer, I looked around and realized that I had one sealed bottle and apparently hadn't tried it (I do a bad job of keeping track of what's open). I found a guy with an extra for $75 that I'm picking up today, so I cracked the A120 last night and holy crap that's good. Followed it up with a pour of B519 and they are night and day different bourbons. I might need to see what other ones I have open and do a bigger flight

I think that A120 has been my favorite of the 2020 batches, Ben, but I must say C920 was close. Neither touch the C919 for me, but they're all so good.

That B519 just didn't do it for me after trying the higher proof stuff. Had a second B519 that I flipped for an A117 that's pure pepper. Yet I still prefer it to the B519.
