How about Bulleit Bourbon and the Jefferson Bourbons? I also haven't tried any 4 Roses yet either.

Cracked the Stagg Jr. last night. Incredibly complex, and super drinkable neat even at 132 proof.

Exac…..err...correct.

Saw single bottles of George T. Stagg in two different stores yesterday. First was $549. Second was $699. Needless to say, I did NOT come home with a new bottle of bourbon. The guy at the first store told me he sold his single bottle of Van Winkle 10 Year for $549 the day before.

Last nights "within my budget" pour:

F that on the GTS. Also F that on the Van Winkle. I can think of 10 bottles I'd rather have for the same total

I'm with you, Ben, that's why I came home empty handed.

I'm looking forward to what you pick us up on your trip this weekend. :

Went old school last night and enjoyed a bottle of Wild Turkey 101. First time in 20 some years, but it was pretty good.

I was actually surprised to hear that Russell Reserve was a Wild Turkey product, one of their small batch, top shelf items.

Went camping over the weekend, decided to pick up a bottle of something I have sealed at home to help me hold off breaking that one open



Sad to report that I left with about two pours left in the bottle, but the guy I gave it to will certainly enjoy them. Have a hard time describing this one, felt juicier than most and each sip packed full of flavor. Could be the ABV sweet spot for me, need to find some more around 115
