I've heard good stuff about Rabbit Hole but haven't had a chance to try yet, I'll put it on the list

Thanks Kyle. I've seen Rabbit Hole at some of the Binny's stores, but was hoping to find it in a bar (no time soon I guess ) and try before buying.

Last night's pours. When your first pour is at 100 proof, there's no where to got but up. Way up!

You inspired me to have a pour of EH Taylor Small Batch last night. That stuff never disappoints, I was listening to a local podcast doing a review of a few different Taylors and one guy mentioned that a distributor said they are always out of stock because "if you can get it, why would you need anything else?"

Makes sense

Definitely one of my go-to BiBs, Ben. Locally, haven't seen anything but SB, would love to run into a bottle of Barrel Proof but not holding my breath.

Black Carl made last night enjoyable, so enjoyable I forgot the picture 'til after I slurped it all up. (Phrasing).

I'd buy a single barrel in a second. Really want to try the 18 year that's coming out this year, but I think we both know how likely that will be

Me too, even though I know the barrels can vary widely. I hadn't even heard about the 18 year, but figure it will be like finding a virgin at Planned Parenthood.

The release name is "18 Year Marriage." I heard it being described by as hard to find as two 18 year olds getting married and staying together for 18 years

Four Roses Small Batch and Single Barrel are both quite good and can be had for in the mid-$30 range.
