Default Re: The Bourbon Thread!!

Ran down to the city to pick up a couple bottles I had long ago paid for. A different Tumbling Dice Heavy Rye SiB store pick and a Old Haymarket 7+ year SiB, Both in excess of 117 proof. The TD is 4+ year MGP, and the OH is Heaven Hill.

Then the story got good. Stopped in a corner convenience store heading back to the highway to go home. They probably had 20 total bottles of hard liquor in the place, all behind the secure counter. And one was a Booker's Tommy's batch (17-01). You don't find old Booker's like that very often, right?

Wrong. Today I stopped at some dump liquor store on the way home from an appointment, and found a 18-02 (Backyard BBQ).

Being that I'm not going bourbon hunting tomorrow, guess the hat trick ain't coming.




The KC is a 9 year pick from the Windy City Smokeout in 2018, and was a bargain.

"Just going in to pick up a bottle for a friend"

"Not even going to look in the case, there's probably nothing good in there anyways"

These are things I told myself last night, but I did look in the case, and there was something good. I blame Tom

I blame Booker Noe. It's easy, he's dead.

Stopped by the liquor store on my way home from the office this morning, they never have good stuff in the case in the mornings but they do sometimes put out some old picks they found in the back. Got lucky today and snagged another bottle of their 150 proof light whiskey, I heard from a good source that once all the high aged MGP bourbon got bought up everybody turned to the lesser desired whiskeys (wheat, light, etc) and bought those up too, mostly brokers who will resell you a barrel for a heavy markup. Future me is going to be glad current me dropped $45 on a backup bottle, it's surprisingly tasty and 13 years old

Resized the pic for you, Bobby, it was huge.

13 year! You'll have to give us a review.
