So damn the bad luck, I need to pick up two bottles of Booker's. Not because I enjoy it, of course, but only to help my wife get her crafts organized.



That's awesome! Trying to figure out a way to make my wife come to the same realization!

Stopped by Binny's perhaps the best store in the world, for some beers for tonight's Cub's game and to get a new bourbon for sipping.

Usually I go for something new or more out there, but a bottle of Maker's Mark for $22 is hard to pass up!!

I picked up a couple of "ribbon holders" for my wife. The bottles of bourbon inside are a bonus for me.

Right now I'm sitting in rural Wisconsin on holiday, sipping some Woodford Reserve and smoking a Peterson Meer packed with GLP Gaslight.

It is a sublime Autumn tradition that clears the head and steadies the heart.

Delicious

You Yankees do some things right. ( OK so the pipe is Irish - I can live with that)

That's actually pretty cool and a nice way to reuse an item that has character.

I've kept a box as well, so I think our house needs stackable spice racks.

---------------------------------------------------------
Saturday at a poker tourney I had a few fingers of W.L. Weller Antique. Always a good pour and some ice chilled the 107.

For the Sunday night game I cracked open a bottle of Ezra 101. This was good before I put in some ice. When I drink on the rocks, I always need the first to be neat. The proof comes without a punch, the nose is nice, good thick feel to the bourbon with some nutty & vanilla notes. The finish was warm and peppery without a burn. This bourbon delivers without a hefty $$.

Started drinking and buying Bourbon about a year ago.
Many of these bottles were recent gifts.
My favorites are Bulliet, Angels Envy, Four Roses Small batch.
I also really like the Bowman Brothers.

I am very novice when it comes to bourbon. I am more of a scotch and rum drinker. I ruined bourbon for myself with Jim Beam. However, recently my interest in bourbons was piqued when I stumbled on Lexington bourbon. Not high dollar, but IMO the flavor is much better than Jim Beam (which is all I have to compare it to) and it seems much less harsh.

With that said, I had Jim Beam rye with my brother-in-law, and I thought it was pretty fantastic--but it probably is just un-honed ability to taste.

Default Re: The Bourbon Thread!!

For those who like Bulleit bourbon (and rye), and belong to Costco,
check out your local store for this great deal - hopefully it's there -
buy three 1.75 liters of Bulleit bourbon and/or rye, get $7 off each ($21 total)

Just purchased 2 bourbons & a rye (1.75 L) for $27 each!
That's about the cost of a 750ml bottle in most local stores.

Yup, that's where my mind went as well. Us Upstate NY boys are always thinking of ways to keep warm during those cold winters!

Looking For A Very Sweet, Smooth, Relatively Cheap Bourbon That I Can Drink Straight. Similar To Zaya Rum. I've Tried Maker's, Blanton's, Eagle Rare 10, Angel's Envy, But They're Not Sweet And Smooth Enough For My Taste. I've Heard "Pappy's" Is The Best, But Very Difficult & Expensive To Obtain. Suggestions? Thanks!
