Nice, 120 proof is right up my alley I'm going to have to give that one a try.

Do let us know what you think though.

Been real curious about the KC SB. A lot of bourbon snobs look down on Jim Beam products, (JB, KC, Basil, Bookers, etc). While regular JB sucks, I like KC. It has a different character that I like.

Peer pressured myself into buying another bottle, since it was Derby weekend (along with a few cigars ). Drinking it now, Elijah Craig 12yr. Been wanting it for awhile. Good stuff right out of the bottle, especially for the price, under $30 here. Tough to beat for the age and price, although Weller 12yr may have it beat.

Picked up a bottle of Eagle Rare single barrel that was cask selected by the local retailer for a one off bottling. Bigger than the regularly Eagle Rare 10yr. Good like the regular Eagle Rare with a little more of everything.

See a number of people mention Bulleit bourbon. I have only tried it once or twice and it didn't stand out particularly but their Rye is outstanding. Delicious sipping rye.

First time I strolled in here. Like a nice bourbon from time to time. Usually run with KC SB as was anotated above. lol.

My most recent score required the purchase of a litre bottle fo malbu rum to bribe my gf's sister into picking up two bottles. Should have them in hand in two weeks when she comes out this way for a visit. Can't wait.


First Texas Bourbon.

Be sure and let us know how that Garrison Brothers is. Hopefully in a few years it will be spread through out Texas and not just in the hill country.

Well even though I live in Clear Lake the Heights Cigar Lounge is my new home away from home. The owners are cool about BYOB so maybe you can get a sip of it yourself some time.

Thurs 19th at 4:30 till 8pm at the latest, closing time. Just didn't advertise it here as I got zero interest last time. I won't have the Garrison by then though.

Probably been asked before, but can anyone get there hands on some other Buffalo Trace Blends? Only have BT and the White Dog Mash in GA. GA just seems to be out of the loop in the distribution.

Eagle Rare 10yr is here as well as some of the Antique Collection. Matt_N-GA and I found some Sazerac, Weller and Stagg. You need to check Greens in downtown, Tower or Total Wine. They seem to be the only ones in the distribution chain.

I didn't think Basil Hayden was worth the price. Lots of better bourbons out there.

Just doesn't have that good edge like some bourbons. Very smooth though.

Yeah I have seen the ER and the Weller. I have even seen the Eagle Rare 17yr. I didn't think that was BT. I would love to get my hands on their single batch sampler.

Picked up Very Old Barton 100 proof 6 year. SOLID for $12. Now my go to budget bourbon. I'd say it's up there with some twice its price or more. Not amazing, but a solid bourbon. Nice flavor, finishes a little bland though, which makes you want to drink more to get the flavor back, hah.

Agreed, it was worth trying but that's about it.




What BT bourbons are you specifically looking for?

The Eagle Rare 17 was the one I was most interested in and couldn't find it. Two years ago I ran into the experimental stuff in SC but this year I called a bunch of stores and no one had received any. You may want to stay on top of Greens and TW in Greenville, not a bad day trip from your neck of the woods.
