I just found Russell Reserve Rye 6yr. Pretty darn good stuff. Seemed a little better once I put a couple of ice cubes in it. There seem to be just too many burbons/whiskeys that I haven't tried and apparently I like them all

Picked up a bottle of this EH Taylor. It is supposed to be on par with Pappy's. Anybody tried this yet?

I would say good score. Some folks say it is better than Pappy's. I would say that one isn't better than the other. Both are excellent in their own right and it is always a good find.

Default Re: The Bourbon Thread!!

Went into one of my usual stores to pick up some beer and saw this in the cabinet



I was going to stop buying bourbon for a while after the Pappy release but couldn't resist since it was close to retail price. I asked the worker if they had anymore of the BTAC release and he said they only had the Pappy 20yr that was next to my bottle. They were selling it for $699!! Laughed at the guy and told him I'll pass. They had a bottle of 15yr last week and I guess some poor sap bought it at their asking price ($499).

I'll have to go back in a few days because I think they have more of the BTAC release but are just putting them out as the previous bottle sells

This ever happen to you? I'm enjoying some Knob Creek single barrel while smoking a cigar. I have a glass of sprite (to cut the nicotine from the cigar) and a glass of water (to cut the bourbon after all it's 120 proof) So, I proceed to cut the bourbon with sprite! Now I have a lemon/lime flavored glass of bourbon!

Waste of alcohol otherwise!

Interesting. Yamazaki and Hakushu aren't that bad actually. Drink them a lot when I am on the road.

Not a Beam fan anyway, although people like their Makers and that flavored Pinnacle vodka stuff.

Nice little payout for sure...

These liquor threads are experiencing a re-vitalization, obviously owing to the fact that propane is through the roof.
