Couple bottle kills this weekend, Booker's Kitchen Table and a Knob Creek 14+ year store pick from my local chain.

Since opening this bottle, it's been hard to drink, the ethanol just obscured the flavor and made it less than enjoyable. I've poured out more than one pour.

First time in a couple/few months, over half the bottle gone and suddenly it's good. Ethanol dialed way back, cherry syrup and banana flavors on the palate. Not outstanding, but certainly enjoyable now.

Traded both my other picks, which are both supposed to be much tastier than this one. I may live to regret it, but life's too short for bourbon regrets.

Very interesting Tom, I passed on a lot of those (and actually got one, long story but I don't expect to ever actually receive it) but the ones I've tried were predominantly ethanol, which is why I never bothered to shell out the $80-90 for one, glad this one is turning around.

Has anybody tried anything fun with this new honey barrel finished trend? I had a sample of the original BM honey (really good but not worth $1k or whatever secondary is asking), got some from a VA distiller (Ragged Branch) and have a sample of the Binny's Starlite Rye Honey barrel coming in from a friend. Typically I'm not big on finishes but something about the honey impact gets me interested. Next weekend a local distillery who puts out a lot of MGP is releasing a wheat whiskey finished in honey, they've done a few 8 year toasted wheat bottles so I'm hoping this will be 8 year as well, looking forward to picking a couple up

I have not seen any that were honey finished around here - but I also did look specifically either.

The SB picks around here went down to 100 proof last year so maybe that was in response to a bit much on the barrel proof.

Went down to the lake for a couple days and stumbled upon a bottle of New Riff that I picked up this week. Have not seen one up in the KC area before so a chance to give it a shot.

Ben, I have heard that the Belle Meade Honey is head over heels better than any other honey barreled whiskey. I have heard some good things about the Starlite though...I am curious to hear your thoughts on that sample because I've seen that at Binny's in the past and wanna know if I should grab one if it comes back again.

Jay, I am a fan of the New Riff. The BiB stuff is good, some of the single barrels even better.

Grabbed a couple of owner's barrel selects at my B&M. I've never had either of them. I believe they both use MGP bourbons.

I must be getting old, the Dalton label looks like it says 70% Corn, 28% Wheat, 18% Malt ... that extra % makes it delicious I am sure

LOL, it's the "old-timey" font. It's 70/20/10.

Nice! If you find some MGP you like buy it up, it's only gonna get more scarce/expensive for anything over 3 years

Managed to track this down on Friday, only had a little taste but I liked it, gonna revisit soon

Congrats on the pickups, James and Ben!

Anxious to hear your thoughts on the Nulu, James, I see it a lot but know very little.
