Be a nice project if everyone who likes bourbon enough to post in this thread (and is going to the shack) would take one bottle off of a list and bring it to the SHACK. We could try and test that way and be sure that all the good stuff was available. And get hammered in the bargain, I'd bet. maybe that's NOT a good idea, lol.

Default Re: The Bourbon Thread!!

hahah, we're not going to go to the Wiki again are we? I read how that turned out, lol. From what I have read in the last few days, the 4 Roses sounds like a good pick, as does that Pappy van Winkle or Rip van Pappy, or Dick van Patten something or other. I have not had Buffalo Trace yet, the girls were offering T-shirts and 3 free hot wings to anyone who ordered some at the Blue Monkey, but it was not enough to get me off my Turkey. I think the main prob was they were discount models or something. They were hot enough to look good only after a generous imbibation of Buffalo Trace. Clever.

--------------Looking at that list, it seems that Buffalo Trace produces all the stuff you guys like alot. I rectum I can be counted on for a bottle of Eagle Rare and a Rare Breed.
So put me down for those. Remember, it doesn't do any good if we all bring the same $hi+, lol. Well, actually, it will do ME fine.

As did I. I grabbed a 1.75 of that and a 1.75 of Ciroc vodka for my upcoming vacation for the 4th with the family.

On another note, I also made my first ever batch of bacon infused bourbon this evening. I'll update everyone with how it is in the next couple days after I try it. Word it if you mix 2oz of bacon bourbon, 1/2 oz of maple syrup, and a dash or two of bitters and pour over ice it makes a mean morning vacation cocktail.

This was my first Bourbon purchase aside from Makers Mark and Knob Creek. I had a hard time deciding between the Eagle Rare 10 and Elijah Craig 12. I figured I'd try the Eagle Rare and then pick up the Elijah Craig. The store that I visited didn't have anything rare or I would have picked up something special.

Just got an update, Jefferson's Reserve Presidential Select bottles next week! Should start shipping out soon after. 3100 cases will be produced, then no more. The bottling reads 17 yr, but it's actually very close to 18 from what I've been told.

Had my first two glasses of Rittenhouse Rye 100* BIB last night.... This may have stopped me from writing off Rye altogether...and at $15 a bottle....I think this will be a staple in my rotation.
