    Picked up the New Riff a month or so ago, hated it ( sorry) even had a few others try it and no one has liked it so far.

    Currently in stock at the house:
    The Balvenie is amazing with just a slight smoked peat.
    The Glen is good but nothing amazing, very rosy.
    The Bulleit is a great bourbon with a very unique flavor.

    I’ve had several iterations of the Booker’s and they never disappoint. They are a little on the steeper side in terms of price but there’s a lot of complexity to them and a bottle will last me quite awhile. Currently on the hunt for a bottle of the first 2020 release.

    At $87 your buddy is right on in terms of price. Most places that aren’t charging secondary market prices, will have Booker’s for between $80-$90. If you pick up a bottle, you’ll have to let me know what you think.

    Look for store picks on the single barrel KC. They tend to pull from a more aged barrel, but keep the 9 year age statement due to the labeling.

    Thanks for the heads up, here in WI we have Pick N Save brand grocery stores, I've seen the metal labels on them there before.

    When I first started drinking whiskey I read thewhiskeyjug.com because I had no idea on differences between stuff. Sometimes I look back on the reviews to see what my thoughts on taste compares. Anyway I was reading his old review on Bulleit (2014) as I have a bottle now, does anyone know if it's still made by four roses? Thought that was pretty interesting.

    This explains Bulleit and the sources a little.

    http://bourbonr.com/blog/untold-history-of-the-bulleit-brand/

    Pretty sure they are fully distilling their own sauce nowadays...I like Bulleit rye, but their bourbon just isnt my jam...at all.

    Not sure how I missed this thread! Lots of great bourbons out there and living in Kentucky means most of them are within 45 minutes of the house!

    Opened this Four Roses SB. Really good bourbon and you can find it for $30-$35 most places on sale.

    Nice haul!

    I'm interested to hear what you think of the Balvenie 14 year.

    Woodford Reserve is an awesome bourbon IMO.

    No need to apologize. The beauty of this hobby is taste is subjective and people can enjoy different drams. New Riff is garnering a following, but if someone does not like the flavor profile of rye, this would not be their jam. More for me.

    Loved the vanilla/caramel tones in the 21yr, a lovely dram that is. :hattip:

    The Balvenie 14 Caribbean Cask is awesome. It’s a regular in my home bar. Super smooth. Sweet but not offensive. Very subtle hints of spice from the rum casks. It’s about $70/750ml. Well worth it.
    I’m not a fan of the regular Woodford Reserve Bourbon. This Double Oaked though is also a regular in my home bar. Lots of oak and vanilla, brown sugar and leather. $58/750ml.

    Been collecting for a bit... need to drink faster as keeping these fresh is the hardest part.

    Prefer the Elmer out of these. Although the eagle is a barrel pick and is the best Eagle I’ve had.

    Really enjoying this Old Forrester Single barrel, tremendous value.

    4 Roses single and IW 15 both good. Don’t feel the love for McKenna for the attention it’s getting.

    I do like Lagavulin 16 a lot. Working on adding more to the scotch collection.

    Not whiskey but my current favorite rum and love making old fashioned with this.

    Nice! My local Total Wine got a ~15 year old Knob Creek pick last year too, I’m enjoying the last of it right now.

    This just came in the mail. The regular Elijah Craig is probably my favorite budget bourbon. Excited to try this one.

    The current 'Rona situation has been depleting the liquor cabinet at a staggering pace.

    But I try and keep most of the staples in rotation.

    The GF always has some random wine in the mix along with her disgusting cinnamon stuff. But I try and make up for it with decent brown water.
