Bulleit Barrel strength for 39.99 seems like a good deal yes?
Detlef Schrempf times up, sorry. Paying now.
Yes - that’s the cheapest I’ve seen it.
I appreciate it sorry I missed out! Appreciate the gesture though!
Yes and it's not bad.
I can try to go back later or tomorrow if you really want it.
It’s not a huge deal, my wife would tell you I have too many bottles as it is. But if you do find yourself back over there I’ll take it but don’t go out of your way.
Let me head back there in a bit after I food shop. Realizing that the 79.99 is exactly MSRP so seems like a good price given the great reviews so far. I may try to pick up 2 more to send you one and ask if anyone else wants one. I really appreciate the comradery in this thread and how people help each other out finding bottles and shipping stuff when it’s difficult to find something in your area.
Awesome just shoot me a pm if you end up being able to snag it, and we’ll get everything sorted out.
Is this any good?
If that 25 wasn’t photoshopped, then yes.
Holy shit, is that yours?
That’s the only bottle they could make out of the barrel.
I did the same double take. At my aunt and uncles house. My uncle is a food writer and critic and gets hooked up. Had no idea a Willet 25 year rye even existed
Preston Van Winkle talked about how they don't go past 23 years on their bourbon (aside from a bit of luck where they got some good juice out of some 25 year old barrels last year) and said that anything past that and you really risk it being a complete waste. I've read that a few 27 year old bourbons out there just taste like wood, but then others like Heaven Hill 27 are absolutely outstanding. Older doesn't always mean better, but if you get a good one that is that old, they're damn good.
I have the 3 year, I get the feeling that bottle is better than mine
Someone hooked your uncle up with nearly a $2,000 bottle, hope he gave them a good review...
Kids were being the worst tonight, poured the first thing I grabbed from my shelf. Ended up pouring a double of Jefferson's Reserve. Forgot how good this stuff is.
Huge fan. It is pricey but awesome.
I need to grab a bottle of the regular Jefferson before I finish this bottle and compare them. I know I really liked Jefferson for a $30 bottle, but I want to compare to see if this one was worth the extra $ or not.
He's buddies with the guy. Got a ham along with the bottle too
Tell him he can keep the ham if you can have the Rye.
Has anyone had the Jefferson's Twin Oaked Barrel?
Fuck me, I need friends like his uncle.
I haven't had that one yet, but I've liked all of the Jefferson I have tried.
Jefferson’s Reserve is like a better version of Blanton’s for me. Big fan, love it neat
Same. There’s quite a bit of difference between Reserve and regular. The only Jefferson I never cared for is the Ocean product.
The first and second voyages were incredible to me but after that it went straight downhill
Definite no on the Weller SR. I see it fairly frequently in 750ml for $20 in some of the rural areas I drive for work.
Any recommendations on bartender mixing kit stuff? Looking for anything from brand recs to what tools I'll need to start
It’s pretty over price but I like it too.
So I just opened a J Mattingly Batch 7. Most disappointed I’ve been in a bourbon in a long time. Shit isn’t just bad, it’s legitimately gross. Tastes like moonshine, no depth at all. The only thing I can compare it to is a whiskey I had recently from a local “distillery” that was 4 months old.
Dude has been churning out batches seemingly non-stop, and I was wondering how tf he was getting his hands on so much quality, well aged bourbon. Turns out, he wasn’t.
Who is J Mattingly
His stuff is expensive too, but it’s been banned on multiple groups due to claims he was artificially boosting prices and that he was using flavorings in his juice.
I haven’t had any of his stuff but I saw a comment on one of his bottles that said it tasted like butterscotch and asshole or something to that effect.
Honestly, the whole flavorings thing is why I’m so surprised. I figured even if it’s doctored, it should at least be delicious. This shit tastes like the white dog that I aged in a mini oak barrel for 2 weeks at Christmas
No.ill buy it from you....
His name is Jeff Mattingly and he owns a whiskey blending and bottling outfit, I think it goes by the name of Bourbon 30 or something like that. He pumps out a ton of limited release blends that are pretty expensive both on primary and secondary markets.
However there’s been some pretty serious questions raised about if his stuff is as labeled. There have been accusations of storing product in trash cans (not kidding), that he uses flavorings in the whiskeys, that he has been less than truthful about the amount of bottles in each release (to create a false sense of scarcity), and that he has attempted to manipulate the secondary market for his product as well to create buzz.
This post just made me laugh entirely too hard
Adding to this, his first or some of his first few blends were done honestly (I think) with Ed Bley for a liquor store and gained a cult following. Now all the sudden he’s churning out new batches every other day it seems.
Post this in the divorce thread. There are a lot of ppl that would like his flavor profile....
Cocktail kingdom has good stuff. You need a mixing glass, bar spoon, weighted shaker tins and a hawthorne strainer to start.
This is on his own insta
Also fuck the J Mattingly stuff. It's a scam. Those guys pushing it on CBM killed the group again
To take it a step further, should I get a set or build my own set?
Only place it could be sold I’d guess. I honestly don’t know a ton of details behind the accusations but I’d assume there’s some merit to them for his stuff to be banned multiple places.
It's taking advantage of the bourbon hype, the equivalent of putting a Ferrari decal on a ford pinto. Shit product with fancy bells and whistles
Out of curiosity what’d you pay for the bottle?
