Blanton’s in your grocery stores?
I was giving you shit. Have you tried the liquor store next to Lauber?
For under $30, any Buffalo Trace Store Pick you come across is worth snagging
That's where the raffle was that I posted in the other thread. That place is niceeeee. Blarney Stone has Blanton's in stock for 79.99 lol
Next time my bud has a deal, I'll message you and get you hooked up.
If you ever come across OKI, that is a bottle you want to keep and not pass to your friends.
Also, buy the Chattanooga 1816 Cask Strength old labels while you can. Black label stuff is older MGP whiskey. The new stuff is their own distillate, which is decent, but totally different and not as good IYAM. They’re featuring a high malt mash bill now, which I’m not the biggest fan of
What the fuck is this bullshit?
I'm going back to the other thread. This one smells funny.
There has been some sentiment that we could use a bourbon thread with a buying guide on the top of page 1 for easy reference, and since the OP of the other thread doesn't participate, a new thread was created.
I am lashing out because I wasn’t tagged in the OP.
Warranted. Fuck that tjsblue asshole
What... you’re in there. You guys...
Last Edited a moment ago.
Props to tjsblue for specifically repping the Bourbon capital of the world.
Shockingly, I don't drink liquor so I have nothing else to add.
Yep. St Louis is the greatest bourbon city on earth.
I can see the pre-edited version
(Shuffles papers around)
I’d love to see what everyone’s stashes look like too
I have a full beard thank you.
His name is Micheal.
I need another shelf or display before I can properly display mine, but I'm at about 65-70 types right meow.
I have built in shelving in my walk in closet and it’s where I store a lot of my stuff and it just looks sloppy right now, trying to figure out how to get it looking better.
Is Blanton's Special Reserve any good?
John J Bowman Single Barrel for $50 is a must buy every time. Buffalo Trace mashbill bottled in Va at 100 proof.
I have a bar in the basement, displayed like 8 bourbons (along with various other things), then got serious, and added another shelf that holds probably 30, but now I have it stashed into every nook and cranny of the front and back bar. Another shelf may not look right, so I'm looking into some display shelving with glass doors.
Scratch that, is Blanton's Gold Edition any good?
I think it's pretty similar to what they sell over here, but it's only available overseas (right?).
I'll let you know tomorrow
Are any of the Old Foresters any good? I usually see 3-4 different ones on the shelves here.
In addition to pricing ranges, I am hoping for a few other categories of postings:
1) flavor profiles of tasted products
2) recipes for tested cocktails
3) mashbills of tasted products
4) the occasional foray into recommended Scotch, Canadian, Japanese & Taiwan #1 products will not be hated (by me).
Old Forester Birthday, 1910 and 1920...especially the Birthday Bourbon.
I hate u
I'm not saying what I drink, or what I can get. Because every time I get a favorite, the fucking internet ruins it by putting it on some ranking and drives the price up.
Why stop there...Years aged, proof, location of juice, location of aging, distiller, burn level, links to reviews, master distillers name, states it isn’t available, drop dates, good years/ bad years, picture of bottle, aging process, awards, trade value, is it something artoo is going to be pissed we posted about...it could be the longest first post in history but I think TLDR is in play even with the first cut so we’ll need layers to make it digestible.
I’m your Japanese whiskey guy here I think
NYGator is about to leeeroy jenkins
I haven’t seen a bottle of Blantons in over a year and one place that said they would have them apparently sold them for $120. The bourbon market in Atlanta is a racket.
Bullock’s in Woodstock keeps a couple on hand that they will gladly sell you for $100 each.
This stuff is amazing! Anyone tried it????
Nope. Probably too expensive. Cask finished bourbons are just getting so pricey!
they actually finish it by sticking a cinnamon broom from Hobby Lobby in the barrel for the last six months.
Ahh, that explains the straw note I get on the finish.
Can't be stated enough. They take advantage of younger idiots hyping stuff up that's widely available outside of the city.
And the subtle closed on Sundays nuances
I can taste Jesus
