    Enjoying playoff hockey and an 11yr SP Knob Creek. I have yet to be disappointed in a single one of these (after they’ve sat for a few weeks.)

    I love them. I have been hoarding the 14-15 year ones like a mad man.

    Anyone had anything from LAWS Whiskey House out of Denver? Thoughts?

    You and I definitely have different tastes.

    The four grain was okay but I bought a store pick barrel proof rye, took one sip and said nope. Revisted a week later still nope. I would put it up as one of the worst bottles I've ever had. Store pick I know but ugh.

    Snagged a GTS and WFP today. Woop woop.

    Stopped by to see if they had any of the Elijah Craig store picks left. Last one on the shelf was hidden behind the normal small batch bottles. Grabbed that and a 1792 full proof store pick.

    Best part is its usually like 50 bucks. I'm becoming more of a value bourbon hunter now, although I paid 200 for the WFP yesterday, I just wanted it and it was a treat to myself. Shits just getting too expensive. Thats why I'm mad at myself for not listening to pperc and jumping on the smoke wagon 6 months back. That shit is delicious for the price (Uncut, haven't had the desert jewel but they all say its the best)

    I had a couple pours of Joseph Magnus a few weeks back and really enjoyed it, so I’ve been curious.

    My store has a Murray Club and a store pick regular, both at $100. Neither of those are what I had. Thoughts?

    Better buy up all the DJ you can find. It’s been discontinued. I have a SmB and Uncut but had to trade with a guy in TX. Hoping they start distributing to GA soon

    I think they’re decent, but very overpriced. If you’re in DC, the distillery is fun tho.

    I thought they sourced everything, no idea they were distilling their own stuff for the future.

    Maybe their own gin is the only thing that’s old enough yet? I dunno. I’ve just really enjoyed their cocktails at the bar, which is attached to the distillery

    That’s cool.

    Tthat likely means they’re distilling lots of spirits and just selling stuff that doesn’t need to be aged (gin, vodka) for operational cash flow while their whiskey sits.

    I’ve been reading very favorable reviews of the Joseph Magnus bourbon and some mixed reviews on their Murray Hill. I’ll probably grab that store pick of the regular Joseph Magnus.

    took a two week break off of booze for a mental reset. Picked up an Evan Williams SiB tonight. Not a bad pour for $30. Very oaky.
