    This is going to be tough. I'm in the Caribbean right now and don't keep my cellular service on. Seems as though I will be through the weekend as I don't want to miss it.

    Any thoughts on Parker’s Heritage 11 year old barrel proof? I think it was the 2017 release. I can get that for $250.

    My local ABC stores kind of suck. They don’t really carry anything but basic bottles. However, last night I stopped by on the way home and saw they had a High West Bourye on sale for $69, which is about $10-$20 cheaper than I’ve seen anywhere else around here. I’d been meaning to try it, so I snagged one. Any thoughts on this bottle? I’ll crack it open tonight.

    Local shop has the following and I need to get some gifts:

    Pick 2:
    Knob creek 12
    Knob creek quarter oak
    Makers wood finishing series
    McKenna 10
    Angels envy rye

    Depending on price, those two are the best and least controversial of the gifts. I prefer the wood finishing series offerings that are lower in spice. Also, Knob may be a bit harsh for non-bourbon drinkers. AE Rye is a nice gift for the bottle, but doesn't live up to the hype. I have never had the quarter oak.

    McKenna 10 is one of my favorite under $50 bourbons, have only tried a couple of the Makers wood finishing but have liked them a lot so far. Don't like angel's envy, especially for the price.

    It is for a bourbon drinker, but yeah I figured McKenna would likely be the play. Its the only thing I’ve had from that list. It’s overpriced at 80, but still feel like I’m getting a decent value compared to some of the stuff at the same price point.

    Makers is the same price SE4XPR5

    It's a gift so you might not care but that's way overpriced at double MSRP. If you can wait a week I can most likely get you some for $40 and even with a shipping label you're well ahead.

    Do not spend $80 on McKenna. I can get it to you for much cheaper.

    McKenna offer stands for anyone in here. It's probably the only bourbon that seems some of you guys have a hard time finding at all or for a good price and I can find it pretty consistently for $40ish with tax.

    If it's for a bourbon drinker then the limited nature of the SE4 PR6 wood finishing series makes it the clear winner :twocents:
