    Went out looking for Act 8 to keep up with the Joneses. Came home with these instead.

    Knob Creek is a store pick

    Scooped up a little Book and a Woodinville single barrel barrel proof bottle. Really liked the regular small batch bottle I got so am excited.

    Also... that Woodinville is going to blow you away. I’ve got a couple picks and have loved them all. Something in the water in Washington

    Store picks just hit my store. Nearly 15 year KC that was the long horn steakhouse barrel they turned back, and a barrel proof old forester. Got 3 of each and my god the Old Forester is like a 130 proof version of 1910, it’s perfect.

    Have read mixed things on the OF picks personally. Some good barrels, some poor ones.

    Jealous of the 15 year KC picks you guys are finding. I have an 11.5 year pick from Super Saver in NJ heading my way but we don’t get any of them in NC.

    I bought two @80 each and texted my guy to stash two more behind the counter for me. He got 24 cases and sold half in a day.

    Hadn’t read much about the EB toasted, but it’s apparently been reviewed as underwhelming.

    The BJ goobers loved it though:

    Brick, I picked up an old forester rye today for the first time based on your suggestion. It’s a solid cheap rye.

    I say it a lot. I don't like toasted barrel. Its like light roast coffee vs dark roast. I want the flavor in my bourbon.

    So you prefer light roast to dark?

    The BJ review guys talk about this being a very sweet version of a toasted bourbon, in comparison to others which are all barrel char.

    Light roast coffee because more caffeine but I had the original michter's toasted barrel and I have the toasted EG and I just feel like there isn't much to them. If you want a super smooth bourbon sure, but I like to know I'm drinking something. I need to be punched in the mouth to feel alive. Help me.

    Leeroy Jenkin's overhyped bourbon pick!

    Last year I brought you peerless bourbon which I hyped incredibly to go and buy 4 more bottles only to realize there is definitely some variability between batches.

    This year my overhyped pick of the week is a Wilderness Trail Rye store pick!

    bourbon is a little too spicy for me without a couple of ice cubes. I don’t use ginger ale though, that is for vodka or gin. A good bourbon is neat or on the rocks

    I think underwhelming is a good word to use for it. Don't get me wrong, I think it's good, I really like the flavors but I feel like it just leaves me wanting more.
