“Rip” “Old Rip” ORVW RVW
There is also a lob B or family reserve.
I amend my previous comment to thus "if they mix that RVW I am never going to read their paper again"
hopefully that meets the regulations of this thread
It was totally mostly in jest. I learned my lesson when I called my Lot B “Pappy.”
We just really want a new ring toss set.
Since I can't go out and hunt the bottles I actually like are starting to die off
Less bottles to transport halfway across the country imo
At first I was like i've gotten into this way too quickly, now I feel like a genius
Found a store just before quarantine with Baby Saz for $29.99 and 1Ls of OGD BIB for $24.99. My stockpile of those two have done the trick for me thus far.
Just saw this shirt advertised on Facebook. Just wrong, and misguided.
I don’t understand it, but I think I’m triggered.
Link dead. What was it?
Just Elijah Craig capturing the current mood
What’s everyone.’s favorite “cheap” bourbon? I understand “cheap” is a relative term so whatever is that means. I like the Jim Beam Black and at 17 I don’t feel bad buying it right now.
I really like $23 Buffalo Trace store picks. Otherwise probably WT101 at $21.
still need to try the 101 but its BT for me as well
Also, OF rye and Rittenhouse for sub $25 ryes.
Starter whiskey kit (sub $25 bottles):
Wild Turkey 101
Sub in ~$32 OGD in there for the higher proof option and...
That’s the BrickTamland official starter pack for the OP. I’m open to suggestions for the rye as I’m not really knowledgeable of any other good $25 options. Sazerac is close but I’ve never seen it below $30.
Jim Beam Black
I don’t think buillet and buillet rye are bad for the price.
I need to try Bulleit rye. And agreed on Bulleit as a good value, there are just other options I prefer at that price.
I agree. It’s a good cheap mixer.
Picked up some Russell Reserve 10 yr for $26.99 at ABC based on recommendations from this group and it is fantastic. I like it better than eagle rare.
On a side note I picked up some Henry McKenna and don’t think it’s worth the 60 I paid
McKenna is tough one to gauge bc pretty recently it was $29-35 and available everywhere, and now it’s hard to find and always $50+. I like it a lot, but hard to treat it like ETL or RHF or other “allocated” bourbons
I’d buy out the store if I could find RR10 for $27.
When you get a good price I really like the rye. I think in Nashville there is a store where you can get and handle for 35ish. It works great in cocktails
Old Olverholt bonded (red label) when you can find it. OGD 114 when you can find it.
Speaking of Brown-Forman, I don’t see anyone ever mention Early Times BiB. $25-30 for a liter seems like it should be worth a mention.
For the money Old Forrestor 100 proof is pretty good to me
Early Times BiB - like $23 here for a liter since that’s the only size it’s bottled in for some reason
Edit: Brick beat me to i
Evan Williams BiB is also pretty solid
I think it compares favorably to those two.
I like Evan Williams 1793 as a cheap bottle too.
Mckenna > ETL/RHF? Nah man, you crazy.
I didn’t mean better. I used compares favorably wrong. I meant similar.
I’ll trade all my McKennas for your RHF and ETLs because I love you guys and I’m generous. Send PMs. Thanks.
What’s everyone’s favorite readily available $60-$80 bottle?
sorry, I’m bored
OF Prohibition 1920
Gregg barrel proof ... only $59 here but close enough
Two bottles of RR10
McKenna tonight. Really good but would love it at $35-$40
Maybe a little less, but Hancock's, McKenna, Russel's Single Barrel, Maker's RC6, Maker's Cask Strength, Elijah Craig Barrel Proof
I had 5 McKenna's tonight. I feel good.
I did a few WT101 during yard work so I’m there too
I’d like to second NYGator’s suggestion of RC6.
Yard work all day finished up with some WSR tonight. Lower proof can be nice sometimes as you can have a few extra and still stand up
I’m surprised how hard it is to think of bourbons in that price range. Most I buy are either sub $60 or $100+, emphasis on sub $60.
