And if so which bourbon?
Eggnog is delightful. How can you watch Christmas Vacation without eggnog?
Typically I use makers or Buffalo Trace. Guys at work said brandy is way better. Trying to see if I should get off the couch and go to the liquor store.
You can do both simultaneously but I prefer brandy
me and a buddy pretty much KOed a bottle of Rare Breed on Tuesday night. Had some of that Knob Creek you sent last night (delicious) but I didn’t over do it.
We did just crack the bottle so I wonder if given some time to open I’d have a different feeling.
Did wild turkey 101 last night in mine.
My dad used to always do captain Morgan in the egg nog, and that was also good.
Southern Custard with Dark Rum.
Just cracked my 2020 Lot B.
2020 significantly >>> 2019
Delicious. Reminds me of the bottle I opened up a few years ago that started me on my bourbon journey. So vanilla creamy.
I do wonder if these have bottle to bottle variation
That's a good point. I really did not think 2019 was exceptional at all and I had 2 bottles, but that is anecdotal based on my 2. I was wondering why a couple of you were raving over it. I had a bottle from around 2011 that reminds me of this so much more. This one is a creamy dream.
2019 is pretty fucking delicious to me. I haven’t tried any 2020 BTAC or Pappy though. The urge to raffle....rises however
Glad you said this. I was going to trade my 2020- Lot B because the 2019 was so disappointing.
Picked up some Christian Brothers Brandy and I hate to say it, but it is way better with brandy
Saved this one to open tonight
Let my wife choose whether I cracked my WFP, Old Forester BP SB, or Michter's Toasted Rye for the first time. Her choice, based solely on which label was her favorite.....
My buddy revisited his 2020
Lot B today and said it’s better but still not top tier like the BTAC stuff. Could be bottle to bottle variation.
This man knows how to Instagram.
Thank you sir. It was delicious.
What an incredible lineup of bottles to make chocolates
Opened this tonight, not the biggest EC fan, but I love this.
I would like the thread to know that Keef left it up to me whether he'd open this bottle, M10 Rye, or Old Fitz 15. I feel so important.
I’m also really enjoying the fact that there’s an unofficial glencairn of The Main Bourbon Club.
Cracked mine today too. Love it
Blantons, EHT, Redbreast 12 cask strength. If you don’t Redbreast you really should by the way. It’s amazing.
Eagle Rare, Blantons store pick, Smokewagon Straight, and EHT Small Batch so far with the brother in law. It has been a great night.
Lil smoke wagon straight and Weller FP here. Just watching Schitts Creek and thinking about how early I’m going to have to wake up tomorrow
4 Roses small batch, Buffalo trace, wt 101 in eggnog, 1792 full proof store pick, woodinville store pick. Goodnight
I need to find a 2020 bottle of that. My 2019 is almost gone (I've been rationing all year).
Just opened my Elijah Craig 18 and Weller 12. Big fan of both.
i have had a lot of basil hayden tonight
Exact same boat here. Almost lucked into one the other day but missed it by 10 minutes. Was going to have a pour last night actually but it was like 60 degrees here so didn’t feel right, have always felt this was cold weather bourbon. Tonight’s low is 20 so that’ll be perfect.
Has anyone read any good books on bourbon? Any recs
I just read Little Books anytime I can get my hands on them.
Redbreast is great. I am tempted to buy the 27 year.
Wright Thompson’s Pappyland is getting good reviews but I haven’t read it
I saw that. Reason this piqued my interest was someone on fb posted they got the book Bourbon Curious by Fred Minnick. Thought about picking it up but wasn’t sure if anyone here had maybe read it
this bottle is surprisingly great
I drank a bunch of wine yesterday and bought $180 worth of fireballs
Only got a Blantons out of it
math doesn’t work out, don’t drink and fireball
(sold 2 OWA for $180 and used that money so it’s not that bad but still)
can you explain the fireballz thing? Are you essentially gambling to get a nice bottle?
yes bottle secondary cost is divided by 10, so say it’s a $100 bottle- every spot is $10 (0-9 numbers). Use a state lottery 4 ball, the 4th ball is the fireball and the winner
you buy the spots and wait on the results
Switching to OWA. I wish Weller prices would settle. It’s a decent pour but has no business being $100+.
now to HW Bourye. Running through my collection tonight. Happy holidays brown drank buddies.
Bourye and MWND are my winter brown dranks.
Forgot to get a pic before I drank most of it.
Merry Christmas Bourbon Thread!
some good prices here:
