    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.

    My dad used to always do captain Morgan in the egg nog, and that was also good.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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 :can:





    (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+.
