    i know they are common but i never make whiskey sours. just made one and it was the best cocktail i’ve made in long time. 3/4 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice, 2oz michters small batch whiskey, 1/2oz simple syrup. shake for 30 sec without ice. then add ice and shake to well chilled. strained over ice block. added orange bitters as garnish

    Haven’t had it then if you’ve liked other OF stuff it’s likely a safe bet

    There definitely seems to be a group that don’t like the profile, but not as polarizing as Dickel

    It is a distinguishable profile but not as bad as dickle. I think the rye cuts it some and at $23 it’s a good mixer

    Got a Russell’s reserve single barrel from the mother in law. Always wanted to try it but my store stopped stocking it. Really nice

    - The old forester blew me away. Dark cherry city with a warm caramel sweetness.

    - KC wasn’t overly complex on the nose initially but had a great flavor on the tongue as a 12 year should. Much better as it opened up a bit

    - Toasted barrel didn’t leave me too impressed. Was the first one I had.

    - Pipe dream was just opened that day. Great bourbon for as young as it is. Lighter fruits and floral character from what I remember

    George Remus store pick was really solid. Only had a small pour as I was headed out the door though

    I got a Blantons display piece and need an ‘O’ cork if anyone has an extra. I can spell them out but don’t want to use a gold topper if I don’t have to.

    Called the state store this morning the minute they opened. They told me the truck just got there and to call back in 2 hours.

    Called back 2 hours later to find out they had gotten OF 150 yr anniversary and it sold out in 3 minutes.

    looks good. I saw where one recipe called for orange juice. I put orange bitters in mine the other day and thought it was a nice touch.

    Current topic has reminded me why I still haven’t tried the 1920 when I love the 1910. I bought the bottled in bond today and looking forward to comparing it.

    Am a fan of 1910. Have a bottle of 1920 i did not love but need to revisit. Have seen some posts of people mixing to make 1915 which I might give a shot at some point.

    Glad to hear it's decent. Bought it for a friend for xmas. Heard OF'10 was solid choice for $50-60 range. Plus they were out of Russell's Reserve & any nicer Elijah Craig.

    I tried the Lagavulin 16 last night.

    As you fine gentlemen suggested, it was not in fact anything like the Balvenie 14 I’d had previously and enjoyed. Islay scotch is definitely a unique flavor.

    liked what I’ve had from High West lately. Decided to dabble in some of their ryes. Picked up a Double Rye for $30 and Rendezvous Rye for $55.

    Tried to get in on an OWA for $95 including shipping on a facebook group but got beat to the punch.

    having just overspent on an OWA, I can tell you, it’s probably not worth that much. Unless you’re trying to collect them all or something. It’s a $50 bottle max, imo. Maybe $60.
