What are you getting for it
1k worth of bourbon. nice
I have a weller 12 and cypb with your name on it
i had some eagle rare tonight, and i enjoyed it
It's the best jerry , the best
it is better than makers mark and evan williams
plenty of it in NW Ohio and in south Michigan. i can send some if you want
This is pretty cool honestly.
Anyone else here a Mellow Corn fan? Hell, for the price it's unbeatable. Bottled in Bond never fails.
Pretty neat use of tech
I don't understand WT Rye 101 at $29 but WT RB Rye at 119 proof is $60
Reminds me of Red Man
are you thinking one should be more or less expensive?
I've stopped buying the BP and get the 101 now
gotcha. The rb has older barrels in it, the difference is more than just proof
Didn't know that, makes sense, I'll reconsider
FWIW I like both products and wouldn't find it odd if someone said they didn't see a $30 difference between the 2. Big fan of the RB rye though.
Tend to mix the 101 so there is no baseline
Mellow Corn Whiskey Review | Breaking Bourbon
Mellow Corn has become a meme amongst hipsters and taters. It is what it is. It’s on par with Evan Williams white label, nothing special. It’s pretty bland and corn-forward (shocker, I know), tastes young.
I was going to post that exact statement
As much as the NC selection sucks ass, at least you can count on the prices being cheap and standardized
I am in SC and it's like the wild west. I just saw a four roses small batch select for $275
Are you sure it wasn't small batch limited edidtion?
It may have been, idk. It was behind the counter so I didn't get a really good look at it
Yeah, it was definitely limited edition, and I would have bought it for that price.
Maybe some day my palate will be able to tell the difference, but for now $100+ bourbon is wasted on me
I got some Elijah Craig barrel proof, McKenna 10 yr and old Forester 1910 which have been impossible/difficult to find in NC
The prices for some of those is more just having a bottle than drinking it regularly. The allure of buying expensive and hard to find bottles for me is being able to share it with people who appreciate it or to have a nip for a special occasion.
Where was this
recommend you still buy those LE's now if you see them, it wont be wasted for long
Here's the deal. I like it. I'm normally an Islay Scotch drinker and don't venture into bourbon or other whiskeys much. Meme? I have no idea regarding "hipster memes," but I do know good whiskey and I know that, for the price point, Mellow Corn is pretty good. I'm not saying that its single-malt Caol Ila 12, but it's not bad and the price is super agreeable. I'm not going to dislike something because it's the "hipster thing" to like it. Absolutely silly to dislike and discredit something simply because it's popular among a certain crowd. That said, if they are still espousing the qualities of PBR then they still haven't picked a decent beer.
I’m glad you like it.
Let us know if you ever want suggestions on broadening out your whiskey, rye, and bourbon selections.
And I’ll ping you if I ever want to branch into scotch, CharlieKellyReturns. So far I’ve stuck to balvenie 14y caribbean cask because it carries similar sweeter notes that I’m accustomed to in bourbon.
My man . I just bought a Lagavulin Cask strength, and an Octomore 12.2 to break open on Christmas.
If you're looking for a good bourbon for around the same price as Mellow Corn, I would suggest Early Times Bottled in Bond. You can get a liter for like $25.
BrickTamland if you ever want good scotch recommendations for a bourbon drinker, feel free to ping me too. I love bourbon, but I'm actually more of a scotch drinker.
Do we sell “liter cola?”
Generally, just stick with Laphroaig 10 as my normal but looking for some info on the Ardbeg and Lagavulin brands. Ardbeg Scorch has my attention.
I would be interested in a good bourbon with minimal sweetness, if that exists. That's the part that I just don't care for.
I'd shoot for high rye bourbons and see if that fits your palate
Will do. Thank you.
Sounds like you need an Old Grandad 114
If you aren't into the sweetness as much, I might pass on Lagavulin for now, especially if your palate is used to smoke already. I always get some honeydew melon flavors upfront with Lagavulin that might put you off.
Try the Ardbeg 10, or Ardbeg Corryvreckan if you want to splurge a bit. Also the Port Charlotte 10 would be good for you I think.
Old Grandad Bonded
Redwood Empire Lost Monarch
High West BouRye
I'll see what's available and get some of these.
