    NYGator and you other rum heads, tell me which to try first and what to look for. I’ve never had a sipping rum.

    Got a tip by a buddy that a new store near me was having a Christmas Eve drop. Unfortunely I was about 10 minutes too late for any really good stuff but they did have this guy there which i had never seen before.

    Very unique flavors that was nice for one glass but that was about it for me. Look forward to sharing it with some bourbon friends.

    I went with the Rhum J.M. first. Very surprising, it reminds me of scotch much moreso than rum. There’s a dominant note that reminds me of scotch, can’t quite label it.

    The agricole is going to be very light and straw tasting, almost reminds me more of tequila

    This is one of the most unique single barrels I have every selected and one of the first few ever released, below is an explanation from Alan on what is exactly the Whiskey Witch is all about, I highly recommend you come in for a taste!

    The mash bill is composed of 51% Red Wheat, 24% Oats, and 25% Peat Smoked Malt. While oats and wheat aren’t often seen in modern Irish and Scottish expressions, both were once very common, and often used to this day by the handful of true “small pot” illicit distillers in Ireland, eager to preserve their distilling legacy. The Hoosier spin on this legacy is the use of peat harvested from bogs in Northern Indiana to smoke a small proportion of the Ye Olde Pale ale malt from Sugar Creek malt company. This peat brings a light fruitiness to the distillate and botanical like flavors as opposed to the typical phenolics of Scottish peat, an interesting and relevant difference from most smoked whiskeys as many of those early whiskeys from the isles were flavored post distillation with a variety of medicinal herbs hung in a bag at the end of the condenser. - Alan Bishop Head Alchemist

    No idea what your Costco is going to have. The OP in this thread is a great starting point. You can also make a post of what’s available there and we can offer suggestions (pricing is a nonissue as theirs will be below what you’d pay at a local shop.)

    Any thoughts on Stellum Black? The local packie has it for 110$ and debating if I should pick it up. I enjoyed the bourbon & rye picks from Gordon's quite a bit.

    To clarify, all of what you’ve mentioned is worth buying and trying. Barrel Dovetail is t for everyone, but most of us here enjoy it. It’s a barrel proof blend of finished whiskeys (ideal first pour for #FinishedFridays.)

    I haven’t had Old Tub, it’s just another offering in the $25 range. I like Early Times there, but Buffalo Trace is the king at that price point if it’s available in your area.

    BrickTamland I really enjoy EC Toasted Barrel but definitely more oak and char than your average bear. Real tasty for 94 proof tho.

    Seriously what is the stellum black label?

    It’s a $100 bottle; thought the whole point of that brand was to gain share in that $50-60 range.
