Great thread.

I don’t daily drink since I quit smoking but somehow I keep buying bottles. I have some opinions on bourbon that some won’t agree with but that’s ok.

Blanton’s is highly overrated and bland. No finish, no complexity in the flavor profile.

I don’t understand the hype or following of Eagle Rare or Buffalo Trace. Neither of them are worth picking up for me, I always pass on them unless a friend is trying to find a bottle and I see one.

Weller 12 is my least favorite Weller.

With all that said back when I did daily Rare Breed was always a favorite, and I did have a good run finding 12 year Knob Creek consistently. Pics of a few recent bottles as well.

My go-to is Maker's Mark. I also have a bottle of Woodford Reserve Double Oaked.

And I have nothing against Canadian, Scotch or Irish whiskies.

That's the great thing about Bourbon. Everyone has different tastes.
Now if I could just talk everyone into hating several of my favorites so they are easily found I would be all set!

Trust me I am with you. I live in the heart of Bourbon country and it is really hard to get things at MSRP. You can always pay way over.

I hear you.

Down in Arkansas so we don't get much in the way of allocated bottles on the shelf here either due to the fact we just don't drive the volume to get them. Also my particular county was a dry county until a few years ago so the local liquor stores are still trying to build that level of relationship with the distributors.

I have a couple of bottles that I've paid a small 'finder's fee' on but nothing outrageous, like $20/bottle. The secondary market is not something I'll ever use, those guys are absolutely crazy.

This may be a good place to ask if anyone has an opinion on this Parker’s release. I have a bottle being offered to me, just have never tried it.

I know nothing about it but I do like that Willet and Old Forester in the pic. Those are good.

Came out of the shower after finishing work, paying bills, chores, and a work out to find this waiting for me.....was told to sit in my chair.

and i must say. It pairs....most excellently....with what’s happening just off camera.....
