    I'm typically a Scotch drinker, but I've been enjoying this one lately.

    So my local liquor store usually has some good "deals" on bourbons every month.

    This was listed at 84 bux but on sale for 19.99.

    Wow it is amazing. Straight up has a little bite but add a few ice cubes and it gets almost creamy with long taste.

    Ohh that is nice. Last bottle....i hope he gets more.

    Excellent price for 12yo sourced bourbon ! I wish it was available in FL so I can try it...
    BTW in this line - From all of those sub-$20 picks, I'm impressed by Old Tub, which is essentially Jim Beam.
    It worth every penny... :D:thumbsup:

    Ill have to see if hes got some old tub next time I peruse through there.

    My go-to was old hickory which he had listed at 20 bux but that sold out quick. Only was able to get 3 bottles and now hes out for good.

    Medley is some of the most underrated bourbon out there. They are doing great work. Awesome price there!

    My local store doesnt carry old tub and wont be getting any more old medley...drat. Was going thru the big city so stopped at thebottlebarn see if they had any. Notta....so walked away with a new single barrel bottle the last one didnt stick around too long during the cold snap.
    Tastes much better straight at room temp vs on the rocks. Gets too mellow.

    Everything Heaven Hill is excellent, even the green label, half a gallon for $17, it's a great, easy everyday seeper... I would go any day with Evan Williams 8yo Single barrel $23 juice or for Brown Forman's Old Forester's 86 or 100 proof bottles in the same price range, all excellent stuff.
    My personal favorites are in the $30-$45 category, just got this Knob Creek 120 proof Single Barrel Select, very, very good stuff ( except the picture of a Socialist they put on the back, I don't know why but...), or another personal favorite - 1792, pretty much all impressions...
    We are few friends that usually hunt locally for interesting Bourbon, we got for tonight a Rock Hill Farms Single Barrel, cant wait to try it, but generally I like more readily available Bourbon or Scotch that is in affordable range... Don't mind the expensive and rare bottles, but prefer the good stuff from the old makers and some new guys like Pinhook and Old Scout, both excellent pours in most impressions, IMHO.
    Cheers Friday Drinkers from BF ! :D
    (sorry for the crappy picture...)

    Rock Hill Farms is a great bourbon - it was my first, and it's still a favorite... but the price has gone crazy, at least around here (so I don't buy it anymore).

    Absolutely agree, price is ridiculous for a MSR of about $50+ bottle, it will easily go up to $200+...
    As I mentioned, we are in Tampa Bay area and there are couple of stores in Tampa where we usually find some of the good stuff.
    It is nice to try it and get together with my Bourbon buddies, otherwise I personally enjoy more everyday finds as Knob Creek, 1792, Evan Williams and Old Forester, lately I was able to find more often Henry McKenna 10YO on more normal price as well as a new for me juice - Chattanooga Bourbon and Rye, outstanding stuff in a sub $40 price range.
    Last Friday we had one Rock Hill Farms with few H.Upmans mixed by A.J. Fernandez, it was a great night... :D:thumbsup:
    Cheers !

    On my first trip to Woodford Reserve, in Jan 2013, they were barreling a new product.

    They told us to expect it in about 7 years; so I was waiting for it. Naturally, when it hit my favorite local shop, I grabbed some

    That's the story behind tonight's pour (and what's in the glass)

    Excellent pour from Vegas Nevada - the Smoke Wagon !
    Even the lowest shelf impression, it worth every penny of the $35 I paid for it :D
    Cheers !

    No 1792, evan williams or the like at my local store but he got a case of standard medley bros since the old sold over night and its regularly priced in the sub 20s. So had to grab a bottle. Its no old medley but not bad at all. May end up with a case....

    5160 Buck 110 showing off a little patina alongside of some Mckenna 10.
    Tasty.
    This coffee barrel stout is delicious as well!
    My issue with barrel aged stouts is they're usually such a high ABV that they're a little too boozy.
    That's what the whisky is for.;)
    This one is at 8% which allows the flavors to shine.
    Not a ton of coffee either, nice balance.
