    seriously underrated. I just finished it last night and I've had it for about a year. early on - i didn't taste much from it but it opened up nicely after a little while.

    Great thread!



    Like many here, I love me some Blanton's - it is one of my reference bourbons. Also, Four Roses Single Barrel is always in the rotation - one of the first bourbons I ever drank, just used to it.



    Some others of note - to me, at least.



    Weller Special Reserve and Antique - the Antique is 107 proof and great over an ice ball; really changes and opens up that way.



    Michter American Whiskey



    Eagle Rare - always in the rotation



    Woodford Double Oaked - again, always in the rotation, good change of pace.



    Russell's Reserve 10 year Bourbon (90 proof) - excellent sipper



    Sazerac Rye - great for a Sazerac or Old Fashioned



    Wyoming - little known, wheated, smooth



    Bernheim - another wheated bourbon, good mixer



    Cheers!

    Those here who like Blanton's may also enjoy I.W. Harper 15 year. About $70 for a bottle, but very smooth, long finish of orange and vanilla (imo).



    I will continue testing various bourbons for the good of this board. As a member who reads much more than he posts, it's the least I can do. ;-)

    I’m getting so frustrated with the lack of choices in my area, I’ve been buying some rum lately.



    I miss my bourbon but the jacked up prices for average bourbons is dispiriting. For the last 4 months, I cannot find: Eagle Rare, Mckenna, Blantons, Willet, etc.

    Someone bought me some Basil Haydens and it's pretty descent. Lots of rye spice.

    I currently have Blanton's, Eagle Rare, and a bottle of EC Small Batch Barrel Proof. I could get used to this rotation...

    Have you tried Kirk & Sweeney? It’s a solid rum.

    I also always tout four roses single barrel.

    Awesome bourbon. Before last summer's big win over the Pappy's of the world, McKenna BiB was very easy to find and always under $30/bottle. Now it's a hot secondary market whiskey and stores have a hard time keeping it in stock. Still fantastic, but much harder to find and the resulting popularity pushed the price up quite a bit.

    For you rye drinkers out there, Old Forester's new rye is FANTASTIC and well under $30/bottle. Highly recommend grabbing it if you see it.

    That's a solid collection! I hope the orphan barrels are good.

    Buddy of mine works for Wild Turkey... he gave me a pour of the McCaugnehey stuff... it was not alright, alright, alright... Apparently the bourbon was amazing before they aged it on mesquite... Sad day.

    Bourbon ho here...this is my collection...well, part of it.
    Favorite daily drinker(s) are:
    • Anything from EH Taylor
    • High West Double Rye, High West Bourye, basically anything from High West BUT their Silver Whiskey
    • Old Ezra 7

    I have a great local store that hooks me up with what I ask for and always has good new stuff to try. I have found that having a solid relationship
    with the owner has been very beneficial.

    George T. Stagg.....hands down the best bourbon out there. What years are your bottles?

    Completely agree with you. My favorite on earth. I had two other bottles that are now empty :)

    The two pictured are '16 and' 17. Drank my '15 and another '16 I had. Big, bold, complex, absolutely delicious.

    Agreed. Stagg is so good... Stagg Jr isn't a bad way to get a taste for the profile, but even that's hard to find nowadays.

    Bought the latest batch of stag jr and it had a real “off” taste... previous bottles were way better.
    Anyone tried anything new and good?

    Willett is one of the better Bourbons I've tried lately. Didn't care for some of the other ones I was suggested to try. I have not been able to find Blanton's. Every place I try has long waiting lists.

    I think Blantons is overrated.... Don’t get me wrong, it is good, just not for the prices being charged for it now.
    To me, it is also not very bold in flavor & I greatly prefer a bolder flavor. Example of a better priced, more flavorful bourbon from the same distillery for me is Stagg Jr. much higher proof though...

    Give Willett's 4 year old rye a shot. It's one of my favorites. I like everything I've tried from the Willett distillery - Old Bardstown Estate, Noah's Mill, Rowan's Creek. They have have a cinnamon/red hot component that I really like. I haven't had the Pot Still yet. Old Scout is on the shelves here so I'll have to pick one up to try.

    With the direction that distribution has gone I have really focused my attention to store picks. There can be a huge difference between a pick and regular bottles of the same juice sitting on the shelves. If stores near by have a barrel they picked they normally let people have a taste and I highly recommend it. It's a good way to get some great juice without having to camp out overnight or pay stupid secondary prices.
