Makers mark is my easy to find go to that is delicious. I still love the stupid hunt for rare stuff though, it's basically a silly hobby at this point!

Hell my second favorite regular is very old barton and it's like 11 bucks lol

Always been readily available, so I don't get it.

It's been that way here for a couple few years. Allocated and only 1 bottle per. And they only get it every so often.

Roses ....... It's what's for after dinner this evening. Smooth, good stuff.

Have you tried Rebel Yell?  I guess it's just Rebel now.  But if you like Maker's, I bet you'll like it.

Some of my haul last week on a small road trip…. I got a few more but duplicates of what is shown….Attachment Attached File


Humble brag….all at MSRP.

ETA : not exactly true - there are (2) bottles of Rare Breed Rye purchased at $39.95 / ea.

You can special order Smokewagon from your local VA ABC store a little cheaper than having it shipped direct....

I wanted to try something new, so I ordered Smokewagon Uncut Unfiltered... It came in today... this stuff is legit.   It's the first time I have paid over $50 for a fifth of bourbon and felt like it was that much better than a $35 bottle

My wife and I just returned from Fredricksburg, TX and we visited Garrison Brothers distillery in Hye, TX and I brought these home.  Their Honey Dew is as smooth as I have ever tasted.  Even my wife who does not like Bourbon/Whiskey liked the Honey Dew

I would hope so... It's only 80 Proof.  That's bourbon schnapps

Working on a dram of Wild Turkey 101 Rye tonight - something to soften the blow of the Market tanking for (3) consecutive quarters…..

Is there any way to "display" for lack of a better term my empty bourbon bottles that isn't super tacky or making it look like I live in a frat house? I have amassed probably 50 different bottles, saving 1 of each new bourbon I try. I mostly started saving them to keep track of what I have and have not tried and I found the variety of shape/size/design to be interesting. Right now they are all just chilling on a shelf in the basement pantry.

Also the Old Forester 1920 prohibition style is very very strong in flavor. Did not find it to be a good sipper even after diluted by ice but it makes a very tasty old fashioned.

Eagle Rare is funny
It used to be everywhere here, now it isn’t

I was in CA in summer 2020, and Eagle Rare was easy to find. I brought a case home as Christmas gifts.

I like the high proof stuff, but have found it to also be super tasty mixed 1:1 with Pendleton 1910. Yum!

Great question. I also have a linen closet FULL of bottles that I've kept from every new bottle I ever tried. I thought about setting up a bar and filling them all w evan williams or wild turkey 101 to fill shelves.

 I really enjoy Rabbit Hole but that’s a bit much for such a new distillery.  Is there even a age statement in it ?
