I'm not one yet but I'm learning. Bought some Black Saddle 12 yr last night. Nice flavor...definitely warmed up the belly.
Basil Hayden's is VERY good stuff, highly enjoy it. I really like the entire small batch line, actually. I have a bottle of Baker's at home and finished off a bottle of Booker's. The problem with them is that they're a bit too hot for my taste (Bakers 107 pf, Booker's 120+pf).I'm no bourbon snob, but I have been enjoying my bottle of Basil Hayden's. Made me not even want to drink my Maker's or Woodford.
I have a bottle of Garrison Brothers (made in TX) I need to open in celebration of my rebuild. I have enjoyed my previous 2 bottles...
I read about this. I've only been the bourbon game for 5-7 years now and only fairly "serious" about it the past year.Four Roses is also pretty good. They had a brand resurgence under new ownership. It used to be bottom shelf kind of stuff.
Yep. They had a dinner here and told their whole story. I still remember seeing it next to MD 20/20 and Night Train back in the day.I read about this. I've only been the bourbon game for 5-7 years now and only fairly "serious" about it the past year.
It seems the brand went to shit and was rot-gut here in the States until it was purchased by the Japanese 15 some odd years ago...
I like rye, but I LOVE bourbon.How about some Rye?
Sounds like a race. Between your liver, and the oak barrel. :gr_jest:when ya'll have a barrel mix being aged for you at a distillery ya'll can be a bourbon snob.
till then shut your whore mouths whilst the men converse.
(bought into a barrel at woodford - I've still got 3 years to wait).
