One of my favorites
I didn't want to be the first to post an American rye whiskey here, but it's already been done...
Picked up a new tasting glass on the other side of town tonight. That store happened to have every High West bottle that I know has been distributed. Not sure if I'm ready to cross that $40 dollar threshold, let alone $80. Time will tell. This bottle is a steal at $35 on sale at the local grocery. Cheers all!
I felt pretty confident that the intention of @Greywulfken ’s thread was for the entire family of bourbon. Jack Daniels withstanding of course.
I already post malt liquor and AAL on WBAYDN, didn't want to send a second thread into a hissy. Although, my cheaper beer purchases have expanded my Rye budget a bit...
Russells Reserve no age statement, singe barrel from the meat of the rack house, non chill filtered, but from what I gather it’s 9-10 yr old whiskey. Right at 110 proof, just a tremendous nose on this one, smooth honey, Oak, some caramel, finish is about as good an an organism, long lingering, a bit of burn that goes all the way down, it let’s you know it’s alive. There’s two Russels Reserves, ones at 90 proof aged, 10 years, and the big boy single barrel. Away to Gettysburg for this weekend holed up in Martinsburg WVa tonight, I’ll post a pic tomorrow night. Think I like this a bit more than my usual Knob Creek Small Batch Single Barrel 120 proof, this is a few bucks more, but I’ve always had a nostalgic love for Wild Turkey. I need a broader sample but this imo is a bit heftier than the Knob Creek, a bit more substantial regardless of the abv.
Yowzer, I’d like to try that. EC on steroids.
In the event some of our newer members may not be aware, the graven image on that bottle is not a marketing graphic, it's actually the portrait of Basil Hayden, the original "Pappy".
That is one of my top two all-time faves to-date...
...the other being Hillrock...
I like this one. I get dark cherries.
Well, you guys convinced me to pick up a bottle of this, and I'm damn glad I did. Wow, the nose and finish on this are fantastic.
Not that I'm any sort of expert when it comes to bourbon, but..... A solera aged bourbon? I've never heard of such a thing. Fascinating!
Really Liking all the pictures. Wish there was some way of written reviews, would love to read member's thoughts on Nose ,Palate,uniqueness,price and overall rating on all these Whiskeys.
Another tasty one for the price.
Home after a horrible nightshift. Wife is taking her mom out for breakfast so I'm having a drink and getting ready to get some sleep...
I really like this neat and it's $31 & change at Sam's Club. I intend to pick up some other 95% rye bottles to compare. Cheers!
Superb, so smooth.
What is quite possibly the best bourbon under $20. (with the caveat of charcoal filtering)
With some filets and ribeyes going for the moms in the house.
Outstanding whiskey by WT, best finish on any Bourbon I’ve ever had. It’s got a great nose, very smooth, then bam. Warm and long lasting, at 110 proof it’s so very sippable. Mash bill 75 corn, 13 rye, 12 malted Barley, level 4 alligator char.

It's my second-to-last bottle and cracked it open this evening since today was the day I received my first social security retirement payment. Getting old is bearable with coin and bourbon...
Good afternoon, all! I had some minor dental work done today, after which I stopped at the grocery store for something soft for supper. This should do it: Bulleit Barrel Strength. High-rye mash bill, 125 proof. Incredible aromas of vanilla and toffee. A little hot as expected, with some cinnamon and peppery spice on the finish. I may make a mint julep with this later. What could possibly go wrong?
Mint julep, with Wild Turkey 101. Burying my nose in a sprig of fresh-picked Greek mint as I sip this and look out over my tobacco plantation in the cool of the evening. I can dream, right?
I always put one ice cube in, don’t judge me. Cheers!
Boss pour going on!
I'll eventually make through all the posts, cause these are all awesome.
Currently...getting to the end of my Evan Wiliams Single Barrel bottle. I do really like this one, and is in my regular rotation. Maybe not my favorite, which right now is Henry Mckenna 10 Year Single Barrel (Bottled in Bond). Though that is getting harder to find in my area. I'll also pick up anything from Buffalo Trace or Willett.
That glass only holds 7 oz. This one almost holds a beer though.
trying to see what all the hubbub is on this one. so far, it's singing all the right notes.
I’ve been waiting for that one to surface too. Love the proof point.
My favorite drink, I grow my own mint and you can never have enough. Not picky about my bourbon in this, but Beam Black is good value for this one.
Still have some of this left.
Thanks to all who recommended the Old Forester 1920. I picked up a bottle last night and was impressed, very impressed.
Four Roses Single Barrel is my usual go to so the 1920 was a nice change of piece. I'm a bit of novice when it comes to bourbon, especially higher proofed bourbons, but I personally have not tasted anything where the heat is so well integrated into the rest of the flavor profile.
Angel's Envy is on deck to be my next pick-up. The finish in old port barrels sounds very interesting.
Add Elijah Craig Barrel Proof and Bookers to your high test list.
I still prefer Buffalo Trace
And GTS, WLW, Four Roses Limited Editions....
