    Default Official Bourbon thread

    Figure we should have an official bourbon thread since so many on here enjoy a good bourbon.

    My current stash.

    I’m sure if you asked they would give you the discount.

    Where's the Pappy? Reading Pappyland right now and it a decent read.

    I don't care for the Woodford and would take Knob Creek over it. Michters is good stuff though.

    That's one of my faves. Always have a bottle laying around for a night cap.

    I've been through a few bottles of Legent. It's a pretty good daily driver for $50.

    I've got a jug of that too. It's been a while since I had any of it, but I like it.

    Drinking a bunch of Old Forester 1920 lately. Really good stuff. Also can't go wrong with Wild Turkey Rare Breed for the price.

    Thx for the heads up! Got one of those and a Buffalo trace (also on sale) for 80$ total. Not too shabby.

    Some good ones - I really like Jeffersons.

    Surprised nobody has mentioned Blantons.

    I think I am going to have to disagree with you guys on the Legent. The flavor is overpowered by the alcohol burn you get from young spirits. Usually with spirits like this you can mellow them out with a bit of water but I haven't found that to be the case with Legent. I'd rate it slightly better than Woodford's Double Oaked which is swill.

    I think my favorite all around bourbon is Eagle Rare. You can find it for $60-$80 and its got a phenomenal flavor profile that fits almost any situation, if I had to pick only one bottle to drink this would be it. Hudson's Baby Bourbon was my second favorite but it's been hard to find lately.

    Basil Hayden is a good introductory bourbon for someone who thinks they want to get into it but not sure or maybe are used to mixing their whisky. I find it sweeter with a smooth simple flavor profile. It makes a great gift.

    Out of the ~10+ bottles I currently have on the go I think the Garrison Brother's is my current favorite, its definitely on the more expensive end for bourbons but totally worth it IMO. Any Texas based bourbon seems (to me) to have almost a sour mash undertone to it which adds a really nice robust mouth feel. TX Texas Straight Bourbon Whiskey is another one that would fit into that category but it definitely needs an ice cube to mellow it out and really bring out the flavor.

    Like how Bob McKenzie is a wine glass snob, I'm a bit of a Whisky tumbler snob. I've got a few of the Norlan Glass tumblers that make the experience so much better. If you want to treat yourself I highly recommend picking up the Rauk Heavy Tumbler. I've got a set of the Valid (black) whisky glasses too as a back up but the heavy tumbler is where its at.
