      New label for the knob creek single barrel reserve. Got to finish off the Blanton’s before I open this up. It usually puts me on my ass with 120 horsepower

          I bought a bottle of Blanton's from Mickeyblueyes last December...was saving it for a special occasion. So, on Veterans Day, my dad asked what was on the menu, so I cracked it open...so smooth, definitely worth $75 (Maybe even $80)

            smooth and creamy yes. Very good sipping whiskey. But the street price is a bit over the top for the overall complexity that I normally enjoy. Funny thing I noticed... when I finished off the 4 Roses Small Batch Select I moved over to Blanton's to finish off the night. The overall complexity of Blanton's changed and I really picked out the rye spice after a couple of glasses of the 4 roses. But last night, just vanilla, caramel and quick finish. Which was perfect because I was just in a mellow sipping mood to begin with.

              I was drinking the 100 proof small batch last weekend. Good stuff, pretty smooth for a higher proof. Looking forward to trying the single barrel next.

                https://brobible.com/culture/article...ky-bible-2020/

                While many of us fancy ourselves as “whiskey experts,” Jim Murray is actually a whiskey expert. Murray is believed to be the world’s first-ever full-time whisky writer and is believed to have visited more distilleries in the world than any person. He has written 22 books on whiskey, including his annual best whiskeys in the world roundup known as Jim Murray’s Whiskey Bible that he has written for the last 17 years.

                Murray has sampled nearly 20,000 whiskeys from around the world in his career and sampled another 1,200 from 30 different countries for Jim Murray’s Whiskey Bible 2020 to declare the greatest whiskey on the planet (Greatest job ever?). This year’s winner is a glorious bourbon that is very affordably priced
                Murray named 1792 Full Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon as his World Whisky of the Year winner. The bourbon from the Barton 1792 distillery, which is owned by Buffalo Trace parent company Sazerac, scored 97.5 out of 100. The best part is that 1792 Full Proof Kentucky Straight Bourbon is very available and retails for a very reasonable $50, so you may want to get it before word gets out.
                “For the 1792 Distillery to win ‘World Whisky of the Year’ is extraordinary because when I first went there some 25 years ago, the then-owners had no interest in high-end whiskey, said Murray. “The oldest they produced was a 6-year-old, which I thought was one of the most complex on the market but still undercooked. I implored them then to bring out something much older.”
                “It is wonderful that my gut instinct of 25 years ago has been vindicated under the ownership of Sazerac, who have turned a potentially great distillery into something truly magnificent,” Murray stated.

                Sazerac and Buffalo Trace continued to impress Murray by placing second and third on the World Whisky of the Year award winners with William Larue Weller 125.7 proof and Thomas Handy Sazerac Rye 127.2 proof. USA! USA! USA!
                Picked up at Cappy’s in Lynbrook, $30, OUTSTANDING.

                  I just started to really dig a little more into Bourbons (was more into scotch). Heard good things about Angels Envy. Picked it up & I do like it. Price was good too. Can't beat it with a stick.
                  Cheers!

                    Another bottle done. When it gets down to a 1/4 bottle it really smooths out quite a bit. And the finish cleans up nice and maple syrup like. Hope those that scored bottles from me are enjoying it.

                      I love Russell's!

                      picked up a couple new bottles this Saturday and like them both, the Maker's more than the Beam. Both are single barrel offerings, which I prefer. The makers has a nice sweet nose and is pretty smooth with a nice finish. Although not as strong (or as sweet), the ABV is more apparent in the Beam.
                      I would recommend both, the Beam would make a nice gift, especially at only $35.

                          Yeah I’ve hit him up a few times. Apparently my family is all getting me bourbon this year. So I’m gonna be drunk most of 2020

But after I popped open the Wild Turkey Rare Breed I wasn't much of a fan of the finish. So much so that I traded it with a co-worker. I notice hints of that finish in the Russell's Reserve Single Barrel but it's much more subdued.

                                I've tried a lot of his selections and do agree with most of his recommendations. But my go to bourbons are - Four Roses Single Barrel, Russell's Reserve Single Barrel, Blanton's Single Barrel, Knob Creek Single Barrel.

                                I've got a bottle of Pikesville Rye I'm gonna go to town on at Christmas. Spicy but I've let it sit after I opened it for over a month so I've heard it starts to mellow out after that.
