    Anyone ever try OGD 114?
    A buddy and I recently came upon a review of underdog bourbons and saw the OGD 114 and i was very curious of the real-world tasting notes

    Mossy,
    Primarily bc the larger markets get higher allocation allotments. Whether the bottles are on limited availability or not

    Found this Bourbon Time set @ The Wine Guy yesterday and grabbed it...3 small bottles, but they are great flavors!

    Last night was the first time I've tried the Jim Beam Black and have to say, it hours down really easy. It has a nice sweet flavor without any burn, and the finish has I mild spice to it. Not as much flavor as the signature reserve (that seems to be really hard to find), but av step up from the white bottle for those starting pour on their bourbon journey.

    I scored 5 bottles of batch 12 and 1 bottle of batch 13 of Stagg Jr. Now I can’t find any. And BT products are impossible to find in SC.

    It was hard pre-pandemic, it's impossible now.

    Damn, show a little love, players. This thread is older than my son, and was migrated from Canada as well. Closing in on 9,000 views.

    Just FYI there will be some allocated bottles of High West (which are know for eclectic blending) American Prairie bourbon (finished in aquavit) and their Double rye (finished in Pineau des Charentes). Both finishes are special barrel selects and will be available next month. Both are an amazing finish and will be sold by one store in the city. The Aquavit has heat and dill spice notes to bost the mellow characteristics of the original bourbon and the Pineau des Charentas adds complex notes of molasses, nutmeg, toffee and brittle. More info to follow soon

    This bourbon is absolutely delicious! It is super smooth for a 115 proof whiskey; highly recommended (sorry my pallet isn't more descriptive).
    I haven’t tried the cask strength in Metallica’s bourbon. I guess maybe when i head over to pick up that charger from you 😆

    The Elijah Craig small batch is so highly overlooked and is an amazing value for that flavor and mash bill.

    Sometimes bro you have to open it and let it breathe for awhile before consumption

    Good point, especially on the barrel proof level. I even remember certain parts of the rickhouse being hotter so they rotate barrels in Aging. However...with small batch the do mix barrels though so they have some control on the proof of the product. EVERY single bottle of small batch Elijah Craig for the last few years was at that very same proof. Not a coincidence.

    Blended bourbons (90-80 proof) are all carefully watered down. Makers now makes a barrel proof too which is interesting.
