I know its not Whiskey but I do have an old bottle of Popcorn Sutton's Moonshine that I haven't opened in at least 5 years. Anyone know if its worth anything or worth drinking? It has a number on the top and its in a mason jar like picture provided.

if you don't mind paying crazy prices Liquor-Rama off blue mound always has it... be ready though, last time I was there they wanted $500 for the 10year

You may be able to talk them down, I have no interest at it anywhere close to that so I didn't ask. They did have a store pick Blanton's for $70 which was high but not crazy. It took some time after i opened it but it's a good pour

IW Harper 15yr is in stock at Total Wine in Fort Worth, I think they had it at $65. I've told myself that I am drinking more of what I have before I buy any more bottles.

Unless I find ECBP, Elmer T, Michters 10, or any of the Stagg Family at retail. Maybe Blanton's at retail too

Was in a different part of San Antonio and had time to waste so naturally, I hit up a local mom and pop liquor store. This expression is made here in SA grain to glass. Reminds me a lot of Michter's American expression. I need to pay these folks a visit and do the tour.

Just scored 2 more bottles of the Hakushu 12yr!

Last month, Suntory announced its halting sales indefinitely due to a shortage of aged whiskey. Buy it if you see it bc itís delicious and itíll all be gone soon.

Yea, tastes like burnt wood to me. All the Texas bourbons (Ranger Creek, Garrison Bros, and Tx) have the same taste to me, alcohol rapidly aged in small barrels.

Yep. I am not a fan of any of those either (especially TX bourbon), yet they charge a premium price. I think the Texas craft distillers try to cut corners and most sell their bourbon after only aging 4 or so years. I think some will eventually produce a good product, but their is no substitute for age.

How do you suggest that I "proof" a flight? Work lowest to highest proof or jump into the hair of the dog and work down? Honest question, cause I have always wondered.

I donít know there is a right or wrong way. Usually I try to do flights of similar proof, but today I just grabbed three favs and the EC18 is a lower proof than the WLW and ECBP.

Single barrel is somewhat hard to find, and a great bourbon. The small batch is much easier to find. The Barrel Proof is extremely rare. I got lucky at my honey hole liquor store. Held it for me when they got it in.

I found an awesome happy hour spot recently, $3 at 3, $4 at 4, and $5 at 5 for everything on the menu. They have a pretty good menu, but I normally go back to the Dalmore 15.

If any of you fellas are close to the Houston area, let me know and we can grab a drink.
