This might be the most complex one in my collection. Every sip tastes different. I canít tell you if I love it or hate it. Ha. Itís extremely unique. For the price and how different it is, Iíll say pass. 200 more dollas getís ya Boss Hogg Black Prince which is exceptional.

The Blended or the straight bourbon? I do not like their bourbon nearly as much.

Anybody know where I can find a bottle of a MidWinter Nights dram? Or what time of year I need to start looking for it? I had some the other night at a local bar and really liked the stuff

Finding it on a shelf is not an easy thing even when itís supposed to be out. I would be surprised if a bottle is on a shelf anywhere for retail still

Iím a fan of all the Whistle Pig line up. I do however feel they get a little over the top price wise on their flagship bottles for what they are. Therefore with them, I stay in the Farmstock realm.

I prefer to spend what they demand for their Boss Hog on a higher end Bourbon . I love Rye, but $450 a bottle ? For a bottle of wheaties? Nah.

Did a Scotch tasting at a friendís house last week. Had a great time and we decided we would do a bourbon tasting at my house tonight. Here is my contribution and others are bringing bottles of ETL, regular Blantons, Bookers 30th, Barterhouse, Rhetoric 25, etc.

Now I just have to find all my Glencairns.

Well I’ve stayed away from this thread (and the liquor stores) for as long as possible. I had an appointment Friday on the opposite side of town so I stopped in a store close by and I’m glad I did!

Got a little display now. Still building our collection and refining our tastes. We like some very bottom end stuff and also very much like what we would consider higher end stuff.

$39/bottle for the Willett at the twin liquors sale. Never been a rye person but figured Iíd give it a try.

The sales guy talked me into the bardstown estate. $25 so figured itís worth a shot.
