If you like the baby blue try the brimstone. They actually smoke it after distilling. Itís not for every night, but it is original and goes perfectly with steak and BBQ

Glad you liked it. It is really good with a splash of ginger ale as well.

I have always considered myself a Scotch man, but this Bourbon will be with me at a few camp fires moving forward. *****.

Go get y'all a bottle of Rebecca Creek or Texas Ranger. Rebecca for you who enjoy more of a bourbon profile, and Ranger for you who like a little sweeter blended whiskey

I’m gonna be sad when this one is done. It’s the 2015 and the 2017 has a different mash bill. Both were very highly rated and big with awards. I have high hopes though with the 2017 adding wheat from the previous 100% corn.

Pulled out the Willett tonight and as mentioned it was great if you like a rye. Heavy rye spice up front and a nice mellow finish. Thank goodness for this thread

I have not had rye. How does it differ from Bourbon or Scotch?

It has a distinct flavor but much easier to get used to than Scotch IMO. I like the spice it gives and makes it different.

Not as fancy as many posted here, but that 46 I posted the other day was actually pretty good to my tastes. I like it better than Blanton's.

bphillips have you tried the 2018 release yet ? My son is picking me up a bottle. He did mention seeing the Cowboy Bourbon at Halls on 121, don't know which batch though. Pretty pricey to say the least.

2018 release of which one?

It is expensive but itís great especially if you like the full experience of a fine whiskey. The nose, palate, and finish are what they should be at the price

I have two bottles of the Garrison Small Batch and I don't like them at all. I got them as a gift when I went to distillery. I will take Blantons, Weller 12, Willett or Belle Meade any day. This was like 10 years ago.

I havenít had the small batch. Blantons is good but itís better for gifting than drinking at its price range now. Lots of good ones out there

46 is no doubt a winner in its price range and even above.

As for rye. It definitely has its own taste. I hate it, I mean HATE it. I can drink some scotch... but never found one that was ďthe oneĒ or worth 1/2 itís price (to me).... but bourbon is/ has gotten out of hand for the most part as well. Eagle rare is a good drink for $28.... horrible for $47. Blantons was great @ $49... not so good @ $75.

Thankfully tequila isnít ď the in drinkĒ.... itís all I got left

2018 Texas Straight Bourbon Whiskey is out now and it has a extra year of aging due to no bottles last year.
The Cowboy is $190 at Halls.

Had the ocean, it's good, but that is about 20 more than I paid.

Itís not cheap, thatís for sure. But Iíve been working for 44 years now and have decided that Iím not real smart and need to take opportunities as they come by, quit waiting on the perfect time. Last longer that an expensive bottle of wine and it made some of my friends very happy when we had some.

Opened it last night with the bourbon 🥃 boys, failed to impress and did not live up to its price tag IMHO. . Will see if it taste better in a few months.
