Oh wow. We work with a bunch of Canadians so hopefully I never have a Blantons issue again. My regulars would be worse if I hadn’t had 2-3 others given as gifts

Anybody tried this? Iíve had it before while traveling out of state and finally saw a bottle locally and picked it up. I really like it and hope it gets distributed here on a regular basis.

Iím a relative nubie to drinking whiskey 🥃 say maybe 7-8 years ?

Started off drinking Crown Royal. Got drunk a few times on it and enjoyed it enough to drink Crown Royal Reserve.

Thought I was drinking the sheeeeetz all these years until the hottie I was dating bought be a bottle of Woodford Double Oaked Reserve , which said ďbourbonĒ for hooking her up on her Benz lease. Tasted great and opened my mind to try new and different whiskey.

So I start learning Rye whiskey, Sour mash whiskey and Malt whiskey. Wow !

So I read up on them. I found out the good ole USA has stringent rules for labeling whiskey 🥃 based on content of its mix. 51% rye is minimum to be called whiskey, 51% sour mash for Bourbon 🥃.

Meanwhile in Canada ? No rules. They can call a bourbon a whiskey if they like or a whiskey a bourbon without the contents being dominant % wise.

I know most of you guys knew this already ! But being Italian, and more of a Vino drinker most my life, it was an eye opener. I might have the facts off a bit, but it was a great Wikipedia read for me.

Iíve decided I prefer the USA whiskey and Rye over the bourbon(corn), and Iím not much for the Canadian stuff anymore ,,,, lol

My wife says I am grumpy and opinionated too, but I think that is fake news! I know for a fact I get less grumpy when drinking bourbon!

Said Adios to my Barterhouse, which means I have more room for another bottle to be pulled from the bunker.

Yep. Spec's is the only place I have ever seen them and the cost per mL is double what the cost is for a regular bottle.

Surprisingly good for it's price. We don't get it in S La much, I usually buy a bottle or two when traveling. Last 1.75 I got in Alabama was in a plastic bottle

Interesting. Donít see many bad reviews on 1792. Guess you got a bad barrel. Thatís the risk with single barrels.
