Everyone has different tastes, but I think the Double Oak is fantastic and Longbranch is meh.

That Double Oaked is definitely a great pour. Longbranch is good as well.

So many good ones now. I started a bourbon tasting group in my neighborhood to facilitate tasting more offerings without having to buy another bottle each time I wanted to try a new one.

Recent tastings that I liked:
TX Distilleries barrel select
Buffalo Trace
Black Saddle
Horse Soldier barrel strength
Jefferson Ocean
Elijah Craig small batch

Picked up a bottle of Weller 107 and Blanton’s this week. I would think the antique collection should drop soon.

Elijah Craig Barrel Proof is one of my new favorites! Also really like Old Forrester 1920.

Still looking for Mitchers Toasted and 1892 Sweet Wheat.

I've been on a Forty Creek kick for a while now.....drinking what I call the yellow label. Picked up one of these the other day a don't care for it at all.....too much of a licorice aftertaste to me.

I'm not much of a whisky connoisseur and can't see anything different on the labels but the white label definitely tastes different from the yellow label.

Love ECBP and haven't seen the most recent batch you have. Glad to see the proof is back up in the 130s. The B519 was only 122 proof and didn't have the typical ECBP tastes you expect.

So I went ahead and splurged a good bit. Bought this Bourbon advent calendar, mainly because I get to try 24 different ones.

https://www.lochfynewhiskies.com/the...yABEgKTCfD_BwE

I paid less than the price shown, but it was here in just a few days. Ready for Sunday to open the first one.

I picked one of those Toasted Barrel Sour Mash Whiskeys a couple months ago, but haven't opened yet. I was thinking about just trading it for something I know I like, but might open it if you give a favorable review. The Toasted Barrel Bourbon is great, so I bet this was is good too.

Keep an eye out. Yearly allotments are hitting the stores. Best chance to snag a bottle of Blantons, etc.
