Last time I bought a SR it was ~$30 but that was over a year ago. Taste-wise it's alright but it's a far cry from OWA.

The last OWA I bought (store pick) a few months ago was $90.

Enjoy!

Don’t do that...I’ll ship you some.
If you like them Pm me and I’ll send/trade you at Retail $25/$50. I just can’t bear to See the gouging at retailers!

They are both very nice at the retail price. Honestly I don't find much advantage to any Whisky at secondary prices much beyond Curiosity and cool factor.

This. After reading and hearing about Weller and not having ever tried it, I figured I'd give them a whirl. This particular store had some of the real big guys for over $1,000 per! Insanity.

I'm a big fan of Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit Single Barrel. Does anyone have any info on where the sweet spots are in the Wild Turkey warehouses? In general, where do sweet spots normally occur? What is the normal layout of one of their aging warehouses (#rows high, #barrels deep, #barrels long)? Thanks for any info/insight!

I suppose we should find a retailer or restaurant willing to participate.
Still working on this but in another state, I’ll try and keep you posted.

Had a larger-than-I-should-have pour of Stagg Jr. last night. It's damn good stuff! Hot, so needs a little ice/water...but delicious.

Recently started buying various bourbons to try. I was able to grab my first bottle of Blantons, for retail. I had a decent pour two nights in a row but I am not impressed. At the 60 bucks I paid, its fine, but I would be pretty upset at tasting this for some of the secondary prices.

It's overrated and not worth $60 IMO.

I have definitely had lots I liked better than others. Some are richer and rounder, some seem a bit linear. I only really find that in 1:10 or 1:12 bottles.

Respectfully disagree, hard to beat at $60.I have a large stash , most sub $50.and would never pay some of the prices I see now.Love the SFTB , the Gold not so much.

With you on this across the board, although you'll probably cringe to know that I love it in Manhattans. Not as big of a fan of the Gold, which I picked up a couple of times for pretty cheap (~$90). I have not opened my SFTB, but instead just stare at it a lot while I'm in meetings :D

Can’t think of another whisky I’d rather have at $60, not counting stuff like w12. I have like 10 cases of it, it’s my house whisky.

Agree 100% that ER is great, and it's readily available in WA state. Not as big of a fan for Buffalo Trace for manhattans. Funny now that you mention it, I've rotated BT out of my regular line-up. My local QFC has a $26 EC store-pick that I backstopped pretty hard and I've been using that as a mixer. Aside from the EC SP being a great bottle... buying has helped out quite a bit with proactive texts from their liquor department :D

I've got 5 bottles of Blanton's at the moment... but SR is a ghost here. The two bottles I've got on my shelf are >1 year old.

Other one that has more or less vanished is Willett Rye. Somebody needs to tell Jason to quite being so goddamn good at his job.

Do you just mean Gold isn’t worth the higher price or is it a different style? I brought a bottle back from Japan, where it was quite cheap, but I’ve never liked it much. Because of that I never bothered to try the regular one. My bottle of Gold has a particularly strong toasted/burnt oak character that doesn’t appeal to me.

My experience with the Gold (checking in ~6 months ago) has always been that it's hot. I don't remember the oak as much as I remember it being thin with heavy alcohol on the nose and finish. I drink quite a bit of Barrel Proof/Full Proof bourbon and most of those bottles have a better balance between the alcohol and oak (see EC BP B520, Larceny BP, Stagg Jr, etc.). YMMV, that's just been my experience.

I’m a big fan of the gold but only have a couple bottles so drink it infrequently.

They do ship to CA. Their sales are only one day. The one they had last week with 20% off still wines was absurd.

Anybody have experience with Woodinville bourbon?Sad to say I’ve never tried it.Our club is looking into getting a couple barrels.Thanks ahead of time.Nevermind,got a bottle.Update, this has a lot of spice and apple tones, for 90 proof it punches above its $40 price point.
Have some barrel strength samples coming in the next couple weeks.WILL REPORT BACK!

Sorry I didn't see this, Mike. I like Woodinville Bourbon...decent stuff given the price, as you pointed out.

No worries Brandon, I’m excited to try the barrel proof stuff, could be Apple pie on steroids with vanilla ice cream [cheers.gif]

Three more days in my dry February. Bourbon or rye sounds really, really good right now!

Here are the options I am considering for my first dram:

- Old Forrester 1920 - like comfort food
- Old Forrester Single Barrel (store pick)
- Russell's Private Reserve Single Barrel (store pick)
- Hill Rock Solera
- Redemption High Rye Single Barrel Select
- Four Roses Single Barrel
- Chattanooga Whisky Straight Cask Strength
- Kentucky Owl 10 Year Small Batch Rye (114 proof)
- Whistle Pig Boss Hog Samurai Rye (120 proof)

Or maybe a great Burgundy
