  1. I lived there for nearly 4 years before having to move back for family reasons in May. I loved it. Happy to answer any questions about pros/cons.

    Bourbon

    Has anyone made the trek out to Hye for the annual Cowboy release? I’m thinking about doing and wondering just how early I need to be there to make sure I walk away with a bottle. It doesn’t feel like a situation where I have to be there super early but I really have no historical context for that theory.

    Yeah Sam Houston 14 is a great pour. Glad to have a bottle in my collection.

    So, Discovery Series 3 is another clear winner. It checks all of the boxes for me. These guys are putting out some fantastic blends right now.

    Eagle Rare is a fine bourbon, and a great value at MSRP. It really starts to fall apart once the price point creeps north of $35-$40. It’s not complex in anyway whatsoever, but it’s one of the best baseline expressions around. It’s a bit of an odd product in the sense that it’s been referred to as underrated so much that it has now become a bit overrated.

    For now, it definitely is. Mind you, the Discovery is twice the price. That said, it’s a much better product. The Fusion is 60% Bardstown’s juice, which is still on the young side. I hit about 5-6 stores today and I saw Discovery series 2 and 3, as well as The Prisoner collaboration bottle (also excellent). It’s out there if you look for it.

    Today’s haul. I loved series 2, so my hopes for series 3 are pretty high.

    If you’re in the greater ATX area, buy the LB4. If you don’t love it, drop me a message and I’ll buy it off you at full boat. Love that stuff.

    Talk to me about that Belfour LE Rye. Their standard Rye ain’t half bad, if not a bit overpriced. There is little to no info on the higher end Rye. How is it?

    I fucking love LB4. I have two other buddies deep in the bourbon game that feel the same way. I’d buy a second if I happened to run across one.

    The OF barrel proof is supposed to hit by the end of the month.

    Texas BBQ

    So I’m off this week and want to hit up a non-Austin BBQ place with my old man. The tl;dr version is that he has stage 4 prostate cancer and I don’t know how much longer I’ll have with him. I thought it would make for a fun day to road trip to a great BBQ spot for lunch. I moved out of Texas in 2016 and only recently moved back, so I am not as in tune with the current state of BBQ spots outside of Austin. The options I have considered are Black’s, Cooper’s, and Luling City Market, but that’s all based on my BBQ knowledge before leaving for a minute. So, my question to all of you is simple. Where would you recommend we go that is 3 hours or less from Austin?
