I did the same, and recently... regretting it now, but passing on nearly any bottle of bourbon yields a form of regret.

I can’t remember the 2017-03 release. I’m sure a poster can help me out here. 2018-03 was Kentucky Chew. Phenomenal. 2019-03 was Country Ham. There’s a good chance 2020-03 is going to be really good.

I liked Shiny, but I passed when I saw some recently. It’s good enough to buy once, but it’s not worth the encore in my opinion. 
 

Kentucky Chew was on another level. 

You should try Center Cut

It was Front Porch.  It was just OK to me.

Still sitting on an unopened bottle. If you frequent the steak thread you’d understand why it made its way to me.

That's a good list.  I'd sub in OF Rye for Rittenhouse, but both are worthy.  I'd also mention regular ol' BT as a daily drinker.

I like this, though I'd give my left nut to find ER10 for sub $35. I've never paid less than $50, but I still thought it was worth it. 

Second the motion to place Buffalo Trace as an Everyday Drinker.

PM me. I know a place, but you're going to have to pay shipping.

Picked these up today and going to break into them. One on the right was the #1 rated Whiskey in 2019.

The Dickel tasted like someone dropped a bottle of multivitamins into a bottle of Jim Beam.  Worst bottle I've ever had, even as a mixer.  Hopefully your experience is better.

Disappointing to hear for sure... I haven't opened it yet but the 1792 has been good. Maybe I will just gift the Dickel to a "friend"

Kroger has packer choice briskets for $1.99 on sale. One will be smoked this weekend.

 

Edit: wrong thread. And no bourbon yet!

Browsing target bourbon section, saw the latest angels envy cellar collection tawny port release sitting with the normal bourbon, no price. Took it to the register to check out and it wouldn't ring up as anything, so I offered up 50 bucks since that is the normal bourbon price. She said how about 20 and have a happy quarantine? 

Fuck yes to this day

I’ll offer Early Times BiB as a friendly amendment.

I thought about it. It’s definitely good and priced really well, especially for a liter.

You and I value our left nuts very differently.

 So had to check what I had grabbed. Turns out I did get a ham.

Third the BT as a everyday drinker. Just today I braved the plague to meet a Facebook bourbon group member in a Target parking lot, for BT store picks @35.

Here in Va. it's easier to find ER at $32 in many of our state run stores, but almost impossible to find BT @ $28, and ER is the better pour all day in my opinion. I can't even remember that last time I saw BT in the wild.

Well I broke my own bargain guidelines today, and reached for the Pikesville over Rittenhouse. Pikesville is so good, I think it's still under priced in the low $40 range.

Low 40s at the Big Box stores, $50 at the Mom and Pop

Little Book is in Amarillo, will run back into town in the morning and grab it.

I have a 2015-01 Big Man, Small Batch, wonder how much difference there is between the two?

Ch 3 is my favorite.
It’s a blend of Booker’s, Knob Creek, Baker’s and Basil Hayden.
Freddie got this one right.

Just got an email back from the best bourbon bar in town and they’re selling off stock next week... let’s see what we can secure!

Recommend calling your local haunts to be sure.

Breaking my rye cherry tonight with some Old Forester rye. Wanted to go with a more budget option before moving up to the pricier bottles, but in my experience OF delivers great bang for your buck.

Alright, I've always been too lazy to figure out how to post images here, it has to come from something like imgur right? Drank some old rip 10 tonight with the in laws.
