And on sale. Amazing. I could be wrong here, but it looks like the 2017 bottle. I remember the blue label and the really pale white cork.

Hilarious that the Woodford Reserve is DOUBLE the price. It must have been an interesting day for the guy with the label maker. 

You're a good person. I would have bought all 4.

Woodford Reserve Batch Proof is a solid proofer. I’ll just leave it at that. It’s probably an annual buy for me, but nothing special. 

If you’re looking for a similar, but superior flavor profile, I’d recommend Jack Daniels Single Barrel Barrel Proof.

I looked at a party source jd barrel proof store pick for a solid minute and the employee actually talked me out of buying it a week ago. Mistake it sounds like?

They sell half bottles if you’re worried about taking the plunge. I like it, and that seems to be the popular opinion. No trace of charcoal.

Good to know. The non store picks are always there and I think I've seen 375s, so I'll have to try it.

Not thrilled with everything on r/bourbon, but Jack Daniel’s Single Barrel Barrel Proof and Bowman Bros Single Barrel see to be their open secrets. 

I think most people understand and recognize Knob Creek SiB picks are awesome.

I wish I bought a Balmorhea 375 last year. I’d rather get out of my system at $60 instead of $140. 

Jack gets a bad rap of Old No. 7 and whatever that Sinatra bottle is. SiB Barrel Proof, Gentleman Jack, and SiB Rye are all solid. I’m sure it was much better when everything was handmade, but Old No. 7 was allocated from the mid 50’s to the mid 70’s. I’ve heard anecdotes about it being Pappy hard to find for about 20 years. Pretty wild.

Managed to grab two WT 17 Bottled in Bond in the last week.  Cracked one and it’s really good, but possibly a bit behind Decades and not too much better than the Spec’s Kentucky Spirit pick I grabbed around the same time.  Don’t get all butt hurt if you missed out.  But do ask your local Spec’s guy to see if any stores around you have the Kentucky Spirit pick.  
 

Also, Twin was co-packing Leviathan Red Blend wine and OWA store picks for father’ day.  Slammed the wine with some steak and shelved the OWA for when my current pick is gone.

Finally landed a Rebel Yell 10 year single barrel. I got lucky on the Total Wine app this afternoon and was shocked when they confirmed the order. During the drive to pick it up I kept telling myself that someone grabbed a Rebel Yell 100, but sure enough they got it right. 

I’m shocked that something so allocated made it to their app for sale. Hopefully this is a good sign for the future.

This is exactly how I landed two bottles of Little Book 4  Little Book Chapter 3.

Well, this week’s outlook just perked up!

Also, came across this OF100 (straight bourbon) which I don’t believe I’ve seen before...

Darn the Baker's Single Barrels are getting younger. 8.5 years was the norm since new bottle came out.

Yeah, noticed that, but I’m hoping the profile is similar. I guess we’ll see, but won’t feel too bad for $50.

On the back of that SAOS, does it say distilled in Tennessee or Indiana?
If it's Tenn, that's Dickel and a HARD pass for me.  If it's MGP, then you gotta good fucking bottle.

Me either, and apparently very few out there liked it since they went back to young MGP again

Knob Creek 15 has hit Houston. 

Get yourself a KC 15 year store pick and save yourself 40 bucks. Also, the proof on the store picks is 120 compared to 100 for the KC15. 

With these new KC age stated releases this year (12 and 15) I have a bad feeling that the 12/14/15 year KC store picks won’t be around much longer. I hope I’m wrong.

They are gone after this year.

Pretty dumb of them to do that if you ask me.  The store picks are a great buy at $60, but a proofed down version is nowhere near worth $100.

Pretty tough to find and usually at smaller, neighborhood stores.
