I’d rather be stuck drinking WT101 the rest of my life than having to buddy up with a total wine rep and tell him his Nevada Slim rotgut cinnamon peach Hoover Dam edition whiskey was a great pick in order to get Blanton’s

Nothing good ever happens from trying to talk to TW shills.  At least you might actually get something out of Twin and Spec’s.

Bought my first MGP today. Was recommended by my FiL’s neighborhood liquor store guy. He said his big whiskey clients have been snatching it up.

Just opened it up, and it’s pretty good. A lot going on for $32. And a pretty nice finish for 92 proof (or maybe that's the weed I smoked shortly before drinking).

I’m sure this violates some sort of board rule, but oh well. Not terrible odds with only 1,000 tickets being sold, and honestly that Stagg is a 2015 I think, which has value on its own. FYI

There are no rules here, thanks for sharing.  Frankly I wish more folks would share raffles (preferably with better odds, though 😉).

Swung by the small liquor store near our family farm in Illinois. No good finds, but at least the baselines are available.

Don’t tell anyone on here what you stepped in.

They will descend on it like locusts.

Fight me.

Go get you a bottle of Lagavulin 16 or even 8 and mix it 1:1 with coke. A "smokey cokey". Good stuff

I’d bet that’s tasty. Not sure I’d pay $130 for it though. I felt the $90-100 retail for the non store pick was a bit much honestly.

This is good.

Indeed it is - If you ever find the Double Oak, pull the trigger immediately. I’m lucky to live very close and try nearly everything they produce, but keep coming back to that gem.

MGP rye is even better than MGP bourbon

What is our collective opinion about Noah's Mill? Went into Total Wine and didn't find anything interesting, so almost grabbed a NM.

I’m no expert, and I don’t like to say a particular bourbon is bad. Only that I didn’t like the taste. That doesn’t apply to Noah’s..... that is bad bourbon.

I believe it sourced by Willett, so it’s not good.

Noah’s Mill got its name because it was originally really good sourced 15 year old bourbon. Willet sourced it from Heaven Hill...allegedly. After it became a thing and probably because they ran out of the good 15 year stuff, they dropped the age statement and blend from bourbon that is rumored to be 4 year to 20 year stuff. Willet still sources it, rumored to be mixed from Heaven Hill and Beam. Who knows. But after the name became popular, the quality went down. I’m sure it’s still fine, but you might be able to get better stuff for $60 on the shelf.

Old Forester 1920 and Russell's Reserve SiB are my favorite buys (so far) around or under  $60.

Ok bourbon snobs, I love reading this thread because I find it relaxing for some reason. And informative. I've gotten to try a few ones I liked from seeing it here so thank you guys for that. 

So I went to help out my sister in law today and stopped off at a Liquor King in her hood and saw some stuff I've never seen in my usual total wine/specs trips. Maybe you gents can take a look and tell me if anything here is worth the dough. I'm a wheater fan and picked up a bottle of Weller from them on this trip but will go back for more stuff if it's interesting. 

First up is their shelf of store pics

Ive never seen this particular wild turkey

PHOTO-20200911-200957.jpg

Or this Bulleit

And I know several of you like the Old Scout but I was intrigued by their wheat one I've never seen before

I’d buy the Rare Breed and roll the dice with the Blender’s Select.

Zykan dropped one interesting piece of info during her third appearance on Bourbon Pursuit. Old Forester 100 is a blend of 4,6, and 8 year product. She said much of their 8 year inventory is dedicated to it. Not bad for $22. 
 

She also said every OF product is at least 4 years old.

Now this is the excellent info I don't pay you blokes for. I bought a 1920 a few weeks ago and like it. Got a weller today and I've never tried weller so looking forward to it. 

They also had a Master's Keep Rye but I'm not paying that much for this stuff
