I’d say I’ve got a decent collection going. I could have more but I’m not paying triple the MSRP price for some things. What bottle are you guys cracking open for Christmas Eve tonight? I may go with the Jack Single barrel select store pick or good ol Grandad 114. Merry Christmas Eve to all.

Never had the Old Fitzgerald, how is that? Blue Run is pretty good but that is pretty pricey for a daily sipper, well for me anyway.

The old Fitzgerald I have is the 11 year fall 2021… I refuse to open it bc it’s such a unicorn bottle. I’m actually seeking another rare one. Old forester “SINGLE BARREL” Rye…. Not the OF rye but Single barrel rye…. Super hard to find. But I sip on $50 to $60 bourbon, the others I won’t open bc I want to collect.

The 1920 is, imo, the best bourbon you can just go buy. Most

[1]
Dec 24, 2021, 3:01 PM

well stocked places have it, don't have to chase it around town. I'm not sure I've ever had anything better. Is a little pricey, but not too bad, can drink on weekends without going broke.

For value, give Dickel a try. All of it is good, but anything above the entry level "8" is, imo, great for the price. The 12, the single barrel, whatever. Actually, the 12 is good enough that I don't see a huge upgrade to the single barrel or small batch. Having said that, a connoisseur buddy of mine who has a bottle of literally everything, swears by the 8 (for the price).

Usually Buffalo Trace, but lately I've been drinking Tin Cup, which is an "american whiskey" but not technically a bourbon.

"AMERICAN WHISKEY CUT with Rocky Mountain water. TINCUP is a classic American Whiskey. It has a bourbon style profile with a bold and spicy finish. TINCUP was made in honor of Colorado's first whiskey drinkers and the tin cups from which they drank. Inspired by the mountains, TINCUP® is a blend of two great American whiskeys. "High-rye" bourbon, distilled and aged in Indiana, is blended with a small amount of rare Colorado single malt whiskey and then cut with Rocky Mountain water.

It's Scotch, not bourbon, but still should be good.

I picked it up a year ago for just a bit more than a bill and it is now retailing for $180.00 to $200.00, so I should sell it.

Opened a bottle of Isaac Bowman tonight that was a gift. Pretty decent, a little sweeter than most but that's expected as it's Port Barrel Finished.
