Buddy said it was the "Single Barrel" stuff. He's a rep for Island Oasis and gets around. Pretty sure he brought a bottle last year and said it was like sub $30...I got to googling and found a review, but I know nothing of the site. Just check out what it made the Top 10 with

Buddy''s wife is from Kentucky...she's got a lot of bottles like these. Sometimes, we get to drink them..I don't think it's anything special other than the bottle, but cool nonetheless

Evan Williams single barrel
Eagle Rare
McKenna single barrel
Four Roses

Are my everyday drinkers

Col EH Taylor single barrel and small batch when I can get them are my favorites

Picked up a bottle of Old Forester Birthday Bourbon today and a EC barrel proof. Saving them for a special occasion

To my NC peeps this is a good week to visit your ABC on their delivery day,

I'm currently going through a bottle of Bulliet after a bottle of Four Roses Small Batch. Both very drinkable.

As an aside, when I visited my daughter in the DC area over the summer she took me to the Jack Rose Dining Saloon. Quite impressive collection!

OP(or someone) should keep track of the "list" in the first post...list suggestions and people can try and, maybe, create a list of THT's suggested bourbons...I've already forgotten what was on the first page. That way, when I hit up the store, I can come to this thread, find the list and pick one..or 3

Good thread. I'm a big fan of Bulliet and Jefferson. Bought 4 Roses single barrel recently, not too impressed. Always looking for something good in that $30 price range.

80 bottles? Damn.


I'm with you on Angels Envy; ok but I'm not a fan. Total Wine had it on the shelf with a tag saying "rated 98 points" and there is no way I would rate it above 88.

At different price points, I like:

$ 80-110... Garrison Brothers, Whistlepeg (Rye),
$ 50-60... Bookers, Hudson Baby Bourbon, Balcones Baby Blue
$ 30-40... Knob Creek, Willett, Jefferson, Prichards
$ 20... Elijah Craig
