About This Club

As the title says, this is the place for Bourbon folk.

  1. What's new in this club
  2. Picked up my friend a bottle for his 40th this past weekend... then he proceeds to make old fashions out of the stuff ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  3. I'm out of Double Oaked again. God, I love that bourbon, but I need to slow down a bit.
  4. I added a bottle to my collection when it first came about, but haven’t opened it. Had some at a BBQ/Bourbon tasting the other night in Bardstown...it was pretty good, but IMO a bit over-priced for an 86 Proof pour. I acquired what I can describe as the best bourbon bottle ever...something your wife would love. Double Eagle Very Rare! Probably display it behind the bar for a few years, and then make a killing selling it on the secondary market.
  5. The Longbranch is pretty good. My bottle went relatively quickly.
  6. I'd been out of Double Oaked for quite a while and during the Woodford tasting I was reminded how much I like it. Obviously, I picked up an new bottle.
  7. Last Thursday evening, we went to a little bourbon bistro called the Purple Poulet in Dayton, Ky. They offered flights, so I tried one called "Neighborhood Hooch" which featured bourbons distilled local to the area. It included Riff's OKI, Boone County Eighteen 33, and George Remus. It's too bad OKI is no longer being produced. It was the best of that bunch. Really good. The Eighteen 33 was OK. I didn't like George Remus at all. Hardly any taste, compared to the others, and what there was, wasn't very good. To me anyway.
  8. Single Barrel was $39.99 at Wild Turkey. The sample at the end of the tour included Longbranch, WT101, Russel SB 10yr, and their Rye. I like the Longbranch.
  9. I bought some for a friend last week in Louisville...it was $25.99 (last year it was $20.18) and the single barrel was $55.99. My favorite pour from WT is Rare Breed. We are heading to Bardstown tomorrow.
  10. I can vouch for Angels Envy and Old Forester. Did those in Feb of this year.
  11. If you get to Louavull...Angels Envy, Old Forester, and Copper & Kings Brandy are good tours.
  12. Have heard that that festival is a good time. We've never done it but hope to at some point.
  13. I own acreage in Crestwood...maybe I should start a distillery
  14. We are up in NKY, Cincinnati Metroplex. The people we are staying with want to do the three tours nearer to Lexington. We want to come up for the Bourbon Festival in Bardstown, this year, if we can work it out. Maybe we can do KAD and Peerless, then.
  15. Didn't say I drank it, just using it as trade bait. I have a connection to Fat Dog, and I like to promote the TBA as much as I can. Mrs. S drinks it, though, and my daughter loves Touch. I dearly regret missing your tasting. They are always fun and the selection of bourbons interesting. I was going to bring those Virgil Cane's I picked up, too.
  16. Think the county in TN where they make Jack Daniels is still dry. Can't remember if they allowed a tasting or not.
  17. My wife is from Oldham county (where Crestwood is, the next county over from Jefferson). It's funny because I can remember about 10 years or so ago, it was a dry county like many places in Kentucky were. I still feel strange drinking there, much less going on a distllery tour.
  18. Had to look it up on the map to find Crestwood. Definitely doable if we rent a car next time up there. Most times we just Uber around but if we don't stay downtown we would rent.
  19. To each their own. Kentucky Artisan Distillery is in Crestwood, about 20 minutes up 71 from downtown Louisville.
  20. Always keep Russells Reserve around. That is about the same price point as this area.
  21. Amazing how people's tastes vary. Tried Peerless at the Bourbon Classic back in Louisville in Feb and didn't like. The funny thing is we were hanging out with a group of people and turned out they were from Peerless including the Master Distiller. I'm not a heavy rye guy in most cases. Their bourbon should be out sometime this year IIRC. Guessing it will be a high rye Mashbill. Haven't been to the Artisan Distillers yet. Is that down near Bardstown? Or am I thinking 1792?
  22. What the heck were you doing drinking Vodka? Very disappointed in you. And you missed our tasting because of this trip. I don't know about you Swamprat. I had picked up some different bourbons over the past year to try to have something different for the party. There were a couple finished in wine barrels, Isaac Bowman and Amador. Picked up Longbranch (a collaboration between Jimmy Russell and Mathew McConahey), Old Forrestor 1870. Silver Bull brought a bottle of the OF 1920 which I've had in the past and enjoyed.
  23. If you want to get off the beaten path and you're near Louisville, I recommend Peerless: https://kentuckypeerless.com/ Interesting story, as they were able to revive granddads old distilling license from the 1900's. And their rye is outstanding. Also, Kentucky Artisan Distillers is Crestwood is great. They make Jefferson's, but my favorite there is Whiskey Row which I'm fairly certain you can only find in Kentucky. There's also a brewery next door. https://kentuckyartisandistillery.com/
  24. I sampled several bourbons I had not tried, last night at a friend's home up here in Kentucky. Russell Reserve 10 Year Small Batch was one of them. Very good (or the others were really bad and that just stood out :)). We are taking the distillery tours on Friday. Wild Turkey makes Russell, so I'll see what they have available in the gift shop. RR10SB is only $32, at Krogers.
