Can you really count Bourbon Cream?

Here's mine:

Buffalo Trace (the daily driker)
Bakers
George T Stagg
Pappy 23
Ezra B 12 year old (Meh)
Thomas Handy Sazerac Rye
4 mason jars of uncut moonshine

I don't mind Scotch if it isn't a mouthful of peat, so:
The Balvenie 12 year old DoubleWood
The Balvenie 17 year old DoubleWood
Dalwhinnie 15 year old

TuteTibiImperes: Uncut, unfiltered, bottled at cask strength, aged between 6 and 8 years before bottling. There's some variation bottle to bottle, and a sprinkle of water to open it up helps because the alcohol content is higher than average (121-127 proof). It's a big whiskey, so if you like big smoky, spicy, with a lot going on type liquors, it could be right up your alley.


Mine was 130.6 proof. Was. Need another bottle now. Really good. I will admit to making some old fashioneds with it though. Nothing like having a full blown cocktail where the total proof is still more than a typical shot.

GrapeJack: demaL-demaL-yeH: GrapeJack: Putting it out there... Rye.

Nice.

/It isn't bourbon.

It's a great compromise. Scotch people who say bourbon is too sweet and not complex... Rye.

Bourbon drinkers too cheap to buy good enough Scotch...Rye.

Solved itself.


Bourbon, Scotch, and rye all have their place. And that place is in my glass. Seriously, they're all different and all wonderful. I'll throw Irish in there, too. Canadian whiskey, now, I'm not sure about.

My reason is that I have a temporary crown that fell off on Thanksgiving day. I've been on Tylenol ever since trying to stay sane until I can get to my %$#@ing dentist tomorrow to have it re-cemented. I haven't had a drink since last Wednesday.

My bottle of Bulleit is getting lonely but my liver appreciates the holiday.

Anderson's Pooper: TuteTibiImperes: liquor store closing sale

How the hell do you lose money running a liquor store to the point it has to close?


No clue. It was in FL as well, known to be populated with folks who aren't afraid of a drink. The owner also had a real estate business, I think he wanted to concentrate more on that. I made out like a bandit on the closing sale though - Booker's, Baker's, Laphroaig 10 year, Oban 14 year, Macallan Sherry Oak, and some assorted cheap mixer stuff.

13 -- unopened bottles of bourbon make me sad


I have a couple unopened bottles of Booker's that I picked up for half off at a liquor store closing sale. It's by far my favorite bourbon, but nine times out of ten I end up reaching for a bottle of Ezra Brooks or Evan Williams when I'm making a drink, figuring I'm saving the good stuff for a special occasion.
