    That sounds incredibly delicious.
    A few others as well but this was the most exciting

      Still loving this thread. I'm more of a low-end guy but i've found some great drinks thanks to you guys. So far I've tried:
      W.L. Weller Special Reserve (This and Buffalo Trace are now my top cheap bourbons)
      Rittenhouse Rye (Good)
      Four Roses Single Barrel (My roomate hasn't touched this after the infamous shots, so I've started sipping on it, love it)
      Larceny (OK)
      Old Grand-Dad Bottled in Bond (Not sure if I like this one yet)
      Picked up a bottle of Lexington today, pretty good neat.

        +1 on those 2. Try Weller 107 if you can. It has a red cap rather than green. Drinks closer to a knob creek or bookers (with regards for bite)

          Currently working through a bottle of Woodford Reserve - nice touch of a rye spice to it, as opposed to more sweeter bourbons - or so it seems. That said, I think I'll go back to Buffalo Trace after this bottle. Tough, IMO, to beat BT for the price point.

          On the Rye side, so far my tastes have fallen deep under the Sazerac spell.

          I'm sure I've mentioned these before, but since the thread popped back up on my radar, well.. there it is.

            I like Woodford Reserve a lot too. If you're ever near their distillery in Kentucky, go and take the tour. It is one of the greatest places on earth.

                Jeez man. Every now and then I worry that I drink too much beer. Then I see pics like this and feel better :P

                    Killed a bottle of Bulleit 10 Year Barrel Aged; first time I'd seen they had a 10 year. Was really surprised with how good it was and it's pretty affordable. Nice smooth taste; like bullet without as much bite. Recommend it as a solid and drinkable Bourbon.

                        As long as we're bragging here, I had the distinct pleasure of trying Pappy 23 year on a bachelor party and it changed my life. I probably won't be forking over $300+ for a bottle any time soon though (even if I could find one).

                        I buddy of mine and I did a blind test with 4 bourbon/ryes last weekend and we favored W.L. Weller 12 year (per recommendation on Alton Browncast) and Buffalo Trace. Woodford was last for both of us, and Knob Creek was 3/4.

                          I love WL Weller 12. I do a blend of Weller 12 and Weller Antique 107 (40/60) that is fantastic if you let it sit for 2 or so weeks.

                            Anyone tried the Breaking and Entering Bourbon? It's from a distillery out in San Francisco. Solid stuff and not too price although only been able to find it in the massive liquor stores here in TX.

                              Sounds interesting...might have to give that a try!

                                Did not know that. Then again, there are many brands/sub-brands that are shared which I don't know about. Seem to hear a new one all the time. Good to know.
