    REALLY GOOD DAY TODAY!!!!!!

    I wanted a couple more glass so I picked them up with the Crown. I am also told that I need to stop by there on Friday. I guess it pays to buy from the same place a bunch. Well it cost a bunch of money.
    They had some cask strength Four Roses but did not want to spend the money and it like 139 proof.

    I’ve been instructed by a certain Master of the Woods that he wants me to bring you out to his place sometime soon.

    I
    Can report on the Aberlour. Disclaimer: I’m suffering from a raging case of creepy crawly crud. Taste buds are a little shot. However; this stuff is fantastic. Neat, very well balanced. Little heat. Not sherry cask, but Bourbon. Adds heather, honey, raisins, tobacco. If your not feeling the peat, or the sherry, this stuff is your jam. Robust and complex, to me this stuff is delicious. I will be finding a back up bottle of this nectar. Cheers!

    Stopped in the Kannapolis Parkway ABC yesterday and picked up a McKenna 10 and Four Roses SiB. Nothing fancy but two solid bourbons I like to keep around.

    Sorry to diverge from the expensive liquor thread :D

    My latest alchol purchase was Green Man ESB. It was.......meh. I have gotten on the ESB kick since several local breweries have been making some good ones. I like Angry Troll's take on the ESB and I love the Cabarrus ESB on nitro draft.
    A lager honestly doesn't get much better than those 2.

    Not really what I was expecting. Thought it would be a little older. They said that this is all that came in. They also had some Buffalo Trace with a single barrel sticker on it. Not sure if it is different than the regular BT. I have been eyeing the Makers for a few weeks and on another form they were talking about the Haven;'s Door.

    When I got home from work today a friend called and said that he would be in Savannah over the weekend and I knew that he liked Scotch so I ran back to a different package shop. The guy there said that The Balvenie 14 was good and I saw a bottle of Weller SR behind the counter. It had to follow me home. Is that scotch any good?

    I like it, it's not peaty. Definitely an easy drinker without the taste of road tar.

    The missus picked me up a few bottles for my 50th birthday & our 13th anniversary (both coming up right after Christmas). She traditionally gets me a bottle of Oban for our anniversary & the last few years have been either 14, couple different year Distiller's Reserve, or Little Bay, so she stepped it up a little. She also knows that Jameson is my preferred whiskey in almost all its variants (except the Caskmates IPA- gross) & that I'm also a big fan of Glenlivet.

    jameson 18.jpg

    I'm super stoked about that Jameson. Every one of their 18 y/o variants has been superb, so this oughtta be fun at 110 proof. I'll be a good sport & wait till the appropriate celebration to get into them, since she also picked me up a Talisker Storm & a bottle of Kilbeggan.

    If yer a fan of Irish whiskey, the Kilbeggan is a very nice whiskey for a VERY nice price. https://internetwines.com/products/kilbeggan-irish-whiskey

    Alright I've pretty much ended my drinking after getting too carried away for several years. I still for the past 3 years buy a bottle on my birthday to share a sip when friends come over. My favorites were Bullet, Buffalo Trace, and Woodford Reserve. Today's the day and I'm going to buy a bottle, if you could buy a bourbon in the ~40-80$ range what would you get? I wasn't much of fan of the rye blends.

    Thanks

    tod0987, I would look for Buffalo Trace (~$30), one of my go to is Bib & Tucker (~$45) or Basil Hayden (~$45). These are good every day sippers IMHO. Moving up in price and proof, Col. Taylor or Uncle Nearest (100 proof not the 80).

    If you liked Buffalo Trace then the next logical step is to grab the same juice aged longer, Eagle Rare, for $34.95 plus tax.

    Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch at $39.95 is from the same distiller and is generally highly regarded. But also not always easy to find.


    But lots of good choices if those are not available.

    Wild Turkey Distillery is often overlooked but has some SPECTACULAR choices in that price range.

    Wild Turkey Rare Breed and Russell's Reserve are two good ones.

    I REALLY enjoy Old Grand Dad Bonded. It's a favorite of mine and it costs a whooping $23.95.

    Thanks @KnotRight & @thrillhill for the help. I came up with a list and went to the biggest ABC store in Greenville tonight. They didn't have any Colonel (was my first choice) or Eagle Rare. I ended up with a pint of Basil Haydens and a 5th of Bib & Tucker. I've got a good list now and stashed it away for next time. Thanks again & Cheers!
