Bottle of Elijah Craig Toasted Barrel With Char # 1 StaveElijah Craig Toasted Barrel Bourbon

Interesting , but somewhat , shall we say simpler, (not to use the dirty word-light) expression of an Elijah Craig bourbon. Buy to compare to their other expressions and maybe use to break the newbies in.

Evan Williams 1783 Small Batch

Type:

One of the cheapest drinkable bourbons around . Usually can be found for $20 or so which is a steal these days for anything in a glass bottle and halfway decent.

George T. Stagg 2011 Release

Type:

The 2011 release is somewhat less fruitier on the noise and is generally a bit lighter in character despite one of the higher barrel proofs in a while.

Heaven Hill 27 Year Old Barrel Proof Bourbon

A stunning achievement in both whiskey distilling and aging. While Parker Beam did not live to see this whiskey bottled I am sure he would be proud of it.

Heaven Hill Heritage Collection 1st Edition

Type:

Decent if not spectacular. More of an investment than a drinking bottle for the low-life bottom feeders that engage in such a trade as it will no doubt be a limited edition and much sought-after bottle. Yes, I think a Heaven Hill aficionado would enjoy it quite a bit and it is worth trying if you can, but maybe not buying an entire bottle as it is pricey for what it is. Leave it to the speculators and shallow egotists and buy some of their more modestly priced releases for enjoyment.

Heaven Hill Heritage Collection The Third Edition 2024 Release

Type:

Damn fine bourbon, but hard to find and pricey. But this of course could be said about almost any whiskey worth drinking these days sad to say !
If you compare it to say Pappy Van Winkle 15 I would grab a bottle of this . An under appreciated whiskey !

Jim Beam Black Label

Decent if a trifle simple. Available almost anywhere and a reliable choice.

Jim Beam White Label

Light, easy to drink, but not a lot going on flavor wise. Simple, easy, and cheap.
