George T. Stagg 2011 Release


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.

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.

Bottle of Larceny Barrel Proof A120Larceny Barrel Proof Batch A120


Not only do you get the extra proof but a lot of subtle aging characteristics and aromas that would have been lost in the proofing down process! Worth the extra money for the extra proof and all the goodness that comes with it!

Old Charter


An older style bourbon that just seems a bit tired and light compared to their others.

Old Crow Bourbon

Old Crow lacks character- even bad character- it’s just bland, harsh and ultimately pointless.
