I have cheap tastes when it comes to Bourbon. I still think the Evan Williams Black Label drinks well out of its price range.   I took this photo last June for National Bourbon day  

The man cave. Lots of dog doors.        

Fixed it.

Liking Larceny small batch. Smooth with spicy mid palette.  Sometimes the ice does enhance the flavor other times it becomes too diluted for my 72 yrs. aged taster. Woodford double aged has never disappointed. Lagavulin, distillers edition 2017 is a great scotch! Hot afternoons call for Patron with lemon and lime.

I take a shot of Bird Dog Whiskey the night prior to the hunt for "Good Luck".   Seems to improve my shooting especially when compared to how well I shoot whilst sitting on my couch watching the news with the gun in the closet.

I thought it was time to revisit this. A new favorite is McKenna 10 year. Also Knob Creek Single Barrel at 120 Proof. 

If you are looking for an inexpensive daily drinker, try Very Old Barton 100 Proof. 

The best $13.99 bourbon you will ever find.

Not Bourbon but you could use it in place of the brandy in the following.  Heat up some Apple Cider with some mulling spice and add Apple Jack Apple brandy. A little lemon juice to cut down the sweetness. It's a great adult beverage when sitting in your garage on Halloween handing out candy. 

Ruff, we had a guy in the neighborhood with candy for the kids and a beer for the parent with them. I made kids Trick or Treat till they went off to college, so I could accompany them.:D:D

Mike, have you been down to Lovingston to the Virginia distilling company? They make a single (barley) malt that is just great. Casked in wine barrels. Worth the trip. It’s on rt 29.

I had not heard of them. I could make a road trip. Do they make any bourbon?

Mike, that’s a nice stash.

 

 I recently tried Four Roses single barrel and enjoyed that, so it’s been added to the rotation.

No bourbon to my knowledge. Its just across the blue ridge mountains for me (I live on the west side in the valley). I hunt and train on woodcock in the area, so the breweries (more than can be named on 151) and distilleries make for a good stop before crossing the mountain on the way home.

While I’m not a real Bourbon drinker there are so many choices out there and so many are really pretty good that it’s not hard to come up with a good choice. For my taste buds Weller or Buffalo Trace are as good as any though if you feel a desire to splurge a little then the Woodford Reserve double oaked did actually stand out at the tasting when we toured the facility. I actually prefer Malt whiskeys to bourbon  but am really more of a beer guy than either . Hope I don’t get drummed out of Kentucky for admitting that.

I haul it back from Kentucky each spring by the case for a certain Evil Clowne who used to be a nuisance here on UJ.
