The Lounge>Any Bourbon drinkers out there?
The Poz 01:04 PM 06-19-2008
I've heard some good things about Buffalo Trace Bourbon.
http://www.buffalotrace.com/

Can't get it up here north of the border but, through a wine distributer I am able to order a case. Would like to hear from someone who knows their stuff and has tried it before I order.

Thanks

https://flaviar.com/devils-river-whi...-notes-reviews

Think ones worth $15-20 buck more than the other?

To me. Devil's a great whiskey... if not trying to impress someone, wouldn't buy it at retail price point.
I haven't seen Devil's River in my neck of the woods. Based upon what you've posted, I will definitely pick up a bottle if I do see it.

As far as worth, that's really up to the consumer. In my neck of the woods, Wild Turkey 101 and Jim Beam and other bourbon is usually about $27-30 a bottle. Buffalo Trace is usually about $35, sometimes less on sale. Knob Creek little less, maybe $31-33. Shipping and taxes play a big part in the price so until I see it up here, I have no idea what the price is. Wouldn't surprise me to see it around $30 a bottle generally but until I taste it, I have no idea which I prefer. And if I do prefer the Woodinville, do I prefer it at the cost? No idea.

I just bought the bottle of Woodinville and really liked it. Haven't seen it too many places so I just figured I would let people know what I thought about it so that if someone on this board sees it they can say, "I've heard about that and I know one guy likes it. Maybe I'll give it a try." That's all.

They can keep it at the prices. I see on line for the US ($195)

IMHO It's not selling overseas so there selling it here:-)
In the end of Sept the AU$$ was down so it's less than $120US retail in Au.
Shipping from Au is impossible, anyone traveling?

Has anyone ever had Mitchers? The guys at the liquor store highly recommended it. Also saw they had Makers 101 curious how that is as well.

cooper barrett 10:12 PM 10-26-2020
Had the Makers, It's my style but when I had it, I thought it was overpriced. The price looks better but still $40

I wanna try this: about 2X $$$$$$




If Mitcher's is so good why doesn't it ever have a hole when I go to shop

Been on the hunt for a bottle of MidWinters Night Dram but have struck out. Picked up these two as a consolation. The Double Rye! is a limited release that was finished 14 months in a Syrah barrel. Reminds me of the Yippee Ki Yay that was discontinued.

I just picked up a bottle of that for Turkey Sacrifice Day. It's . . . interesting. The finish is unlike anything I've tried before. Still making up my mind if i really like it. But right now, different is good.

For somebody who doesn’t like it straight, what would a good cocktail be? I enjoy sours, but I feel like that’s a disgraceful thing to do to a nice bourbon.

Manhattan.


Think this is a kind of basic recipe.

There's some really good modified ones out there.

I'll put it this way: I like my whiskey straight and around body temp (don't ask me how I do that part), maybe every once a decade I like it on ice. But I like Manhattans okay.

Old Fashioned



1 scant teaspoon simple syrup
2 dashes Angostura Bitters, plus more to taste
1 half dollar–sized slice orange peel, including pith
2 ounces good-quality rye or bourbon
1 maraschino cherry
PREPARATION
In old-fashioned glass, combine simple syrup and bitters.
Fill glass halfway with ice, then stir about a dozen times.
Add enough ice to fill glass.
Squeeze orange peel over glass to extract oils, add peel to glass, and add whiskey.
Stir just until drink is cold and alcoholic bite has softened, about a dozen times.
Garnish with cherry, swizzle stick, and straw.

I love that someone who averages less than 16 posts a year used one to give me an antifreeze recipe. Truly a CP classic! :-)

I have never mixed or drunk an Old Fashioned, but something tells me this chick hasn’t either.
