    Anyone try 2020 Willett Pot Still? Looking to get a preview before I take it to a dinner tomorrow with our neighbors, the Willetts.

    Thanks,

    Willets draws out a lot of opinions but I actually like it. Relatively smooth, inoffensive bourbon. Plus, it has a nice bottle. A nice gift for somebody.

    #9456 6 months ago

    Thanks for that DBLM. I will be SHARING it! Hahaha. Thought it would be appropriate. It was cheap enough (for me lately anyway) at $43.

    Another one bites the dust. A tasty 1992 CGF nip before the big ice comes out. Cheers fellas!!

    I didn't really think it was very bad it does finished sweeter than I would like but I think it's an interesting flavor profile but I will definitely drink the whole bottle. Not sure if I would buy another one or not I'll have to make that decision after this one is gone.

    #9459 6 months ago

    I'm moving on now. The one store owner did a barrel pick of Larceny that he is calling caramel spice cake and it is really really good and I swear it drinks like a triple digit and not a 94 good stuff for sure especially for $28 bucks

    I cannot stand to drink anything warm or room temp other than coffee. Everything else must have ice.

    Have you ever tried this? I’ve heard good things. Thinking about cracking it.

    I just picked up a bottle of the 2020 batch about 2 or 3 weeks ago but it's a present for my father-in-law so I haven't cracked. I did have a bottle of the 2019 that I really did not like it had a very metallic taste to it

    Yea I’ve heard mixed reviews but nothing terrible.

    On to the heavy hitters. This store pick is delicious.

    I'm not big on the Knob Creek but I am big on store pics as of late. I have probably picked up about 25 bottles how to store pics from this one spot I go to

    I’ve always liked it. Knob and Blantons got me into bourbon. My buddies store has some excellent RR single barrel picks that are out of this world. O,T,G to name a few. I’ve got some old label stashed as well.

    Nice the old label RR was very good I just killed the last bottle I had a few months ago of it.

    #9468 6 months ago

    This barrel is coming next week. The sample was excellent! Can’t wait!

    I absolutely did not like the 2019 of it. I dare say it was actually bad.

    But seriously I heard it’s really good.

    I like it also. I hate the bottle though, takes up too much shelf space!

    I’ve never had a bad WLW! You’ll def enjoy it. Try a sip neat then add a little water. I wouldn’t go full on ice with it.

    Little pumpkin carving going on here.

    2014 was the only “Hazmat” WLW batch. I have had a dram of that 2014 recently,it’s hot but the classic WLW flavor still comes through. I thought it was good.

    We had it during one of the samplings here and it scored towards the bottom amongst the group from what I recall. I would not buy it for myself.

    Only thought I have is that high proof is a serious danger to you. Send it to me immediately and I will dispose of it safely for you.

    Time for some Knob Creek 15 while I put on my Halloween makeup. Have not touched this since I opened it snd it has really opened up. Some oak, but not too oaky with vanilla. I can see why Jim Murray gave this an award this year. Really, really good.

    #9487 6 months ago

    On to the Knob Creek 25th Anniversary. 15 year just like the one before, but this is 122.5 proof compared to 100. Very, very smooth. Both are great.

    What are you putting in your ass pocket flasks tonight?

    I WILL be buying more of this...

    #9489 6 months ago

    FYI DBLM...you should look into one of these flasks. Bullet proof. Powder coated. All metal construction. Utterly disappears in a back pocket. But the pièce de résistance is that it has a wide mouth. Easy to fill....and empty! Cheap enough too.

    Cheers!

    You found Chamucos!

    Love your flask

    #9492 6 months ago

    This is my little drink for now....and also, you guys are lucky your pants are made with pockets that can actually fit a flask into them. Women’s pants pockets have evolved into pretty much the most useless things ever.

    Happy Halloween all!

    1 bottle is all they had. Now that I know where they stock it, I'll be back.

    #9494 6 months ago

    My first real post on this thread. Picked these up today. Larceny is new to me and tasting great! FR Single Barrel is a house staple at this point.

    Cheers!

    Hey OhKeePaw, that is why I thought you keep Hilton around to carry your bourbon?! Happy Halloween to both of you!

    #9497 6 months ago

    Time for a taste of my early birthday present from Hilton!! Very tasty—has a nice complex flavor profile!
