    Quoted from Daditude:

    This is a Rye, not a bourbon (so I am technically cheating). It's still good though.

    You are living on the edge man. You are toe-ing the politics line there!

    #11502 14 days ago

    This one slightly growing on me for the price

    Larceny has been my recent favorite for the past month or so. Went through a few bottled in bond bourbons, but the Larceny won out. (Also keep some Bulliet Rye around to clean the palette between bourbons...)

    Tasting notes:

    Nose: buttery richness with light orange and peach. Light baking spices and nutmeg. Somewhat subdued.

    Palate: caramel and cider with an interesting lemongrass twist that lingers. There is a buttered popcorn undertone present, but it balances out well and doesn't overpower the other flavors. Very rich mouthfeel.

    Finish: it has a medium finish with a bit of honey and cider.

    Final thoughts: for the price, it certainly stands the test. This could easily be an everyday drinker. I personally enjoy a higher proof than what is offered (92), sweeter bourbons (I would characterize it as more "balanced"), and bourbons with a longer finish. I am clearly nit-picking, as all my favorites would certainly fetch a much higher price. All in all, however, it is worth trying and definitely offers plenty of value for any home bar.

    Have you tried the Larceny Barrel Proof?

    #11507 14 days ago

    Somewhere in these ingredients lies the perfect Old Fashioned recipe.
    I’ll just have to continue with the experiments.

    Gentleman,

    Long day at work so an old fashioned was in order after reading your posts. I appear to be out of orange bitters so substituted Cherry and it turned out nice.

    Thanks for the nudge.

    I’m sure that would be tasty too

    You’re right it’s pretty tasty and the key to the mix are the ratios you list

    If I had something called like zucchini bitters, I’m sure it would work

    Does a ratio matter?
    I just add a little of each and extra bourbon.

    If they figured out frozen Pequod’s I’ll get it myself on Goldbelly, such a headache to pick it up.

    I recommend brown sugar. I picked up some brown sugar cubes for the Old Fashioned and it’s pretty tasty.

    I like the Demerara Sugar Cubes

    I am usually reluctant on buying products that appear to be nothing more then a big name slapping their name on a product but I really like the cherries that Blanton's sells. Don't be taken back by the higher price as the jar is larger then most others that you buy. Shipping them is the only drawback.

    Quoted from Green-Machine:

    Doesn't it though.

    #11520 13 days ago

    My formula:

    Start with a mushed Maraschino Cherry in a nice glass. Add a Giant ice cube or ice ball, 2 oz. of your favorite Bourbon, 1/2 oz. of Simple Syrup, (or two sugar cubes or 1/2 oz. of Vermouth) three dashes of aromatic Bitters and two dashes of Angostura Orange Bitters. Add a whole Maraschino Cherry and, if you want, a slice of orange peel. I don't bother with the Luxardo Cherries these days.

    Stir and enjoy. If you go the vermouth route, you've just made a Manhattan w/Bitters.

    Total Wine in Nevada and Arizona carry them. Not sure if they are in California yet. They may not bother with the environment there.

    You know the answer. We turned out the lights, put the chairs on the tables, rinsed out the glasses, and called a cab for the stragglers.

    The core group of people that made this thread fun and one of the most dynamic and inclusive groups moved the party to another bar.

    #11526 13 days ago

    For a proper Old Fashioned, one must come from WI. No discussion, that is the facts end of discussion!

    This is a bourbon thread not a "what can I put in my Whiskey to make it taste like something else" thread.

    Back on topic, unless we're talking colored dogs!

    Cool! A bourbon thread.... Hey.

    #11529 12 days ago

    You see...
    I’m crazy about Bourbon & cigars.
    So this morning I remembered I had this goofy sun dome deep in storage in my attic and I’ve been having that cabin fever sneaking up on me, so I set the f’n thing up in the RAIN just to smoke and have a few too many drams outside.
    I feel reborn.
    Any suggestions on bourbon/cigar combinations?

    It is good, not much like regular JD. The barrel mine came from was a good one and it leaves a banana taste at the end. I would prefer a little more burn so those who don't like smoke or burn here is a sweet 130+ proof for you.

    Cool I just thought it was so different than the others I have tried recently and posted in the thread

    I have tried so many lately with the pandemic. Nothing else to do, some hit home and some not so much. This one just surprised me and the Russels Reserve red label store pick too which is completely different

    #11544 11 days ago

    That red label store pick is great. Mine was picked by some guys from Orlando and they did a good job.

    Johnny drum in glass maybe to end the night or not

    In keeping with the great tradition of this thread i present 1 ex whistling pig and 1 .. ummm ex knob
    I really enjoyed the rye i must say and although i wouldn't buy a rye bourbon on a regular basis it was definitely nice for a change!

    #11548 11 days ago

    Haven’t posted on this thread yet but have a question for all you bourbon sommeliers.

    I’ve recently become “obsessed” with making Manhattans and wonder if you guys have any recommendations for the best bourbon to use to make a mean Manhattan that won’t break the bank.

    #11549 11 days ago

    If by mean you are trying to say high proof and you seek inexpensive you can't go wrong with Wild Turkey 101 right around $20 and Costco's bourbon is 103 and mixes really well for $30.

    I do love me some wild turkey, but wasn't concerned about the proof so much as a nice bourbon that mixes well without overpowering.
    Again I am new to making manhattans so still in the “discovery” phase of making them appropriately.
    I should also note that I’m using Carpano Antica Formula vermouth, Angostura aromatic bitters and some Wiggle pomander Orange bitters.
