    It's good I've had it before. Best rye for the price for sure.

    The James E Pepper 1776 Rye is at least as good for the price.

    Haven't had that one, I'll have to pick up a bottle. The FIL got two Whistle Pigs I'm looking forward to tasting as well.

    I've had a bottle in the back of cabinet for two years probably, never opened. I think it's the 6th batch? The 132.5. I've read a lot of reviews that say the batches really vary, but the 6th is one of the better ones.

    I haven’t had it in a while, and now the town I’m in doesn’t carry buffalo trace stuff. But when I could buy it it was always in my cabinet. Delicious.

    Didn't mean it that way. It's not bad stuff but its just wild turkey. Also weird that it claims to be a Texas whiskey but its made in Tennessee and bottled in California.

    There's a million rectifiers out there. Half the whiskey you see on a liquor store shelf wasn't distilled by whoever bottled and labeled it. Some of them are really good at further aging and blending (High West made it's name off of being masters at this), and some of them just dump shit they buy in a bottle and label it as something else. Transparency is nice, but a lot of them try to obscure it (Michter's caught a ton of shit for this in the beginning, but they're better about it now, Templeton, Bulleit, etc.). Whistle Pig and High West, who are both distilling now, have always been upfront about where and how they source.

    I can’t say I disagree. I checked out One World for the first time. Decent enough beer, but they’ve got a cool, little spot.

    Have you tried Wicked Weed? Little up and coming microbrewery that I think is going to do big things.

    Mother of Wampress gave me a bomber of Olde Hickory Event Horizon and I snagged a collaboration between Birds Fly South and Burial. Should be a good beer weekend.

    I’ve been trying to go to birds fly south for some time now and can just never make it. I’m so displeased with myself. Let me know how the collab is.

    I’ve mentioned it before but the last 2 times I’ve been to Burial the beers have been average at absolute best and at worst down right terrible. Hell, none out of a group of 3 could stomach a beer we got last time we were there and tossed it out. Beyond that, every time I’ve been there the people working the bar have been assholes and no help at all.

    I know it's not really comparable to these microbreweries but I visited Sierra Nevada for the first time a few weeks ago and that place is a damn campus, I couldn't believe how big it was.

    All American Liquor in Mauldin is unloading some select bourbon for cost. Tonight I picked up Bulleit 10yr, Russell's Reserve SB, Eagle Rare, and Blade and Bow.

    The Bourbon Cartel guys did a barrel pick at Bell Meade last September-ish, and one of our CBWS guys got to tag along. They all zeroed in on a particular Madeira cask-finished barrel, and the BC guys gave us access to a small number of bottles once the bottling was done. Just picked this up on Friday, haven't cracked it yet but errbody who's tried it says it's delicious. Trying to get rid of this headcold so I can actually enjoy it.

    Is Bell Meade worth checking out? I have to go up that way in May for a graduation and will need some ideas on what to do.

    Honestly, I don't know. The handful of times I've seen them at bourbon events, I wasn't blown away by anything I tried. Without looking it up, I assume they're sourcing, probably from MGP, and without looking, it also wouldn't be surprising if they're setting up a distilling operation like every other label these days. It sounds like some of their finished products (secondary casks, etc.) are hits, like this one--will report back once I try it. And I guess there's some reason the Bourbon Cartel guys went to Belle Meade in the first place. Go check them out.

    Edit: Nelson's Greenbrier Distillery makes the Belle Meade line, so I guess it's their own juice.

    I've heard the winery is worth checking out, so I'll add the bourbon and just do both.

    Thanks, dude

    Go to The Southern Growl in Greer if you even remotely like beer. 60 taps of delicious craft beer from all over. Rotates about 10-15 new beers in per week.
