I guess I never will be a...

    Willett Family Estate Single Barrel 17 Year Bourbon. . . .

    Okay, try saying that five times real fast. This exotic sounding, well aged, 138.9 proof bourbon didn't make Ol' Bloof's Top 25, and what's wrong with it? Well, let's go back a ways. This label was launched a few years ago, and I got an inside bottle of an early release from an . . ...

    Old Fitzgerald 1849 Bourbon. . . .

    Hah. Ha're U? Beautiful day, wasn't it? I hope it was where you are. Yes, here in Noo Yawk Citeh, it's still bourbon season at night. We still have nights in the 50's lately, low 50's some times, maybe even 40's last week. That's bourbon season. And after not having bourbon for months, I've...

    Old Forester Birthday Bourbon 2007. . . .

    This is the second year in a row that I decided to try this line, and after trying this one, I have decided to go back a bit in time when funds permit, and try at least one or two of past releases. Like last year's version, this is also 13 1/2 years old, but the difference is that this was...

    Parker's Heritage Collection Bourbon. . . .

    At a price of what seems to be an industry instruction all over the country of $79.99, which for me was a "walk-out price" of $86.69 with tax at Warehouse Wines last fall, it is indeed expensive. It is billed as "cask strength" and at 122.6 proof, that's strong enough for me. The label on the...

    Bulleit Bourbon?

    I had tried Bulleit Bourbon sveral years ago and, well, I just didn't like it. The rye was there, very there, but so was this bite. I just did not enjoy it. Now don't get me wrong, I am not complaining, especialy at that price. It just didn't do enough for me to get over the bite. It was...

    Four Roses Single Barrel Bourbon. . . .

    Or this thread could also be entitled, . . . A Sated Old Bourbon Drinker Strives To Maintain Objectivity My "Whiskey Sensei," whom I've spoken of at times, has always been helpful in that respect. I have to admit that at 51, I'm still the man in certain regions of my mind that I have...

    Johnny Drum 15 Year Old Bourbon. . . .

    New to the USA, long a favorite overseas, or so the legend goes. Well, this is sort of hilarious. I can't say I don't like this stuff. I can't say I'll never buy it again, although for R&D money, the $39.92 "walk-out price" I paid on my Binny's order was a bit high for me these days. There's...

    Peter Jake's Private Keep 10 Year Old Bourbon. . . .

    The 75th bourbon that I've tried in my career. Over the past month or so I've gone through nearly the entire bottle. A friend will get the rest. It's doubtful that any time I decide to try a 10 year old, 90 proof bourbon, that I'm going to have as pleasant an experience as I did with the Sam...

    Serious Bourbon Problem

    It looks like I may be in Louisville 19 - 22 June, for some trainning. My problem is I will have no one to drink Bourbon and smoke cigars with. Woe is me ! Can any one help ?

    Vintage 17 Year Old Bourbon. . . .

    There is also a 21 year old, currently in the Bloofingtonian tasting department, and LeNell's is listing a 23 year old, along with the 21. I purchased the 17 and 21 year old at Warehouse Wines and Spirits, 735 Broadway, in Manhattan, NYC. Now, does that mean a group of folks got together in...

    William Larue Weller Bourbon - Final Review . . .

    and new Top 25 list. From what I have been given to understand, this latest 121.9 barrel proof offering from the Van Winkle/Weller stable is actually the same whiskey as the Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 year old, Lot B, but instead of 90 proof, this is the pure form. And indeed, pure it is...

    Old Pogue Master's Select Bourbon. . . .

    This 91 proof offering from the Old Pogue Distillery does not have an age statement. It's nice stuff, but way too consistently sweet, no snap, no spice to break up the sweetness, and like another bourbon I had recently, has a distinct flavor of orange marmalade. Unfortunately, that's the...

    Bulleit bourbon

    Bloof - I know you've put this through a few taste tests and said it was a decent bourbon if you got a good price. Just wondering if you've had any new insights into this one? I've checked almost all the liquor stores around here and they carry more bourbons in plastic bottles than good stuff...
