My parents neighbor in Wisconsin does a Bourbon tasting to support a cancer charity. My brother is a bigger bourbon drinker than I and this was a bucket list tasting for the both of us.

$99+ a 2oz pour of 23 at any high end bar in Chicago if you really need it lol.

Yea, im not paying 100 bucks for a 2 ounce shot of bourbon.... As much of a bourbon guy as i am, im still a cheap SOB over everything else. lol

Just had to make a Buffalo Trace old fashioned, having stumbled upon this thread again earlier... you cant talk about bourbon and not drink some.

Binny’s pick small batch, nice. I’m running out if mine but I picked up a standard Buffalo Trace at Jewel a few weeks ago which is a score in itself.

I’m drinking $10 old fashioneds at Beacon Tap. Delicious but I really need to get home before I go poor…

I just opened a bottle of 1792 small batch. Nothing fancy. But also came across this at target.

Jewel, target, Tony's, all typically will have BT in stock. And if they don't, it's in stock within a week.

I’ve seen it at Walmart, haven’t looked at Target or Tony’s. I grabbed the last bottle at Jewel. Back in 2019 every Binny’s had their small batch picks by the pallet load. I used to go to Algonquin and Crystal Lake once they opened and there was no shortage. Fucking Joe Rogan.

I know tequila. Don't know whiskey. I am buying a bottle for a friend who does know whiskey. I have bought him Macallan 12 before and he likes that. This year I am thinking of getting him a Talisker 10. Similar price and the reviews I have watched almost unanimously have the reviewers loving the whiskey. You guys familiar with it? 45.8 ABV. Peppery. Bit of peat. Letting it breathe or adding a small amount of water expands the nose and flavor. 90 rating for around $75.

Never even seen that one.

Expensive does not always equal good, but everyone's taste is different.

I saw that characters in one of the Bond movies were drinking it not that that matters. The 18 is supposed to be even better but it's double the cost. The 25 and 30 are through the roof price wise.

Never had Talisker. In the same price range is Redbreast 12. It’s a pot still Irish whiskey. If you want to stick to scotch Balvenie 12 is similar to Macallan.

Keep coming back to this. Solid rocks bourbon.View attachment 109421
This is very solid bourbon . I was at this distillery in Bardstown KY last July. Loved everything about their process and majority of their bourbon. The week we were there the Fusion 5 was just released, and was able to get a sample of the White dog. You should try the discovery series, its a red label.
