Recently started aging my own in a 2 liter barrel. This first round I am just using 1.5L of Weller 12 and nothing else. My plan is ~3 months. I'll taste every 30 days. If this goes well I'll get a little more experimental. I have read some interesting articles on adding 1/4 cup of molasses to the barrel while aging.

Recently started making Old Fashioned's here at home - using what I have left of regular Bulleit bourbon right now. Any recommendations for good liquor to use making an Old Fashioned, or really just whatever bourbon or whiskey you prefer?

Duh, yes. Old Forester.

I picked up a Blantons single barrel as a gift for my brother. Not sure if it will make it to Christmas.

haven't found anything special lately, other than various batches of Barrell Bourbon and some ECBP. Store near me starting carrying the standard Sazerac Rye again which was nice to see. Hoping to score a bottle of George T. Stagg this year since I think I read there are about 10k bottles this year. Haven't gotten one since 2013.

Just got a bottle of the Old Forester 1920 Prohibition after hearing about it for a while and have to say it's pretty solid. Definitely holds up to the hype. I'm not fancy enough to understand just how "nuanced" the flavor is, but I like it. Would recommend.

I'd give you $20 to buy the last Stagg and mail it to me and cover all out of pocket costs.

anyone here predominately a rye fan? I've drank most of the ones I can readily get at the liquor store and tend to stick to High West Double Rye but I haven't gotten to try the Booker's Rye. Booker's is probably the best bourbon I've ever had. Anything I'm missing that's obtainable? I'm more of a beer and (dry) wine guy so definitely not an expert in spirits at all.

There’s an Old Forester Birthday Burbon at a store in DC. $300 though.

Also had Stagg Jr, Sazerac Rye, some other good stuff.

Been dabbling in more bourbon and whiskeys from craft distillers.

Latest couple of purchases include Fiddler Bourbon from ASW in Atlanta and Sassy Rye from Copper Fox in Williamsburg. Haven't actually tried Fiddler yet but the Sassy Rye was impressive and different.

I cannot remember which Rye I got from Copper Fox, but it was one of their first batches I think, and it was _horrible_. Maybe they have gotten better.

The first Stagg Jr I got was wretched. I let it breath for a couple of weeks and it changed to being actually decent. The last bottle I got tasted decent on day one. There's not a lot of consistency with some of the smaller batch bourbons.

saw a birthday bourbon here in atlanta, asked the owner's wife how much and she laughed and said "oh it's way overpriced you don't want that. it's $340." i complimented her on her sales pitch.

^^^what was your process of letting it breathe? I have to take my Stagg Jr. with water to open it up, otherwise it's like turpentine.

I simply decanted into a wide bottle and let it get exposure to air. It's a barrel proof bourbon, so the proof is so high that it will kill your tastebuds if you don't open it up a little.

^hell i don't think i even get a nice try email. I just assume I lose out.

^ I work in Rock Hill and live in Southpark and I can honestly say that I'd almost rather take my chances with NC vs dealing with these SC stores. Southern Spirits is so snooty about everything and I like O'Darby's for regular stuff but I saw a bottle of Weller 107 in their case a while back for $99. That's just ridiculous. I'll admit I bought the Elmer T Lee I saw for $70 but it's still a crock of shit.

I hear that a lot about Southern Spirits but they've never been that way with me. I used to go fairly frequently but it's been a year or more at this point. They'll probably just look at me as a rare chaser at this point.
