    it's pretty good with lemonade. Or with some soda. Wasn't bad over ice either.

    But I can find this vs the Crown royal.

    So, picked this up today.

    20240402_162459.jpg

    We need to talk about it.

    For those of you not familiar, Discovery is BBC's "go find shit on the sourcing market and blend it tasty" series. They make their own stuff too, but this has been a much more well known line for them.

    Disco 11 has revived the buzz because of this:

    20240402_162508.jpg

    There are two majors which sell barrels and use a 75/13/12 mashbill: Wild Turkey and Jim Beam. The major excitement is that, at 118 proof, it sure looks right by mashbill and proof to be mostly 13 year old whiskey from Turkey, which uses a barrel entry proof of 115. Beam typically goes in at 125.

    78/13/9 is a known Beam mashbill as well.

    Turkey almost never sells barrels to NDPs and doesn't say much about it when they do. And at this age...rare.

    Either way, there's not really a wrong answer - Knob Creek 12y Cask Strength was raved about, I personally have several 14 y/o 120 proof KC store picks which are *excellent*, and any Turkey over 10 years of age at any proof is reliably a treat.

    Letcha know my thoughts shortly.

    Also this BBC Discovery 11 is *totally* sourced Turkey. I'd know that palate anywhere.

    I may well go back an get another.

    I held that bottle the other evening and didn’t know what to think about it. Thanks for the info on it, I’ll have to snag it.

    The Discovery 11 is very good. I did a blind with RR13 and disco 11, I did like RR13 more but not by much. The 11 is definitely sourced Turkey

    RR13 is the most underperforming allocated bourbon on earth.

    I went into their store while in Louisville and they were very honest about sourcing their barrels but wouldn't say from who. With a wink, he said google is your friend as they show the mash bill. The day I was in there was the day of their first major release, selling over 100 bottles in a few hours.

    doesn't tickle my fancy either.
    Blinded it once with stagg, once with other Russell's juice. RR13 was bottom for both

    I have found it to be excellent both times I've had, but the same goes for RR SiBs, which at times have been better and can be walked home for MSRP in the $60s any day of the week.

    So I don't really pursue it. If I trip on it at a good price one day, great, but if not...meh.

    I’ve had a few different RR SiB, they’ve all been great. I’ve had pours from two different RR13 batches, they were both the same. Boring and unremarkable. Huge disappointment. I immediately traded my bottle away.

    Some good scores for the wife and I out of town today.

    Got to try the single oak project last night, it was delicious. The OF was not.

    Any of the regulars in here in the Denver area want these bottles? Moving and I don't want to take these with me, not my cup of tea. Free. IMG_0923.jpg

    Yup lol. That Rowan's Creek is pretty similar to the Willett as well.
