    A buddy of mine was up there recently. Between him and all of us in the whiskey club, he brought back something like 60 bottles of whiskey. :rofl:

    Store picks would be a great thing to look for. Last year, my buddy brought me back a bottle of Old Tub. It was a small bottle (375ml?) and it is a bottle-in-bond bourbon that you can apparently only get at the Jim Beam facility or a couple of surrounding stores. It was a pretty damn tasty bourbon and only like $15 or so! Maybe take a peek at that?

    Can't wait to see what all you find. Happy hunting!

    Yesterday, I bought some Henry McKenna Sour Mash Bourbon to keep on hand for the mixers. I'll have to say, I think it's the best $13(.750) bourbon out there...at least of the bottom-shelfers that I've had.

    Thanks! I've been a bit addicted to Smith and Cross lately, I love the funk going on, as well as the depth of flavor. Delicious riff on a Negroni: 1.5oz Smith and Cross, 1oz Gran Classico (I much prefer this to Campari), 1oz Carpano Antica Formula vermouth.

    Take a look at the preview. The book has a great section on different types of base spirits, modifiers, liqueurs etc. and examples of bottles/brands that they recommend. Chapter on building your bar, of course cocktail recipes broken down by classics, gin shaken, gin stirred whiskey shaken, etc, then recipes on syrups, infusions etc.

    For the price, I think Cazul is excellent; smooth and flavorful. I also use it in margaritas (tequila, Cointreau, lime, agave).

    If you want something that's not half bad and under $10 then try Benchmark Old No8. by Buffalo Trace.
    It's "supposedly" from the left over barrels of Buffalo Trace and Blanton's. It is watered down to 80 proof. About $9.75 for 750ml in my neck of the woods.

    I will certainly give it a whirl! Thanks. I like the hidden, inexpensive gems.

    the apple just does nothing for me personally, but none of the 3 bottles I tried of theirs impressed me.

    KC single barrel picks have came a long way, most are coming out at 13+ years.

    I didn't care for my first pour, but loved the rest of the bottle. It's been my fastest kill

    Added two more to the stable. Picked up the McKenna today, and a buddy brought me the Elijah Craig this weekend (and we may have drank a few Saturday night lol)

    247CBF87-8341-40D7-A3EF-A8913591C32B.jpg

    The Elijah is good, but a bit harsh compared to some other bourbons I like. Just tasted the McKenna, a bit spicy with a burn that is the good kind. Me likey

    Pretty nice dent for "a few" :laugh:.

    Good pickups. That McKenna is really nice. Hard to find in some areas. It won some awards in 2017 and there was a big rush on it. I think it is a great Eagle Rare challenger.

    My buddy procured a bottle of Booker's 2015-01 for me that I picked up today. I now have a backup of my absolute favorite batch of Booker's up to this point. If you happen across a bottle of 'Big Man, Small Catch
    Batch', pick it up. It's fantastic. Hop to crack one this weekend!
