    The 10 Star is much better. 90 proof as the regular AA is only 80 proof and to me tastes watered down.
    The 10 Star is easily available here but mainly in the 1750 ml size and in a plastic bottle. A screw top lid I might deal with but a Bourbon in a plastic bottle?
    Nope, ain't gonna happen. So I'll buy the 750 ml in glass. I'm gonna keep a couple of empty 750 ml bottles and if it comes down to buy the plastic bottle or nothing. I'll pour it in to them. It would save me some money anyways. Only $26 half gallon. :yay:

    I think even the regular AA is fantastic! I get it locally for $10 bucks and it’s always in stock. I’ve been wanting to do an experiment with aging AA in one of those tapped gallon sized oak barrels you can get online.

    You're much more refined than I. Plastic handle over here all the way, baby! :rofl:

    It used to be Ancient Ancient Age 10 Year. Then they ran out of whiskey, so they made it 3 year and changed the name to Ancient Ancient Age 10 Star instead.

    Sitting in the airport waiting for my flight and you have me thirsty, now. :laugh:

    I wasn't trying to put down the regular AA it is good. But the 10 Star just takes it up a notch. If the 10 star were to disappear then regular AA would probably be my next go to for a daily.

    I've been on the Bourbon wagon now for about a year and I've tried just about everything locally available. Just trying to settle in with a few favorites. And no matter what I do I keep coming back to Buffalo Trace products. Man it seems like they got their act together taste wise. Just wish some of their offerings were not so damn hard to find.

    Ditto! I'm exactly the same. Although my daily drinker is Benchmark #8...also a lower offering from BT. I get it for $10 for a liter.

    You know they have these remarkable places in airports where they give you a glass of bourbon or Scotch in exchange for money (a freakin lot in these places) and you can drink it at 8a.m. with no judgement from others. They call them bars. Wonderful places.

    :rofl:

    Man, if you only knew how my last 36 hours have gone.

    It goes MUCH further than this, but after a missed connection (I could write an entire thread on the ineptitude of Chicago O'Hare airport), my wife caught the red eye with my oldest daughter last night. The fact that I am staying back and taking care of my 3 year old daughter is the only thing keeping me from being scraped off a bar stool, having a tag stuck to a belly full of bourbon, and being shipped home with the other checked luggage.

    O'hare sucks. Of the 4 times I've been stranded because of flights 3 of them were there.

    I resemble that remark. Been through O'hare once, and got stranded for 5 hours because of a canceled flight. And also got rerouted with an extra 2 hours of flight time after a 90 minute delay on the tarmac because of that fire they had back in 2014. So they even suck indirectly when they're not open :laugh:

    You know after I typed that I was thinking about and I'm pretty sure the 4th time was because of them. Our flight got diverted to somewhere else in air because they closed for something.

    Lol, I too know the misery that is O'Hare. Only been there twice but both times had delay issues (one inbound and had to fly around for awhile and one outbound). I thought it would be a good opportunity to try authentic Chicago deep dish pizza but the place at the airport was the worst pizza I've ever had. Nasty.

    I think the only airport that is worse is Newark in New Jersey.

    I would prefer a layover in any one of Dante's 7 circles of hell than have to spend one more godforsaken moment in that airport.

    We had just shy of 4 hours between flights and O'Hare couldn't quite pull it off.

    We were flying back from Seattle and were supposed to fly over airspace controlled by O'hare, but because of the fire in their control/radar tower everything was being rerouted, so we sat on the tarmac in Seattle for 90 minutes, took an extra-long loop through the South to avoid Chicago's airspace, and then missed our connection in Philly by 20 minutes and ended up with a 3 hour layover until they stuffed us into the next flight to Portland.


    Edit- Because of this guy:

    I picked this up today, it was hiding behind the counter, passing on the Blanton's and Hibiki as I'm low on rye options at the moment. This is the 2019 single barrel/barrel strength release and is supposed to be very good (and not easily found).

    Anyone have experiences with their barrel strength rye (past version or present)?

    No experience, but curious your thoughts. I just won a raffle for some. It's a shop in Wisconsin, so I'm needing my cousin to go pick it up. I'll take delivery in June.

    I really like Michter's stuff and expect this to deliver nothing short of excellence!

    I hate Ohare. I have driven home in a rental car or been delayed several hours more than often than I have arrived on schedule from there. Last time I ended up giving three ladies a ride (that I had just met waiting the flight when we found out it was cancelled and would be three days before we could be rescheduled). Also made me miss my anniversary. My wife is still fails to see the humor.

    You missed your anniversary and spent it with three other women and your wife doesn't see the humor?


    Strange woman...
