Blanton's Original Single Barrel
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed July 16, 2019It's very good. I do not think the notoriety around it is deserved, but for a readily available single barrel you can't go wrong. Unfortunately Japan (rightfully so) has a corner on all exports of it.
Stagg Jr Barrel Proof Bourbon Batch 1
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed July 16, 2019One of my all time favorites. Would probably pay into the ~$65 range for it. One of the darkest bourbons you'll see but once you taste it you'll understand why it's so good. Very abrasive on the pallet, but once opened is a whole new experience.50.0 USD per Bottle
Wild Turkey Rye 101
Rye — Kentucky, USAReviewed July 16, 2019Fantastic starter rye. Wild turkey does a great bourbon and also rye. For only having 2 mash bills they're really pushing what can be done with both41.0 USD per Bottle
18th Street Rye Whiskey
Rye — Indiana, USAReviewed July 16, 2019Very fig, cranberry taste. I assume it's ~2 years old. Fairly impressed for a brewery (and now distillery) to put out a decent product that isn't MGP, as far as I know. Honestly wouldn't mind buying a 2nd bottle.40.0 USD per Bottle
Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Rye (Fall 2018)
Rye — Kentucky, USAReviewed July 16, 2019All time favorite. I turn off all taste buds and just become absorbed in the moment. Had '17 and '18 and i will forever seek it out.
Basil Hayden's Two By Two Rye (Discontinued)
Rye — Kentucky, USAReviewed July 16, 2019A standard rye, someone said that if you let it sit for a while it opens up and I agree with that. At the price there's not many ryes that can rival it
Basil Hayden Dark Rye
Other Whiskey — Multiple CountriesReviewed July 16, 2019If you like rye and enjoy some funky things this is for you. The port wine added to it gives it a nice sweetness and covers up any abrasiveness. Very dark liquid because of this but easy drinking and a favorite go to
Basil Hayden 10 Year Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed July 16, 2019A lot more complex than their standard bourbon, tried blind and thought it tasted/ranked in the 50-60 dollar range
Basil Hayden's Caribbean Reserve Rye (Discontinued)
Rye — Multiple CountriesReviewed July 16, 2019Maple syrup-y goodnes.
Basil Hayden Bourbon
