WhistlePig 6 Year PiggyBack Rye Legends Series: Big Papi
Rye — (Bottled In) Vermont, CanadaReviewed October 27, 2022Maybe biased here as a native Bostonian but I enjoyed this. Preferred the sharpness in an Old Fashioned vs. straight, but getting mostly spice, caramel, and hints of vanilla. There’s a subtle complexity to this one if you give it the time of day. Gimmicky for sure, but I enjoyed it.49.99 USD per Bottle
Weller Antique 107 Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed October 27, 2022I think it’s a great example of balanced wheated bourbon. Caramel, biscuit, corn. Fairly sharp booze, and one of the better offerings in the Weller portfolio IMO.

Eagle Rare 17 Year Bourbon (Fall 2020)
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed October 27, 2022Sweeter, more vanilla-forward on nose vs. palate. Big contrast, with slight char, nuttiness, & mildly bitter oak that softens on the finish. Last tasted 07/2022, side-by-side w/ WLW (2017).
William Larue Weller Bourbon (Fall 2017)
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed October 27, 2022Still my favorite BTAC. Vanilla bomb; rich, sweet nose. Great tobacco notes, dark fruit w/ time in glass. Perfect marriage of toasted marshmallow & tobacco. Last tasted 07/2022, side-by-side w/ ER17 (2020).
