I too am vastly more experienced on the beer front, but Elijah Craig Barrel Proof is my favourite whiskey by a long shot. In fact I don't actually feel the compulsion to buy any other whiskeys, although I did buy my brother a Bookers for Christmas and am looking forward to comparing them. For reference Maker's Mark Case Strength is the same price in the UK and nowhere near as good IMO.Just out of curiosity what would you call a good scotch/bourbon, and at what price range that would generally start? Being much more advanced in my beer and wine exploration I can definitely tell there's a point of diminishing returns, that the more dollars you spend the less difference it makes on average the further you go- at least in my own experience.
Dickel too sweet/not enough bite?
Sounds like we are doing the same thing! I've moved any bottle with less then 1/4 left to the front of the cabinet to slowly but surely free up space. Of course, that means the space will need to be filled, but that's the fun part.That's a solid list. I echo the comments generally, except you're missing "baby" (7yr) Sazarac (yes, a rye ... but still).
I've been having fun polishing off some bottles that are taking up cabinet space. Today was a Green Spot (Irish). Two days ago was an original release Compass Box Spice Tree. Before that was a 17YO Party Store pick John Bowman (my oh my), etc.
As an aside, I just poured the last of an older Aberlour a'Bunadh last night. If memory serves, it was batch 50 from about 2014 I think? Now that was a damn fine whisky.Yeah, I think I save some of the last of bottles for hypothetical side by side comparisons -- I like the concept but it's also good to enjoy what you have in the moment. Plus some older spirits do oxidize once opened (I spray my high end with WinePreserve but not the other stuff).
