    I believe the Draegers in San Mateo has a bottle, along with the rest of the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection.

    Thanks Kyoung05. They had a bottle and I picked it up. The place was like the wine museum in the middle of a grocery store.

    Anyway, I gave it a try and really enjoyed it.

    Yay on the Pappy 20. Started out with Booker's. Given the cost (around $35), still one of my favorites.

    Edit: checked to find that Booker's has gone up, sometimes substantially since I stocked up from Costco. Although $42 here in MN is not bad.

    PvW 20 - not nearly as hot as Booker's, but still very full-bodied. If you can find it for $110-$120, snap it up.

    A HUGE YAY. Still my favorite bourbon atm. Today is my day off, so I decide to crack open my 2010 WLW, wow it was really good.

    Blanton's, don't waste your money on BH.

    roflz I wasn't saying one or the other, I was saying that those are the two I'd order when it comes to Bourbon.

    Blanton's is, by far, my favorite bourbon though.


    Gentleman Jack's also fun.

    this. For under $30, I rather get a bottle ER 10, Evan William single barrel, Elmer T. Lee, and Elijah Craig.

    I like the flower on fire taste to Basil; it has its charm.

    The best way I can describe Gentleman is green. It's a very earthy and refreshing bourbon.

    $35 for Bookers? Goddamn....what a steal!

    Sorry, a little clarification. That was several years ago when I stocked up at that price. Considering it's been that long, the current sale price of $42 here in the TC is pretty good.

    Lots of love for Bookers on this end. I'd like to find it for $35, too!

    Jack is Bourbon with an extra dance move.

    Jack is a Tennessee Whisky, which isn't classified as a bourbon due to an extra step in processing and the usage of two percent more than the regulated limit of Corn. However, a Tennessee Whisky is known as a straight bourbon by NAFTA [​IMG]

    Be that as it may, I don't think it's inappropriate to show up in a Bourbon thread, as it's often classified as a bourbon in restaurants and bars despite its, as I said, extra dance move and 2% past the regulated limit usage of Corn. Hence, officer.

    Then again, who am I to know really? I called Sisters of Mercy and Bauhaus goth rock and slush sludge once so I obviously don't know what I'm talking about.

    But it is not bourbon as defined under Title 27 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Chapter 1, Part 5, Section 5.22.
