    You need to find it.

    You are in Nashville, if you ever make it to the great city of Gatlinburg to partake in the marginal skiing or various Nascar themed go-kart races, there is a package store near there I can direct you to that usually has a bottle or two. It's a very good bourbon, I would probably put it on par with the 20 year old, although the 20 gets the slight edge in my mind as it tends to have a little more of what I look for in a bourbon. Other than Eagle Rare 17 year old, nothing else even comes close to this in the sub $80 niche.


    Many thanks. I actually might be cabin bound in February. I'd prefer to not have to mingle with the tourists, but I will for pappys sake. What's the name of the establishment?

    I think it's Smoky Mountain Wine and Spirits, on Chapman Highway between Gatlinburg and Knoxville. Worth the drive though, they have some great stuff.

    Not and Irish whisky afficianado by any stretch, but I do love the Red Breast! I know it's a little apples to oranges, w/ it being pot distilled, but I dig much more than regular J, BM or Powers. Also, can't stop w/ the damn Pegu Clubs. Having 3 a night since my initiation!

    [​IMG] I find it has fewer errant flavors than Grey Goose.

    This tastes quite seasonal, a true Festivus treat


    If you have any more, I like this a lot more after a year in bottle. Stash a couple for next holiday season. The spices mellow and the taste is much more balanced.

    I got a 6er and only had the one, I'll probably save a couple since you say it gets better, or go back and see if they have any more 6s [​IMG] EDIT: Tonight's drink [​IMG]

    How was that? Allagash usually puts out quality product.

    Actually quite good. I am an Allagash fan but I had dimished hopes for it because it had only a decent rating on beeradvocate, but I was pleasently surprised. I would reccomend this one actually, but not as an everyday drinker

    I finally bought a bottle of Laphroaig Quarter Cask. Exploring its peatiness, this bottle is not going to last very long. Had some Dogfish Indian Brown earlier, the beer that introduced me to microbrews. Too bad I don't have some Glenrothes, the whisky that introduced me to single malt scotch [​IMG] that would make for a good nostalgia night.
