[quote]Check out when that Sazerac was put in the barrel. [/quote] That's actually the true distilled date. It's been in stainless steel vats for years. The age stated is the minimum anyway. The Eagle Rare 17 this year is actually 19 years old....

[quote]BTW - I strongly prefer the 20 to the 23. [/quote] This. The 23 is good, but I'll take the 15 or 20 over it any day especially for the price (though the 20 is my favorite). I just traded a 23 and 10 to get another 15 and 20. :cool:...

[quote]Any recommendations on what to try? [/quote] Oldest scotch I've had was Balvenie 25 year and it was damn good. I've heard the Macallan 30 and Balvenie 30 are both excellent and not terribly hard to find. I think Lock and Key may be one of the places that has really old, really rare stuff...

[quote]If you can get a hold of a bottle what is a good price for 20/23 year? [/quote] Do you know a store owner or good connection that can get it for retail? If so, 20 is just under $200 and 23 is probably $250ish. If not and you're trying to get someone to sell you one out of their collection,...

In other news, I'm not sure if anyone else has opened a Midwinter Night's Dram, but that stuff was excellent. It is very balanced and has some good savory apple and plum notes with some good rich grape as well on the nose. The palate was equally impressive with fruit forward then get some good allsp...

[quote]Opened mine last night. Just tasted like stronger Makers. Not much difference at all from regular Makers other than a little more bite.[/quote] Yeah, it's disappointing at the price point. Maybe we just had too high of expectations, but I had read some pretty good reviews. My buddy was giv...

[quote]It's good but I dunno if $40/375mL good...[/quote] I had it last night for the first time. One of our buddies brought some back from KY. We were pretty disappointed in it. It's not very complex and basically just tasted like stronger Maker's Mark. I definitely prefer Makers 46 to it. Defin...

[quote]Teach me [/quote] Starts with establishing relationships with store managers and owners. Go in and talk bourbon with them and start buying some bottles of regular stuff. Continue doing this and when you hear of new releases, talk about those with them (sometimes they're not aware of the ...

[quote]Is that the tosted micters? Have you tried it yet or read anything about it? [/quote] It is the toasted michters. It's great stuff. Way more complex and better than any of their other entry stuff. One of the best parts is that it was the same price as most of their other bourbons. Was $38...
