I got lucky today. Went to watch a game this afternoon at a pub and ended up next to some old dude, it was the only spot left. I was drinking Bulliet Rye, he was drinking Bulliet Bourbon. Got to talking about college football and I gave him my take on how anew other games would turn out. He started buying the expensive stuff for the both of us! We tried the following, and he must have spent $200 at least. Here's what we drank (I took notes to post here).....

1) Mastersons 12 Year Old Wheat
Made from glacial water, aged in white oak casks, distilled in copper pots.
Pretty good and smooth finish, but way overpriced in my opinion. $27/double.

2) Dry Fly Bourbon
Made in Washington, 101 proof.
Reminded me of a smoother Knob Creek. I might buy this one. $23/double.

3) Bookers Bourbon
The only bourbon bottled straight from the barrel. Uncut and unfiltered, 126 proof.
Haven't had this one in a while. Liked it before and I liked it this time. VERY strong, deep flavor, and would make for excellent strong mixed drinks. $23/double.

4) Angel's Envy Bourbon
Finished in Port barrels.
Pretty good. Light and smooth. $21/double

Great!

You know how much I like reviews.
Next time you get on this coast we are going to have to do some drinking.
Just don't make me watch feetsball.

2 weeks ago MacAbre and tried 4 Roses in three incarnations.
All three were good, the small batch was excellent, the single barrel is good a bit stingy perhaps but smooth and tasty.
The base version was nice if a bit soft for me.

We were also drinking Sazerac and Rittenhouse two of my favorites.

They had the 4 Roses selection there but we didn't try it. Cool looking bottles.....
If you don't want to watch football I'll come in the springtime.

Although some of the hard apple ciders are pretty damn good.

Put a bit of Bacardi Superior in with some Sunny D, was pretty darn good. I would absolutely recommend the Rummy D.

Makers Mark NASA new product on shelves now, Makers Mark Cask Strength.
Proof: 108-114
More robust flavors of vanilla and smoke, bringing a longer finish.
CAN'T WAIT for my first taste! They sent me an invite, but again I won't be making it all the way there.....

Had some Fighting Cock Bourbon today.
Nice Rye notes with a long finish.
It's a bit rough around the edges at 103 proof.
An ice cube tames it nicely.
