Since Ox likes Zima and not anything good, here is the Bourbon and Booze thread.
What’s everyone’s favorite bottle that you’ve had and your favorite bottle that is consistently available.
For me it’s probably BTAC Handy and Russell’s Reserve single barrel for readily available
I like their full proof. Ton of flavor, but it is aggressive and will slap your face.Lagavulin 16 year old single malt scotch but at $90.00 a bottle I dont buy it except for special occasions. A very drinkable and affordable bourbon is 1792 single barrel for $30.00

Haven’t tried Booker’s yet. I have a bottle, just not cracked yet. Blanton’s is wonderful. Not sure it’s worth the price, but it’s good
For Bourbon? I can give you some picks, what’s your price point?
And start talking up the ABC guys. They can be great sources. ABC will get stuff and hold back until asked about it.
Yeah, the barrel proofs are my favorites. They don’t really filter them so you get more flavor and if they are too hot, just add water.ABC has made some good recommendations. A manager pointed me to Bookers. I have asked about allotment bourbons but they say they put everything on the shelf. My son in Nashville has a small tasting room and always goes for barrel proof whiskey like Stagg and Elijah Craig
I've had both the 18 and 25 year side by side. The smoothness and the finish is the only difference I noticed.VSG is an all time favorite. McCallan 18 yr is very good but I haven't tried the 25 nor the Woodford Reserve. Is it worth the $ ?

As for Woodford, it's always been a staple of mine to drink neat.
