Favorite KY Bourbons

Page 24 of I picked up a bottle of Fighting "Rooster". I like it for the price and it's nice on a cold day. Advertisement Last edited by Colonels_Wear_... 364 comments | 22935 Views | Go to page 1 →

There was a liquor store right next door to his regular hotel that had all the good stuff there at cost, and apparently no one to buy it. He kept me in stock with Weller Antique, Blanton's, and Rip Van Winkle 10 all sold at cost. He switched positions at work about 6 months ago and I almost cried.

    I did just find out that one of my wife's co-residents is from the sticks in North Carolina, though. Their liquor stores are all run by the state so they sell everything basically at cost, and he was just telling me that the liquor store nearest to his dad's house always has a solid stock of good bourbons for cheap. Now I'm working on developing that friendship

    Bought a bottle of Virginia Black American Whisky on clearance at Kroger today under $20. It’s a 2 year old, distilled in IN, so we all know it’s MGP. The website says it is a high rye bourbon so it’s strange the bottle doesn’t proclaim that. Can’t wait to crack it open Friday. Also found a bottle of IW Harper for under $20.

    Anyone know what the story is behind Bower Hill? I gave a bottle a real close look but don't know much about the distillery. At $85 for a bottle, I wanted to make sure I did my research to make sure it was from Kentucky.

    Bottle says distilled and aged in Kentucky. Internet research mentions something about Silverton, Ohio and some other place in Connecticut.

    The Michter’s small batch is amazing. That was the best stuff I had tonight at the Bourbon Sampler, outside of the Blood Oath from Luxco. They shouldn’t be offering that at this event, considering it’s $110 a bottle. But I’m glad they do.

    It’s sourced and then marketed. Not really sure who makes it but it seems to fall in line for pricing on a single barrel product.

    Evan Williams Single Barrel. Best everyday sipping bourbon for the money. Diabetes has cut down on consumption, but I still have a ready supply for guests.

    Curious why you can’t drink bourbon with diabetes?

    High carb/sugar content from the corn extracts.

    All the sugar burns away in the fermentation process. There are little no carbs in bourbon.
