    The good, cost effective, bourbon hunt is never ending. This thread has actually been super helpful .... its probably also contributed to my alcoholism.

    local availability of some of the recommendations has been my biggest hurdle.

    I just received Russel's Reserve 10 yr Bourbon as a gift from a friend. I've enjoyed this bourbon for a while so it was a good gift. I'm more of a scotch guy, which is generally more expensive, so when I want a less expensive whisk(e)y I often will buy a bourbon over a scotch. I can get a decent bourbon like Eagle Rare for around $23 or Evan Williams 1783 for $19 where as a decent blended scotch like Monkey Shoulder is usually around $33.

    Equal parts Laphroaig 10 and Jim Beam Honey.

    Dont think about it, dont judge, just do it.

    Iím surprised they havenít found a way to deep-fry it.

    Iíd just buy a bottle of Drambuie and not ruin my Laprhoig. Maybe they see a chance to increase sales of an admittedly polarizing whisky.

    Anyone try 1792 Full Proof? Whiskey Bible gave it top marks this year. A buddy just gifted me a bottle for Christmas...trying to decide on how special of occasion I need to open it.

    And in other news, we scored a bottle of HW Midwinter's Night Dram in the lottery.

    I bought one. Had some last night. It's fat and viscous without getting oily. Tastes like relatively young material but obviously a good selection of barrels in the final blend. Great drinker. Best occasion to open it is a weeknight when you want a dram that's gonna give you a nice little slap on the ass.

    I had about four fingers of McKenna SB tonight. I thought Iíd finished the bottle off awhile ago but came across it in the garage- pleasant surprise. It still kills me that that stuff is allocated now. It seems like just yesterday I was telling people to buy it in place of the overpriced Sazerac brands.

    This is a good deal for someone to get stagg jr, which is harder to local that weller. Stagg jr is also considerably better than weller sr imo.

    The Angels Envy I posted a bit back is a nice smooth bourbon. I don't know how much the port wine barrel finish helps, but it sure is tasty.

    Apologies for mentioning a Canadian blend, but was just gifted a bottle of Crown XR. As my table whiskey is ~$12, it's a bit intimidating looking at a single bottle that cost more than a case of McKenna. Anyone try it? Online reviews are....interesting.

    Nothing super wild but enjoying the holiday in a free state. The EW was for my cream sauce to go with my venison tenderloin. Click image for larger version.

    You could just get a bottle of this, and not have to do any mixing.

    The finest bourbon I have tasted. Yet.

    I did this. It was fucking terrible and an unconscionable waste of good scotch. I even felt bad about wasting the shitty bourbon.

    I am ashamed.

    You, sir, have led me astray.
    focus.

    Over the holidays I had several people enjoy it, and one who wouldnt stop drinking it. No "fucking terrible"s, but i get the reaction. Did you try to drink it neat or something?
