That's good stuff. Eagle Rare is also a favorite when my dad and I are on a camping trip.

Four Roses bourbon is pretty good.

And for a blend, Dewars with a splash of water works for me....

I find the 12 yr old MacAllan is better, to me, than the 18 or 25 yr old.

I actually enjoy Old Grand Dad, but maybe someone can point me towards better bourbons?

Blantons is being shipped overseas, along with most of the other good stuff(Higher profits). But I did happen across a bottle of Hancockís Presidentsil Reserve. Itís a single barrel, like Blantons and made in the same distillery (Buffalo Trace). And it was amazing. As good as blanks and only $54 for the bottle. I settled on it after calling and visiting most liquor stores in Jax Florida. Super frustrating.
So order from Here

My short list:
Blanton's single barrel
Hancockís single barrel
Eagle rare
Angels envy
Bullet 10 year

A Smith Bowman here in Fredericksburg is made with mash from Buffalo Trace. It's my local favorite.

Great rist (x thread points)... the only additions would be Four Roses Small Batch and Bulleit Rye.

Do you have a Scotch tasting glass and a routine? My husband laughs at me when I taste and drink single malt.

First I pour and let excess alcohol evaporate.

Then I swirl and heat glass with my hands then smell and sip.

Repeat on swirling, smelling and sipping slowly. Itís amazing how much the bouquet and taste changes during the sipping process.

Ohh think Iíll have me some Lagavulin now.

Never thought about it but sounds interesting. I belong to wine clubs etc so makes sense to check out the single malt society.

I should put all my Scotch and single malt bottles on my pool table and take a photo. Itís quite a collection.

Nice!
Yep, I use a glencairn glass and let it sit for a little while.
Lagavulin....right on! 16 or 12?
You probably have already tried Caol Ila, Laphroaig and Ardbeg if not, all very good. Also if you like the peat/smoke, try Peat Monster by Compass Box.

I am a huge fan of Eagle Rare. One of my recent treasures is Joseph Magnus out of DC. They make some great juice. Its pricey but well worth it. I also love Bookers.

I prefer uncut or barrel strength bourbons.

That is readily available here. Even large bottles. It is one of my house bottles.
