    Yes, that are what I was referring to. I've had all three of them and they are solid. I would probably pick up the rye on the right.

    Thanks for the comparison.

    Honest.


    I had a wee bit of my Woodford tonight for comparison.

    The doubled oaked is stronger, earthier. More, I dunno, complete? Hard to say. I do prefer it over the Yellowstone, nice as it was.

    Just opened the Jim Beam Single Barrel I bought at the distillery. It is the best Jim Beam variety I have tried so far, significantly better than Jim Beam Black which I consider okay for the price.

    A lot of variability on the EC BP releases.... Good news is that they range from very good to "one of the best bottles I've ever opened".
    Only time I ever saw the 18 in the wild it was priced like a unicorn. I bet it's good stuff.

    @Yung shared a sample of Knob Creek 18. Very excellent.

    Here's what I sent him upon tasting....

    Poured the knob creek 18. Immediately smelled apricot and hazelnut on the nose. Big hazelnut, very unusual in a good way. Very pleasant. Initially nutty on the palette, transitioned to almonds and brown sugar after sitting for a few minutes. Wife enjoyed it much more than the Stagg Jr...
    I'm only so-so on KC's regular stuff. Plenty enjoyable, but not a favorite. The 18 was way good... and had some very forward nuttiness that I enjoyed and at a level that is unusual to find. Review HERE.

    Actually.. Wife tried the Stagg Jr and threatened to call 911 and report me for domestic violence (130+ proof)... Took her a few minutes to recover from the first sip.
    The Stagg was quite hot and spicy until it had a chance to air out for about 15 minutes. Wife was sorta kidding... I think.

    I'm clearly the wrong audience for all this talk of leather, apricots, hazelnuts, and toasted whatever.

    This, however, I get...

    Well, I guess I wouldn't say no to one...

    Sure, why not.

    Got a bottle of Elijah Craig Barrel Proof today from a friend on another forum. My first drink in three weeks.

    Ah...hits the spot.
