Old Grandad 114 is supposedly being phased out or they are lowering production, I forget which. The price at one time was low, but it is climbing. It's a nice Bourbon and not nearly as hot as one would imagine being 114 proof.

That was why I chose the 114 over the bonded.  I may put it in the back of the cabinet and forget about it for awhile.

Found a bottle of Noah's Mill, which I haven't seen in a while. Still tastes good. Very oaky, sweet, and a little hot. A nice floral aroma. A solid summer sipper.

Been looking for this since I left idaho, to no avail. I finally had given up. After work Saturday I was going to stop at the state store for a bottle of Gentlemen Jack. For some reason I decided to stop at the one about 1/4 doom my office as opposed to the one next to my condo. Went to grab my Jack, when I see this out of the corner of my eye. So for 4 years I've been sitting on top of it and had no clue.

You've not been able to find Elijah Craig? In NC and SC it is everywhere. A great value IMO.

No doubt. I can get it at target. Elmer T on the other hand I'll buy whatever I can find since I can't find it.

I have a bottle of old grand dad that my dad got as a gift when he got out of the war. Still hasn't been opened. Just tried high west for the first time really impressed with how smooth that was.

I liked a dram of Nikka Coffey Malt at an upscale bar recently so I splurged and bought a bottle. Even though it was a bit less than double what I normally spend on whiskey, I am really enjoying this bottle.  Who knew that they could make such good scotch in Japan?

The stores here in Oregon are that way. Different stores stock different things.  What I love about Oregon is they publish price lists online, so you can see a big list of everything they carry "somewhere"... sometimes it just takes a bit to find it.  Eventually you can figure out some of the stores in some neighborhoods carry the fancier stuff.

Finished off the bottle of Old Forester 1920 Prohibition Style last night. I just never truly enjoyed this one. At 115 proof it was too hot for neat and even a cube didn't quite tame the beast. At $60 there are better Bourbons for less.

Not sure we have discussed 1897 BIB from Old Forester. I did not enjoy it nearly as much as the 1870 Original Batch.

I'm not a fan of Old Forester. It is too hot in all forms for me.

1870 Original Batch is a nice glass.

Finished up my bottle of Wildcatter 8 Yr tonight. A darn nice glass as all the Frank-lin products tend to be. This one says Elite Brands, At 90 proof I found at best with a cube. I think the price point was something like $35.
