Louis XVIII...  one of the last Bourbons

If you're ever in Toronto, come by for a tasting. When I worked at a wine agency years ago, we had a company party. Near the end of it the owner took out a bottle of very rare white chateauneuf d

Well that's quite full bodied... But a horrible nose though.

I've got: 

- Maker's 46

- 1792 small batch 

- Eagle Rare 

I need to finish some of these before I get more. Or my liquor cabinet will look worse than my stash.

Cool Tim. Have to keep an eye out for those. Anyone hear of Aldi's market ? We have one neer here. The brand name Bourbon was voted one of the best. I have yet to try it....harv

Elijah Craig and EH Taylor are both very smooth, Buffalo Trace and Larceny have a bit more bite to them, but not bad. I prefer my bourbon pretty smooth. The Buffalo and Elijah can usually be purchased for under 30 bucks for a 750ml bottle, so those are right in my wheelhouse!! The Larceny is usually around 35, and the Taylor is typically 50-60, so I don't get to have those very much. All of them are in the 90-95 proof range, though Elijah does make a barrel proof version that is 132. It is pretty potent, and more expensive, but also pretty darn smooth for so high a proof.

 

I've never had Maker's, 792, or Eagle Rare, but I'd like to try them. Eagle Rare is made by Buffalo Trace, if I'm not mistaken. Oldest distillery in Kentucky, or so I'm told.

You really need to try Makers Mark,  Makers 64. My standard. I'd really like to try those Tim. I think this one was about $28 at Sams....harv

I do like my beer to. I love Blue Moon draft with a orange chunk. My home beer is either Bud Ice or Keystone ice. About 6%....harv

Just finished my 64. How's the 1792 ? I think they had that there....harv

It's been a while since I had the 1792 so I'll have to have a glass tomorrow and remind myself. Just finished a beer or I'd find out tonight.

Same here. We've got a nice brew pub nearby and there's a ton of craft breweries around these days. Which makes for a silly amount of choice.

Yes. I didn't care much for it. Can't tell you why just didn't taste right to me. Also its made by by the Makers family. I understand there are three family's. One does Makers, one does Knob Creek and there is a third that I can't recall...harv

same neat room temp  or a cold glass. 
 

Used to also drink this whiskey Saint George . but you can’t get this version of it anymore.  I was told it was made from the mash of Sierra Nevada beer

That's ok Phil. Its a common mistake. Having moved from sunny scunny in Lincolnshire to northern Scotland, i had to learn all this. The local area is rife with distillerys
