Scored a bottle of willet rye and pot still while in KY this weekend. Still searching for the family estate bourbon. Will get back to KY sometime over the year to keep adding to the collection.

Going to try some of this tonight. It's from a place a couple of towns over. The owner goes up to Bourbon country several times a year, tastes a bunch of casks, and selects some to be bottled for his store. I've tried about six different offerings and all have been great. This'll be the first from Maker's Mark I've tried.

Which was your favorite of those last rounds?

Andrew, I'd rank them:

Blanton's
Elijah Craig Barrel Proof
Four Roses Single Barrel

The other 4 are good to fair. I'll buy Contradiction, High West and Bulleit again as they're good for the price. Definitely won't be buying Redemption again.

I really like the four roses I have had. I just noticed the stores up here carrying the Elijah Craig also I'll have to check it out.

Those Elijah Craig Barrel Proof offerings are some of the smoothest high octane whiskies I've ever had. I had one early last year that was something like 132 proof and with a just a splash of water went down with not a bit of burn.

I've got the A119 and B519 releases, James, they're 135 and 122 proof respectively. I agree with you 100% about the smoothness, I think the 135 proof is even smoother than the other.

Had a couple glasses of Weller Red last night. Liked that much better then the green.

Well ****, went in the store real quick and found elijah Craig, didn't realize it wasn't Barrell proof until I got home. Hope it's still good.

The Small Batch is good, just not as good as BP. :-)

Went high octane again last night to pair with an NC.

Went with the higher proof ECBP tonight...A119 is 135.2 proof. A few drops of water to open it up, and it was delicious.

Tried the regular EC last night. There an ice cube in it and was very good. Might relax the BP search, Not sure I would enjoy the higher octane right now

Glad you liked the regular stuff! Much less expensive too.

King James and I killed about a third of a bottle of Weller 107 last night before dinner, then moved on the ECBP (122 proof) after dinner.
