Nice drop!

Booker Noe himself recommends cutting it with "a splash or two of distilled water... to unlock some of the flavour".

Nice! Christmas is my bourbon time of year...had some Rowans Creek, a few Four Roses Single Barrel drams, some Balvanie Double Wood and my friend was nice enough to give me some Pappy 23 Reserve.

I will typically freeze my borboun glass or pour it over one of those giant ice blocks, leave for a second or three then toss the ice. That little bit of water does loosen it up a bit. I had no time for it that night though...I was digging in. 😂

I’ll keep four roses...though i just finished off my last bottle so I picked up Woodford Double Oaked as a replacement; I really dig that! Also got a bottle of Jefferson’s Ocean over the holidays...about three fingers left in that bottle...we hit that pretty hard.

NY Eve-eve...went out with a couple of golfing buddies. I took my shine...family member is a old-school farmer....knows his way around the copper pots. Hands a mason jar for Christmas. Damn stuff will put you on your ass, let me tell ya.

Be honest,,,,is the Pappy all you’d hope it’d be? Same bud that gave me the Bookers has been thinking going halves with me on a nice high
-end bottle of Paps.

Cheers fellas!

Honestly, no. I was drinking Pappy before Pappy got insanely priced and it always blew my mind how hyped it got. Weller 12 is just as good IMO, even the regular Weller is good. I like Rowans Creek more than almost any of em.

Oh yeah, no problem drinking it straight and it smells so good. The first whiff brought me back to when I was a kid. My grandparents must've served something like this at a family gathering decades ago, or maybe someone gifted my dad a bottle of the good stuff. A booze time traveling moment, I guess.

Yes sir...Bookers is incredibly rich and smooth

Uncorked a brand new bottle of Woodfords double Oaked last...smells like maple syrup. Very very sip worthy.
