Found a lot of great ones but my top 5 favs so far are in order, I really like caramel and toffee notes.; (I made tasting note for all of them. Lol)I was huge on it a few years back but kids put an end to getting bottles in form the states etc.
What's floating your boat?
Looks like something that they drink at the Richmond footy club.Found a lot of great ones but my top 5 favs so far are in order, I really like caramel and toffee notes.; (I made tasting note for all of them. Lol)
I hear you re kids...My disposable income has taken a massive dive but I wouldn't have it any other way. Love those little turd bags to pieces!!!
You had any of these mate?

60% Chol. Has a massive....Kick.Looks like something that they drink at the Richmond footy club.
Nah I tried to get into Bourbon and scotch this year. Haven't really explored past the 60 buck price point yet. Buffolo trace is tasty tho
Are we related...Hammer, nail, head!!The elijah used to be a 12 year age stated whiskey. Cracking juice from Heaven Hill. Haven't tried the more recent editions.
Blantons in the beige label or higher have been great in my experience.
Not hot on the willet. Is that the pot still one?
No idea about the michters. I have a couple of the 16 year gold foils stashed away but I think the whiskies are only associated by the label name these days.
I like most of the "big Beams" you would hardly pick them as relatives to the white label!
Hmm. Is it old? I'd say VPA is low on bitterness and very well rounded by hop aromatics. Drinking from can or glass?Grabbed cube of Nail VPA on the way home. Kinda wish it was Biggie Juice right now. Doesn't have a whole lot going on other than bitter IMO.
If you like caramel notes the Woodford Reserve double oak has always done me right.Are we related...Hammer, nail, head!!
Elijah still made by Heaven Hill, just a delicious as always.
Blantons - I've only had the Beige up, never the green so I can't speak for it. What I've had is amazing.
Pot still is correct, closer to Elijah in flavour with a bit of Knob at the end. (not just for lols that comment)
As you're obviously a learned man in the ways of American Whisky, give my cheaper Michters a bash. You'll love it. Agreed re Beam. I ******* hate it, could believe when I found out my favs are relatives. - When you crack the 16yr olds, please invite me around for a tipple. I'd love it.
Give Knob Single a go too. OMG Caramel, smooth and fire.
Yep I'm a whisky fan pretty much all American scotch Irish Japanese Aussie.Who here is a fan of American Whisky/Bourbon?
Built up a fair collection of late...With tasting notes and ratings.
I'm drinking Woodfood double oak as I type this! - Yep, Caramel and strong berry for mine. RookiePickYep I'm a whisky fan pretty much all American scotch Irish Japanese Aussie.
As for American ATM I have the Woodford double oak , WT rye and hochstadter's slow and low which is a flavoured rye that makes a really good old fashioned.
Perfect time of year for sipping
Woodford double oak is very smooth. Buffalo Trace highly under rated, Elijah Craig highly over rated. Four Roses single barrel is probably my fave. Once upon a time it was the same price as Jim Beam white label in Perth. Haven't seen a bottle in WA in years. Last one was in Melbourne about 2 years ago. Cheers.
I actually really like Elijah. 4 Roses SB I found at Copper and Oak about 5 months ago. Really nice but just out of my top 5. Same price as JBWL - WTF!! No way!Woodford double oak is very smooth.

Reminds me of ISO and how I'd knock off a bottle and pass out on the couch.
Yes mate , same price, about $20 in a little bottle shop on Wellington street about 30 years ago. Girlfriend was grabbing a bottle of Jimmy for a Friday night twosome at mine, no Jimmy so she grabbed something the same price, happened to be 4 roses. You did say you like caramel flavours, so understandable on the Elijah. Enjoy responsiblyI actually really like Elijah. 4 Roses SB I found at Copper and Oak about 5 months ago.

Its a quality drop that's for sure . Some people say it's too woody but a don't think so. I really love the Woodford rye also . Probably the best rye I have tasted apart from Archie rose
Yep if you love sherry cask scotch that is a great bottle and the glenfarclus 15 too.Not much wine talk in here but I snagged a bottle of 2013 Mt Mary Quintet today. Should be absolutely marvellous.
In terms of whisky, has anyone tried the Glendronach 12yo? Lots of great reviews/awards but I haven't spoken to any average drinkers who have given it a go.
Thanks - you've convinced me!Yep if you love sherry cask scotch that is a great bottle and the glenfarclus 15 too.
The glendronach 12 is probably the best sherry cask you can get for $100 .
But sherry cask is not to everyone's taste . I love them but they are a lot sweeter with those dark/dried fruity notes.
The glengrant 10 is probably the best single malt under $70 IMO . Its not a sherry cask but just so smooth , balanced and delicious and leaves a lot of the more expensive scotch for dead .
The 105 that's the high % one ? Is it goodThanks - you've convinced me!
I'm getting through bottles of Glenfarclas 105 Cask Strength, Lagavulin 16 and Glenmorangie 10. The Glendronach sounds like a nice change of pace.
