Battle of the single barrels!
e3750bc2e26406ba4813e228f4623a38.jpg


I bought each of my brothers a “seven-fifty” of single barrel for Christmas. As luck would have it, the distributor had 4 special cask so I took liberty and bought myself a single barrel of Four Roses.
My second to youngest brother just got back from deployment and is hell bent on Jack Daniels, so he gets that brown water select.
The other two have a bit less loyalty to TN water sources so they get the bourbons.
As for my self gift, the Four Roses is quite a treat. Under $40 for a single barrel it has some complex notes. Enjoyed neat and it’s a true pleasure, maybe not as much as Ol Pappy, but my bank account sure appreciates my taste.

As a guy that doesn't drink hard liquor this kinda cracked me up. Sounds like some high society broads at a wine tasting! :rotf: I've never tried hard liquor straight that didn't burn like hell all the way down. The burning kinda covered up the notes for me. Complex or otherwise. :rotf: Hope you and your brothers have a Merry Christmas!

If your drinking JD you can save a ton and get some cheap Canadian crap.
120 proof Knob Creek? Don't know! Kinda stout for this old guy.
4 Roses is a winner.
Best taste. Best price. Buffalo Trace no doubt.

Next step up would be Eagles Rare or single barrel E.H. Taylor.

You owe it to yourself to try George Dickel single barrel. Doesn't have the marketing Jack D has but has beat them in multiple taste test. Much smoother imo. Merry Christmas to all

Short story, my youngest brother attends Auburn and is a officer in the reserves. They had some kind of function and so some of the higher ranks shared some pricey whiskey sips. As everyone sat around with pinkies sticking out my brother slams his back in one gulp! Needless to say he isn’t offered any more “complex notes”, lol.

I’m a Dickle fan all the way but I’ve never tested single barrel. I did have some Evan Williams cask and was impressed.
Need to hunt down some Dickle now and test it out.

Honestly have not tried this cask yet but I’m hoping he shares a nip once he opens it.

Now that's a great story. Thank your brothers for their service!

I'm a blantons fan but my wife bought some Bib And Tucker single barrel and I'd have to say it was pretty good.

Re: 3 Kentuckians vs 1 Tennessean

I have very much enjoyed a bottle of KC single barrel. Had Pappy once, was good but, not enough to pay the price over the KC. Not a big fan of Jack of any denomination. Have yet to try the BT. A buddy of mine goes in with a group on a barrel every couple years. He invited me for the next. I can't wait.

The Dickle single barrel is in a short bottle with a wooden top. Very smooth and would be sinful to drink anyway but neat or with an ice cube.

Or if you really want to get serious and try something great, Bookers! A buddy of mine gifted me one of these not long ago.. It was proofed at 127.4 proof.... and absolutely smooth as I’d ever tried!

AT, I had some Four Roses over Thanksgiving at my parents house in Mississippi. My sister and I sipped about 1/2 a bottle. Don't know anything about complex notes and such but it was smooth with a great taste. Very good neat. Plan on finishing the bottle when I head back the day after Christmas.
