I just finished my second bottle of Russels Reserve on Saturday. Very enjoyable.View attachment 182411Picked up these 3 today, never tried any of them before this evening but heard good things. The hype is real, I like Michters small batch a lot and not typicality a rye fan but the michters rye was good. The red wood empire was great at $32 as well! Not sure why I waited so long on the russels 10 year but it didn’t disappoint either.
Another pour of AE tonight at the end of a very productive day with these cooler temperatures. Refurbished a WT bourbon barrel and cut up a few nice loads of firewood for our back patio fire pit. Time to swill and chill

I enjoyed the middle west a lot. Price point was a little higher than I thought it should have been though. Seems like it’s mid 50’s whenever I see it in Athens.My bourbon journey has not been going on long, so I am a real novice but I've tried at least 15 different bourbons that I could get locally, many of which I read about here and trusted you all had good taste. Not many losers so far, but I got a package in the mail today that I have been waiting anxiously for. I couldn't help myself and got the top off of the bottle as fast as I could for just a little taste. Blown away. When I get done with this, I'm going to go sit on the swing and enjoy a real pour. This might be the best bourbon I have had so far, and from a local distillery to boot. Came highly recommended from someone that is a real bourbon fanatic.
