A friend of mine knows that I just started collecting whiskey, mostly bourbon, and evidently decided to become an enabler. Up until a couple of months ago, I was more of a buy a bottle, drink that bottle, then maybe try something else kind of guy.
He was kind enough to send me this link – I was grateful and afraid at the same time.
I have since added 3 of the bottles from that page to the collection (Wild Turkey Master’s Keep, Jim Beam Signature Craft Quarter Cask and Woodford Reserve Master’s Collection 2015: 1838 Style White Corn). I ordered a bottle of the Orphan Barrel Rhetoric for that friend as a birthday gift, as well.
There are some short tasting notes at the link provided. I will say that I am far from disappointed with any of the three bottles that I’ve purchased. The Jim Beam is especially impressive at <$35 bottle where I live.
Like the article says, when these are all sold, that’s it, so keep an eye out. I’m waffling on a bottle of the Old Forester 2015 Birthday Bourbon, too. It appears to be going for about $250 a bottle right now. I’m on the fence about jumping that far into the pool just yet, thus far the Master’s Keep is my priciest bottle (and completely worth it).
