    Thanks. I could never get into the super peated whiskies. I dont mind a smokey finish, Bunnahabhain is probably my favorite Islay.

    Not much of a scotch guy myself...as I prefer bourbon. I finished my 20 year PVW the night the Cubs won the World Series. Now I need to replenish my top shelf

    I can't seem to keep bottles long enough to form a collection lol. Just got some highland park 12yr. Im really enjoying the sweet and smoky flavor combo. Last bottle was aberlour abunadh any recommendations for bottles around $50 for scotch or bourbon I'm all ears. Usually like something a little more full bodied/flavored.

    Also just noticed the Russell's reserve single barrel in the back. Thats my favorite bourbon for the money though some batches are better than others. Is that a special Blanton's?

    Nope.... Just regular blantons. And yes the Russells SiB is definitely one of the best values for the money. I found the older label stuff to taste better than the redesigned label. I've been able to score Colonel EH Taylor small batch for around 50, another solid choice if you can grab it.

    If you are into smokey with a sherry finish, try Bunnahabhain 12 year, it can be had for around $55 in my area. Glendronach 12 is another solid sherry dram for around the same price point.

    HP is great stuff but the price is creeping up to the point where other choices make more sense, especially anything higher than the 12.

    I've only ever tried the pappiez in a bar. It was fairly decent stuff, I would never pay more than MSRP for a bottle though. The secondary market is crazy town on that stuff.

    I'll tell ya what I'm trying to hunt down now, High West Midwinter Night's dram. Can't get enough of it. By far the best rye I've had. None of the stores around me get allocations of it though.
