Bourbon: Finding the Good Stuff

This is the seventh in a series on Bourbon by Zach Pearson. Read them all: Bourbon, Bourbon After the Act, Bourbon: What it is ... and isn't, Making Bourbon, Who Makes My Bourbon, Producer Capsules., Finding the Good Stuff, Tasting the Good Stuff, Neat, Mashbills, Geeky Information and Resources.

So look… this doesn't work in Oregon. The best thing to do here is to keep an eye on the Next Month Price Change list, and find things that you want that are going way down in price. Most recently, this was the infamous Laphroaig 10 for $20.25, but about a year ago, A. de Fussigny Tres Vielle Cognac dropped from $220 to $100 a bottle, and if you know that it’s a 50 year old Cognac that hasn’t been made in 10-15 years… well, let’s just say it was worth the drive to Eugene to pick up two bottles.

It also doesn’t work in Washington, which is too new at the private liquor sales game to have dusty old bottles lying around. There’s a lot of clean, bright new liquor stores and some helpful people, but taxes being what they are up there… I’d just avoid wasting a lot of time looking in Washington for liquor.

    This doesn't seem quite there yet. I assumed whiskey with a 'e' didn't mean Scotch so used Evan Williams bourbon. To me it's a little flat and metallic - some expressed orange zest helped. Maybe reduce the absinthe and go for a non-Punt vermouth?

  • Re The Hallelujah, 3 days 2 hours ago drinkingandthinking commented:

    It's okay but basically just tastes like the ingredients rather than a carefully balanced cocktail.

  • Re The Bloodborne of Beverages, 3 days 23 hours ago M.grandiflora commented:

    Love everything about this drink. Perfectly balanced.

  • Re The Cableknit, 4 days 15 hours ago jensck commented:

    Seriously strange. Maybe it's because I used a different coffee liqueur (Tempus Fugit), but I'm not sure these flavors work together.

  • Re String Theory, 4 days 17 hours ago stirred commented:

    Good winter vibes. Same vein as Left Hand and Black Lodge. Add to rotation.
