George T. Stagg 2019

Thanks to Devoz  for this dram. What was the occasion: End of year tasting which should have happened at the end of last year but Covid happened and we all decided that we’re dedicated to enjoying whisky, not dying to drink whisky. Important distinction there. This whiskey comes after two lighter Scotch’s I had to open up the […]

Colonel E.H. Taylor 4 Grain

Thanks to /u/devoz for this sample Elephants. They linger around the room. And the annoying thing is, as with elephants in small rooms, they come up. Someone mentions it. There’s a trunk that slaps you because it’s in musth. What am I blathering on about? A certain Bible that’s for whisky. Written by a cat eyed person […]

Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Rye 2016

Thanks to /u/devoz for pouring me a sample. I usually feel a bit sheepish about some of my reviews. They’re behind the times, to be honest. However when it comes to the rarer, harder to find stuff, I’m going to review them when I get the chance. Period. Take, for instance, Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Rye from 2016. Yes, […]

Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Rye 2009

Thanks to /u/Orehnmadgib for pouring me a sample of this dram. It’s odd having a drinking buddy like /u/devoz. He’s going to joke around and be cool, and then you find out he’s the number one reviewer of BTAC on Reddit, even though he doesn’t live in Kentucky and totally doesn’t have the last name “Handy” or “Lee” […]

Stagg Jr. – 9th Edition

Thanks /u/devoz for the sample. I recently posted a review of George T. Stagg from 2017, in which I noted I enjoyed it quite a bit. During the review, some had mentioned that they had tried it alongside Stagg Jr. – 9th Edition, and during blind tests, had preferred it over the last year’s GTS. Quite the bombshell, […]

George T Stagg 2017

Thanks to /u/xile_ for sharing this dram at a recent tasting. So jump back a few years. And my father, who figured out that bourbon is his drink (after decades of being a rum fan and not remembering the exact type of whiskey he loved). Someone tells him about BTAC. Specifically someone tells him about George […]

William Larue Weller 2017

Thanks to /u/devoz for sharing a sample of this dram at our most recent tasting (that I’ve written up). So what does one have second as part of a Bourbon tasting? Given the options, we decided, based on something we had reviews for, it would be William Larue Weller 2017. While it is cask strength, it is […]
