just got into the game in December. so far in my bar are Blantons (recommended from my BIL), Weller SR and Weller 12. Weller is stocked pretty well and one local spot. all are great. now i want to re-do our home bar area to accommodate for more bottles.
It'll be hard to try much else. The Wellers family and Blanton are two of my all time favorites.
for sure. that Weller 12 is living up to the hype. i wish the Blantons was in a bigger bottle because I haven't had it long and drinking it like some sweet tea. for $60 a pop, i need to simmer and prolong that bottle but it's great.
I think i'm going to snag an Eagle Rare, Elijah Craig or EH Taylor next. not sure if i can find an Elmer T Lee. trying to build a small collection at home to try.
Yeah the Wellers is a perfect every day sipping whiskey (here we get them, if you can find them, for about $23-$25 a bottle). Blantons is more for special occasions for me.
I love finding the cheap and excellent whiskeys. If you want another cheap every-day sipper, the Larceny wasn't bad. It was a bit more "hot" than the Wellers, but I just put a splash of water in it and took a lot of the hot out.
