Finally opened this tonight. Elijah Craig Barrel Proof C921. It's my first bottle of their barrel proof line and I must admit it's some of the best juice I've had in awhile.

I've never had the barrel proof but will be on the lookout for it. Elijah is one of my favorites.

Tonight's pour, this year's George Dickel BIB 13 year. I've read great things about this whisky. Honestly I'm not sure how I feel about it. Cherry notes, decent amount of oak, and something else I can't put my finger on, cedar maybe or an old musty cedar trunk? It's definitely different. I will for sure try it a few more times. Anyone else try this yet?

I picked up that bottle the other week. I have similar notes as you, in addition that it was spicier than I expected for a 13yo bourbon. Overall, on paper it is a great value, but in real life it wasn't anything special for me. No regrets buying it (at MSRP) but I will not be restocking this one. I am going to revisit it in a few weeks to see if my feelings have changed.

Exactly, I'm hoping a little more air time after opening it will help it out some

I tried this again last night but I let it get some air time in glass for 20-30 min first. Seemed to help lessen the overly woody funk. I actually enjoyed sipping it this time.

Henry mckenna 10 years old bottled in bond. Smooth and drinkable. Absolutely. Best in the world....per san fran competition....don't think so...but fine. Well above average. Seeing it on the shelves for $59 a lot more lately.

Thatís a decent price. I remember when they were 39$ and thought it was one of the better kept secrets, but after it won best bourbon it shot up to 100$. havenít done much collecting in a while but itís good to see the price coming down a bit. Every once in a while since itís a single barrel youíll get a special one. Cheers [emoji482]

I very seldom drink anything stronger than beer, so mine is very much an uneducated opinion. But I do enjoy bourbon and since there is a Distillery (with roots going back to 1768) about 15 minutes from my home I like to buy locally.

I am a fan of BiB. I also like their 8 yr old Bourbon.  Only $29.

Circus Peanuts....thats the "Something Else" you're trying to figure out [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23]

Seriously,  I'm a fan of Dickel BiB but most of the expressions do habe that very distinct taste that many have described as Circus Peanuts or Flintstone Vitamins.
