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 […]

William Larue Weller (2014)

Thanks to /u/devoz for the sample. So we’re at a tasting. And I’m told that the next one is William Larue Weller (2014). And like any other reviewer in my shoes, I reacted appropriately. “Well shit.” You see, the last time I reviewed a William Larue Weller, I thought it was pretty good. And because I didn’t immediately […]

Buffalo Trace White Dog Mash #1

Thanks to /u/devoz for sharing this sample with me. A few people have asked me: Why do you review everything? And the answer I usually give is simple: Mental Illness. But beyond that, I learn new things each time I review anything. And it’s taken me a long time to realize that white whiskies have something […]

Thomas H. Handy Sazerac Rye 2015

Thanks to /u/boyd86 for this sample. All aboard the hype train! I’m drinking a BTAC! Oh, wait, that’s stupid. Okay, so back down to normal. We hear about these whiskies coming out, we hear about people camping out, we laugh, we get a chance to have some, and even some of us (myself included) join in, […]
