    I have a 23 at my office.
    Alright. So a in an attempt to continue to broaden my palate I'd like to take suggestions. I've done well to find what I like on my own. But with the literally hundreds of small batch whiskeys out there now there's a lot of hit and miss. So, and this goes for everyone, I'd like to take some suggestions from yall and try a new type a week. Or maybe every two weeks.

    A friend gave me a bottle of Larceny before I went to work this morning (yalls evening) It's kinda boring but thats kind of expected out of a wheated bourbon that hasn't been aged much. . Hardly any wood flavor and very creamy. But it is super smooth.

    I haven't read up on it much. But I reckon it's only aged long enough to meet the requirements of a straight bourbon. Would be much better with a couple more years in the rack house.

    A lot of the bourbons are like BBQ sauces. a big conglomerate made with a fake story on the bottle. it's always buyer beware imo as most "craft" bourbon is made by a mass distillery in Indiana owned by mgp. I prefer my single malts.

    I suppose that's true. In the past I've researched a lot before I bought. But thought this might be fun.

    From what I've read. A lot of these new bourbons source their distillate. Hell. I was talking with the superintendant as I walked out of work today and he said that Jefferson's is sourced. I hadn't heard that before.

    I wish I was able to enjoy a whisky the way I enjoy bourbon and rye. But as much as I've tried it just doesn't work for me most of the time.

    Edit to add. By the end of the second glass I can't tell the difference between Larceny and JessieJames

    Re: The bourbon bar

    Maybe I went about getting into whisky the wrong way. Kinda like I've heard with cigars. Start out mellow?

    Anyway. Wanna recommend a very lightly peated single malt?

    Try any of these. Recommend by the glass first, they are pricey. Donít be put off adding a drop or two of water. I like the smoky malts, but not all the time.

    Hey Thumper..Welcome. Have to say that my first impression was the expression "put that bottle up" Long time ago I had a college roommate from western NY who always said put it up, when I would have said put it away, or put it down. We laughed about that a lot. She was such a wonderful person, who came into my life at such the best time.

    So I don't know for sure you are using that expression in quite the same way, but you reminded me of that part of my life. Are you from western NY? or Ohio? or did you just mean put it UP on the shelf?

    Put it up on the shelf.

    Thanks for the welcome. And no. I'm from the Midwest.
