    tbh I have no idea what “about what you’d expect from a $60 bourbon” means because you’re basically in range for tons of great stuff before it gets totally overpriced and ridiculous. That being said Rare Breed is like $46 here and Four Roses single barrel is like $41 and those are my personal gold standard for the prices.

    tbh I feel like Jefferson's is basically overpriced juice in a really nice bottle, (or gimmicky stuff like the aged at sea) in general, but I’d be glad to be proven wrong.

    Fuck we get ripped off on booze here. 20 years ago when I drank Rare Breed it was about $40 but now it's between $80 and $95. Jeffersons is up around the same price although the Reserve is not readily available at all shops. Four Roses easily tops $100 a bottle but is available in so few places it may as well not be available.

    Dingo dollars don’t help I’m sure. But hey I’ve always wanted to try Starward and I have no access to that at all. I’m going to assume you do lol.

    Governments who see tax on booze and smokes as it's saviour is the big problem. Tax on smokes is something like 65% of the price and indexed to rise twice yearly. Booze is taxed by the alcohol content and rises biannually (I think). It does suck but it's one of those things that allows us to have free healthcare...and corrupt politicians.

    Starward Single Malt is good but at $125 a bottle I will say it's not worth the price. There is cheaper alternatives straight from the distillery which can be as cheap as $65, or one they call a "whiskey cocktail" as low as $45 but there is also a top end option where it can be personalised, as in "made for ..." which has an increased alc content and a bigger bottle for $165.

    Everything in that price range that I encounter just seems to end up feeling like someone else's take on Blanton's, and I never loved Blanton's. Too sweet too soon, and smooth to the point of I dunno, just being soft.

    Not exactly clear, but first time I've seen the septal occluder inside my heart on x-ray (right side of pic), pretty funky.

    Laphroaig is my favorite. Love that stuff!
    Jeffersons is awesome. Way different. Smooth and sweet. Not like a typical bourbon at all. Big fan
    Currently drinking this Wild Turkey Rare Breed. I dig it. add a little bit of water because it's 116.8 proof

    laphroaig is a fav of mine too but i understand why it’s divisive haha, it’s basically TCP meets burning wood.

    ardbeg is good as well, lagavulin is probs my favourite of all though. always been an islay guy

    Im probably a bit of a masochist but i drink Rare Breed and OGD 114 neat. I don’t like to water down barrel proof stuff.

    I found my first bottle of Eagle Rare this year, yesterday. Fucking pumped. I also bought a bottle of Ardbeg 10 to try and just dive into peat and see how I feel about it.

    love the peat!
    Eagle Rare is so close to Buffalo Trace that I'll save my money and just drink BT. It's my go-to anyways
    I'll drink the Rare Breed straight up soon
    Tonight is D&D! A game that's been going on for 10 years or so. Totally going to drink some Laphroaig
    Love Ardbeg and Lagavulin too. Been a while though.

    Starting a job at the Post Office so I'll actually have money for cds, bike shit, record player, and everything else I've wanted for the past however many years.

    Maybe it’s because it’s so hard to get here and the chase makes it better but for around $30 there’s no better bourbon for me than Eagle Rare.

    For stuff in the $18-30 range I would probably say...

    Eagle Rare > WT101 > Evan Williams Bonded > Buffalo Trace > Old Forester 100

    but they’re all good really. Seems like there’s an infinite supply of good whiskey in the states. Makes me extra cringe when I see someone buying Seagrams 7.

    If there was one thing Trump was great at it's giving people infantile yet hilarious and accurate nicknames.

    Trump referring to a living person as "pocahontas" was actually pretty hilarious
