This is a old thread and thus I did not instantly notice that somebody had replied to it.

But if it means anything to do, thanks for that mate

Might check that out some day

Smile Two major scores while on vacation

I've gotten into the habit of randomly dropping into out of the way liquor stores while on vacation. We got back this weekend with one bottle of Wild Turkey Master's Keep with the presentation box and the bottle autographed by Wild Turkey Master Distiller Eddie Russell, Review: Wild Turkey Master's Keep
AND one 1500 ML (half-gallon) of W L Weller Special Reserve (original Pappy Van Winkle wheated bourbon Review: W.L. Weller Special Reserve )

Been looking for both for ages

Loved my vacation

Funny, I've picked up each of those in the last couple of months. Luckily, didn't have to travel further than the local liquor store for either.


I did order a bottle of Woodford Reserve's 1838 White Corn from a store in CA, recently.


The Master's Keep is good, really good. The Special Reserve is decent, but not terribly complex. The WL Weller Antique is better, and still less than $30/bottle. I've never had a chance to try the Weller 12, but I'm on the hunt.

Nothing. I no longer drink bourbon and just drink scotch.

I'm always on the hunt whenever we travel.

We live close to KY so Tri-State stores run out quickly.

Anyone here know why the folks at Maker's Mark spell "whiskey" without the e, i.e., "whisky"?

What is the difference between whisky and whiskey? - whiskyforeveryone.com


At this point, it's nothing more than preference/tradition - for American whiskey, at least. I doubt you'll find many Irish Whiskey makers that would spell it without the "e", just as I doubt you'll find any Scotch distillers that spell it with the "e".
