I finally tried some Blantons. A guy I work with, a veteran himself, let me barrow his bottle because he doesn't drink very often.
I liked it, but I stand by Maker's Mark for the price. I drink bourbon too often too pay the difference.;-) But I appreciate a brother sharing his bottle.

See if you can find Buffalo Trace. They make Blanton.

At $22/bottle in MN, one of the most underrated bourbons out there.

Summoning up my best Seinfeld impression: “What is the deal with peach Crown Royal?”
Haven't tried it. I don't get flavored bourbon or whiskey but peach may be a good touch. I like Jim Beam but don't care for the apple or vanilla stuff.

Isnt it about time for a pumpkin spice
bourbon ? 😕

El Paso reminds me of Rancho Cucamonga

I had to fly to Australia to get Blanton's. The Duty Free store in LAX had like 8 bottles. None of the shops I frequent seem to have Blanton's in stock more than an hour or so.

If I am not mistaken. I belief the little honey hole. That I found in southern Missouri. Had copious amounts of quite a few of the aforementioned brands listed above. It is where I found that small 375ml bottle of Bond & Lillard bourbon for $49.95. Indescribably delicious nectar from Kentucky!

Buffalo Trace is one of the best kept bourbon secrets. I have bounced around over the years and it has become my go-to recently. I get it at the Class-6 on post for 25 bucks. Buffalo Trace does have a hint of sweetness - but I love it - and for the same price as Beam, Jack, etc...

Never had Blantons - but it sounds like a good time.

I truly believe they are cutting back production. I live in KY and it is hard to get

If you can find Bond & Lillard. You will be pleasantly surprised at it maturity of flavor. That is hard for me to articulate. YES! Your husband will like it👍
Must ask the small store in our town if they can get it. Hubby likes to watch some kind of tasting show when I see he has it on like to sit and watch with him. When I was young Bourbon was my drink of choice .
