Great line up, and I am just North of you in the Frisco area. My good connection dried up last year, so now unfortunately the Pappy is a bit expensive. I have moved on to Blanton's. What else do you drink and like?

Picked up a few recommendations from this thread today. Tomorrow the hunt continues in another big town. Also paid homage to the Pappy Gods last month.

I was gifted these. Not really familiar with either. Should I re-gift or keep?

Nice pickups Jim. I just got the Stagg Jr last weekend myself but haven't gotten around to opening it yet, been on a Blanton/Weller drinking run lately. Any thoughts on the Stagg?

We did a blind tasting with 30 different contenders, Pappy and other top shelf stuff were amongst them...

Basil Hayden’s bourbon came out 2nd voted by 15 tasters.

Disclaimer: we were all drunk by the end...

Basil Hayden bourbon is my standard Go-To whiskey. Their Dark Rye, though, left me uninspired. It is finished in port barrels, or maybe fortified with Port in the cutting phase to bring it to 40% from barrel proof, and it was just too sweet for me. Not what a rye is supposed to be. But a lot of my friends really liked it when we did a tasting several weeks ago, so to each his own.

The Stagg Jr. is very unique. 126 proof so its a sipping drink to say the least and I drink it neat to not diminish the flavor. Very very complex flavors from start to finish. Takes a few sips for it to fully develop. I rather like it but you cant drink a whole bunch for obvious reasons. I will be picking up more of it when I see it available, highly recommend!

I have had a bunch of Weller but still looking to score my first Blantons. I have seen the bottles before but didnt know how good it is so I never got any. Hopefully that will change soon.
