A new Bottle-share!

A new bottle share of American whiskies, to be precise.

Over the last couple of weeks Master of Malt have been stocking up on choice American Spirits that I really would like to taste. I can only imagine this thought is shared by many of you (I hope at least).

So I’ve compiled a list of bottles that I’d like to order to do a bottle-share with:

  • Balcones Brimstone
    From Waco, Texas, this is barbecue in a glass.
  • Four Roses Small Batch 2012
    According to about everyone who tried it, one of the best bourbons from 2012, if not the past couple of decades.
  • FEW Bourbon Barrel Strength
    Bourbon from the Chicago area, this almost screams prohibition!
  • High West American Prairie Reserve
    Supporting a charity by drinking booze.
  • High West Campfire
    A well blended mix of Peated Scotch, Bourbon and Rye
  • Smooth Ambler Old Scout 7yo Rye
    A rye from one of the up and coming distilleries in the USA
  • Smooth Ambler Old Scout 10yo Bourbon
    Apparently this is ‘the shit’ with the crew at MoM being thrilled to try this!
  • Elijah Craig 12yo Barrel Proof
    I loved Elijah Craig 12yo. At barrel proof there’s just more goodness. And if it’s too strong, just water it down to 45% and you’ll be back at the original goodness!
  • Lost Spirits Leviathan 2
    From California’s Lost Spirits distillery, distilled in a wooden still! Peated to the brink of oblivion and then matured in Californian wine casks. I can’t wait to try this!

I’m on the brink of ordering this, but I’d love to know I don’t end up with full bottles of everything. I wouldn’t mind, but my bank account (read: my wife) would very much.

A set of 5cl sets you back € 57.50, and 10 cl costs € 112.50. That’s including bottles of course, but excluding shipping costs if it has to travel. (€ 5.50 in NL, € 10 in Western Europe and ask for a quote for anywhere else).

Please let me know ASAP if you want in!
