Better Bourbon and Scotch

Recommended Posts

Very impressive! Do you have a favorite? How do you rate the Blanton's among the rest?

 

Blantons is good and is worth 60-70 a bottle if you can find it for that.  Anything more and I’d pass.  

 

Angels envy and the whistle pig old world are probably my two favorites there.

I'm going to try and get the Blanton's at the duty free shop on board since I can never find it where I live. I just hope I can pack it good for the return flight. If it breaks I will be sucking on my clothes for a long time.😏

Thanks for posting! Would love it if others could take screenshots of their ships whiskey and bourbon menus.

Well I would hope the blantons comes in a box to help protect it.  I’ll be on liberty in May and if they are 70 a bottle I’ll probably buy 5 bottles for myself and 5 for my wife....or however many they have and will let me buy.   I buy them when I can and give them away as gifts.

Just got off Allure and this is what was on the menu.

 

 

No Whistlepig rye on Allure?  It was all over on the Oasis earlier this year.  I would have thought that inventory would be consistent on Oasis-class ships.  Maybe not?

That’s disappointing. I hope that’s not the case for Harmony when I get on in a couple of weeks.

I love the Bullet Rye and a goo Sazerac with Absentine,Rye Whiskey and Cognac.

 

I want a bottle of sazerac but thats a unicorn here in St. Louis.  

 

Its amazing how some places have bottles all day long and others you can’t find.

I love a 50/50 cocktail which is equal parts rye whiskey and cognac with some sweet vermouth and some dashes of bitters. I need to see if I can get a bartender on Harmony to make one for me.

I agree. I see that a liquor store near me might have the Antique 107 but is selling it for $149. Might have to splurge.

 

My first bottle of 107 was last year at $29. Decided I'd pay the increased price of $49 for my 2nd bottle. Little did I realize wifey got me a 3rd bottle for my birthday this year. I was even able to get a bottle of 12. Some times we do get stuff here in MA. 😊

Makes me angry that retailers will mark this up way past MSRP. It's got a twist off top for heaven's sake.😫

I know. Market drives the price though. Plenty of good bourbon out there if some prices go up. Just pray it's not your bourbon. Good to see my daily drinker WT101 is on Allure. Love that she also has 4RSB. I'm on the Allure in November and will be taking notes.

I was on Allure last year and had Whistlepig rye.  I remember specifically because it was my first time trying it.

Hi there! Just wondering, when was your sailing on Freedom?  We leave on her in the next few weeks, and one of our travel mates was really keen on getting Blanton's from the ship

November last year.

Majesty had a bottle of Gold for $90....in a box.  Not sure about "regular".

I’d pay that and wouldn’t think twice.

They had it on Harmony when we were on it last. I never saw it displayed, though, I had to ask for it. With the drink package they poured me like a half a finger. 🙄

I've never tried the Wild Turkey. I must get me a bottle.

Wild Turkey is a mixing bourbon, I would  not drink it neat.

Then maybe just not available at all venues on Allure.  What bar did you find it?
