I'm just curious...what is the rarest whiskey you've come across?
Sinners bourbon. Ive only seen it in pictures thou.
This has got to be one of them, Silent Stills 29 Year. This was an independent bottling of Glenlochy single malt.
I've got me some Sinner's.
I also have Pappy's Rye which I was lucky to get.
I hear good thing's about both...
Okay, on second thought, I guess this is the rarest whiskey Ive ever had. (sippin' it right now)
May just have to pour a dram myself...
You talked me into it bro....bottle number 007, originally reserved for somebody named James....
Eat your heart out Bond!

I was lucky enough to get to try this last St. Patrick's Day, and I'm actually not sure how rare this is, Middleton may come out with a new batch every year... But it sure was tasty and is expensive enough to make it seem rare.
Elmer T Lee!
That's one I've never gotten to try and have always wanted to. I did get to it see it bottled at the buffalo trace distillery, even got to stick my face down into the holding tank to get a smell, fresh out of the barrel.
I was supposed to use Elmer T Lee for a whiskey tasting I was doing with Whiskey America and just before the event old Elmer up a died and caused a run on it and the distributor couldn't get it and we had to do a last minute switch to Blanton's. Ive still never tried the Elmer.
For me it was Buffalo Trace's millennium / milestone release. Milestone V. They are getting ready to hit their next milestone and do it all over again. I was at the distillery a two weekends ago and they were talking about they are getting close to hitting the next milestone in the fall or end of the year this year if everything goes as planned.
If you're not familiar with the millennium releases. Every millionth barrel they create, they put the barrel in its own single barrel warehouse called, 'warehouse V' in the center of the distillery between the other aging buildings. They leave it in there to age until they hit their next milestone, once they hit the milestone, they take the old barrel out, bottle it up, and sell it for charity. They donate the proceeds from the sales of the milestone barrels and then do it all over again. They are currently on their 6th barrel if memory serves.
It's some exceptionally good stuff. With the extra age these things get on them, it truly puts out a tasty spirit that's not like the standard Buffalo Trace or their single barrel releases. Which in its own right, is good stuff as well.
Where does one find such a whale? Is it auctioned at the brewery?
Beer friends are the best friends.
It was donated for charity auctions. Occasionally you'll stumble across it for auction. My rarest is the Port Ellen 9 I have in my bar. 30 years old. It makes me cry.
It's time to pour it, drink it, and let it go.
Let it go...let it go...
Oh, I've been drinking it and sharing with my other Scotch fan friends. Just taking my time.
Do a review of it in the whiskey database,
