Another new edition today. Was supposed to get the Weller CYPB but it was already sold out so this was my consolation prize (was still on my list so I was happy). Now I'm just needing the Weller CYPB and Weller Single Barrel. I'll try this tomorrow but had the Elmer today and I liked it! Sad to hear it's discontinued 😌
Smoke Wagon is a popular brand by me but I haven't been able to score one at my local spot so I had to go to the secondary market (for the first time) to score 'em and try 'em. I tried the Straight Bourbon and Small Batch (far left & center) and I like them. I prefer the Straight over the SB as it's a smoother pour, but both stand on their own. Going to try the Uncut/Unfiltered (bottle on the right) later in the week.
I tried the Uncut Unfiltered Smoke Wagon today and enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Obviously at 114 proof you're going to taste it but not as much spice as I anticipated (which I prefer). If I come across any more, I'll definitely grab them. There's also a Desert Jewel and Private Barrel I need to try but those are a little harder to come by. As for these, I'd rank them from best to worst: Straight, Uncut Unfiltered, Small Batch.
I picked these up today. First Weller I've seen in weeks so there may be more bottles dropping this week or next. I hadn't tried either the BT Kosher or ECTB before purchasing. The BT Kosher just got released this year and that's what I just tried. I liked it, a little hint of mint on the end with not an overabundance of spice. I'll taste the ECTB here in a bit. This just got released recently as well and is popular in my local Facebook group so decided to give it a shot. Saw it available on the secondary market yesterday at $80 a bottle and glad I passed as the retail was $44.
The family grew by 1 today and I got LUCKY! Random drop on a store's barrels pick (total of 8 different barrels). Limit was 2 bottles per person and was able to score them before they sold out. Tried it and it was good but quite a bit of spice (not surprising from 114.5% proof). New rankings: Straight, UU, PB, SB
