Maker's Mark is a excellent Bourbon
It is a wheated bourbon so that gives it a very different flavor profile.
I have only found it once here in 🇩🇴 .
Bottle on my shelf is getting so low 🥲
🥃🥃

I gave a bottle of Bourbon to my favorite chef the last time I had an opportunity to visit his restaurant.
Someone up here needs to check themselves and get back on topic.
We can start with post #305.
Then turn our attention to post #306
Evan Williams is the only Bourbon in the article the individual posted that is available in the 🇩🇴.

Quick reminder of why I started this thread...
What brands? Where to get it? Cost?

That is the information I am looking for. My experience in the Dominican Republic is that Bourbon here is rare, expensive and with very few options. And feel free to make comments on taste profiles and quality.

Any others out there enjoy Bourbon? One of the reason I switched to Scotch even though it is not my favorite is that the prices to found on really basic bourbons here in the Dominican Republic amount to what I feel is highway robbery. Anyone wanna ride shotgun?

But I've switched back because over the years I have found a few more options that made me just forget the money and pay. "Cash rules everything around me! - Wu-Tang Klan. And I am really glad that I did.
I've expanded it to talk about all kinds of spirts because even after all these years...many have not yet discovered that true quality that awaits them when they purchase, open and pour up dat good juice.
🥃 🥃

What would you consider is a "good price" for Haiti Banacourt 4 y.o??
I would like to revisit the question for my good friend johne.
I am not going to go over pricing because anyone who wants to know pricing can goto a store and find it out for themselves.

I would like to share and make some observations.
In my local Olé they now have the:

Barbancourt 4 year
Barbancourt 8 year
Barbancourt 15 year


The 15 year is new.
And I asked myself why do the have this excellent selection of Rhum in my local grocery store that I can walk to?
That is and exercise I will leave to the reader.
I have never tasted the 4 or the 15.
But I can tell you that the 8 is an excellent Rhum for me.
I keep a bottle at all my locations.
In fact...I am sipping on it right now.
And it is good.

After enduring the withering personal attacks since I returned to DR1 from my self imposed exile...
Sipping on my Rhum Barbancourt 8 while enjoying an angus hamburger from Olé and Papitas from Bravo...this is an excellent break.

This thread holds a special place in my heart.
Because even my haters find a way to stay positive and make a contribution.
It is one of the only reasons I continue to play an active roll in DR1.
So if you are still reading...I thank you for your time.
Welcome back!
Thank you my friend.
I shall miss your contributions to my thread.

Sipping on the Bulleit tonight.
Blasting "Mo Bamba" by Sheck Wes

Those with closed minds should not even look it up.
They will get offended and not even understand it.
But that is their problem.

This is my favorite thread.
And one the reasons why this gringo negro likes posting on DR1 so much.

Bulleit Bourbon
Frontier Whiskey
45% ABV

Wanna good bourbon without the straight jack...this is a good one
🥃🥃
