Binny's Mailbag: Bourbon Gift Idea
Let's take a look and see what's in the Binny's Mailbag.
I am looking to get my boyfriend a package of an assortment of his favorite whiskeys for Christmas. I have a few in mind (Jack Single Barrel, Gentleman Jack, Bookers, George Dickle No 8 or No 12 -- just to name a few) but was curious what are the size bottles you sell, since I'm getting a few i was wondering if you have smaller size bottles than the normal ones?
Also, do you have any suggestions as another good one based on the list I gave above that he hasn't had as a new one to offer him?
We carry the whiskies you list in just the 750mL (fifth) size, plus 1.75L in the case of Gentleman Jack.
Since he likes these sweeter, fuller-bodies Tennessee whiskies, we would also recommend that he try some sweeter bourbons. Eagle Rare, a 10 year old single barrel, is a fantastic value and has a really rich vanilla and caramel flavor to it. Buffalo Trace would be a good one as well. It tends to be a little sweet, with a lot of oak and caramel in the profile. Both of these are available in 375 mL (pint) bottles at most Binny's.
All these are less than $30 for the standard bottles, and less for the pints.
Sounds like he's going to have an awesome Christmas! Thanks for thinking Binny's,
