Now that's one you don't hear much about or often enough - Hancock's PR. I agree good stuff, not quite mama slappin' (for me) but a solid performer.

During a tasting about 1 year ago, Mark, Chris and I tasted the Hancock's Presidents Reserve, and I recall we all enjoyed it quite a bit. The downside was (is) that outside of KY, it was felt by us that it is overpriced given what it is. During my last trip to KY, I made a point to pick it up and paid about $35 for it. At that price, it is worth it, but for $45 it's not IMHO.

I agree. Down here, when it's available it's usually in the $40-$50 range, which does seem overpriced for what it is and relative to others in the same price range.

So funny to hear someone else say that. I say that up here when folks ask me "What's this bourbon like?" and folks giggle and look at me like I've lost my mind.

OK, based on your expert recommendations, I switched out a bottle of the ER 10 SB for a bottle of Hancocks. I always enjoy trying something new. Thanks, Marc 8)
