Weller Antique 107
A wheated bourbon with a full-bodied flavor and a balanced palate. Old Weller Antique is bottled at 107 proof, offering a complex taste and bold finish. It’s certainly a recognizable member of the Weller label, with its own unique characteristics to compliment the high proof.
The world’s first single barrel bourbon was created in 1984 by Elmer T. Lee. Named after former distillery president Colonel Albert B. Blanton. Elmer recalled how Colonel Blanton would sometimes handpick a ‘honey barrel’ from the center of Warehouse H to enjoy with others. Many years later, the Blanton’s brand was created.
Today, Blanton’s Single Barrel has become one of the most revered and award-winning bourbons on the market. The Gold Edition was the second version created, after the Original 93 proof. This 103 proof Blanton’s Gold is very limited, but a favorite among discerning bourbon aficionados.
Colonel E.H. Taylor, Jr. Straight Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey
As founding father of the bourbon industry, Colonel Edmund Haynes Taylor, Jr. left an indelible legacy. His dedication to distilling began at the close of the Civil War when he purchased O.F C. Distillery. There, he developed innovative techniques that are still in use today.
Made by hand, this Small Batch Bourbon Whiskey has been aged inside century old warehouses constructed by E.H. Taylor, Jr. Barrels are evaluated and selected to create a perfect blend of distinctive character that is like no other. This bourbon is a true sipping bourbon that honors the uncompromising legacy of E.H. Taylor, Jr.
Eagle Rare 10 Year Old

Blanton's Original Single Barrel Bourbon
In the winter of 1881, Albert Bacon Blanton was born into one of the first families of bourbon history. At the age of sixteen, he started work in the Distillery as an office boy and fast became a leading pioneer in the development of bourbon. From the time he was made company president in 1921 until his retirement in 1952, his Distillery expanded from 44 to 144 buildings to become the largest Distillery of its day.
During that period Colonel Blanton created his very special and limited supply of bourbon - his private reserve - handpicked and stored in what now is known as the famous Warehouse H. Although Colonel Blanton died in the spring of 1959, his legacy lives.
Introduced in 1984, Blanton’s namesake bourbon was the first ever Single Barrel Bourbon sold commercially. The Single Barrel Bourbon is the first of its kind.

2017 Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 6L
Silver Oak’s 2017 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is comprised of 95.5% Cabernet
Sauvignon, 3.6% Merlot, 0.5% Cabernet Franc, 0.3% Petit Verdot and 0.1% Malbec.
In early 2018, the final blend was transferred to American oak barrels from their cooperage, The Oak, where it aged for 24 months. Half the barrels for their 2017 Alexander Valley vintage were new, providing a subtle, layered expression of bay leaf, coconut and vanilla to their wines. Blending before barrel aging—a signature of their winemaking style—allows blends to be based on the inherent qualities of their vineyard components before oak influence. Vintage to vintage, the resulting Cabernets emerge integrated and ready to drink upon release.

All these Bourbons are favorites and very hard to find in North Carolina. Sybil and Stuart went on 'the hunt' to find these rare and precious Bourbons for your drinking pleasure ...
Even in Kentucky, it took 2 solid days of looking in every liquor store and finally in the Buffalo Trace and Heaven Hill Distilleries to score some of the very finest. Some were donated by dear friends who found it hard to part with their favorite but did so for this very worth cause.
Therefore, you won't find a value on these bottles ... the value is what is it worth to you to find it here locally!
So hard to find, but oooh sooo good!
This deep amber whiskey has a complex aroma of vanilla, mint and molasses. Pleasantly sweet to the taste with notes of brown sugar and spice that give way to oak, toffee, dark fruit and anise. This whiskey finishes long and smooth with serious depth.
Value - Priceless in North Carolina!
