Anyone planning on trying Scottie Pippen’s new bourbon? I don’t think it’s available yet where I live. I figure for the 17 years he entertained me I could throw $60 at a bottle.

I generally avoid vanity brands (regardless of product type) as it’s almost always a licensed name slapped on an inferior product.

The exceptions tend to be when the celebrity owns and produces (like getting into winemaking and purchasing your own vineyards), and it’s hard to see how that’s the case here with a product already aged 17 years.

Plus, isn’t the general consensus that bourbon decreases in drinkability with higher ages as the oak overpowers? I know the market will pay stupid amounts for age statements, but that doesn’t equate to good.

It’s different - slight floral notes, a tad less smoke. I enjoy both.

I guess I would like to see Scottie outsell MJ’s tequila brand so he has some bragging rights! 😂

MJs tequila is actually pretty good. You can definitely get better cheaper but it is significantly better than most mega brands.

The equivalent in bourbon would be if this is like ER10 good, I don't have faith in that happening lol.

I avoid the celebrity cash grabs, but would not refuse a drink on someone else's dime.
