Thanks for picking this one, and resurrecting BOTM, Joe. I might have never tried it if not for you.
It might be blashphemus to mention a different variation of the BOTM, but I went to go pick up a black label and saw that the EW 1783 was only $1 more. Is it not that much better than the black label?
I went out and purchased a bottle last night. Looking forward to trying it.
I'm sipping on some EW Black right now. You just can't beat this stuff for the price.
For a comparison of the current NAS and the 7YO, please see our discussion:
Tony, Traver, and I did some drinkin' and some chattin' and recorded our comments.
For the record, I really like EWB. I haven't bought it in some time, but I need to rectify that oversight on my part!
Some great post back to some great old threads I really enjoyed them. You three should get together and do some more of these.
I remember trying EWB 20 years ago and thinking it was surprisingly good for the price. Esquire listed it as "the best cheap booze" a couple of months ago (http://www.esquire.com/features/drin...p-liquor-0209). I don't read the mag, but a while ago they also listed my favorite album (John Coltrane and Johnny Hartman) as the best ever, so sometimes they hit it right.
I can heartily recommend EWB for deglazing your BBQ plate and amazing your friends as huge flames reach for your eyebrows!
I really enjoyed this on the rocks over the weekend and it worked a treat in a bourbon & coke last night. Versatile, cheap and inoffensive good juice IMO :)
