OK, so it's been a really long time since I tried the BMH....but I knew the bottle we had was a Julian bottle. So tonight I poured a Pappy 15, Lawrenceburg BMH 14 and a WT Tribute. It tastes more like the Pappy Tribute!
OK, I'm done for the night! Tasted Tim's three samples and now this! Quite honestly....they're all starting to taste the same!! Good Grief!
To parse a little, by "Van Winkle whiskey," he means Stitzel-Weller whiskey, i.e., wheated bourbon.
Van Winkle Whiskey? While that is one way to describe it, I guess, it doesn't really say whether it's a wheat or rye based bourbon-he did use and own both types.
I also find it interesting that they were all even ages (well, except the rye was a 15yo) and now are odd ages (again except the rye is 18yo-though that may have changed since the last time I looked)
I was at a bar earlier this week and they just got in a bottle of BMH 16yr. The bartender said they only got 1 bottle via a lottery thru their distributor. and only 1 case came to Indiana.
Has anyone seen this bottling ?
I found it to be incredible.....:grin: To me it was like a cross between Pappy 20 and Hirsch 16..... Id love to find a bottle !!!!
so, if anyone has any info or intel on this one, let me know....:grin:
Was this Lawrenceburg or Bardstown bottled? The L'burg was fantastic stuff (actual S-W stock from back in the day) A case of that could have turned up somewhere, I guess. All the Lburg stuff (apart from the 15yo rye) was even age statements (14,16,18,20 yo) after moving to B'town it went to odd (again with the exception of the rye, 18yo) age statements 11,13,15,17,21yo...then to NAS.
I've had the 11, 14 and 16 and yes they were all good.
I still have a 21 unopened and they were all from Bardstown.
I got them in 2006, when did the Lawrenceburg's come out?
