    Sticky: Re: BOTM 6/14: Jim Beam White

    Like others have said, nothing wrong with it as an 80 proofer, other than its price. I'd rather have EWB... it's higher proof, better tasting, and much cheaper to boot.

    Ahh, yes... K&L. That's probably where I'll wind up. Thanks.

    Re: Live from Los Angeles!

    Hey Kearly.... any advice for what stores to hit up in the LA area? I'll be visiting next month (used to live there, but that was before I was into bourbon)

    MM flipped price points with OWA out here, last year.

    It used to be roughly $22-25 for MM, $18.99 for OWA. Now it's reversed..... and OWA isn't even on shelves at all now. So MM is suddenly a...

    Welcome to the club.... I'm in Glendale, AZ. Nice having two major liquor store chains competing here. :)

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 11/13: Pappy 15

    I've only had the 10/107, which was probably my favorite bourbon to date (tough call between that, KC120, OGD114). Doubt I'll ever shell out for the 15 now, given the price hikes and availability...

    Nothing goes together like high proofed whiskey and guns!!!

    Squire laid out some excellent suggestions. I would add Fighting Cock 103 (don't let the silly name fool you)... ...

    Good to know I'm not going crazy, at least. Every time I think I have a grasp on this bourbon stuff, I find out I'm not so smart. ;)

    Oddly enough, picked up my first bottle just a few weeks before he passed.

    I definitely enjoyed the sweet caramel notes mixed with the dry rye spice, coupled with the smooth finish. I'll...

    The 1.75L bottle I purchased is growing on me. I really enjoyed it out of my flask when I went to see Olympus Has Fallen... out of the flask, I didn't get nearly as much copper penny, and the...

    Got one of these suckers back at Christmas-time because of all the news about it going away. Not much of a fan, the minty flavor is just to prominent for me.

    Not 'bad' but I won't miss it when...

    Big fan of OGD 114 as well. Nothing I can really add to Squire's post, but I'll say I enjoy the un-sweetened dark-chocolate flavor I get from it, among other highlights.

    I just opened my first...

    Re: BOTM 6/10: Fighting Cock

    Same here --- the name and the logo scream 'rot-gut', and that kept me away for a long time... but that aside, I find more to like about this stuff then most anything in the $20-$30 range.

    Re: BOTM 6/10: Fighting Cock

    FC is a little scary... 103 proof, super sweet AND spicy... and only $13 for 750ml.

    It's the kinda juice you could OD on. ;)

    But seriously, one of my favs. I too am annoyed that I waited so...

    Yet another bourbon I've been meaning to try... but never get around to. The local stores only have the 1.75L size for some reason, which makes it a little more of a gamble for a 'first try'.

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 11/12: Kirkland Small Batch Bourbon

    Just a heads-up for any fellow AZ members/lurkers --- I called the local Costco and you do NOT need to be a member to buy alcohol here in AZ.

    I haven't tried the Kirkland bourbon yet... been...
  18. Re: I just dumped a bottle of EC12 down the drain

    Little update... my bottle of EC12 did indeed open up nicely after about 2 weeks. It lost a bit of the subtle chocolate flavor, but the reduction of the astringent finish made it much, much better.

    Sounds good. I have no bourbon-loving (or even bourbon-'interested') friends out here. Be fun to have someone to talk to about it. :)

    I just bought my first bottle of EC12 myself, last night. Unfortunately, I'm in the same boat as the OP.

    I get a strong woody taste, and a strong hint of chocolate (which is...

    Hey all ---

    Just wanted to introduce myself.

    I'm fairly new to bourbon, starting to enjoy it roughly a year ago... and have been slowly getting my footing in this great hobby.
