    Re: BOTM, 12/07: The Year in Review

    This is the thread that really got me into SB.com. Bottlings seem to change, and so do members of this forum. So, I wouldn't have any qualms with repeated BOTMs as they would invite new and...

    Re: New Member from Gigaplex, Texas

    Yeah, I like Willie but I wouldn't recommend that Whiskey River stuff. Good to have you aboard. Hope you're able to find something that you like as much as or better than the OC10! BTW, do you fly...

    Re: Hello from Louisville

    And welcome to the board from the south. I've been jealous of the members who live up in your area. To be within driving distance of so many distilleries must be nice. This is a great place to...

    Welcome Rich! You've come to the right place. There is an absolute wealth of bourbon info on this site. A lot of folks here (myself included) also appreciate a good SMS. Enjoy!

    Re: Christmas Present

    I'd just get him another bottle of Rare Breed. But since it needs to be something different, and he likes strong flavors, I would suggest a bottle of Elijah Craig 18 year old. It's something...

    Re: New here, but not to Bourbon!

    Man, I sure wish I could find a place like that around where I live! The other night I was in a local bar and asked, "what bourbons do you have?" The reply... "Crown and Jack." (Jeez) Welcome...

    Yes but are there any particular bourbons that you like on the rocks? I think that's what he's asking.

    Re: On the Rocks.....

    Hello Larry. Three bourbons that I think are wonderful over ice (I use crushed ice) are: Buffalo Trace, Jim Beam Black and Maker's Mark. Most others I drink neat or with a splash of water.

    Re: BOTM 9/07: Elijah Craig 18yo

    This is one of my favorites. It takes bourbon to a whole new level. It's adventerous, challenging, edgy, dark.... and by god it works! It really pushes the boundry of my understanding of bourbon;...

    Re: On Lots of Rocks

    If I can throw in my 2 cents: JB white label does not seem to be very popular on this site. But if I were in a bar that had a special on well drinks, and JBW was the only bourbon in the well, I'd...

    Re: intrigued

    Elijah Craig 12 yo -- good price, excellent product.
    Maker's Mark -- good, high quality beginner bourbon. (Also good for non-beginners, of course.)
    Buffalo Trace -- good price, excellent product, a...

    Re: BOTM, 7/06: Woodford Reserve

    My first bottle of WR (06/2006) was, at the time, my favorite yet. It was the first whiskey that I would only drink neat. I bought a second bottle and was not as impressed. It had a medicinal quality...

    I appreciate the info, guys. I have a couple bottles of the PVW 15yo in my stash and I only break it out on very rare occasions. Like, twice already. I'm still pretty much topped off on the stuff....

    Re: BOTM, 6/07: Jim Beam Black

    With Knob Creek in the mix, KC would be a 10. (Absolutely wonderful on its own.) JBBL would be a 5 or 6. (Got ice?) And JBWL would be a doable 3 or 4. (Make sure there's ice!)

    Re: BOTM, 6/07: Jim Beam Black

    I am not a big Beam fan. However, during these hot summer months, I will fancy a whiskey poured over crushed ice. JBBL really fits the bill in this department. Something about this stuff does not...

    Re: Tasting Notes on EW 1783?

    I recently purchased a bottle of this stuff. It is labled 'No. 10 Brand' and does not have the '10 Year Old' age statement. I'm the dumbass above who got it confused with the Evan Williams Black...

    Yep, I feel like an ass. I must have looked at it wrong when it was on the shelf because I could have sworn that there was something else next to it that was the regular black label. Likewise, the...

    Thanks. I'll definately grab a couple bottles next time I see the '10 Years Old' label. Looks like I have something completely different.

    Thanks Martian and thanks Tboner for the references. I know the places you're refering to. My bottle just says 'since 1783' without a '10 yr' or 'No. 10' anywhere. Jeez, I'm wondering if this is...

    Does your bottle have an age statement on it? (10 yr) If so could you point me to a location in the Dallas area that sells it? My bottle did not have the age statement (which, I understand is the...

    Re: greetings...

    Another vote here for Old Weller 107 and Elmer T Lee. Also, I find Old Rip Van Winkle 107/10yr to be a tad bit richer than the Old Weller. You might like that one. Weller 12 yr is pretty smooth....
