    Re: just one bottle?

    Some of this might vary depending upon where you live/shop. Here, the WTRR 101 went for about $28, and is the only thing I can think of that would have given me any pause in answering, back then...

    Re: BOTM, 1/07: Old Grand Dad BIB

    Chuck gave you plenty of info, and I agree that you should try to 86, if that's what you have. We tend to focus on the other bottlings here, but the 86 is a fine base bourbon, far better I IMHO than...

    Re: BOTM, 1/07: Old Grand Dad BIB

    This and the 114 are real favorites of mine. The BIB was a regular before I had the 114, and I while now reach for the 114 more, the BIB is my standard for cocktail experimentation. Thanks to this...

    Florida? Thought you were in DC. Saw a few bottles in an Albertson's a few months ago. Where in FL?

    This is one of my favorites, and easily my favorite of those that suit my wallet well enough to always have on hand. Never disappoints, and the predominate sensation is usually clean, upfront,...

    Re: bourbon as a gift

    For a gift, I think packaging matters as well, and the Pappy's and Blanton's are both good there. I'd add Rock Hill Farms, too. Those are also all reliably considered good by the majority of...

    Re: "Old Charter Seven Years Old"

    I think it's been some years since they did the 7 year old, though some may linger in out of the way stores. There is currently an 8 year old, a 10, and a 12 ("The Classic"). There is also a 13...

    Well, I have reconfirmed my prior opinion that Beam is remarkable for being both thin and harsh. OK, I can tell it's bourbon, not absolutely worthless, and fine if you want a sweet drink.

    Never been to Bob's, but if I'm out that way at the right time, I could check out the alliterative possibilities. Sadly, this Bob wouldn't provide that Bob much to work with these days.

    OGD 114 is a favorite of mine. I've always found it free of any real alcohol harshness to remind you that it's 114. Which means you can get a little further along on alcohol effect quicker than you...

    Some of it depends on what it is you like about the Booker's. The Stagg, WLW, and Noah's Mill are also high proof bourbons. But is that what you're enjoying, or something else? Lots of bourbons...

    Unless I misread, the only ryed bourbons you've had are JB white and WT 101. If that's right, it's way too small a sample to draw that conclusion. There's a good deal of variability in bourbons,...

    Welcome. Several of us are in the Atlanta area, so if you can give a heads up whenever you're headed this way, you can probably get a recommendation for a good store or two.

    No, I really can't. Not with any reliability. FWIW, my 10 is SW as well. I've not had the PVW 15 at the same time as the ORVW 15, but as I understand it, there is no difference in the two 15's but...
