    Re: BOTM 7/10: Rittenhouse Rye BIB

    I just saw in a whisky mag in Barnes & Noble that it had just won an award. It was pictured next to GTS. I think it listed WLW and a few others. So somebody must like the stuff. And that would...

    Re: BOTM 6/10: Fighting Cock

    Thanks Joe I am going to give this one a try. I have always passed on this one for whatever reason. This is the push I need to pick up a bottle and give it a pour.

    Re: re-New from Wisconsin

    Re: Affordable Bourbons and Ryes for Beginners

    My bottle of Weller 12 is amazing. It is a Binny's select barrel. It is better than the Anitque 107 in my opinion. That said I love the stuff too. I have been meaning to pick up a regular bottle...

    Re: BOTM, 1/08: Prichard's Double Barreled

    I can not speak to the DB Bourbon. But I have had the rum and it is good mixed with Coke. The fact this bourbon is a collectible makes me groan as I fall into the "But it's made to drank" camp and...

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

    I too like the VOTM idea but I agree that is belongs in the tasting section. For here I think it might be interesting to do a head to head with the winner being declared the BOTM. Rotate this...

    Look for WT rye. It has Green label. Also WT is releasing a new Rye Whiskey under the RR brand also at 90 proof so be sure to look for it. Also in the straight Rye group look for Rittenhouse BIB at...

    Elmer T. Lee or Rock Hill Farms, and anything Van Winkle. Also Four Roses Single Barrel or Small Batch. You should be able to find that one in NYC as it is only sold there and Kentucky or Overseas.
