    Re: BOTM 4/09: OF Birthday Bourbon

    The 2004 was the exception because it was too young at 8 yrs and tasted too much like the normal Old Forester to me. The extra five years they went back to in 05 worked wonders for me. I understood...

    Re: Made in 1917, bottled in 1934

    I'd agree with all said so far, no grain alcohol. BUT, I'd also set back something else that you are fairly certain will be special in its own right just in case. Otherwise when you're old and grey...

    The only bottle of MM I ever bought is still unopened. Not I assure you because I feel it's not worthy of opening, but only because it never whispered my name in the darkness or realistically...

    Sorry Tim but the white label I have is the BIB which is 100 proof and therefore higher than EWSB's 86.6 proof. I think 4 yrs is correct though.

    I dunno guys, I like the new bottle for many of the same reasons but mostly because it gives me something to look forward to: smoking a big old stogie and drinking bourbon when my hair turns grey(er).

    The Very Old HH is another of those "must buys while in Kentucky" bottles for me and I believe TNbourbon will echo that. Great whiskey at an extremely reasonable price. According to Bettye Jo, it...
