  1. Re: Hello from the backawaters of Massachusetts

    Welcome aboard. I'm originally from Boston and every time I get home I try to find an excuse to go up to Julio's as well. So I second sutton's advice from above. Don't worry about getting to the...

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

    Picked up a small bottle to try out. I've been following the great advice on the site over the past couple of years and I've probably tried >50 bourbons/ryes before finally coming back to the world's...

    Re: Hello from NC!

    Welcome aboard Richard! Maybe a fellow Tarheel? Consider taking a trip up to bourbon country if you can. It's not too far from us. It really opened my eyes, and you can get an amazing selection for...

    Re: Hello from Chapel Hill

    Awesome Craig. Now if only some ORVW stuff popped up. My sense is that anything ORVW is immediately snatched up by the ABC store managers. When I picked up my BTAC, I asked the assistant manager who...

    Re: Howdy from MA!

    Welcome aboard Jake. I'm a transplant from Boston, and it must be about time to get that whiskey and hunker down for the snow on the way! As a fellow Novice, it is amazing how much interesting and...

    Re: New Member from NYC

    Welcome aboard Stephen. While New York is way too much for me these days, you guys probably have the best selection of whiskey on the planet. What a place to be a bourbon fan.

    Re: Hello from Chapel Hill

    SC will definitely be a trip in the future for a bourbon grab.

    As for the Carolina logo, while I am an employee of the university, I most certainly don't mean to flaunt the Carolina blue. I have...

    Re: Hello from Chapel Hill

    I actually got 1 bottle each of the BTAC (except the ER18) through the Wake County ABC. Totally surprised that that worked. I basically emailed all the county ABCs around Orange County and got lucky.

    Re: Hello from Chapel Hill

    One thing I am finding out guys is that the NC ABC actually can get you special items if you just ask. I have already had success with the BTAC with only a few emails. You just have to take the...

    Re: Hello from Chapel Hill

    Thanks Halifax! I'm making a trip out to Kentucky over Thanksgiving and will be hitting up the Liquor Barn for sure. I will keep those SC sites in mind for future trips. Definitely looking forward to...

    Re: Differences in Bourbon Mouthfeel

    Since Wild Turkey keeps coming up, I thought I'd share a quote from Dave Broom's the whiskey bible from Jimmy Russell: Collected off the still at 124-126 degrees (62-63% abv) the white dog is...

    Re: Differences in Bourbon Mouthfeel

    I think the main characteristic that I attribute to mouthfeel is density/viscosity. I do agree that this could also be affected by the oiliness of the bourbon. Thanks for that old thread T Comp....

    Differences in Bourbon Mouthfeel

    One of my favorite characteristics of a whiskey is a hefty, thick, and smooth mouthfeel. As I've been working my way through the enormous number of great Bourbons in the $15-$30 range, I've been...

    Thanks c2walker. I tried to PM you but it's not an option at the moment....I'll try again in a bit. It'd be great to get together with some bourbon veterans!

    Re: Hello from Chapel Hill

    When I say "all in" I'm more referring to where I put my cash down. I would never turn down a pour of Scotch, but I'm not spending my money on it. I've probably tried ~30 or so single malts and I...

    Hello from Chapel Hill

    Hi Everyone - Erik here from Chapel Hill. I've been a wine fan for years, and started with whiskey around a year and a half ago. Of course Scotch had to be the way to go (right?), so I tried a wide...
