  1. Re: After drinking Makers Mark, Is it worth trying the Jim Beam white label?

    Aloha, Mr. Bourbon,

    My wife and I visited PEI many years ago. The big attraction seemed to be the potato museum. Then there was the beach. The water was frigid in August, but the locals didn't...

    Re: Hello from West Tennessee!

    Thought as much. I grew up next door in Dyer County.

    Before joining SB I was devoted to Jack Daniel's and Jim Beam. While there is nothing wrong with them at all, my horizons have expanded...

    Re: Hello from West Tennessee!

    Welcome, Dustin, from an ex-West Tennessean. Your post is so well-written that I'm guessing you're from Northwest Tennessee.

    Re: Aloha from Hawaii

    Aloha, William,

    Enjoy your bourbon journey. Look me up whenever you're on the Big Island. I've always got something interesting to sip: now working on a bottle of Four Roses 100th Anniversary,...

    Aloha, Mark, from the Big Island.

    I live on the Hamakua Coast north of Hilo. Just returned from the Mainland on Monday with a couple of bottles of bourbon you can't get here: William Larue...

    Re: BOTM 2/11: Old Rip Van Winkle 10 yr 107 proof

    Nice pick, Joe! It really is a delightful whiskey, and I agree that pouring it over ice is counterproductive. I nursed a bottle for 18 months, but now it is gone. I'll be looking for another next...

    Re: Hello from Tennessee

    Welcome on board, Marine Dad! Where in Tennessee?

    Buffalo Trace is a splendid whiskey at a good price. It is not for sale here in Hawaii, so whenever I'm on the mainland I try to pick up a bottle...

    Re: BOTM 11/10: Eagle Rare Single Barrel

    I've been working on a bottle of ERSB for some time now, alongside a bottle of Old Charter 10/86. Both are pleasant enough, with the ERSB being a little richer in flavor. I doubt whether I'll go to...

    Re: Newbie from GB

    Rutter,

    Welcome on board! If you were to offer me a pour of anything in your cupboard, I'd probably ask for a shot of Buffalo Trace. What do you think of it?

    Cheers!

    Hi, Jeff,

    And welcome aboard. I share your appreciation for anything coming out of Buffalo Trace. Go to Frankfort and do the "hard hat" tour if you get the chance.

    Re: What's the point of Jim Beam Black?

    What's the point of JBB? Market saturation. Beam has something for everyone in every price range. Except for wheateds. Oh wait, they bought Maker's Mark to fill that niche. . . .

    Re: Whiskey Composition

    Hi, Blitz,

    Who knows. In the case of the BT distillery, they have only two ryed bourbon mash bills, so it's easy to call one light or low, and the other high or heavy. And they have just one...

    Re: Whiskey Composition

    Squash,

    I, too, am interested in the mash bills of the bourbons I drink. Here's a list I've started. The info is culled from back issues of Chuck Cowdery's "Bourbon Country Reader". Some of it...

    Re: Bourbon reviews are awesome

    Smittyb,

    Welcome to SB! I grew up in NW Tennessee--Dyer County, which happened to be beer and liquor "wet". Where are you?

    Welcome to the site, QM!

    How far from Lexington are you? I was visiting eastern KY in May and a friend introduced me to the Liquor Barn there. It was an almost religious experience. I ended up...

    Dunk,

    Welcome to SB. I'm new, too, and you and I have a few things in common, including age. I was a devoted JD drinker until I stumbled on to Maker's Mark, and then a Kentuckian gave me a bottle...

    Re: BOTM 6/08: Bulleit

    Well, I dropped a shot of Bulleit over one ice cube last evening and it was, as my Tennessee grandpa used to say, "tolerable", which meant better than tolerable and not bad at all. I taste sweet...

    boss302,

    Interesting you should mention Maker's Mark in relation to Bulleit. I'm pretty new to all this, but for now MM is my "benchmark" bourbon--the standard I measure others by.
