    WT don't make a bad whiskey and the 8YO 101 is my No.1 everyday pour.

    Re: BOTM, 2/07: Pappy Van Winkle 20yo

    I remember Julian saying that the 20YO is one you don't want to miss, when I asked for suggestions a couple of years back. How right he was!

    I can't put my finger on it but every time I've had...

    Welcome to SB.com...

    ETL is a great whiskey no doubt and one of my faves.

    If it's SMOOTH you're after then give VW Lot B (Van Winkle 12 year old Special Reserve) a try. It is simply sublime...

    Perfect answer for a lower proof JB example. I'd also say that BT 90 proof is a super whiskey to try. If you don't like it you likely don't like Bourbon!

    I think I meant that if there had to be only one everyday pour then this would be the one. BT is a mighty close 2nd but I think that WT just covers all bases and has not ever let me down....

    WT 101 would be it. 101 proof works great and it is always consistent.

    Woodford costs about the same as Maker's, BT 90 and WT 101 in England.

    I first came across it in about late 1998 (I think) and thought it was a nice drop. I have not ever had a problem with the...
