    Welcome to SB. Not a day goes by that I don't learn something here. That's a lot of double negatives saying this is a great place to learn.

    Re: Hello from Cincinnati

    Welcome to SB. Paraphrasing George Orwell, all bourbons are equal, but some are more equal than others. This is a great place to figure out which is which. And in the end, it doesn't matter which...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 1/15: Wild Turkey 101

    FWIW, there are a couple bottom and mid-shelfers that I keep in SHORT supply. WT101 is one such. It seems that, when I buy a bottle or two, it's always gone when I go looking for it. If I kept it...

    Welcome, t44tq. This is a good place to find helpful hints. As you probably know by now, tastes vary among bourbon drinkers but, as you also probably know by now, there are enough SBers with tastes...
  10. Sticky: Re: BOTM 10/13: Henry McKenna Single Barrel BIB

    I, too, found their "batches" different (not surprising if they aren't lying about the single barrel). Bought a bottle in MD while passing through (far from home) and liked it enough to buy a...

    Re: Hello from GA!

    Welcome, John. This is a wonderful resource and a better gathering place. The only downside is - soon you'll run out of shelf space, closet space, and basement space. Good news is - your ice...

    FWIW, Virginia ABC Stores I visit (I-95 corridor WashDC to Richmond) have Blanton's in 750s ($56) and 375s ($23), but I've not seen more than two of each on the shelf at any one time. Montgomery...

    Re: Hello from Southern Virginia!

    Welcome, Roncag. I, too, am surprised what one can find on the shelves of some of the out-of-the-way Virginia ABC stores. I can still find the EWSB's from 2002 that are Virginia ABC picks. BUT,...
