    Re: BOTM, 1/09: Weller Antique

    Oh, I knew this was a good week to come back to this board! OWA is a staple in my cabinet and I will drink a mighty pour of it tonight in honor of straightbourbon.com!

    Re: BOTM, 7/08: Wild Turkey American Spirit

    This one catches me on a cash-strapped month. So unless I find a bar where I can get a pour (not likely) I will be missing out on the WTAS... for now.

    Re: 1 bourbon a month

    I'll second the BOTM idea- though some months, the selection will stress your budget.

    In that price range and with your preference for higher proofs (which are two realities you and I have in...

    Re: BOTM 6/08: Bulleit

    I had a bottle of Bulleit last month and while my pallet is not very refined either and I'm still a bourbon noob, I do recall Bulleit seeming a tad rough. I wound up using it as an element in my...

    Re: Father's Day suggestion?

    I say this without having tried the stuff, but it seems to me that nothing says "thanks Daddy' like a bottle of "Pappy." I wouldn't mind getting a bottle for Father's Day myself!

    Re: BOTM, 5/08: Ten High

    Goody Goody was out of 750ml bottles- they said they've had a run in the last day or so. Maybe this forum is more popular in Dallas than we think. The 1.75 bottle was only $15.99, but I didn't want...

    Re: BOTM, 5/08: Ten High

    Yup- I'll be picking some up in the next few days. When I post notes, be kind. I'm an absolute noob and will more than likely write some terrible notes.

    Then again, I think booze tasting is right...

    Re: BOTM 4/08: The Classic Cask

    I looked and looked and could not find this bourbon in anywhere. Hopefully, I'll do better with May's BOTM when it posts.

    Re: I like WT 101, need more suggestions

    I second the vote for 1792- thought to me it seems less dramatic than the WT101. Still, it was a wonderful flavor.

    Re: Early Morning Cocktail (EMC)

    :slappin:

    I like BT or MM in coffee just fine, but I prefer Amaretto or Bailey's. Call me a sissy, but before noon or after midnight, I don't mind liqueurs at all.

    If you like flavored cigars (and I, for one, do,) the Maker's are OK. I tend to prefer Drew Estates Acid Kuba Kuba with a nice pour. It is an infused cigar remnecent of a high-quality pipe tobacco...

    Re: Newbie vatting questions.

    OK- I used the Bulliet 375ml bottle as my vatting vessel. The Bulliet was already in the bottle, and when I added the BT, the bottle was just over one-third full. I topped it off with Benchmark, put...

    Re: Newbie vatting questions.

    I was torn between Benchmark and Bushmills and I decided to go with the cheaper option since I don't know what I'm doing. I'll be mixing later tonight and will report back on the end result.

    Re: Newbie vatting questions.

    OK- I just re-read Gary's suggestion about mixing with Canadian whiskey. What about Irish whiskey? I enjoy Bushmill's white lable, but often wish it had more gusto. I've considered stepping up to...

    Re: Newbie vatting questions.

    Thanks for the suggestions! I'm not really worried about buying from a particular distiller, I just want a nice mix. So if Old Taylor and Benchmark would both work equally well, I would probobly buy...

    Newbie vatting questions.

    I've got about two fingers left in a 350ml bottle of Bulliet and about 3 fingers of a 750 of Buffalo Trace (my second bottle of BT in a month!) which I'm thinking of using to start a vatting.

    Hello from Texas

    Hi gang!

    I'm one of those people who use to think whiskey was something you slammed just to get tanked.

    Now that I'm older and less wild, I've come to enjoy the art of moderation and have...
