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

    Just another thought: The 80s JB didn't seem to have "the taste" and it is not as noticeable in the older current stuff (KC). Maybe because of the glut we were actually getting older Beam in the...

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

    One reason I think it is something that has either changed at Beam or something that changes over time is I can even detect the difference in 80s and current bottles of JB Rye. I wish I had the...

    You have inspired me. My bottle of current OGD 114 is about 3 years old. Since I have a good source of ND OGD (all three versions) from early 80s, I have not bought another bottle because of the...

    To a lesser degree yes. I also have various OGDs from the 70s(ND), 80s(ND), early 90s (probably ND), later 90s (Beam or ND/Beam blend), and current. I don't taste it in any of the earlier OGDs but I...

    To me the "funk" taste is more sweet, floral, or fruity. I believe it is yeast induced unless Beam uses some funk corn. I can taste it in all Beam products (not MM) but to a much lesser degree the...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 4/14: Weller Special Reserve

    While I like the older AS Wellers better, I still think the current NAS WSR at less than $20/1.75 in Georgia is hard to beat ($30+ in SC). I travel down there periodically and buy 6 cases. It's grate...

    I don't know if I just got a bad bottle or what, but I bought a current bottle a couple of years ago and have tried it several times since but I can clearly taste the Beam funky yeast. It is IMHO...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 3/13: George Dickel Rye.

    In SC, liters are fairly common in larger stores, especially the big brands....Beam, MM, EW, etc. It is funny that they are often not a better deal per ounce than the 750s in the liquor stores. I...

    Re: BOTM 6/10: Fighting Cock

    What's funny is that it is the name and package that makes it such a great seller here in Columbia, SC....home of the Fighting Gamecocks.

    Welcome, I was near you last summer while driving through to Colorado. Stopped at a neat Brew-Pub, Trailhead, in St. Charles.

    I now know it is available in 0.75L and 1L. I picked up a liter today for $23. The $17 was for a 750. Store owners said that there was no 1.75 listed yet.

    Got a 750 of this at lunch for a little less than $17. What other sizes are available? Also found it quite nice and can taste the connection to Bulleit Rye but substantially cheaper.

    I think it is just "Charter 101". When Steve was the buyer at Frugal's (He's now in Texas.), he would discount stuff deeply when he no longer wanted it on the shelf, so I bought several cases of this...

    I picked up a bottle of 17, batch 6, in Myrtle Beach for $60 (1/3 off sale). It is very good but for $60 I'd rather have Vintage 17 and wouldn't buy another for $90.

    I've seen it in a couple of liquor stores in SC. Not just Costco. SC has a law that says a single chain cannot have exclusive rights to a specific liquor so it is available to any store here in SC...

    Two questions:

    1. Does Barton still make a corn whiskey?
    2. How does Georgia Moon compare to Junior Johnson's Midnight Moon?

    Do you mean 8 year or was there another version out there before the 8 year? If so, I have some looking to do.
