    Re: BOTM 5/10 Ancient Age

    I got sick on AA and Coke when I was in high school in the laste 1960s. Never bought another bottle. The 10 Star is another story. It's a definite best buy. My favorite liquor store has not had the...

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

    My advice is to not make the mistake of not trying JBB because you don't like JBW or didn't like it in the past. JBB is light years better than the JBW or Beam's Choice. Fortunately, the Black is...

    Re: Old Grand Dad BiB

    I have not tried the 86, but I like the BIB more than the 114. The 114 really needs some watering down.

    Chuck, I must be learning something. I agree with everything you say about the WT and BT signature characteristic. OO and JB Rye seem to me to be two totally different animals from other Beam...

    I tried a small bottle of BH as part of the Beam Small Batch Collection. I can only describe it as subtle and elegant. BH might be good for someone being introduced to bourbon. I usually drink...

    Re: On the Rocks.....

    I like my Bourbon over ice in summer. I would suggest any of 100 or 101 proof brands. WT 101, Old Grandad BIB, JW Dant BIB, Old Fitzgerald BIB. Don't forget to try some WT Rye.

    Re: At what temperature is bourbon best enjoyed?

    Always neat if I'm trying a spirit for the first time. Neat in the winter (we have short winters in North Central Texas) and slightly warmer than room temperature. On the rocks is much more...

    Re: BOTM, 6/07: Jim Beam Black

    I tried a 375 ml. bottle a couple of months ago. Lots of flavor there but I thought it was thin and actually a little harsh. Not a good combination in my book. As far as Beam products go I would save...

    Mark, looks like you are off to good start. I am gradually moving up to the more expensive bottles. You are starting at the top.

    Re: Tasting Notes on EW 1783?

    MGades, you may be correct that the 1.75 L bottles I have seen may be the Black Label. But, this label is different than the 750 ml. bottle that says "Since 1783" (7 yr.) and the 750 ml. 1783 bottle...

    Re: Tasting Notes on EW 1783?

    I'm sipping the ER 101 right now. Good stuff for the price. I did a Google search for EW 1783 and came up with one reference to a 1783 7 yr. old. I'm wondering if the 1783 "No. 10 Brand" is a 7 yr....

    The 1.75 L bottles I have seen at Goody Goody (don't you love the name) on Harry Hines and Centennial on W. Northwest Hwy. may have a misleading label. It doesn't say 10 yr. old. It says "No. 10...

    Re: BOTM, 7/06: Woodford Reserve

    I didn't care for it either. I am not educated on taste subtleties yet, but I definitely got the coppery taste. Not to my liking.

    Re: Tasting Notes on EW 1783?

    The Wine Enthusiast rates EW 1783 in the 96-100 points range, their highest rating. I have not tried it yet. 1.75 L bottles are all I can find of the stuff. I have been hesitant to buy the large...

    I will try another bottle in the future. The BT is at the bottom of my tasting list right now. There are so many others to try first. I won't give up on BT.

    I just recently tried my first bottle of BT. I didn't like it at all. Too musty and dank. Most that post here seem to like it. I was disappointed.
