    Re: Aloha, Y'all

    I think we'd all be interested in the state of bourbon availability in Hawaii. There's a lot of discussion of regional variations in distribution and laws, especially with respect to ultra-premiums...

  4. Re: Hello & 1st Question ... Does whiskey go bad?

    My brother had a bottle of Old Pogue open for over a year. Normally that shouldn't be a problem, and there was maybe 1/5 of a bottle left. We tried some the other night and it had definitely turned....

    Re: Newbie from Maryland

    Hi Jess, Dan is right - the best prices around are in Montgomery County. For bourbon, Bartonsville is particularly good in terms of selection.

    Re: New Member from Seattle

    Like Dan (Sijan) there's quite a few of here who don't care for the Hirsch gold foil. If you do a search for Hirsch you'll find there's quite a bit written about it. For me I don't like how metallic...

    Re: BOTM, 10/07: VOB Bottled in Bond

    I need to offer a correction to the VOB 86pf. I misremembered what I tasted. Here's my brief notes from last July:
    Taste: Wood, light leather, menthol — unexpected for a 6 y/o bourbon

    Re: BOTM, 10/07: VOB Bottled in Bond

    I had some at Greg's and we both agreed it was excellent.

    It has a unique flavor but I couldn't say what it is right now. We sampled some in the middle of a series of other bourbons, including a...

    The tasting notes match perfectly with how I remember EC18.

    A few years back a friend of mine encouraged me to purchase a bottle of EC18, saying it was one of his two favorite bourbons (Bookers...

    If you feel like it, it would be fun to get your input on high-end tequilas under the Foreign Whiskey forum. I have very little knowledge of tequilas and would love to learn more.

    Welcome!

    I'm jealous you found a Weller 19yr. I'd love to find one of those. I'm extremely fond of the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection Weller (18yr) so I assume I would like the 19 as well.
