    Re: Jim Beam White vs Black vs Jack Daniels

    Absolutely right -- and I hope you find that we 'old-timers', while an opinionated bunch, have our own, distinctive tastes, and almost never universally agree about anything.

    I suspected you might not be in the U.S. (you can add your location to your forum profile -- see "User CP" -- but certainly don't have to), and had forgotten Gary's mention of its age in Canada....

    Re: Jim Beam White vs Black vs Jack Daniels

    Okay, I'll take a shot -- and hope that you can read past the next line without feeling it's pejorative (because, it's not!).
    The reason I think you like Jim Beam standard white-label is because of...

    Re: Hi, new to bourbon

    Famous Grouse, the best-selling Scotch blended whisky in Scotland itself, is an excellent, always-handy drink, and a great price/value play in the 1.75L size domestically (at least, here in Tennesse,...

    Re: I just joined up here

    My household 'well' bourbon has become the Jim Beam-produced Old Crow Reserve (black label). It is 4yo and 86 proof, NOT to be confused with the execrable Old Crow white label, which is Beam's...

    Re: New to bourbon, some questions

    Old Crow, also, comes in two 'flavors' -- the standard white label, which is 3yo Jim Beam whiskey (and probably the worst thing they put in a bourbon bottle); and the 4yo/86-proof, black-label...

    I know where there's at least a single bottle of Bernheim on a shelf within a reasonable drive (25 miles?). PM me if you don't find one.

    Re: storage in the cold

    More than a few people deliberately store their liquor -- including bourbon/whiskey -- in their freezer at home. The only 'harm' it does is deadens the taste a bit while it remains cold. Back at room...

    To answer your post title question in transposition, though: yes, all bourbon IS sour mash whiskey.

    I can live with that. But let me repeat, too, my chief point: once you've opened the bottle, it has no value. You can't return it for refund; you can't sell it. Granted, replacement cost becomes a...
