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

    This. This. This.

    And I'm not even pointing fingers at anyone else: it'd probably fool me in the right situation. Blind tastings are beartraps.

    I can't imagine not liking it, especially at that price.

    Re: Hello from NYC

    Gatsby, welcome from another New Yorker.

    I don't have any kind of official word on this, but I don't think any 84 proof MM made it to NYC. I have not seen it in any of the bigger stores that turn...
  6. Sticky: Re: BOTM 9/12: Evan Williams BIB AND Heaven Hill BIB

    I haven't gotten to try much HH bonded whiskey, but I really enjoyed the aHHBIB6 and a JTS Brown a year or so ago (I know everyone assumes OldEzra101 is basically HH Bonded, but we can't be sure, so...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 8/12: Eagle Rare 10 Year 101 Proof

    I've had one bottle of ER101, and one in the bunker. I am not sure DSP the one I put away already was, but I can say it was very, very good. The nose was especially nice. I said it here before,...

  9. Re: BOTM 2/11: Old Rip Van Winkle 10 yr 107 proof

    I bought a bottle a few weeks ago and I guess I'm still waiting for it to settle down. It's really forward in a slightly hot, almost medicinal way. The usual profile is under there, but it's...

  11. Re: Greetings from The Ohio State University!

    If you're just trying EW Black, one thing you might do is buy a bottle of Evan Williams Single Barrel, which can usually be had for $25. It's usually a very good bottle of whiskey, and you can see...
  12. Re: Looking for gift to add to husband's collection

    Everyone has a different palate, so just for a different take: I have a bottle of Woodford Maple Finish, and dislike it a fair amount.

    Re: BOTM: 11/11 Old Ezra 101

    I bought a bottle today to check it out, here are a few notes:

    Nose: I expected heavy alcohol, but it's not really there. I get some floral honey, vanilla poundcake.

    Palate: Very sweet,...

    Re: BOTM: 11/11 Old Ezra 101

    Ever since Evan Williams went NAS, I've always wondered if Ezra 101 isn't sort of the better route to take if you're looking for a HH budget bourbon.

    Re: Very Low-End Bourbon

    I have the Maple version and I do not care for it. It's bad, in fact it tastes like regular WE only with a weird woody aftertaste.

    If you want to spend big $, I would go 4R

    Re: BOTM 8/11: Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve

    I posted elsewhere that the one pour of KCSB I had a in a bar reminded me way too much of Jim Beam Black at barrel strength. I'm not sure I want to drop $40+ to see if my initial impression was...

    Since you're in TX, yes, give a try to both OWA107 and Weller 12. And maybe vat them!
