    Sticky: Re: BOTM 12/13: J.W. Dant BIB

    Dant BIB has become the "table bourbon" in my house. I tried the current version back to back with current EW BIB and they were nearly indistinguishable. Since the EW is $12 for 750 mL and I can...
  2. Sticky: Re: BOTM 10/13: Henry McKenna Single Barrel BIB

    I just picked up a couple of bottles of the Midway Liquor barrel selection of McKenna and it is fantastic! Even better than the standard one I picked up earlier. I have compared it against nearly...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 11/13: Pappy 15

    I have tried all of the Pappy and ORVW line...I currently own one bottle of PVW15 and 3 bottles of ORVW, and in the past year I have consumed one bottle of each. I have sampled the Pappy 20 and 23...
  4. Sticky: Re: BOTM 10/13: Henry McKenna Single Barrel BIB

    No, mine is not a special bottling to the best of my knowledge. I picked this up at a Montgomery County liquor store, mostly because I wanted to compare it to my new PHC, which I am absolutely...
  5. Sticky: Re: BOTM 10/13: Henry McKenna Single Barrel BIB

    The more and more I do this comparison with HH BIB, the McKenna seems to shine brighter and brighter. I'm really starting to dig this stuff.
  6. Sticky: Re: BOTM 10/13: Henry McKenna Single Barrel BIB

    Just bought my very first bottle of this one. My initial thoughts, unlike many of you, is that it is a touch more refined than HH BIB, but not by much. I really like it, but it is nearly twice the...

    Re: Hi from Rockville, MD

    Welcome!!! I'm from Bethesda, so we are neighbors! I hope we will have a critical mass here at some point to have a DC area get together.

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 11/12: Kirklnd Small Batch Bourbon

    They just moved a Costco into my area, and I bought a bottle of this. My initial read is similar to fishnbowljoe's....better than Knob Creek. Less astringent and tannic. I saw somewhere on the...

    Sticky: Re: Botm 1/13: Old Forester Signature

    Have not had this in a couple of months and around here it isn't as easy to find as a number of other comparable products (e.g. Wild Turkey 101, Knob Creek). But I preferred the Signature to all of...
  11. Sticky: Re: BOTM 12/12: Jefferson's Presidential Select

    Did a side-by-side comparison of JPS 18 batches 9, 16, 17, and 28 with this year's Pappy 15. In terms of nose, all batches of the JPS 18 were superior to the Pappy. In terms of palate, I preferred...
  12. Sticky: Re: BOTM 12/12: Jefferson's Presidential Select

    I have seen exactly the same thing at Binny's when I visited in mid October. I had previously purchased bottles of batches 28, then 17, then 16, then at Binny's handwritten batch #9. Don't...
  13. Sticky: Re: BOTM 12/12: Jefferson's Presidential Select

    These are among my favorite whiskeys of all time. I preferred the 17 and 18 year to the Pappy 15 in a bar comparison, and the Pappy 20 was a tie with the Jeffersons. I'm looking forward to...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 10/12: Larceny

    Just put the Larceny against ORVW 90. I definitely preferred the Larceny. In a comparison with Weller 12, for me, it was really close, and I preferred the Weller by a whisker.

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 10/12: Larceny

    Tried the Larceny versus my standard everyday wheaters, Weller 12 and Maker's 46. Tonight the Weller 12 won the contest by a hair, and I liked the Larceny and 46 equally. The Larceny has been open...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 10/12: Larceny

    Just tried it for the first time, and I must say I'm impressed. Two thumbs up! I was able to do a head-to-head with Makers Mark and the Larceny was clearly the winner...much richer, more...

    Re: BOTM 5/11: Four Roses Yellow Label

    After trying this in Louisville a couple of weeks ago and being impressed, I just cracked open a bottle of this last night. While the FR single barrel is now my favorite pour, I think I can say this...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM: 5/12 Evan Williams Single Barrel

    This BOTM is the first one were I've actually got a bottle of what is being discussed available. As a relative newbie, I only recently purchased the 2002 vintage when it went on sale (just last...
