    Re: Newbee needs a recommendation...

    Well, without knowing the line up in your area, I would suggest looking for any of the WT line up, except for the WT80. Four Roses small batch or single barrel are also good ones. Knob Creek, good...

    Re: Newbee needs a recommendation...

    Yes, way different. CR is not a bourbon but a Canadian Whisky. Like Timothy said, with such a wide variety of bourbons, it is hard to narrow it down unless you can give us a list of what is...

    Re: New to the forum

    For a high rye'd bourbon, try WT101, OF Sig, or FC. These have the highest rye that I have tried. Try them side by side with the wheatier ones to see the difference. For a straight rye whiskey,...

    Re: New to the forum

    I agree, nice intro to bourbon. My start was with EW black, little more towards the bottom. I have heard a lot of votes for the 15 over the 20 for the VW bottles. I have not tried either so I...

    Re: Tennessee vs. Bourbon

    You are right, but it is 8 rye and 12 barley.

    Re: Tennessee vs. Bourbon

    Both JD and GD have less than 10% rye and barley on their mash bills making them very high in corn. If I remember correctly, JD is 6% rye and 8% barley and GD is 8% on both rye and barley. The rest...

    It is about the same price in TN. It is outside my price range for a bottle. Being it is the BOTM, I may have to budge a little....

    Re: Old Grand Dad BiB

    Not a watered down version at all. It is a totally different bourbon. I really liked the rye spice in the 114. It is a firey bourbon. The BIB was a little smoother. I have only had one bottle of...

    Re: Tennessee vs. Bourbon

    There is not a "Significant" difference between the two. The only difference is, like others have stated, the maple charcoal filtering. As far as everything else (a specific mash bill, barreling,...

    Re: One bottle - what would it be?

    1. WT101, OF, BT
    2. OF Signature. If you are wanting a true rye, go with the Rittenhouse BIB.





    I would go with the WT, as long as it is the 101, not the 80.

    Re: Hello from ATL

    Can't go wrong with the WT101. I will throw out a suggestion for the Weller Antique 107. Good price and a heckuva bourbon. I always suggest the OF Sig. Great at 100 proof and also a good price. ...

    Something I tend to see is some of us will go with bourbons from a particular brand. Some people are die hard WT fans, some are FR fans, some Weller fans, etc. I believe those are some pretty good...

    I throw in another vote for the Weller Antique 107, especially if you like the wheatiers. Enjoy and welcome. So much information around here, it is hard to stay away.
