    Re: Newbie from Central MA

    Hi Mark,

    Looks like you're pretty close to Purgatory Chasm, a neat place, haven't been in a few years. I'm a little east of you in Braintree. Welcome. If you haven't found it yet, head to...

    Re: BOTM 1/11: J.T.S. Brown BIB

    This bourbon has some very weird and different flavors going on, but like all HH young bonds, I really like it.

    The last time I was in KY I searched heavily for this bottom shelf gem and only...

    Re: Should I open it?

    What he said above ^

    Makers Mark lets you dip your own bottle after the tour. I think this is wicked cool, but could never do it myself. That's because I personally believe all whiskey should...

    Re: Are mini bottles a reliable sample?

    What everyone else said.

    In the opposite direction, I always thought that Lagavulin mini's actually tasted BETTER than the 750ml. Not that there is anything wrong with the 750. I voiced this...

    Re: All HH corn whiskey is the same. Really?

    I generally don't see them on the shelf even in KY. Go to a dozen decent sized stores in Louisville/Lexington and you're lucky to find them in one. I picked up some Mellow Corn BIB last trip and...

    Re: At what temperature is bourbon best enjoyed?

    Actually, I find many whiskeys improve significantly by a slight warming. I always drink out of a medium size brandy snifter and cup the bowl in my hand. The warming brings out additional pleasant...

    Re: BOTM 5/07, Four Roses Single Barrel

    Marvelous stuff, a must have. Given proper attention and consideration, it can have one of the most complex noses I have ever encountered.

    Re: Bourbon festival sampler

    I know what you mean. There's lots of talk about who's going, and how much fun it was, but it is tough to figure out that simple basic question, what the heck is it? :)

    I've had the very good fortune to try all three variations. Contrary to many, I am a fan of the Gold Foil. It has a ton of dark fruit on the nose and palate, which I really like. I find the Gold Wax...
