    Re: BOTM, 11/06: Jim Beam

    I never participated in this BOTM because I couldnīt get hold of a 350 ml bottle.

    More the fool me, as I discovered when I sampled it at a hotel bar in Stockholm this wednesday.

    A charming...

    Re: BOTM 9/07: Elijah Craig 18yo

    Somewhat shame-faced, I have to admit that I have never tried this bourbon. All the details Iīve gotten over the years seem to scream out loud: too old! Well, too old for my tastes, at least.

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

    Dixie Dew and JW Corn are extremely invisible brands. You canīt find much about them on the Internet, either.

    Are they only sold in the deep South?

    Re: Im smokinson, and Im a slacker

    Absolutely! Iīve had one bottle of this and it is sorely missed.

    I had no idea that it was discontinued but that may well explain my futile efforts in securing another bottle.

    Re: BOTM, 7/07: Blanton's

    OK, thanks for that interesting info. "Single-tree barrels" sounds intriguing. I gather that is an experiment that has yet to see the light of day?

    The level of char for each brand, is that info...

    Does this differ between each BT single barrel brand or do you mean haphazard variations?

    Re: Do you let it breathe?

    Absolutely! Please note also that each whiskey can differ dramatically in behaviour from the other. A diversity that, in my view, only adds to the excitement.

    Re: Do you let it breathe?

    Youīre getting it, Nick. :)

    Seriously, I was talking exclusively about the nose. Does swirling change the taste also? I donīt know. To be honest, I have never even thought about that.

    Re: BOTM, 7/07: Blanton's

    Irrespective of expression, Iīve never had a Blantonīs that has been less than wonderful.

    Sad to say, the 93 proof, whoīs long been a staple here in Sweden, is no longer available. As a...

    Re: Do you let it breathe?

    Whether swirling the glass actually improves matters or not, is a difficult thing to say.

    What I know for sure is that it changes things. In my experience, certain characteristics come to the...

    Re: Bulliet Bourbon

    Good question!

    Re: BOTM, 3/07: Old Pogue

    Just a little facetiousness on my part, Joe.

    I have to admit, though, that some of the members here display a curious, sort of, the-customer-is-always-wrong mentality, which I find a bit odd.

    In what way does it differ from other FR releases?
