    Re: New from Tempe, Arizona

    Welcome from the central plateau!

    I haven't been around here much for a year or three due to medication issues. It used to be a font of information; I'd bet it still is.

    Do you ever get up...

    Andrew,

    Welcome aboard.

    What have you tried, and what do you think of them?

    Re: New guy here

    That's wonderful!

    Now all you have to do is decide how you want to amortize the shipping cost.

    I once started to order a single, mid-priced bottle. However, the shipping cost was going to...

    Re: New guy here

    When you do, ask for the spirits specialist, Brett Pontini.

    In one case some other employee said that shipment to a certain state was not allowed. That information proved to be incorrect.

  8. Re: Time to Sample (Greetings from Arkansas)

    Welcome aboard!

    I would rate Knob Creek highly as a bourbon to take on a camping trip. It's robust enough to compete with the smoke from a campfire, but smooth enough to enjoy without ice or...

    Re: PVW 15 vs. Lot "B"

    Never an expert, now barely conversant with the topic. (For medical reasons I limit myself to literally a sip once or twice a month.)

    I never did a side-by-side with PVW 15 and Lot "B". I know I...

    Re: What do you call yourself?

    Tim,

    I was referring to the word "whisky", not the C-word.

    And only in jest, at that.

    I seem to recall that there was an interesting story about your decision to adopt your title, but it's...

    I keep hoping Tim (ratcheer) will reply. His signature line says it all (although I question his spelling of one, key word. :grin: )

    Then you might enjoy Chuck's video even more than his book. The video isn't as informative, by a long shot, but it is a wonderful tribute to the tradition of bourbon production.

    I have a question, if you don't mind. Are the sort of guy who enjoys the destination more or the journey?

    If it's the former, I suggest you get a copy of this book. The author is a...

    Re: new in florida

    Gibb,

    Welcome to the group!

    Maker's Mark is a wheat-recipe bourbon, and Jack Daniel's isn't a bourbon at all, strictly speaking. (There have been many discussions here on the latter point. If...

    Re: Howdy from Dallas

    I am not a fan of Blanton's either, although I'd probably buy it now and then at, let's say, half the price. I refer to RHF as what Blanton's wants to be when it grows up. :grin:

    IMO you can't go wrong with any bottling that has Van Winkle on the label. I haven't had the opportunity to try any of the Four Roses bottlings.

    In addition to the other, fine suggestions you might consider other brands produced by the same distiller, Heaven Hill. For example, there's J.T.S. Brown bottled-in-bond (BIB). As noted in another...
