    Re: Long time scotch new to bourbon

    Sounds like higher proof is also not in your wheelhouse. How about Maker's Mark, or Larceny? Sounds like Weller 12 did alright. I might also try Four Roses Single Barrel. If it were me, I'd buy a...

    Welcome from Marietta! If you like ETL, I'd try some Ancient Ancient Age 10 Star. Same mashbill, but different. Glad to have another Georgian!

    Re: Hello from Detroit!

    Welcome from Georgia (but "Made in Detroit")! Congrats on the upcoming wedding! I would echo the Four Roses Single Barrel selections from Binnys (I'm not sure if they have a "tasting room" or not -...
  6. Re: After drinking Makers Mark, Is it worth trying the Jim Beam white label?

    Do they not offer the mini-airplane bottles wherever you are? If so, I'd buy one of those of Jim Beam White. Personally, I don't care for it - but I probably enjoy Bulleit over Makers on most...

    Re: New guy from Pa

    Welcome from Georgia! Harry and squire are right - do yourself a favor and buy a bunch of 50mL (airplane minis) of different bourbons, or 200 mL bottles. Don't be afraid of what looks to be "cheap...

    Re: Greetings from Columbus, OH

    Welcome from Marietta! I'm also a fan of the Johnny Drum PS. I never had it when it had the age statement, and first picked it up in Kentucky for like $25 a bottle. Damn nice pour for that money. ...

    Re: Hello from Atlanta and Rabun County, GA

    That is some pretty damn old bourbon, and not to my liking either (too much oak/wood influence for me). Many folks believe the sweet spot for bourbon is 8-12 yrs. I've definitely had some 18+ yr...

    Re: Hello from Atlanta and Rabun County, GA

    Welcome from Marietta! This is a great resource with some great folks. Of the bourbons you've tried, any that stood out as really striking your fancy, or stood out as not being to your liking?

    Welcome Pete! Wow - nice collection there! I would encourage you to not be afraid of the lower shelves if you haven't tried them. We're blessed with some great whiskey for $25 or less that often...

    Re: Hello from North Carolina!

    I'd recommend picking up an EW BIB than, and even trying EW Black Label (if you haven't already). EWSB is a step up from either of those two, but both are solid pours.

    Re: Hello from NJ, originally from FL

    Welcome from Georgia! I wouldn't expect the SB Blend of Old Weller Antique and Weller 12 to be "like Pappy", despite what some claim. But, that is an amazing blend in its own right. I've never...

    Welcome from Georgia! I always recommend folks search out 50 mL bottles of things to try as a way to taste a lot for a little. Nothing sucks like spending $50 on Bookers to find out you don't like...

    Re: Hello from San Antonio

    I think the "poor man's pappy" term is unfortunate, as it sets too high of an expectation. I was told that most like it better than either of the individual pours, and it definitely delivered that...

    Re: Hello from San Antonio

    Welcome from Georgia! How do you like the OWA/W12 blend? Looks like a nice collection already, but one tip I'd offer is to look for 50 mL where you can of things you haven't tried. I easily bought...

    I lean more rye than wheat (and there aren't as many wheated options out there), although there are some that are near/dear to my heart. I personally prefer Old Weller Antique 107 over Weller 12 and...
