    Sticky: Re: BOTM 5/15: Jim Beam Bottled In Bond

    Really well done there, Zillah. I've been on the sidelines with the Beam BIB up until now, if for no other reason than I have several 1L bottles in the bunker of the Kirkland 7/103 at $19.99 (Beam...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 1/15: Wild Turkey 101

    When I began my bourbon journey, I dove into WT with RB which I think is very good but priced a bit high close to $40 around here. I recently realized that I had never tasted WT101, so that had to...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 12/14: Four Roses Single Barrel

    I had the chance to pick up an OESV bottling recently, and it is excellent. Previously, I have had OBSO and OBSK, with the OBSO being ho-hum to me and not worth bunkering, and with the OBSK living...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 12/14: Four Roses Single Barrel

    A staple for me, and one above all others that I have turned other people onto with rousing success. It is delicious neat, and it is the best bourbon IMHO on the rocks. It just works wonderfully...

    8 years? I would hedge and say between 7-9 years, but I'll go with 8.

    Well, Blanton's creates a bit of a quandary for some. At $50, while it isn't ridiculously expensive, it also ain't cheap. Then, just within the BT family, you've got BT which is quite good at $25,...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 5/14: Woodford Reserve

    Oh, that metallic taste is still there... It is really shocking to me how popular WR is, and I give them kudos for pulling that off, because it simply isn't very good IMHO. I was at a party a few...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 5/14: Woodford Reserve

    The last bottle I bought was a year or two ago, and it was thin and metallic. I tried vatting it, which didn't work either. I kind of gave up on it, but I should probably give it another chance.

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 3/14: Maker's Mark

    +1, or at the very least, at 10 years and 100 proof, it would stand up well to the SB blend.

    Never had it, and I suspect I never will. Just too hard to find now, and I got in this game too late to have a stash.

    I gather the closest I've come to it is my bottles of the V17 wheater, and...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 8/13: Elmer T. Lee Single Barrel

    Chuckles, I don't think that is an erroneous description of the stock ETL. It is smooth, sometimes bordering on too smooth. It is delicious, and very pleasing, but sometimes a bit "flat". There is...

    Love ETL. An absolute staple as long as it shall be produced and I shall drink bourbon. I have three iterations of it right now--15 year SV bottling (amazing, and only 1/2 bottle left), regular ETL...

    I've had a bottle open for a couple of months. In honor of the BOTM, poured a couple of ounces over ice tonight. It's a fine bourbon, but not one that I will make a staple. I would choose the...

    Sticky: Re: Botm 1/13: Old Forester Signature

    In full disclosure, I got two of the gift sets with the 375ml bottle and a glencairn glass for under $20 total, so again, price plays a factor in my views on the Repeal Bourbon. At under $20 for a...

    Sticky: Re: Botm 1/13: Old Forester Signature

    Squire's point about the price is important to note, as I view a $20 bourbon differently than a $30 bourbon. Anecdotally, Woodford is very popular in different circles I see, whether friends,...

    That is helpful info, thanks. I have several V17 wheaters bunkered (love the stuff), and have passed up JPS 18 at $80-$90 on various occassions, and seems I might continue to do so. Batch 14 is...

    Hello from NJ

    Hi there, wanted to introduce myself. Though I've always enjoyed bourbon, it wasn't a focus until recently when I started discovering all it had to offer. Really enjoying the journey, and this...
