    Sticky: Re: BOTM 2/14: Smooth Ambler Old Scout

    I've been seeing this on the shelves near where I am pretty regularly. I've been tempted. But then again, it was on the shelf with a lot of other new stuff -- stuff that I have frankly been afraid...

    Re: Hello from Northern Virginia

    Welcome! They are very, very similar. You'll get more woody/oak flavors from the Makers 46, but that's about it. I personally prefer the 46 to the "stock" expression because I find regular Makers...

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

    I got to thinking just a minute ago about... "Maybe I need to buy a case..." And then again we were just talking about a commemorative bottling...

    Maybe it'd just be better to see if we can get a...

    Now we're starting to be as superstitious as baseball players!

    It's bad enough we're talking about ETL here. If there was a bourbon I really don't want the whole world to wise up to and cause...

    Great BOTM selection. ETL is definitely one of the favorites. Surprised not to see people talk about cherries in the flavor profile...

    I too wonder what will happen to the brand now that Elmer...

    Re: Hi from Rockville, MD

    I too am up for a get together. There was talk on another thread but it fell through for me. The Jack Rose should be "the place". Any excuse to go there is a good one.

    Good to see you on the forum, Bduts. This is the place to get your whiskey knowledge on, and definitely the place to learn how to get some good stuff without paying as much as you've been paying...

    Re: Bourbon Making Advice

    What do you prefer?
    Delicious bourbon at a cheap price.

    Does price dictate quality?
    Not necessarily, but the age of the spirit weighs on the price.

    What makes that bourbon special? (Is it...

    Sticky: Re: How To Get Started.

    I wouldn't call Knob a "low proof" bourbon. When I hear that term, I think of 80 proof budget bourbon. If you like the Knob Creek, try the Single Barrel expression of it -- IMO it's quite an...

    Re: BOTM: 3/11 Old Fitzgerald BIB

    My feeling about the current OF BIB: When I first got into bourbon, I found some of this stuff for $12 in a local liquor store and thought it would be worth it. And, for the price, I thought it was...

    Re: Low alcohol bourbon

    This doctor of yours is clearly a quack and should have his or her medical license reviewed. ;)

    I sort of wonder if you could water down your whiskey and then try to re-introduce flavor into it...

    Re: Breathing and open Bottles

    Agreed. When I open a new bottle, again, especially with the wheaters and/or the higher proof expressions, there's a whiff that almost smells like "pure" alcohol of some sort -- almost like rubbing...

    I'm of the school of thought that says that if you've got an untrained palate, to stick with an apples-to-apples comparison with the proofs of the whiskeys if you're interested in really learning...

    Re: Weller 12 v. OWA 10/107

    Well, when I last saw the handle a couple of months ago, they were still using the old label -- I never saw the new OWA label on a 1.75... There is a small chance, though, that those might have been...

    Re: Weller 12 v. OWA 10/107

    The Weller 12 and the OWA 10/107 are both very nice indeed and I partake of them both liberally and regularly.

    To be honest, I think they're both comparable in quality -- the 12 being "smoother",...

    Re: Where to go next?

    IMO you should start off with other wheat recipe bourbons, because that's what Maker's is. My personal opinion on the matter is that wheated bourbons are better and more interesting at somewhat...

    I completely agree here. I started my friends off on this -- we did a bit of a comparison between wheat and rye bourbon, and it was really fun and educational. I used some markedly different...
