    Sticky: Re: BOTM 6/13: Wild Turkey Rye 101

    The 81 proof is now everywhere, but the 101 WT Rye is gone or very scarce in Japan. (But I got a couple bunkered. I'm a big fan of the stuff.)

    Re: BOTM 5/11: Four Roses Yellow Label

    Me. I was a mud logger in the Gulf Coast oil fields for a few years. We had to describe drill (rock) cuttings, mostly sandstone and shale. To tell the difference between fine grain, very fine grain,...

    Re: Question From a New Bourbon Enthusiast
