    Sticky: Re: BOTM 11/13: Pappy 15

    Only ever had the 15 at a bar in Louisville as part of a 15/20/23 flight. It was absolutely my favorite of the 3. I do have a bottle in the stash that I got from partysource.com about 4 years ago....

    Sticky: BOTM 2/13: Old Charter 101

    If the price was higher it would be a no go, but around here I can usually get it for about $16. I actually prefer EWB for the price but ok for a change.

    Sticky: BOTM 2/13: Old Charter 101

    Personally I am a fan for the price. Makes a great golf course bourbon. Sweet and simple and don't have to think about it, but works great as "swing lube"!

    Took the flask filled with 46 to the golf course yesterday. Since it was 95 plus the bourbon in it got warm quickly. When it was over warmed I could really taste the extra woodiness and spice. Also...

    As a relative newbie another thing I have found is not to give up on a bottle too early. My palate changes nightly it seems. If you don't like something give it a few days and try again. I really...

    Re: BOTM: 3/11 Old Fitzgerald BIB

    Finally got to try the BOTM this afternoon. Wow, what a dissapointment. Just really bad. Not many redeeming qualties at all IMHO. I tried cutting it to 90 proof and all it did was water down the...

    I'd been waiting to reply since I wanted to have 2 or 3 pours of this before I did so. The viscosity is amazing. The flavor is amazing. All of the traditional flavors one would expect. Almost...

    Re: BOTM 2/11: Old Rip Van Winkle 10 yr 107 proof

    I have one bottle of this that has set unopened for about a month. Guess I was waiting for it to be posted as BOTM. Gives me an excuse to open it up this evening and watch the snow fall.

    Just joined, but happened to have a bottle of this sitting open on the bar. For $25 it is not bad at all. I don't find anything great about it, but I do like it. I get a lot of wood and just a...
