    Sticky: Re: BOTM 10/13: Henry McKenna Single Barrel BIB

    I prefer the HMcK BiB over EC12, but it is splitting hairs. I've had three McKenna BiB store selects and at least 5 other bottles purchased up and down the east coast, and there is less variability...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 6/14: Jim Beam White

    Well, good to know, Joe, thanks! I never knew that is what folks were referring to! You are correct that every time I read "funk", I read it as a negative. JB's style is distinctive, and when the...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 6/14: Jim Beam White

    Enoch - thanks. Very interesting. I don't have any "old" (70's, 80's) JB products to compare to, that would probably help me "get it". If it seems to lessen with age, perhaps a JBW is a good one...

    I confess, same here. JBW, JBB, JB Single Barrel, OGDs, Basil, Baker's, Booker's, KC and KCSB - I'm not sure what is referred to as "funk", which I translate into something perhaps musty, dank,...

    Hi Gerry, welcome -

    Given most Bostonians view the backwaters starting somewhere around Cambridge to Rte 128, I guess we are all part of the same woods! :)

    Look forward to your posts - if you...

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

    Had my first pour of an Old Scout 7 year 99 proof. I can see some similarity to FRSB and WT101, but the FRSB seems "brighter" to me on the palate, while there was a sandalwood note on the nose of...

    Re: 1912 Old Jim Gore

    Given the ullage in that bottle, I'm not sure you would get much for it - if at one point it was the nectar of the gods, it may not be any longer. I still suggest opening it and giving it a go on...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 9/13: 1792 Ridgemont Reserve

    I've been exploring the TPS 1792 barrel selection - I like it well enough, but at 2X the cost of VOB BiB and trading oak influence for the nice fruity balance in the VOB, I don't get it at this...

    IIRC = If I Remember Correctly

    I have a TPS Selection of 1792 - will have to open it tonight and give it a go. Bought a couple after VOB BiB opened my eyes to Barton distilling.

    Re: So my brother-in-law drinks moonshine ....

    What about something that isn't very long aged, in case the char/barrel spice is a taste that might be too much of a jump from his current "brand"? Maybe a Heaven Hill Gold or BiB? Cheap, too ...
