    Poll: Re: Your Favorite Wild Turkey Regardless Of Price

    I voted KS; although my current bottle is RB (nice Christmas box). I have both RR 101 and 90, and I realize for many this is heresy, but I do enjoy the 90 a wee bit more.

    Re: BOTM, 12/06: Old Grand Dad 114

    OGD 114 has been a favorite of mine for quite some time. But I don't really enjoy it at all in the summertime; definately a winter warmer. Awhile back Chuck C. was discusssing the higher proofs...

    Dane, you cracked me up! But back to th Pappy; this is, at 107 proof one of the smoothest bourbons I have had the pleasure of indulging. It, along with it's big brother the 20 yo, and the rest of the...

    This weekend, I was at a bar at the Broadmoor; they had an extensive bourbon list (and they were smart enough to separate Tennessee, North American, and Kentucky). But NO Van Winkles. I asked the...

    After reading all the posts about price, availability, and comparisons to the discontinued ORVW 15, I figured, what the the heck, I'll have a glass! PVW 15 is probably one of my favorites, with their...

    Re: BOTM, 11/05: Russell\'s Reserve 101

    Over on Proof Changes, Chuck Cowdery gives a good theory on the proof change, and in this case, it may not be money. I too believe it's marketing and mass appeal. But, at the end of the day, I think...

    Re: BOTM, 11/05: Russell\'s Reserve 101- found some

    Well last night I opened my new bottle of WTRR 101. Compared to the 90, the only difference I see is a tad more bite to the 101. Neither are my favorite pours; however, I do enjoy the Kentucky...

    Re: BOTM, 11/05: Russell\'s Reserve 101

    Good advice, Ken. As I stated in my earlier post, I may like the 90 ever so slightly more. Whatever the reasons, and many here believe it to be greed, WT made a marketing decision. Although I am not...

    Re: BOTM, 11/05: Russell\'s Reserve 101

    I had a couple of pours at a hotel bar in Denver a few weeks back. They also had Rare Breed. I liked the RR 101 a lot, although I am not a huge WT drinker. But I did go out and get a new bottle of...

    Re: BOTM, 10/05: Buffalo Trace

    I'm on my third bottle of BT. For $17.00, it is an outstanding drink. Last night I had a pour; it was after an Eagle Rare Single Barrel. The BT came across with a more pronounced buttery flavor, most...

    Great, I just bought the Jefferson Reserve Saturday night. At least it was on sale. I had to spring into action, as once a month a large liquor store here has "Family Day" (no, it doesn't mean 12...

    Re: BOTM, 7/05: Old Forester

    Last night I had a two finger pour. I still can't get into the OF 100. I realize that under $15 a bottle it's a good value, I just can't wrap my taste buds around it. Too much achohol, (don't get me...

    Re: BOTM, 7/05: Old Forester

    My first impression was the same as yours. Although I still think its thin, It does get better the second or third time around. It will probably be retired after this bottle. But I am willing to try...

    I got that as well. Last night, we pulled some mint from the back yard. It's OK for a julep.

    Re: BOTM, 7/05: Old Forester

    Well, I went out to buy a bottle; when I saw it was $12.00 for the 100 proof, I thought it can't be that good. I usually pay $20-40, and I haven't been disappointed yet. I don't mean to sound like a...

    Re: BOTM, 6/05: Knob Creek

    I've got a couple of tidbits to add. First, it's unfortunate there is such a disparity in pricing around the country. I usually feel Colorado is expensive, but on occasion, I've found KC for $17.95...

    Re: BOTM, 6/05: Knob Creek

    Knob Creek is one of my faves, although the Pappy Van Winkle family blindsided me with some truly great stuff. I will pick up a bottle of KB when it goes on sale for $20.00 or less. Retail (750ml)in...
