    Re: Introducing... myself!

    I happen to like BH also, so I guess I'm one of the silent minority. I think it is a rather smooth bourbon. I do agree with some who would rather pay the same for a higher proof bourbon. I rely on...

    Re: What's is your daily Pour?

    Re: What's is your daily Pour?

    I don't really have a daily pour. I alternate between Wellers 12 year, ORVW10, and Weller Centennial.

    Re: BOTM 4/07: William Larue Weller

    This was a great pick for BOTM. I have a bottle of the '05, and have thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm quite partial to wheated bourbons, and this one is one of my favorites. I don't see wheated bourbons...

    Re: greetings...

    I've never tried the Weller 107, but I have tried other Wellers (Special Reserve, 12 Year, Centennial, and W.L. Weller). All of them I liked. For the price, I'd recommend the Weller 12 yr.

    As to...

    Re: BOTM, 2/07: Pappy Van Winkle 20yo

    I'm so glad to see this as the BOTM. I never was much of a bourbon fan until May of 2005, when I made my first visit to Louisville. My colleagues introduced me to PVW 20 year at the Maker's Mark...

    If you are ever in the Concord area, check out Monument Liquor. They have an extensive selection, and reasonable prices. I found their selection much better than the BevMo in PLeasant Hill or...
