    Re: Is this true?

    Proof is determined by alcohol per volume represented in a percentage.

    So, if you have a bottle that is 50% alcohol...then it is 100 proof. 40% alcohol is 80 proof.

    Re: Is this true?

    Beam has two different distilleries producing their ryed distillate. Even if they tried to....they would have a hardtime producing the same tasting juice from both distilleries. It just isn't that...

    Re: Hello From Virginia Beach

    I don't find that Oak by itself adds enough flavor to the smoke. The Pecan and Oak pair are probably my most usual smoking woods.

    BBQing rocks!

    Re: Hello From Virginia Beach

    Welcome to the board, Jon.

    What kind of wood do y'all use to smoke with? BBQ is real big in Texas. I prefer a mix of Pecan, Hickory, Oak and a touch of Mesquite.

    Hope to see you posting...

    Re: "Old Bourbon?"

    If I am guessing correctly...it probably says Olde Bourbon and is a Dant product. If there is a tax strip...buy a bottle. It is better than you will expect.

    And don't let this group of roudys...

    Welcome to the site. NC is a beautiful state.

    Can't say I am a big fan of your choices. The only one I would probably purchase would be the ETL. The other can be improved upon in my book. ...

    I would fear that, if I lived that close to bourbon country...the distillers would all be sick of seeing me at their doors everyday.

    Re: Wishing I never left Heaven Hill

    You got me on that one. I have only found it onetime. I doubt HH changes too much...since they already have so many labels. I would say they probably have one in every even year...4, 6, 8, 10 for...

    I don't think anyone will argue that the 10yr is better than the 6mix.

    What I am saying is that your taste will change...and if they don't...maybe one of your friends will enjoy it more than you...

    Re: Wishing I never left Heaven Hill

    Hold on to that bottle. Let it sit on your bar for a few months...and then try it again. I imagine that your opinion might change by that time.

    In the meantime...find yourself a few of HH's...

    Re: Old Grand Dad BiB

    Tim, the Virgin you had was probably made at Meadowlawn...the current version is a HH distillate. For $12 a 750ml, it is hard to beat. I won't say that it is some of HH finer juice, but...
