    Sticky: Re: BOTM 5/14: Woodford Reserve

    It's not that the bourbon tasted like urine, it's really more of a note like a stick of juicy fruit gum that has been soaked in a glass of urine.

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 5/14: Woodford Reserve

    I used to think WR got an undeservedly bad rep on this board. Then I tasted it blind after not having had it for quite awhile. It really hit me badly in the blind tasting session, with a nose of...

    Re: New guy from Chicagoland!

    And I'm just glad I left early.

    Welcome to tha club Bris!
  4. Re: newbie from Chicago....first dusty hunt success

    Welcome Dice. That's a great find - a style of rye that is long gone from the American whiskey landscape. I would suggest becoming more acquainted with the styles of rye that are produced today...

    Re: Greetings from Chicagoland

    Every year is a great year for bourbon lovers! It's just that more and more people are catching on to that fact ;)

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 11/13: Pappy 15

    I have a bottle from '09 open at the moment. I opened it on the 4th of July (because I'm a TRUE AMERICAN@!!@) and mostly lay off of it until I have company over. It's been a few years since I opened...

    Sticky: BOTM 6/13: Wild Turkey Rye 101

    Grab them. The Campari Group has made it all too clear that they specialize in removing their good whiskey from the market and replacing it with younger and/or more expensive juice that doesn't taste...

    Re: Hello from Chicago

    Welcome Brett. I'm always looking for an excuse to make it over to Delilah's, and you have provided me one! That beer tasting and HW night sound great. If I can make it over, I'll be sure to...
  9. Sticky: Re: BOTM: 6/12 Colonel E.H. Taylor, Jr. Warehouse C Tornado Surviving Bourbon

    I emptied my bottle a month or two ago, but I have seen fit to grab another one to enjoy at a later time. I wrote up some tasting notes at the time, but two things stick out for me: 1) the sooty...

    Re: New from IL

    I believe DN originally sourced its juice from SW. They're still using the old labels that say DSP-16 even though it hasn't been SW juice for a while.

    Sticky: Re: BOTM: 5/12 Evan Williams Single Barrel

    I agree with you 100% there. The EC12 I'm drinking right now beats out all 3 EWSB vintages I've had: '99, '00, '01.

    The '00 is my favorite, especially Binny's barrels, but Binny's '01 is also...

    Re: New from IL

    I was actually in St. Louis in early March and visited that shop (very close to the Ritz right?). I took home a Weller SR 7/90 old label from there for about $20, and I'm pretty sure I left at least...

    Re: New from IL

    Great intro, Alex, you sound like a very thoughtful drinker. The best advice I have for people who can't get past the burn of a good bourbon neat is to tell them to take a small sip, hold it in their...

    Re: Top Shelf Chick

    My experience tells me otherwise. I miss drinking my whiskey out of a nice heavy-based rocks glass, but since trying from a glencairn, I can't go back. I get so much more subtlety from my whiskey...

    Re: Top Shelf Chick

    I agree on not caring for the Angels Envy, but don't let that stop you from picking up some of the Parker's Heritage Cognac stuff. I think it may just be my 2011 bourbon of the year...

    I've never...

    Re: Botm 12/11: Colonel E.H. Taylor New Release

    I liked the first release enough to buy another bottle, even though I resented have to put down $75 for it. No heat for a 100 proofer, but I recall really, really mellow cinnamon-vanilla notes. I...
