  1. Sticky: Re: BOTM 9/14: Elijah Craig Barrel Proof

    the Fox agrees with fishnbowljoe....its just not my cup 'o tea (or, bourbon). Ive only had batch two, though it left such a negative impression on me that Ive not bothered to even try to look for any...

    one of my buddies likes scotches, and I thought ryes might do it for him too, since hes not really a fan of bourbon profiles. I got him a Dickel Rye, and he actually liked it. That, and Booker's. go...

    exactly. when a bunch of my classmates went out to party after graduation, we went to where one of the guys bartended. Since 90% of the class were females, there was a lot of jello shots and pretty...

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

    ive got no problems with Beam stuff, provided it is aged and proofed properly. I find that it has to be over 100 proof and over 7 years old to be good, and then it's great. There's something about...
  6. Sticky: Re: BOTM 10/13: Henry McKenna Single Barrel BIB

    anyone else find it very similar in profile to WT101 (recent releases), only with a better and longer lasting finish than the WT?

    i meant store selected on 3-19-14, not 13....whoops
  8. Re: After drinking Makers Mark, Is it worth trying the Jim Beam white label?

    I recommend you pick one up if you can. It's only not a bourbon because Dickel wants to be different from the crowd and call it TN Whisky. Its a significantly different taste than what you know as...
  9. Sticky: Re: BOTM 10/13: Henry McKenna Single Barrel BIB

    enjoying a fresh pour from a bottle gifted to me last month. Very, very nice. I did a SBS with it and HH6BIB white label, and while you can definitely tell the strong family resemblance, the McK is a...

    havent had it in a while.....from what I remember, I enjoyed the nose, mouthfeel, and taste, but the aftertaste fell short far too quickly....which left you with a dilemma: stop drinking it and move...

    way to self-sacrifice for the sake of the team, squire....

    I gotta say, as much as I tout Booker's, KC, and KCSB, I do NOT enjoy sub 100 proof Beam stuff. I cant say I call it a 'funk', but there...

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

    Im always amazed that age and selection are all that differentiates this from Bookers. Beam should stick to 100+ proof, by my tastes.
  13. Re: BOTM 3/10: Evan Williams Black Label 86 proof

    next year, you should definitely get him an EWBIB, 100 proof for his 100 years.

    i'll buy one when i see it on the shelf. guy here told me where i can find some, now I just gotta find time to get to it. hopefully it leans more toward the WT101 profile than the FRSB...
  15. Re: [novice] Collecting.. Hoarding.. Prepping? / Lower Shelves

    good luck. I never hoarded or collected anything before I got into this. Now, I find it nearly irresistible to not do so. Some guys on here just like to have their own virtual bar, where they can...
