    Sticky: Re: BOTM 8/15: Elijah Craig 12 year old

    That's a good problem to have TT! The 21 and 23 were the only LE's to actually hang around for more than two seconds last year. I passed on the 23 at least 3-4 times.

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 8/15: Elijah Craig 12 year old

    Agreed! The 12 year expression is perhaps in my top three regularly available bourbons. The 21 year, however, was darn near undrinkable to me. I can't even imagine what the 23 tastes like. I'm...

    Well said. I don't have the breadth of experience as you, but I find the same qualities in this whiskey that you describe. Though I didn't like it at first, I adjusted to it and *poof* just like...

    Well shoot if Paddy didn't take the words out of my mouth. I'm thinking that if we looked at each others bunkers we'd find that we have darn near the same whiskey stashed away.

    EC12 is one that I...

    The same place has Ancient Age Barrel 107 which I like a lot so I'm guessing I'll like this one too.

    Hmmm......I know of a local bar that has this in their basement. I'm gonna have to ask them to bring it up to the bar and open it.

    I've never been able to determine what exactly the "funk" is in Beam, but I've had enough of their product range to understand how the "house style" tastes, so to speak. I follow what kc is saying...

    A fitting BOTM to mark this point in SB history. Good idea Joe.

    I don't yet have a lot to say about this one. My first few tastes of it were in bars and I never thought much of it so I never...

    We don't get AAA10 out here so I vat with either BT or OC8. Both work splendidly for the same reasons that yours does.

    Good thing for you, you still live close to the source. I used to live in Cincinnati - not far from you. Now I live in Washington State. Wish I had the selection I used to have!
