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

    I think most of you that hate Beam products hate them, because you are supposed to hate them. There is no way any of you should have any problem at all with JBW on the rocks tasted blind..neat..maybe...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 3/14: Maker's Mark

    Yes it is...but it is a far superior product to the Weller Special Reserve they are pushing at 5 years (at best) now. I think if you did a blind taste test of current (as of in the last 6 months) WSR...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 4/14: Weller Special Reserve

    I'd have to disagree. If we are talking NAS WSR available now and not the 7 year or even the very first NAS stuff they produced, then Maker's is far better than current WSR. Maker's compared to...

    It is my go to in restaurants. Goes well with a lot of food. I have MM46 a lot at home. I think if they aged it 10-12 years and bottled it at 100 proof it would blow away anything else available...

    Re: Hello from Houston

    Welcome Alex! I pretty much go to Spec's on default. Nice to know we have some choices in our part of town. I have seen the store as I live in the Bay Area. I will certainly stop by when I drink up...

    I have never been fortunate enough to have a dusty Dant, but I think the current Dant BIB is good stuff for the price.

    I would hold your enthusiasm myself (I am). I loved the old stuff also but I think it is a sure bet the new stuff will be younger.

    Yeah, I am afraid you are right. I think when/if it comes back it will be much younger they way the 101 bourbon has become. I thought maybe my tastes had changed so I tried another new WT 101...

    That is an affirmative. It will sneak up on you if you aren't careful! I find Knob Creek Single Barrel that way as well. It is deliciously smoky, sweet and nutty yet 120 proof..

    It would not include Maker's, but frankly if any most of the Beam hater's had never tasted glut-era Beam or ND OGD they would not even mention Beam funk. OGD 114 is very good, just buy it, and enjoy...

    It took me a while to grow to like it as I am partial to wheaters as well (obviously from my handle)..but I really, really love the stuff. I try to always have it around along with Weller 12 or MM 46.

    Re: Greetings from Balcones Distillery

    Sorry I could not make it as I was out of town. I read where the single malt won an award in a blind tasting against some Scotch single malts..pretty cool.

    Howdy, fellow Texan! Not to get off topic, but there are a ton of non-peated Scotches. I'd bet there are a few you would like..maybe not though. I used to be all Scotch and have gradually moved to...
