    Oh, for me it is just a dream. Until I looked at this thread I didn't know this existed.

    Sticky: Re: BOTM: 4/12 Benchmark Old No. 8

    I saw some one liter bottles of this a few minutes ago and decided to buy one. I had never had it so I searched it here and find the BOTM! I haven't posted here in more than a year. I don't find...

    I'm not going to read this thread. All I'm gonna say is I wish I could get some. Sigh.

    Re: Are mini bottles a reliable sample?

    I think a mini is a fairly reliable guide. I don't have a whole lot of experience with trying a mini first then buying a regular bottle. Minis in Sapporo are just too expensive. I would rather buy...

    Re: Are mini bottles a reliable sample?

    Unless the mini had a cork stopper it can't be corked.

    Some bottles of Blantons can taste earthy or musty. Which word you use depends on whether you like it or not. I love it. I have had corked...

    Re: What do you call yourself?

    Really? I usually insist on being call by my first name, Edo. I will accept Edowado. I don't like being called by my wife's last name. Unless I am at the doctor's office or something hardly...

    Bourbon Virtuoso. It says so, right over my picture. A few more posts in Off Topic and I will be able to call myself a Guru! Really, I don't call myself by any label. I just tell people that I...

    I swirl because it is fun!

    Of course, you need a glass that supports swirling.

    It has already been said very well already. You are very lucky. Don't waste this chance. Keep it and drink it.

  10. Re: Need some advice from those "in the know"

    The Bulleit and Woodford have their partisans here but many don't care for them. I think some actively dislike one or the other.

    The Bulleit is a high rye bourbon and that might be what you...

  12. Re: Which Bourbon to Choose after 18 Months?

    I would opt for the Kentucky Spirit, mostly because I have never had it. But I love the premium Wild Turkeys that I have had. Really, any of the bourbons you have on hand would make a fine...

    Re: Fit to be tied....

    Welcome Tim,

    Well, you could go back and buy that bottle of Eagle Rare 10 yo Single Barrel. That is a fine bourbon. Then again, if you can find Elmer T Lee in your area, you might want to...

    Re: BOTM, 1/07: Old Grand Dad BIB

    Several people have mentioned orange peel. I haven't been getting this, or maybe I have, but not enough of it. I had one pour of OGD BIB tonight (Very good) and then followed it with another, but...

    Re: Blue Collar whiskey

    I forgot to let you know what I thought.

    Not bad at all, especially for the price. I still have the open bottle though, so it clearly didn't become a daily pour.

    Re: Help me round out my collection

    I think that both of those ryes are pretty good. I like the WT Rye better of the two. If you like those you can try to find some of the other Ryes that are out there. Some of them are Fantastic!

    Well, it sounds like you have a fairly well rounded out list already. Rye, rye heavy, wheated bourbons. You have bourbons from Beam, Heaven Hill, and Buffalo Trace distilleries. Have you had the...

    Ah, evolution! Survival of the fittest! I do like the bottle a lot. But I, myself, don't buy KC very often. I like Booker's better and if I want to go for a cheaper Beam I go for Jim Beam Black...

    Re: New member - just found the forum

    Thanks Chuck, makes sense.

    I think they have it backwards, at least from a marketing perspective. Shouldn't the higher priced premium brand, Booker's, be the older of the two? Why not bottle...

    I am not quite sure I agree with you Chuck. As foolish of me as that might be since you know so much more about bourbon than I do. But Knob Creek is 9 years old and my current bottle of Bookers is...

    Of course it is true of Stagg. And the William Larue Weller, too. Don't believe everything that advertisers say in their ads.

    Re: BOTM, 1/07: Old Grand Dad BIB

    The other day I noticed that my OGD BIB was getting a little low, so I looked for the back up bottle that I thought I had and found that was the bottle I was drinking from. Yikes! I ordered a...
