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

    Just finished off a bottle of EWSB 2001. Honestly, I thought it was one of the best bourbons out there for under $30.

    A little too straightforward, perhaps-- but ample notes of vanilla, clove and...

    Re: BOTM Dec09: Buffalo Trace

    I finally had a dram of this at a local restaurant not long ago. Just one of those things I have considered buying, but got distracted by something else in the store.

    It was a unique experience,...
  3. Re: BOTM 2/10: Ezra Brooks-Ezra B 12 Year Old Single Barrel

    Honestly, I'm very surprised this one hasn't been a BotM before-- For the Money (key phrase), I have a hard time finding something I like better. Used to be 1792, before that went up in price here in...

    Re: Ezra Brooks?

    I don't know where you're from, but in Pennsylvania, a single-barrel spirit aged for 12 years, selling for less than Maker's Mark is a pretty darned good deal...

    You have to account for production...

    Re: BOTM 6/08: Bulleit

    I find it an excellent choice when I want something the exact opposite of Maker's Mark-- something dry, spicy, and oaky. I'll be the first to admit that it is a little rough around the edges. But,...

    Re: BOTM 4/07: William Larue Weller

    I had an '06 WLW. I poured off about half of it to give to a co-worker who is also very much a bourbon drinker. She thought it was excellent. Maybe it gets rougher as you reach more sediment toward...

    Re: BOTM 4/07: William Larue Weller

    Okay, I cracked it open, set some aside for one of my co-workers, and then started drinking. The first few sips were interesting, sweet, and complex. A true hallmark of a good, mature, wheated...

    Re: BOTM 4/07: William Larue Weller

    While it seems that some wheated bourbons have a reputation for being somewhat bland, I would have to say that NONE of those bland ones belong to the Weller family.

    The Sazerac company's ability...

    Poll: Re: Your Favorite Wild Turkey Regardless Of Price

    Hi Evan,

    No, I certainly wouldn't compare Wild Turkey 80 to Old Grand-Dad or Basil Hayden's. The body of the WT80 is heavier, sweeter, and less peppery, not unlike the standard white-label Jim...

    Poll: Re: Your Favorite Wild Turkey Regardless Of Price

    I find Russells' Reserve to be an excellent cigar bourbon. The hint of cedar neatly compliments that "fresh out of the humidor" taste of the Ashton cabinet series.

    As a mixer, however, I like...

    A new fella here, a barkeep

    Hi everyone,

    I'm currently a barkeep at a resort in Central PA (not far from where Michter's old distillery used to be), and have been a bourbon enthusiast for a while.

    I started out with the...
