    Re: BOTM 2/11: Old Rip Van Winkle 10 yr 107 proof

    I agree completely. In fact, I've never been as enthusiastic as others are about this expression -- but it seems like the second half of the bottle is always MUCH better than the first . . . I'm...

    Re: BOTM 9/10: Booker's

    I've had Booker's that I thought was delicious and thoroughly enjoyable and then I've had the liquid fire on other occasions. In my experience these differ greatly from barrel to barrel, thus...

    Re: BOTM 7/10: Rittenhouse Rye BIB

    Ummmmm . . . I guess I fall in the middle, too . . . since there aren't many rye options (especially up here) I always like to have some Ritt BIB stashed when I can find it, but I like both the WT...

    Re: BOTM 6/10: Fighting Cock

    The only bottle of this I ever got was in CT . . . I can't for the life of me remember where, though . . . somewhere north of Waterbury, I think, but I'm only guessing. I know I ate at a great...

    Re: BOTM 6/10: Fighting Cock

    I've only had one bottle of FC in my time, but I enjoyed it quite a bit, and to reiterate, especially for the $16 I paid.

    I can't get it around here or I'd probably have some around -- I liken it...

    Re: BOTM 1/10 Weller 12 Year Old

    I have to agree that the Binny's Weller 12 is, simply put, one of the finest bourbons I have ever tasted at any price or age.

    Weller 12 can be found in Massachusetts intermittently for between...

    Re: BOTM 3/10: Evan Williams Black Label 86 proof

    I think this stuff is pretty "meh". I would rather spend an extra $5 and get something I really like. I did the same side-by-side as Hansell (with a friend) of the EWB & the new Old Crow Reserve. ...

    Re: BOTM 5/10 Ancient Age

    I have only had the AA BIB which I think is a fine whiskey for the money, but unremarkable . . . it IS cool to have a BIB from BT, though.

    Although I have only seen it here once, AA is listed as...

    To make this thread slightly more palateable:

    Re: New member from Des Moines, Iowa

    Bourbons use at least 51% in the mashbill by law and then a little barley and what is called a "flavor grain", which is typically rye or, less commonly, wheat. When Maker's started in the 50's, the...

    Re: New member from Des Moines, Iowa

    Most likely because you said you enjoy Maker's which is a wheated bourbon and Weller Antique is also a wheated bourbon . . . he's making a recommendation based on what he knows of your taste.

    Re: New member from Des Moines, Iowa

    What is ironic (and quite comical, though you couldn't have known) is that you just asked perhaps the biggest Wild Turkey fan on the site if his drink of choice was any good.

    Re: Help a newb out...

    Yeah, what Ben said. Personally, I don't care for the ORVW 10/107 . . . it's good, but uninteresting, and at $40 I expect more . . . also, I've heard tell that a lot of the ORVW juice is from...

    Ok, I'll play by the rules :grin:

    2. Old Weller Antique (the best value wheater out there)
    3. Wild Turkey 101 (not as good as...

    Re: BOTM 1/10 Weller 12 Year Old

    I've only had one bottle of Weller 12, but it was fantastic . . . I have another regular bottle and two Binny's bottles in the bunker.

    I thought it was very close to on par with either the Lot...
