    Re: Rum Forum

    If you read back a few pages, I believe I posted at least one set of tasting notes. Bottom line: it's great. I love it. Ideally I'd like to branch out to other non messed with rums, but if I...

    Welcome from another Marylander and peat head! Thomas H. Handy seems to be just about the only BTAC offering that Maryland bourbon enthusiasts won't shank each other over, though that seems to be...

    dagnabbit, I do that at least once a week and then have to edit my posts. Maybe the fact that there are two really good NDPs out there causes cognitive dissonance.

    Re: Rum Forum

    Drinking High West Revelation Rum batch 2 again. Really great stuff. If I thought I'd be going through this at anything other than a snail's pace, I'd definitely buy another.

    Re: Rum Forum

    Just opened Revelation Rum, Batch 2 (99 proof). Poured into a glencairn and sampled after 5 minutes, because it's been a long damn week and I need a drink.

    My local shop got 5 bottles of Smooth Ambler Revelation Rum Batch 2 in and was selling them at MSRP. There was one left when I showed up today, so I bought it. While it's not technically age...

    Re: Rum Forum

    It matters to me because I am curious, having heard rumors that unmessed with rum (while nontraditional taking current standards into account) can be really good, and can taste very different from...

    Re: Rum Forum

    I totally ignored the SA Revelation Rum when it came out. I've been hankering to try a naturally presented rum; might as well support SA.

    Buffalo Trace was one of the bourbons that I "grew up" on. I really enjoyed it, as it seemed to be a bourbon drinker's affordable bourbon, hitting all the right notes but not going too far in any...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 2/15: Stagg Jr.

    I'm in the minority here in that I prefer Stagg Jr. to ECBP. Nothing really explains why, but I definitely enjoyed it for $44.99, enough that I bunkered one. No real expectations, I guess. Price...

    Welcome from another Maryland SBer! EverGladeSlim and I appear to hunt at a lot of the same spots, but I'm also happy to provide recommendations if you're in the DC/Baltimore area.

    I'm a bit late to the game, but I want to add my love for this. It's my favorite readily available bourbon ($30-$40 'round these parts). The first time I bought a bottle I was simultaneously amazed...

    Well, you have my attention. Has any consideration been put into what proof said yearling whiskey might go into the bottle at?

    Just to be contrarian: I really enjoyed my bottle of Stagg Jr from the first pour. It's rough but tasty. My first bottle of ECBP was decent, but struck me as closed off with a lot of the typical...

    Welcome to the board! I assume you've located Bay Ridge Wine and Spirits at this point. If not, give them a look. They occasionally have store selections that are super tasty.

    Hey alemmo, welcome to the board. I'm in the Baltimore/DC area. If you're looking for more Elmer T. Lee, check the Total Wine in Towson. I believe they have some.

    Cheers,
