    Re: BOTM, 1/09: Weller Antique

    This is, imo, the best of the regular Weller line, I did enjoy them but none of the others I've tried come close, and one of the best bourbons I've ever had. When this is in stock I generally don't...

    Re: BOTM 12/08: George T Stagg '08

    This was a refreshing throwback to the fall '05, parts of the nose and taste definitely remind me of that one. Good thing, I think I liked fall '05 the best but this is a close second!

    Re: love reading the reviews

    I used to feel the same way but then one day I just didn't feel like ordering a glass of straight bourbon so I got a Manhattan instead, just for the hell of it (Well, actually it's probably because I...

    Re: Sample shot of PVW 23?

    If PVW23 is a bourbon you want to try then I don't think you're going to find a more inexpensive way to do it and if you do it won't be by much. Go for it, imo it's worth it.

    Re: unopened 1912 Old Crow

    Wow, I'd swear I saw that exact same bottle (the extensive damage to the tax strip and labels is identical) listed by a different seller over the summer, it closed at ~$400.

    Re: unopened 1912 Old Crow

    Yep, it's my understanding that so long as it hasn't been contaminated by something, not likely if it's sealed, all you have to worry about is it not tasting good. Assuming you have it and you want...

    Re: Cold Bourbon

    I only really enjoy my bourbon at room temperature or warmer. I've added ice and didn't like it. In the winter if I am outside with my glass for too long and the bourbon gets chilled it won't taste...

    Re: BOTM 4/07: William Larue Weller

    Iíve heard others say that the char can be rough on the throat but this has not been my experience. I find that the char overpowers the taste of the bourbon itself and usually run the last pour in...

    Re: What's is your daily Pour?

    My daily pour keeps on changing, originally it was WT101 but then I switched to FC103 for a long time. I'd say my daily pour is now Weller Antique 107 because that it what I have been buying ever...

    Re: OPVW 23 special fine today!!!

    I believe so, and I think the whiskey is from a mystery source to boot.



    I think you mean Old Rip Van Winkle, which is another line from the company that bottles Pappy Van Winkle. The PVW15...

    Re: OPVW 23 special fine today!!!

    You should hold the bottle up to the light and see if the glass is green, although PVW23 is always a good find this bottle may be a better find than you think. Welcome to the board.

    Poll: Re: Your Favorite Wild Turkey Regardless Of Price

    It was a tough call between the RB and the 101 but the 101 won my vote. If RR101 was on there this wouldn't have been a tough decision at all.
