    Sticky: Re: BOTM 5/13: Wathen's

    I've still got a couple of the "original" bottlings of this. One was bottled in '98 and the other in '01. I will bring one to Wade's gathering tonight and hopefully people will post notes. I said...

    Re: Hello from Houston, Tx

    I believe Wade will be at the "Go Texas" tasting event at Specs tomorrow. Winston, the Balcones rep and StraightBourbon member will be there too. I may show up.

    We usually get together every...

    Re: BOTM 8/10: Weller Centennial

    This was the bourbon that reinvigorated my interest in finer bourbons in the late '90's. While I moved on to other favorites over time, this one is always a sure fire winner. I need to dig one out...

    Re: Pleased to meet you

    Heck.....I might even trade a Van Blankle for some Laid. But not those older bottlings, something younger.

    Re: What do you call yourself?

    My wife occasionally describes me as a "bourbon nut" to her friends which I think is appropriate. But I think I have also heard the term "whiskey dick" on occasion......it must mean I'm sort of like...

    Re: BOTM 9/08: Festival Bourbons

    I tried both the Willett 7yo sold at Toddy's and the 12yo from Party Source and liked them both. Attention Roger........the 7yo is very similar to the 4yo you and the East Bay Study Group did...

    Re: Father's Day suggestion?

    It's hard to beat Blanton's for this type of gift. It runs less than $50, comes in very impressive packaging, tastes great and perhaps best of all, its widely available. There are better tasting...

    Re: Howdy from Nevada

    If the ORVW 10/107 says "Lawrenceburg", then it is several years old and has SW whiskey inside. If it says "Frankfort"....then it could be SW or Bernheim, but most likely Bernheim. Both are good...

    Re: Sample shot of PVW 23?

    There's also quite a large contingent here that wouldn't put the "regular" Pappy 23 in their top 10 list. As someone already suggested, buy one pour and share with your friend. If you don't care...

    As has been often posted here, Texas has always been the biggest market for Wellers of all varieties. Its not uncommon to see Special Reserve as the well bourbon in many bars here. So I have this...

    Re: BOTM 8/07: Van Winkle 12yo Lot "B"

    I'm planning on seeing Koji this fall on my way to Australia. Hopefully he will share a pour with me too. I think I gave/traded two bottles to him.

    Re: BOTM 8/07: Van Winkle 12yo Lot "B"

    Hey Joe, the "Van Blankle" was bottled in September '04 in Frankfort. It was from a barrel I selected that summer distilled at Old Fitz in March '92. In hindsight, I should have bought several...

    Re: BOTM, 2/07: Pappy Van Winkle 20yo

    I thought I'd go a little "old school" and taste the original Pappy 20 bottled in Lawrenceburg. Not SW whiskey, but a rye whiskey from the Boone distillery. IMHO, you won't confuse the two. This...
