    Re: Hello from CHicago NW Burbs

    Some might say that meeting up with Thad in a liquor store aisle is dangerous business, as it could cause your wallet to deflate very rapidly, resulting in a case of severely impaired equilibrium...

    Sticky: BOTM 4/13: Old Grand Dad 114

    Strange though, about its limited appeal. 114 seems to fly under the radar here as well as near as I can tell. But for the fact that it's regularly praised here on SB, causing many to buy it who...

    Re: Hello from France.

    By the way, that was supposed to read "bonne chance" but my iPhone changed it to "bone." Strange!

    Well Joe, as your younger, more handsome (?) brother I felt it my obligation to post the picture, but I feel your pain. I truly love AA BIB and will no doubt never see another one in the wild but at...

    Sticky: BOTM 6/15: Knob Creek

    I concur completely. Though not a big fan of the 80 proof Basil Hayden, I love the rest of the small batch line and am always pleased when someone offers me a pour or gifts me a bottle.

    Try Sam's Club or Costco the next time you're on the hunt for regular KC. Both have it for $26.

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 6/15: Knob Creek

    Like Makers Mark, I think Knob Creek suffers (at least in the minds of hard-core bourbon fans like us) from being "common," for lack of a better word. It is readily available in most major markets...

    Ol' Joe said pretty much what I wanted to say. GD #12 has subtle charms that appeal to me when I'm looking for something different as well. Light and easy, this whiskey still delivers enough flavor...

    Re: Hello! From east end of Long Island NY

    If I make it to Long Island this summer to see my brother and cousins, I would be happy to "mule" anything you want that's available at Binny's which is Chicagoland's biggest liquor store chain.

    Yes. That's a steep price at $100 when we get it for less than half that. You need an American mule to bring you some goodies! The Old Grand Dad 114 that was mentioned is also excellent and no doubt...
