    Sticky: Re: BOTM 9/13: 1792 Ridgemont Reserve

    I am late to this, but 1792 has to be a high rye mashbill, not to sure on it being high malt. I am told this stuff is 60 corn, 30 rye, 10 malt. It is the mashbill they used to use for straight...

    Re: How to get a clean pour?

    that is what you call alcohol abuse. Worlds worst for doing what you are talking about is georgia moon in the jar. You have to sip the first inch or so out of the jar, then it will pour clean.

    Re: Cloudy Bourbon

    I find that the best way to really get a sense for how good bourbon is, is to leave it in a cup with a few drops left overnight. Most of the time if it smells a little funky, it is better stuff....

    Re: Cloudy Bourbon

    Oxidation probably. Good whiskey will do it. I consider it a good way to tell a whiskeys quality. I freqently take barrel samples and put them in a solo cup maybe an 1/8 inch deep. Leave it out in my...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM: 4/12 Benchmark Old No. 8

    I bought some a while back and thought it was a great value pour, but hell, I was raised on cheap bourbon. Is this the same mashbill as AA?

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 1/12: Mellow Corn BIB

    It is good, if you like old fashioned good white, corn whiskey. Even though we make a lot of corn and I like our corn, and it tastes good, I still like to get a jar of GM from time to time. And in...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 1/12: Mellow Corn BIB

    JW corn, I am pretty sure is a variation of the HH corn line. It must be younger than MC. It does taste lighter, very scotch like I though. The other label is dixie dew. Only available in Alabama....

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 1/12: Mellow Corn BIB

    One of my favorites, and when I do drink daily now, dr's orders, I have a pour of mellow corn. Well made stuff. The smell of it is exactly what a corn fermenter smells like at it's peak of...

    Re: RE-introduction

    Thanks to a fellow member i have a sample of Fairfax county and it is indeed big bodied whiskey. Very good stuff. I would imagine a low still and barrel proof.

    Re: RE-introduction

    I am speculating here, but they probably used enough backset to get the ph just right in the cooker. Which would not have been much. And left a small amount of mash in the fermenter for the next...

    Re: New from West Virginia

    I have a bottle of John's bourbon. And it is a good young bourbon. A lot of mirco distilled bourbon is hard to tell it is bourbon. This is spot on.

    Re: BOTM 7/11: Maker's 46
