    Sticky: Re: BOTM 8/15: Elijah Craig 12 year old

    EC12 is one of my favorites. I find it more consistent than similar aged, somewhat economical bourbons such as ER10 and HMcKBiB10. It's not usually available in my area, so when I'm other places, I...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 6/15: Knob Creek

    I enjoy KC. It's at an excellent proof and has some good spiciness. I've had some bottles that weren't as oakey as I would have liked. I'd like to do a blind tasting between KC and JBBiB to see which...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 5/15: Jim Beam Bottled In Bond

    I still haven't tried this one. I heartily support BiBs though.

    I'm not a Beam hater. I find JBW respectable but not desirable. I think JBB is a bargain, but it can be a bit bland to me. I like...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 3/15: Buffalo Trace

    BT is a solid pour at what is usually a fair price (although its price has crept up over the past two years in these parts). I can pick it up at a CVS, and I can grab store selects at the local...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 1/15: Wild Turkey 101

    Although I don't have a bottle in the cabinet right now, it's one of my go-to bourbons. The nose reminds me of hard candy (like a bourbon flavored Jolly Rancher), and there's usually plenty of spice...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 12/14: Four Roses Single Barrel

    Thanks for sharing your insights. I'm interested in seeing how the lower-rye mash bill tastes like on its own, so I'll probably start with OESK or OESV.

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 12/14: Four Roses Single Barrel

    It's just an outstanding bourbon. That OBSV recipe is a sound mix of fruit, cream, and spice with a high-rye mash bill. I need to try the some of FR LEs and am specifically interested in OESV, OBSK,...
  8. Re: After drinking Makers Mark, Is it worth trying the Jim Beam white label?

    You're better off with BT. It's an outstanding bourbon.
  9. Re: After drinking Makers Mark, Is it worth trying the Jim Beam white label?

    Of those choices, MM is your best option. I also wasn't impressed with Bulleit but might try it again sometime as my palate is more refined now. JBWhite is fine for a mixer though the Beam "funk" has...

    What part of NE Missouri are you from? I ask because I went to undergraduate at Truman in Kirksville.

    Welcome aboard. I also joined not that long ago. This place is great for getting the wisdom of the crowd.

    Good luck to your Gators this season but just not on September 20th.

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 7/14: Very Old Barton 100 proof/BIB

    I did a comparison tasting of EWBiB vs. VOBBiB tonight. I like both. EW had a sweeter, honey-like profile with floral notes. VOB, on the other hand, didn't have as much depth but had a pleasant...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 4/13: Old Grand Dad 114

    I got a bottle tonight and tried it. I'm surprised it's a thin and smooth as it is for being 114 proof. Kind of shocking. I was expecting it to have a big body that's full and chewy like EC12....

    I agree about taking JBW over JD. JD is so dang sweet.

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 6/14: Jim Beam White

    JBW is what it is, a basic mixer that needs more time in the bottle. I'm always a fan of a bargain bourbon, but JBW ain't it. It doesn't compare favorably to Wild Turkey 81 or Very Old Barton 90...
