    Sticky: Re: BOTM 3/15: Buffalo Trace

    One of my favorites for sure. It shares the same sort of "musty" taste (not unpleasant) that I get from a bottle of Beam I had from the 70's. Maybe not the best adjective, though. Old leather and...

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

    Definitely one of my favorites, but at $40 it's sadly a "special occasion only" type of purchase.

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

    Haven't had any in the last year or so but I remember it being very good. Strangely, I don't remember it having the Beam "funk" that I find in OGD BiB.

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 3/14: Maker's Mark

    This was the first bourbon I liked years ago, but I had a pour last night at Red Lobster and felt it was mostly unremarkable. I don't find it to have much depth of flavor and the finish is rather...

    Re: Hello From Central New York

    I believe it, considering I've never seen a PHC on the shelves anywhere. They are the cheapest merchant of Larceny, which is turning out to be my new favorite.

    Re: Hello From Central New York

    Brian,

    I work in Liverpool, so I've been slowly scouring the nearby stores for good bourbon. So far, Pascales on Erie Blvd has the best selection I've found.

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 9/12: Evan Williams BIB AND Heaven Hill BIB

    Picked up a bottle of EW BiB last year in GA when I was visiting my mother. Don't think I paid any more than $10 and that was a steal! At the suggestion of another member I kept it in the fridge and...

    Are you able to tell us what the off-the-still proof and barrel entry proof are for your bourbons?

    Thanks. I tried your method last night with Makers Mark. I tried it neat, then added a small piece of ice and got some different smells and tastes. Now I just need to work on naming the different...

    Question about nosing

    Hi all. I've got a couple posts on here but still have somewhat of a dilemma. When nosing different whiskeys, I have a hard time differentiating them. They all sorta smell and taste the same to me....

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

    Wow, thats way outta my price range. $30-$40 is my limit right now for any type of whiskey. Unfortunately, I'm running out of good choices in that range.

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

    Not to nitpick, but the title says 2/04, maybe its supposed to be 2/07?

    I wish the PVW products didnt cost so much, otherwise I'd be able to paticipate in this months BOTM. Just out of curiosity,...

    Re: Blue Collar whiskey

    I think Evan Williams black fits the criteria. I just picked up a liter here in NY for $12. The 1.75L is $20 locally.

    Finally got the EC12 I ordered yesterday. Judging by the deep amber/red color I knew it was going to be good before I even tasted any. And boy was I right! Very woody on the tip of the tongue, I...

    Re: 'Nother new guy

    I tried the Rebel Yell again yesterday and found that by adding 3-4 drops of water, the nose revelas more of a caramel aroma than of wood, and the wood/oak taste is more noticable on the tip of the...

    Re: 'Nother new guy

    I'm afraid my palate isnt as sensitive as I'd like it to be, but I guess I'll have to keep tasting and see if that changes!

    I agree on the "only better bourbons" remark. Jim Beam White isnt my...

    Re: 'Nother new guy

    I tried a little bit of the Rebel Yell last night. To me it's better than JBW, which isnt hard to do, but so far I'd say its a step below Makers Mark, even though my experience is limited to only a...

    I'm definitely going to try Old Grand Dad BIB 100 proof. Its $17 at the store just down the road from me.

    Evan Williams black label seems to be a good deal at $12 per 750mL.

    Unfortunately,...

    Re: 'Nother new guy

    Well the EC12 was back-ordered, so I snagged a bottle of Rebel Yell KSBW for $13, and the owner also threw in a free 50ml nip of Evan Williams Single Barrel!

    I had him look up some prices for Van...

    The only problem with finding any good bourbon nearby, is that the liquor stores have a somewhat limited selection. I had to special order the EC12, and...
