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

    I've had both and lean toward JBBIB even at current prices. JBBIB is more balanced to me while Kirkland is heavier on the sweet, peanut butter candy flavor. Both are good, but BIB gets the repeat...

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

    This is the only one of the JB namesake bourbons that I've enjoyed. It has a bold, peppery quality that I also get in the OGD line and a nice, silky mouthfeel. On paper, this should just be 100-proof...

    Re: Hello from Tokyo

    Welcome! Interesting that you're seeing less at your shop given that several here have expressed concern that our "good stuff" is being shipped abroad. I look forward to your reports on the state of...

    Re: Hello from Bloomington, IN

    From what I've heard, finding a store in Indy that is NOT a Big Red is getting harder. Definitely check around. There were a couple of other stores I would frequent there with good selections AND...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 4/15: George Dickel No. 12

    Not an everyday pour for me but when the mood strikes nothing else will do. I definitely get the vitamin taste but it's a welcome change of pace for me. It's a bit diminished in the 9yr but...

    Re: traveling to AZ in a few days

    Nothing special for selection. You'll be able to see just about everything available to us at any of the BevMo or Total Wine locations. Tops in Tempe has a good selection as well. This assumes...

    Re: Hello from Indy

    As a former Indy contingent member, I can say you're in for some great times with that group. Welcome aboard!
  10. Re: Elijah Craig Private Selection Barrels???

    Had a PS EC12 once that was a delicious vanilla bomb. The standard is great as well. I'd say get one of each and have fun deciding which you prefer.

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 11/14: Maker's Mark Cask Strength

    I revisited this recently and have come to the conclusion that I'm just not a MM fan. It's not bad, but it doesn't bring anything new to the table like ECBP does. It's just more MM, which is great if...

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

    The bottling I have the most experience with is the "Old No. 8 Brand" and it is very good. It's solid, flavorful whiskey that proudly proclaims, "I AM BOURBON," without any bells or whistles. It's...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 11/14: Maker's Mark Cask Strength

    Well, they've repeatedly stated that MM is perfect just the way it is and present older MM in the distillery tastings as whiskey gone bad. That coupled with the demands on their current stocks keeps...

    Had my first pour of this Saturday night and enjoyed it quite a bit. As expected, the flavor was bolder than standard MM but also seemed to round out what is lacking in their regular whiskey and is...

    I drank a fair amount of JBW when my whiskey only went in Coke. Switched to EWB when I started drinking whiskey on the rocks. I've found that I just don't care for the JB namesake bourbons whereas I...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 5/14: Woodford Reserve

    It's not bad, just over priced. I have a dusty bottle of VG that tastes similar to me but given that it was less than half the price of WR it's much more enjoyable! I did pick up a bottle of WRDO...

    After tasting standard MM SBS with their white dog at the distillery, I came to the conclusion that they're bottling it too young. Too much of the white dog character remains in the finished product....

    Totally solid. I picked up a bottle of this to stash at my in-laws' a couple of years ago to drink since I knew they'd go for others. It's liquid candy and drinkable to a fault. I think it's still...

    I have a bottle of the 7yr rye that is very good. The only one of their bourbons I've seen here is the 7yr and I intend to give it a whirl unless I happen to find one of the older bottles. I've been...

    I think they make a mistake of serving new make with their standard at the distillery. It makes the need for more age apparent as the flavors are too similar when they should be night and day.

    Thanks for posting that link. I'm inevitably asked by SB members about my handle after I've had a few drinks. That does a much better job of explaining!

    A late welcome to you, Keith! I'm afraid this place will test the limits of what you consider "moderation." :grin:
    Glad to have you join us!
