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

    It's great stuff but it's dangerous.

    Pretty easy to get on the wrong side of it if you are not careful.

    Re: BOTM 5/11: Four Roses Yellow Label

    My favorite 'cheap' bourbon bar none. I really like it with a few ice cubes in the heat of summer. Very tasty and much more complex than one would think for this price point and proof.

    I'll...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 2/12: Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit

    Yes, it's a shame. It used to be fantastic, now it's just a fancy bottle and a high price tag.

    I love old Turkey. These days its just another distillery.

    Re: BOTM 8/10: Weller Centennial

    This is still my favorite bourbon.

    I'm glad to have a few stashed, but sad about "if I knew then what I knew now".

    Stu, I am very sorry I missed "Understatement Day" which apparently occurred on the Ninth of August in the year of our Lord 2011.

    Re: BOTM 8/11: Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve

    I dont mind standard KC, never buy it for home. I did go through 2 bottles of this and thought they were pretty good.

    Re: Maker's Mark a disappointment.

    This is where I have learned to pull out the "if you can't say anything nice" card.

    So instead of no nice things I'll say buy a bottle of Weller SR and see if you like that. Then you can put the...

    Re: BOTM 5/11: Four Roses Yellow Label

    I like this bottling. Stu has been evangelizing for a 100pf version to Jim Rutledge for awhile and it's good to see others on the same tack. It just makes too much sense for 4Roses not to do it. ...

    Yep, but thats why I love WLW.

    Ahh, if only I had gotten in the game earlier I would have a basement filled with Centennial and ER 10/101.

    Aww you must have been one of those smart kids that never chewed on his pencils.

    The whole point was if I told you what to expect it is more likely you will perceive that. In effect I'm asking you 'what do you think' instead of coloring your perceptions with my observations.

    Hah. Good that you liked it.

    Now let me give you a silly suggestion. Take a few more pulls off that sucker, pour off a bit in a mini bottle and let the big bottle sit for a week or so.

    That's the best tasting notes I've read on ER 10/90.
