    Re: Bourbon Making Advice

    The best advice dosn't center around taste profiles and mashbills.

    Low proof off the still

    low barrel entry proof

    And 94 -100+ bottling proof.

    What we don't want is another micro that...
  2. Re: I just dumped a bottle of EC12 down the drain

    I think Scotch folks generally gravitate to the drier profile.

    I like EW SB well enough and I like 4R SB once in a while. Perhaps becoming a fan of the Wellers shifted my preferences so that EC...
  3. Re: I just dumped a bottle of EC12 down the drain

    Some years back I qwit buying EC 12 because I just wasn't enjoying it anymore...... or I kept getting off bottles.

    A lot of folks here love EC 12 but I just don't get it. If it ain't your cup of...

    Are you being facetious?

    Price is being correlated with quality.

    Re: Top Shelf Chick

    Not a fan of Woodford Reserve nor Fighting Cock. But I'd choose FC over Woodford even if WR was the same price as FC.

    Re: BOTM 9/10: Booker's

    It is non chill-filtered but it undoubtedly is filtered through a fine wire mesh to catch pieces of the barrel char. Beam's filter must be a tighter mesh than BT's. There's a lot of fine particulate...

    Sticky: Re: How To Get Started.

    I agree with that sentiment. Starting too low on the shelf could be as counterproductive as trying to appreciate extra aged or over-proof bottlings right out of the gate.

    I'd start a neophyte out...

    Welcom Ultra,

    You've got one hell of a selection in your home bar. Awesome! The only thing I see missing is Baby Saz.

    Re: another new member from Chitown

    I'm surprised you found Ridgmont Reserve to burn 'going down', after you added water.

    What is your impression of Maker's Mark? How much water did you add?

    It might be worth pointing out that Maker's Mark was only recently, a couple or so years ago, acquired by Beam. It isn't like there is a familial taste relationship between the two from the yeast,...
