    Re: New from Southwest Florida

    This is so true, I'd like to think that a good butcher shop could really clean up around town, but then everyone's a cheap ass that goes to WalMart or some other big store and hoses the little guy.

    Re: Jim Beam White vs Black vs Jack Daniels

    Hmm, weird. Is it an "Export Only" type of bottling?

    Hey, welcome aboard. So much info here. My bit of advice, taken from someone else, wait to dig into the pricey stuff until you have a decent appreciation for it.

    Re: Jim Beam White vs Black vs Jack Daniels

    Haven't been to an actual liquor store yet, but this is not readily available in liquor departments in grocery stores.

    I'd like to try it out, as it sounds like a good deal.

    Re: Jim Beam White vs Black vs Jack Daniels

    I agree, great places to jump to.

    Just semantics, I guess. I just wouldn't call Buffalo Trace "starter" bourbon.

    I'd call it a good one to start with, after you are already hooked. :)

    Re: Jim Beam White vs Black vs Jack Daniels

    Buffalo Trace is a "starter" bourbon?

    Your opinion, of course, and I see what you could mean as far as flavor, but I bet I only know 5 other people that even know what the heck Buffalo Trace is...

    Re: Hi, new to bourbon

    Brisko - Not saying there aren't good buys out there for Scotch, saying that over all, they seem to be a little overpriced. Of course, I am not a huge fan, either, so take that for what it's worth.

    Re: Hi, new to bourbon

    Yeah, you don't get much more "non-neutral" for scotch than Laphroaig.

    It tastes like chewing on a piece of burnt charcoal. I actually like it (in small doses) but it is very "aquired".

    Not...

    Hey, welcome to the club. Luckily, I have 25 years to tie your on the age, so hopefully I will REALLY know a lot about bourbon by then.

    Probably not, though.

    Anyway, I also really enjoy...

    Just out of curiousity, are you born and raised in Japan, or do you just live there now?

    Interesting info you have there, and welcome to Straight Bourbon. :)

    Must have been a bottle of that "Pappy Van Stankle" I was reading about in a thread a few days back.

    Something like that, anyway.

    Re: Hallo from Germany

    From what I was told right off the bat, and my experiences, the WT 101 is a ryed whiskey, while MM is a wheater. It may be that you prefer the more subtle wheated burbons. I like them all,...

    Had a glass of MM last night, and one of WT 101 to follow. Both were great. Not sure I liked either "better", both had nice complex tastes.

    The WT was, however, quite a bit more potent, which I...
