    Sticky: Re: BOTM 2/14: Smooth Ambler Old Scout

    I think this was a store selected barrel. They had a good number on the shelf. Who knows how long they will last. Still, that's good advice.

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 2/14: Smooth Ambler Old Scout

    I have been on the look out since all the favorable comments here. Today I found a bottle of 8 year old 108.4 proof bourbon. I really like it a lot. I may go back and buy another. I like it more...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 4/14: Weller Special Reserve

    I guess I'm in the camp that says there's nothing wrong with WSR, but I much prefer OWA or W 12. I could easily go buy WSR locally at many stores. The others, I haven't seen for a long time. I'm...

    Re: Hi from Nashville!! And newbie question...

    Welcome Wes, I often add a little ice, so I don't think there's anything wrong with that. As to appreciating nuances and complexities of whiskies, these are more associated with age and or higher...

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

    I used to say Makers was too expensive too. Back a few years ago, OWA had a 7 year age statement, 107 proof, a couple bucks cheaper than MM, and not too hard to find. I'm playing devil's advocate. ...

    With no competition from Weller OWA or Weller 12 anymore, Makers starts to look pretty good. I actually picked up a bottle not too long ago. It was the first in years. I ended up liking it quite a...

    Welcome Perry, I'm told there are a number of nice places to shop by you, more than I have here on the South side. People on this site are very friendly.

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 12/13: J.W. Dant BIB

    I think it has to do with HH having rickhouses in different locations, different levels in the same rickhouse, and barrel selection. Some BIBs are older too, such as HH 6 year, and McKenna (10...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 12/13: J.W. Dant BIB

    This is one that got me interested in bourbon. Back in the 1990s, I think the Dant I was getting must have been some "glut" whiskey. It really seemed older than four years old. Joe's description...

    Amnesiac, I think there are actually multiple questions here. If you look at the Whiskey Tree thread in General Bourbon Forum, you can find some sources of NDPs. Also, there are other threads about...

    Re: Dating two old bottles.....

    Do the tax strips on the top have any dates? Are the bottles 4/5 quarts or 750ml? Is there a government warning or UPC code? I'd look on the bottom of the bottle too.

    I'm a HH fan, and this is one of my favorites. To me it's like the EWSB in many ways, except better because this is 100 proof. If anyone knows where to find this around Indy, please PM me. I have...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 9/13: 1792 Ridgemont Reserve

    1792 is something I've tried several times. To me it had a taste of leather, and was rather dry and woody. It seemed like a quality whiskey, just not my thing. By the way, I'm a big fan of VOB.

    Re: So my brother-in-law drinks moonshine ....

    I agree, Mellow Corn might be a nice place to start. Really anything that says "bottled in bond" on the label I recommend. I wouldn't normally suggest this, but Rebel Yell doesn't seem to get much...

    Re: New from Decatur, GA

    Welcome Renegator, Don't ignore some of the decent value pours out there. This isn't Scotch. One of the beauties of Bourbon is that you don't have to spend a lot to taste some real quality whiskey.

    I thought the Wathen's was pretty decent bourbon. I just find that in it's price range ($30+ around here) there are many good bourbons or ryes nowadays.

    I like this as much or more than Bulleit Rye, and it's $5 less. I've noticed that Willett, Bulleit, and now Dickel put Lawrenceburg, IN on the label of the ryes. No smoke, no mirrors, no monkey...
