    Re: Affordable Bourbons and Ryes for Beginners

    IMO RR BIB does have many bourbon characteristics while some other ryes in the price range can come off as lighter (JB rye) and fruiter (WT rye -- think green apples) than bourbon. If you like...

    Re: Hello from Los Angeles

    Welcome aboard. I'd be remiss if I didn't also suggest Old Grand Dad BIB or 114. Great stuff -- even without (the low) cost factored in.

    Re: Hi all from Chicago land

    One way to justify it is that one bottle of bourbon has about 15-20 pours in it (depending on big you like your shots).

    A bottle of wine has 5 pours in it, so bourbon has 3 to 4 more pours than a...

    Re: BOTM, 2/08: WL Weller Special Reserve

    So has anyone compared the Old Weller Antique and the WSR? I know I can just buy some and see for myself, but I've currently got a lot of the Antique and don't know that I would prefer a softer,...

    Re: Something Sweet

    Rittenhouse Rye BIB is pretty sweet. I don't find ETL to be as sweet as some of the others that were listed in this thread.

    Re: Old Grand Dad BiB

    Yes it does have the butterscotch. It opens up as such and then shifts gears into a nice zippy rye finish. I find the butterscotch sort of distracting and obvious at times but in the end I find...

    I don't know anything about forcing anyone to do an order but I'd love to get in on a group order of Four Roses (never having tried any!).

    Re: New from Puget Sound

    I see that the 80 proof rittenhouse rye is available at northgate and downtown. Is this the BIB version you speak of or is it the 100 proof version? Is the 80 proof version any good? Mt Vernon is...

    Re: New from Puget Sound

    My smoker is a "Great Outdoors" brand (stainless version). I pasted in a link below but not sure if it will work (I'm not good at this stuff). It runs off propane and thus isn't a true "pit" but I...

    Re: New from Puget Sound

    As a quick aside, one of the best...

    New from Puget Sound

    Hello,

    I've always enjoyed bourbon more than any other spirit but hadn't really experimented much (typically drank Maker's Mark on the rocks or Jim Beam in mixed drinks). After moving to WA...
