    Re: What's the point of Jim Beam Black?

    In fact, I recently was turned on to a Jim Beam distiller's series for $19.95. It's a very enjoyable pour for me and one of my favorites in the Beam line-up!

    Re: What's the point of Jim Beam Black?

    You're right on mozilla! There are a lot better pours out there in the $20 range. Years ago when JBW was inexpensive, it wasn't a bad pour for the price - mixed great with coke.

    Re: BOTM 12/08: George T Stagg '08

    Actually, Oscar was right. I said I really didn't like wheaters until I tried a couple at our sampling. I also never tried them "up" - always on the rocks. I could really taste the flavors better...

    Hey Oscar,

    Didn't you and I try this one neat at our get together a few weeks ago? If I remember right, I couldn't believe how great it tasted for such a high proof. Or, was I drinking...

    Re: Cloudy Bourbon Question

    I use a product called Private Reserve Wine Preserver which should be available in most wine stores or large party stores in your area. It's an inert gas that forces out the oxegen in the bottle. I...

    Re: BOTM, 11/08: Four Roses Small Batch

    I tasted all three at the distillery back in August, and the difference was amazing between the three of them. Although I liked the Small batch, I thought the single barrel was much better. I...

    Re: Ohio gal needs advice

    I agree with you to a point. Here's an example. I was at HH Bourbon Heritage center. They had Parker's for $120 a bottle and the tour guide told me it was ONLY available at the distillery. Later...

    Re: Heading to Bardstown - What should I buy?

    Bad Frog Beer was the name of the brew - beer with an attitude! After you visited, the brewery was hit by a tornado (1995?) and was closed for a couple of years. Remodeled and reopened as a brew...

    Re: 1 bourbon a month

    I recently tried Bulleit which I really like - around $24.00 here in Mi. Also, EWSB is a regular pour for me - just under $30 in these parts. A little smoother than the Bulleit, but I like a little...
