    Re: walkers deluxe

    I know there's liquor store in Gloucester County, New Jersey, right off of 295, that had Walker's Deluxe at least as of about six months ago, last time I passed through.

    It's a pretty good...

    Re: BOTM, 5/08: Ten High

    I have an old uncracked bottle of this, from about 1990 with a faux tax stamp. Time to unscrew and savor!

    I wish I had some other open Barton product to compare it with. I just buried a soldier...

    Re: I like WT 101, need more suggestions

    My two favorite bourbons have long been WT 101 and Old Forester, so I echo those who recommend you try Brown Forman's "other" whiskey. Woodford Reserve is a close cousin, and I've also been...

    Re: Hi. Introducing myself. Tell me what to buy!

    All the Turkeys bear a family resemblance, so I can't say springing the big bucks for the Kentucky Spirit is really that good an idea. You just may not like it. But it sure is marvelous...

    Re: Hi. Introducing myself. Tell me what to buy!

    Hi V Smoothe and welcome to the board!

    I'd spend that $200 on the products of two distillers that aren't on your shelf - Wild Turkey and Brown-Forman. Definitely spring for the pricey...

    Re: What's is your daily Pour?

    I like to keep a lot of bottles open but the bottles that are always returned to are Dickel No. 12, Old Forester BIB and Wild Turkey 101/RR101.

    If only I could find it in South Jersey, ...

    Re: BOTM, 3/07: Old Pogue

    I've had a single bottle of Old Pogue, I'm slowly going through it.

    I like Old Pogue - it tastes different. I'd describe it as having a grassiness, even a lemony-ness, to the first "hit" of the...

    But is there any reason to expect a deterioration, or even a difference, in the taste? How can that difference in taste be described? Other than the fact that it misses by a technicality the...

    Re: If you only had three..

    For me it would be these three distilleries' distinct products:

    Wild Turkey's the best bourbon, and Kentucky Spirit is Jimmy Russell's pick of a honey...

    Re: "Old" Old Forrester 100?

    Old Forester is a regular pour for me, although the 100 proof expression is next to impossible to find in these parts. Indeed, the only 100 proof OF I've ever found in South Jersey is from a...

    Re: just one bottle?

    With the discontinuation of WTRR101, which has been my favorite pour, I'd go with Old Forester BIB. If I can cheat and also pick up a bottle of Tennesee whiskey, put me down as well for a...

    Re: BOTM, 1/07: Old Grand Dad BIB

    I don't have a bottle of the BIB at the moment but my mental recollection of it's taste is exactly what TNBourbon described - orange peel.

    Re: Help me round out my collection

    Besides the WT expressions, I'd recommend a Dickel No. 12 and an Old Forester Signature (that's their new name for their 100 proof expression). That'll give you the best Tenessee whiskey and Brown...

    I agree - get the bottles that interest you. Anything I've never tried that's bottled in bond would certainly interest me. I have, in fact, the Dant BIB you found and can confirm that it's...

    Marketing, indeed. Of course, I've a sucker for good Old Forester so I can't say for a moment that I didn't enjoy the contents of that nutty bottle!

    A bottle for me has got to be comfortable to hold - heck, when the proper glassware just ain't around I've been known to nip the sauce straignt from the bottle - and...
  23. Poll: Re: Your Favorite Wild Turkey Regardless Of Price

    From the choices presented, I went with the WT 101. It's simply the best twenty dollar bottle of bourbon on the planet. My regular WT pour remains the RR 101, of which I've bunkered several...

    Re: Your Favorite Bottle before you had a pour.

    How can you fail to dig the Saz Jr. bottle? That's just about a perfect bottle, down to the white letters on the glass itself.

    Another great bottle without a paper label is the WTRR101.
