    Re: Top Shelf Chick

    Re: Top Shelf Chick

    You have a very nice collection, the only one that disappoints me is BH but then I have not tried it recently so it may deserve another open bottle pour to see how it has changed since the last time....

  7. Re: BOTM 12/10: Henry McKenna Single Barrel 10 yr BIB

    I love the 80 proof, how does this one compare? Does it retain a similar flavor profile (obviously more intense with proof and aging)? The 80 proof is a terrific "dessert" bourbon.
