    Re: new in florida

    Welcome aboard! I can point you to some places if you are in the Tampa Bay area.

    Knob Creek (rye), Bakers (rye), Pappy Lot B (wheat). All should be under $50 with them pretty much increasing in...

    Re: Bourbon with a molasses/honey taste HELP!

    Unfortunately descriptors can be so subjective. Based on your description I'm not surprised you were directed to the ones you mention.

    Try Bakers.

    Very well said. Bottom line: Be sure to experiment, but beyond that, Drink what you like, how you like, and to heck with the rest. :)

    Re: Newbie Here

    Try the others in the Small Batch Collection. Specifically Baker's. Knob Creek was what got me into Bourbon. Welcome aboard.

    Re: BOTM, 6/07: Jim Beam Black

    I keep looking to pick up a bottle to try, but at $19.99 most places around here it's been hard to justify pulling the trigger.

    Re: BOTM, 10/05: Buffalo Trace

    Well, hopefully it turns around for you, but if you like the ER10yr then I wouldn't be too disappointed. At least around here the ER is about $6-7 cheaper than Buffal Trace.

    Re: BOTM, 10/05: Buffalo Trace

    Lexst, I haven't had BT as of yet so I can't be a ton of help, but you've mentioned some pretty different tasting bourbons in your list. Is that your "what I've liked" list or "what I've tried" list?

    Re: Books, and what should be next.

    OK, I definately recommend Baker's then. It's part of the same collection and in my opinion has alot in common with the Knob Creek. It's 3 years younger so it's a little more in your face. It's...

    Re: Books, and what should be next.

    Like Bob said, would help to know what you liked/disliked out of the ones you tasted, or at least which ones you preferred.

    If you liked the Knob Creek I'd recommend Baker's for sure. Younger...

    Dredging up an old post here, hope that's nota faux pas.

    While I've had luck tracking down both the ER 17 year (not a challenge really) and the GTS from 2006, I've not seen a drop of the WLW anywhere. If anyone has actually seen any in FL recently,...

    I have two things to say about this:

    First. This is horrible bourbon. Immediately box it up and mail it to me, I'll be happy to pay shipping to save you from this assault on your tastebuds....
