    Sticky: Re: BOTM 4/15: George Dickel No. 12

    I bought a bottle. Drank it slowly over time. I wanted to like it but didn't. Just not in my wheelhouse. Left half a bottle at a party just to clear space on the shelf.

    Re: Hello from Indy

    Welcome to the forum Steelersfan! I live a little west of Indy. What side of town are you on?
  3. Re: Elijah Craig Private Selection Barrels???

    I never drink ECBP neat, other than just a taste. While I have added water to dilute it to around 105 to 110 proof, I prefer blending 50:50 EC12/ECBP. This generally gets it down to my preferred...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 3/15: Buffalo Trace

    I was trying to remember when BT bourbon was first released as the "flagship" bourbon. I know I tried it fairly early on since a friend brought back a bottle of this "new" bourbon that "you have to...

    Re: More greetings from Chicago!

    Welcome to the forum, Sean! I think I know your brother James! I bet you never heard that before. :skep:

    One thing I love about Indiana is that we share both Illinois (specifically Chicago) and...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 2/15: Stagg Jr.

    I picked up a bottle of Batch #3 today. I was told that it had been sitting around for awhile. I recall seeing Stagg Jr. on the shelf last fall but don't recall the batch number. I wasn't really...

    Welcome pellidon!

    You will find a pretty sizable central Indiana contingent in the forum. As a fellow engineer, I believe geeky is a complimentary trait!

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 2/15: Stagg Jr.

    I got a bottle of the first batch. It was pretty hot and a little harsh (as noted by Rich) without diluting either with ice, water or, my preference, BT. I tried to take it down to between 100 and...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 1/15: Wild Turkey 101

    I like it and consider it one of the better bourbons in its price range. I don't believe I have owned a bottle for about a year or so. However, I generally have at least one WT product in the...

    I am not a real fan of regular Maker's. However, I really like MMCS. I know the price seems high ($30-35) for a 375 ml bottle. However, it compares to or surpasses most bourbons in the $60-70...

    It is a great bourbon for the low $30 range. I haven't bought a bottle for over a year because I have been able to find FR BS for $45 (on sale) to $50. I find the value and flavor of the FR BS to...

    Always a nice pour! The price used to seem higher in a relative sense but with all of the price increases and overpriced sourced stuff it doesn't seem out of line.

    My perspective exactly. The price is right and there is nothing wrong with it. It just isn't something that I look forward to. I can still find aged stated bottles but I continue to pass. I...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 5/14: Woodford Reserve

    The connection to the Derby and marketing focused on the picturesque distillery have helped the brand image too.

    I like it at $25 a bottle. $35 a bottle, not so much.
