    Re: Jim Beam White vs Black vs Jack Daniels

    I find this thread extremely interesting and useful. I have to admit I don't like the 'medicinal flavor' that travis refers to...I currently happen to be experimenting with Buffalo Trace and JB...

    Re: Hi, new to bourbon

    Welcome aboard! I'm new to this board too, I agree with the idea that you need to decide for yourself what you you like and don't like. The best thing to do, in my humble opinion, is to go out and...

    Re: Hello from KC

    I came to this site about a month ago and have to say people are extremely friendly and helpful. Any initial feelings of 'intimidation' I felt were quickly forgotten. Hopefully you'll feel the same....

    Re: New Japan member's liquor cabinet

    The site says $56.00 which sounds like a bargain. Cheapest I've seen it here is around 9,000 yen...over 100 USD.

    Re: New Japan member's liquor cabinet

    Interesting! I agree the packaging is lovely. Have to admit I was intrigued when I first saw it! I don't know if it's worth it. Somehow I think my money is better spent on other stuff.

    Re: New to bourbon, some questions

    I was in the same situation about a year ago...disappointed with the bourbons I'd tasted, somehow wanting to keep exploring.

    I agree with the Blanton's recommendation earlier.

    I can't recommend...

    Thanks everyone! I had posted on another thread that I was ok. Didn't mean to ignore your messages. Really appreciate the concern from the bourbon community.

    Sticky: Re: How To Get Started.

    I'm just a novice, or an "advanced beginner" at best. The first bourbon I had was I.W. Harper and I thought it was awful, more or less. Just based on that experience I was determined to find a...

    Re: New Japan member's liquor cabinet

    Very true. Which is why I'm not willing to shell out all that extra dough for the Seijo Ishi Booker's. At least not at my current pathetic salary.

    Also in Japan I've seen standard (not "gold" or...

    Re: New Japan member's liquor cabinet

    Nice to hear all that information about Centennial. I do agree I should probably stock up on a few bottles. It isn't easy to find, but I know one or two places here in Tokyo that carry it.

    New Japan member's liquor cabinet

    Howdy-- I live in Tokyo Japan...pretty new to whiskey drinkin', but this might, just might, be the best city in the world to sample whisk(e)y in all its varieties. The liquor stores here tend to have...
  20. Re: Care to critique my order of bourbon/whiskey samplers?

    I'd definitely do it. You're getting some great selections. I personally like sampling whiskey at home more than in a bar.

    With those "top shelf" expensive bottlings, there's a big risk that you...
