    Re: Hey there from St. Joe, Mo

    The only time I've been to Fort Dodge I was doing some work at the Nestle Purina plant, so that's why I guessed it. I guess they may be a customer, though. Probably the Nestle cat food plant in...

    Re: BOTM 7/11: Maker's 46

    Why should they? They are already drinking the best possible bourbon in the world. Why would they want to drink anything else?

    Re: BOTM 6/10: Fighting Cock

    I'd be surprised if that wasn't it. Both Eagle Rare 101 and Fighting Cock, named after birds and over 100 proof, are were Wild Turkey competitors. Fighting Cock just turned it up to 11.

    Re: Hello from Columbus and a question...

    Have you read any of those topics?

    The question "where does it come from?" is central to the issue. If you just looked at their Web site, you'd think the whiskey is made in a small town in Iowa...

    Re: Maker's Mark a disappointment.

    I think Maker's Mark is exactly what it's cracked up to be: a very smooth, very unobjectionable bourbon. On the tour they make a point of the fact that it's got no bite or bitterness or any other...

    Re: I just joined up here

    Was Ten High ever any good? I've got a bottle made in Peoria I picked up mainly as a novelty (mainstream bourbon not made in Kentucky), but I haven't opened it yet. It looks pretty light.

    Re: New to bourbon, some questions

    In my opinion, the yellow label wouldn't make a good match for someone who likes very peaty scotches. I'd go with the single barrel Four Roses.

    Elijah Craig 18 is another option. I like woody...

    The Johnny Walker Black makes sense; that's where most Talisker ends up.

    And it's unlikely to be harmful if sealed, even if it turns out to be not very good.

    Re: Hello from Eastern Iowa

    I second asking Illfarmboy. I don't know exactly where he is, but he's somewhere between you and Peoria, and I think he goes to the Quad Cities to shop from time to time. He would certainly be the...

    Re: BOTM 7/10: Rittenhouse Rye BIB

    And there's no operating distillery at Heaven Hill in Bardstown; there's just a still-pretty burned out brick Art Deco building, so calling it DSP-KY 31 could be tricky.

    I'm still disappointed...

    I don't live there, but I have an opinion (don't we all?). The experience of eating at Arthur Bryant's is great, but I prefer the barbecue at Gates. You can skip KC Masterpiece.

    Re: How much does a barrel of whiskey cost?

    I'm no fan of Reagan, but I remember clearly that the switch to metric sizes for liquor bottles started no later than 1978 (that's when I bought my first).

    I believe it was also voluntary. With...

    Re: Tennessee vs. Bourbon

    I remember from the tour that JD is 80% corn. The other grains are divided 12% and 8%. I just don't remember which is which. I think the 12% was the malted barley, which leaves only 8% for the...

    Yes, that's what they claim. I don't think there's ever been a definitive statement by the government, but we'll never known until somebody puts "Bourbon" on a bottle of Tennessee Whiskey, and...

    Good luck! You'll probably need to hit some scary places in the western part of town. And there's one in Germantown I haven't talking myself into stopping at yet.
