    Re: I just dumped a bottle of EC12 down the drain

    They say different strokes for different folks, I'd rather have an EC 12 than a Weller and I'd rather have an EC 18 than a Pappy 15, but then, I'm an Islay lover.

    Re: BOTM 8/11: Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve

    I found a bottle in Little Rock and claimed possession. Unlike some folks on the site, I like Beam products. My comments: First, this isn't a true single barrel. Otherwise we'd have barrel...

    Re: BOTM 5/11: Four Roses Yellow Label

    I should have mentioned: I was touring the Cox Creek warehouses one day when they were pouring YL for export. It is shipped at cask strength and dilluted and bottled in Gernmany or Japan. I...

    Re: BOTM 5/11: Four Roses Yellow Label

    I'll join the ranks of the 4R lovers. and say this is great bourbon for the price. As Joe mentioned earlier, when PA had their sale he was nice enough to get me a case. As a summer time drink, try...

    Re: How to read labels and bottles?

    I always look for the DSP #. Anything with DSP 16 is going to be good. Sometimes you can find a date n the bottom of the bottle. One of the members posted a list of DSP nos. Maybe with some...

    Re: New from Noblesville, IN (North Indianapolis)

    Welcome Josh,

    The way you spell whisky, without the "e", and the fact that you admit to being a friend of TomH, lead me to believe you are a lover of the "dark side".

    Kind of late to chime in now, but I'm surprised no one mentioned Four Roses. Good bourbon and you could tell them the neat story of its fall from grace when Seagrams bought them and its recent...

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

    Found a bottle in Little Rock. I think it's as good or better than EW SB from the same distiller, and less money. I'll be on the lookout for more the next time I'm down there.

    Re: BOTM 7/10: Rittenhouse Rye BIB

    I like it. I think it's a great value for the money. WT is as good or maybe just a hair better, but it's more expensive down here. I have some, and I'll probably buy more.

    Re: Question From a New Bourbon Enthusiast

    Personally, I would rank FR yellow label as equal to or superior to some of the bourbons on your list, but I'm a big FR fan. Consequently, if you can afford the 31E, try the...
