    Re: BOTM 9/07: Elijah Craig 18yo

    This whiskey is a bit austere. My wife, who is familiar with the aroma of eucalyptus confirmed that it is dominant in the early life of the pour. Over the last 20 minutes, I'm getting much more...

    Re: BOTM, 12/06: Old Grand Dad 114

    I tasted OGD 114 for the first time yesterday. I found it on sale for less than $20. It's really a great pour...much better than I expected. It's very well rounded and became fantastic with a splash...
  3. Poll: Re: Pappy 20, AH Hirsch 16 or Black Maple Hill 21

    I voted for all of them. :) Hirsch is really great, but so is Pappy. I think Pappy is a better pour in terms of objective qualities, but the Hirsch is something I personally enjoy a bit more, if that...

    Fortunately, we should have a good supply of this bourbon down in the south into the near future. Tonight I am enjoying a pour after dinner. The mint quality is very present, so I got the idea of...

    Just getting around to pouring a gold foil sample. It's nicer than I remember from the two times I've sampled the bottle before. A couple of drops of water really open it a bit. The wood flavors seem...

    Some good suggestions already. Try as many as you can. I'm a ER fan myself. Blanton's comes to mind as something to try. It's just a solid offering.

    I know it's late, but I've finally located some Elmer T Lee in New Orleans. The store I work at salvaged some from their Katrina damaged warehouse. I bought the last 3 bottles for $9 a piece. They're...

    So this BOTM runs through the 6th? I'm still working on getting my Elmer and participating. My store tells me it should be in soon. They stopped stocking it because it did not perform well for them....

    Re: BOTM 12/05: Elijah Craig 12yo

    I've got about a 1/3 bottle left that I've been working on for a month or so. I had a pour last night to go along with reading this thread. While an enjoyable bourbon, there's something there,...

    Re: BOTM, 11/05: Russell\'s Reserve 101- found some

    I've not tried Stagg but I hear it's something. My wife has been talking about a trip out that way to some chocolate factory or something, so I may just have to look this place up.

    On to...

    Re: BOTM, 11/05: Russell\'s Reserve 101- found some

    I'm in the San Francisco bay area right now. The local Bevmo has 6 or so bottles of the 101 on the shelf. I enjoy the RR101. I'm glad I have one unopened bottle. But I don't think I'll stock up. I...

    Re: BOTM, 11/05: Russell\'s Reserve 101

    That's interesting, I've found this bourbon to be pretty smooth. I'm sure there's a lot to be said for the place, time, and mood. I was sitting down with a snifter and only took my first sip after a...

    Re: BOTM, 11/05: Russell\'s Reserve 101

    Well, this was a suggestion in my very first thread here, in which I asked for recommendations. I picked up a bottle this afternoon and am currently enjoying my first few sips. Initially, I'm very...
