    Sticky: Re: BOTM 8/14: Blanton's

    I like Blanton's a lot, but at approximately half the price, ETL is nearly indistinguishable (actually I think it has a better longer finish) to my palate. I had one store selection of Blanton's...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 5/14: Woodford Reserve

    Yeah, I had certainly noticed the metallic taste in all of the bottles I had tried before...and it was curiously absent in this most recent batch.

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 5/14: Woodford Reserve

    I posted these observations in early May going off memory of my last bottle 12 months ago. Just picked up another bottle on sale. This new one is the first one I've found where the mid-palate...

    Re: Hello from Annapolis, MD

    Hello, and welcome, from Bethesda, MD.

    The Montgomery County stores stock 95% of whatever I want to buy, and their prices on most things (notable exception FR Single Barrel) are equal or better...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 6/14: Jim Beam White

    Friend brought a handle over to a party at our house last weekend, and I decided to stick it in the freezer. Neat, out of the freezer, it is much better than at room temperature or on the rocks. ...

    I didn't stop there, because I don't think the stuff is terrible. Perhaps a touch boring, but not terrible.

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 6/14: Jim Beam White

    JBW is not something that I want to drink when I'm in any sort of contemplative mood, but I have yet to see a similar low proofer that "stands up" to ice so well. It amazingly maintains its flavor...

    Re: Hello from Maryland

    That's too bad. Last year, Stan was assisted by Bernie Lubbers in picking out his McKenna and it was not chill filtered. I think it was the second best new bourbon I tried last year...behind PHC...

    Re: Hello from Maryland

    Welcome! I live in Bethesda, and this board is phenomenal! Very helpful folks around here. It sounds like you might like Henry McKennna BIB. It is also a single barrel. And if you are in...

    Can those of you who spoke of a differing distilling arrangement for Woodford please comment further....I thought this stuff was a mix of the Versailles pot still distillate and the Old Forester...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 5/14: Woodford Reserve

    I think standard Woodford has arguably the best nose in bourbon. This is the bourbon that started my hobby. The butterscotch/raisin combination is heaven in a bottle on the nose. The...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 12/13: J.W. Dant BIB

    Dant BIB has become the "table bourbon" in my house. I tried the current version back to back with current EW BIB and they were nearly indistinguishable. Since the EW is $12 for 750 mL and I can...
  15. Sticky: Re: BOTM 10/13: Henry McKenna Single Barrel BIB

    I just picked up a couple of bottles of the Midway Liquor barrel selection of McKenna and it is fantastic! Even better than the standard one I picked up earlier. I have compared it against nearly...

    I have tried all of the Pappy and ORVW line...I currently own one bottle of PVW15 and 3 bottles of ORVW, and in the past year I have consumed one bottle of each. I have sampled the Pappy 20 and 23...
  17. Sticky: Re: BOTM 10/13: Henry McKenna Single Barrel BIB

    No, mine is not a special bottling to the best of my knowledge. I picked this up at a Montgomery County liquor store, mostly because I wanted to compare it to my new PHC, which I am absolutely...
  18. Sticky: Re: BOTM 10/13: Henry McKenna Single Barrel BIB

    The more and more I do this comparison with HH BIB, the McKenna seems to shine brighter and brighter. I'm really starting to dig this stuff.
  19. Sticky: Re: BOTM 10/13: Henry McKenna Single Barrel BIB

    Just bought my very first bottle of this one. My initial thoughts, unlike many of you, is that it is a touch more refined than HH BIB, but not by much. I really like it, but it is nearly twice the...

    They just moved a Costco into my area, and I bought a bottle of this. My initial read is similar to fishnbowljoe's....better than Knob Creek. Less astringent and tannic. I saw somewhere on the...

    Sticky: Re: Botm 1/13: Old Forester Signature

    Have not had this in a couple of months and around here it isn't as easy to find as a number of other comparable products (e.g. Wild Turkey 101, Knob Creek). But I preferred the Signature to all of...
  24. Sticky: Re: BOTM 12/12: Jefferson's Presidential Select

    Did a side-by-side comparison of JPS 18 batches 9, 16, 17, and 28 with this year's Pappy 15. In terms of nose, all batches of the JPS 18 were superior to the Pappy. In terms of palate, I preferred...

    I have seen exactly the same thing at Binny's when I visited in mid October. I had previously purchased bottles of batches 28, then 17, then 16, then at Binny's handwritten batch #9. Don't...
