    Sticky: Re: BOTM 8/15: Elijah Craig 12 year old

    I have liked EC12 in the past but the last two bottles I bought were not good. Watery with little flavor, so I have not bought it in about 2 years

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 5/15: Jim Beam Bottled In Bond

    This has become a favorite of mine. I like the Beam style anyway, but REALLY like the new JBBIB. It hasn't a fantastic mouthfeel and is the right combination of wood and sweetness. I also don't find...

    I came across a store selection of Old Scout 8 year from NASA Liquors in Houston on NASA Parkway about a month ago.I just finished the bottle this past weekend. I think it is one of the best bourbons...

    I have had 3 bottles over the last few years. One was very good, the other two had too much of that Vitamin taste...yuck.

    Re: New Guy in from Louisiana

    Welcome, all I say is keep an open mind. 70% of the folks that say they hate Beam products (including Maker's Mark) or Brown-Forman products only say that because they think they are supposed to say...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 11/14: Maker's Mark Cask Strength

    In my limited sample of three bottles, I have determined there is some batch variation. Batch 14-02 had a much more prominent cherry note, while 14-02 was more woody. The 14-02 was MUCH more of...

    They do, but ever since Weller 12 was declared the poor man's Pappy we can't get it in Texas every day of the year they way we could since I guess the 50's or 60's. If they do go down the road of...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 1/15: Wild Turkey 101

    It was one of my first bourbon loves. I got away from it for about 2 years because it seemed much younger and thinner. Over the past year it seems to be back in form. I think it is actually the best...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 11/14: Maker's Mark Cask Strength

    I absolutely love the new MMCS..at $29.99 here in Houston. Mouthfeel is important to me, one reason I really like standard Maker's. Maybe because of the lower entry proof, but Maker's has this silky...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 3/14: Maker's Mark

    Yes it is...but it is a far superior product to the Weller Special Reserve they are pushing at 5 years (at best) now. I think if you did a blind taste test of current (as of in the last 6 months) WSR...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 4/14: Weller Special Reserve

    I'd have to disagree. If we are talking NAS WSR available now and not the 7 year or even the very first NAS stuff they produced, then Maker's is far better than current WSR. Maker's compared to...

    It is my go to in restaurants. Goes well with a lot of food. I have MM46 a lot at home. I think if they aged it 10-12 years and bottled it at 100 proof it would blow away anything else available...

    I would hold your enthusiasm myself (I am). I loved the old stuff also but I think it is a sure bet the new stuff will be younger.

    Yeah, I am afraid you are right. I think when/if it comes back it will be much younger they way the 101 bourbon has become. I thought maybe my tastes had changed so I tried another new WT 101...
