    Re: New from NoVA/DC/MD

    Welcome!

    I lived in Arlington for a few years and that area will always feel like a second home.

    EW BiB is a permanent favorite of mine. It's got a unique flavor, and is loved by several...

    Re: Dry Bourbons

    I think Elijah Craig 18 y.o. has a crisp, dry taste with plenty of wood. Also PVW 12 year "Lot B" has (to me) a dry flavor in many ways. I'm defining dry as both "ascerbic" and "not sweet", just to...

    Re: BOTM 6/10: Fighting Cock

    Fighting Cock is one of the great bottom shelf whiskies. It's young and sweet but I'm never disappointed with it. Thank goodness it comes at a good high proof. I could easily see them putting it...

    Re: BOTM: 3/11 Old Fitzgerald BIB

    I like HH whiskey in general, so I guess I wasn't too surprised that I liked the OF BIB. I made fancy tasting notes, but basically, I thought this was good basic bourbon - nothing at all...

    Re: Help me pick a state.....

    Be sure and get a bottle of Evan Williams White Label BiB - it's extremely rare outside of TN and KY and is a really (to my taste) super whiskey. Plus it's only slightly more expensive than Dasani...

    Re: BOTM 2/11: Old Rip Van Winkle 10 yr 107 proof

    I have to agree...I have a 200 of OWA bottled in 2003 and it tastes remarkably similar. There is more heat and spice with the ORVW, but they have a tremendous amount in common.

    Now, as for new...

    Re: BOTM 2/11: Old Rip Van Winkle 10 yr 107 proof

    Great choice Joe. I have more of this than any other whiskey. It never disappoints me, and the bottles sitting there on the shelf give me a warm glow. I hope nothing happens to this wonderful...

    Re: Glassware

    I have a Glencairn that I like well enough - but it's very small in my hand. I also use what I call a fancy beer glass - it is stemmed and shaped about like a brandy snifter, and holds just under...

    Re: BOTM 5/10 Ancient Age

    Ebo - can your retailer also get the 10 year? I'm having difficulty finding 10 year. I would assume if a retailer can get 10 star they can get 10 year, but so far this hasn't been the case.

    I...

    I've worked my way through Basil Hayden's (meh...) Maker's (meh...) Bulleit (wow!) EW BIB white label (double wow!) 4 Roses yellow (pretty good) and Knob Creek, about which I'm not sure. Plus...

    Greetings!

    Hello - Glad to have found this forum, and to have found bourbon. After years of trying to drink single malt scotch and never being able to enjoy it, I feel like I've just found money in the couch! ...
