    Re: Newbie

    The second bottle of bourbon I owned, not including many bottles of Jim Beam White in my early years, was a bottle of Pappy Van Winkle 20. I was thinking the same thing as you. However, I have been...

    Re: Delilah's in Chicago

    Funny things is, he 'crashed' my picture. I asked a buddy to take a picture of me and my brother in law, and Don literally shoved his way into the shot.

    Re: Delilah's in Chicago

    Don was nursing a can of PBR, pouring it into what looked like about a 4 oz. glass. He probably wanted me to buy him a drink, but he was not my type.:lol:

    I did make it to Delilahs. The tastings that I did were fun, but the overall experience was a dissapointment. This was mostly due to the bartender there. He was very impersonal. I tried to engage him...

    Re: Are mini bottles a reliable sample?

    That's interesting that the mini had cork. I haven't seen that yet. The cap seems to be the hardest thing for the producers to replicate. I see a lot of bottles that look just like the 750ml except...

    Are mini bottles a reliable sample?

    I assume it's the same contents of the regular bottles, but is there anything inherent about them that they would not be a reliable sample of the whiskey? If I like or dislike something from a mini,...

    Delilah's in Chicago

    I am planning on going there tomorrow night. 600+ Whiskies. For those who have been, any suggestions on enjoying my visit? Has anyone tried their new house bourbon?

    Re: BOTM 2/09: Hancock's Reserve

    I checked Binny's friday night and it was $49.00. I wanted to buy it because it is BOTM, but nobody has posted a compelling reason to shell out that kind of dough. I went with ETL instead.

    Thanks for the correcting me, I screwed that up pretty good. Although, wouldn't you say that WT101 has a higher rye profile than BT or KC? Seems that way to me.

    I guess some bourbon lovers find it hard to wrap their mind around the idea of "One bottle". It's too painful I guess.
