    Sticky: Re: BOTM 11/13: Pappy 15

    IMO and YMMV always apply when it comes to bourbon, well said. If you taste some recent release Weller 12 side by side with last year's, you'll see what I mean. Try it.

    As for V17, I don't know...

    Until they make their way through all of the Bernheim, I think bitter will be an adjective we hear frequently.

    Weller 12 is a good example. If you think it tastes "sooty", crack open a bottle...

    The Fall '11 release was the worst one yet. '12 was significantly better. Pre-'09 is out of this world. Haven't yet tasted the 2013s.

    Not that any of them are bad, but some are definitely...

    I share your opinion. I've had a few bottles in the past, but recently picked up a new one and the profile has changed. Definite Beam funk in there. Still a great bourbon, but definitely different.

    Liquid Gallons are a normal liquid measurement. If you pick up a gallon of milk at the store that is one Liquid Gallon. Nothing fancy.

  6. Re: Care to critique my order of bourbon/whiskey samplers?

    Ok, so maybe it's a little high :grin:. Although, you can pay $20 for a pour of Handy at places in Louisville and I don't think you get any more than 1.5 ounces. I think it can still go either way...
  7. Re: Care to critique my order of bourbon/whiskey samplers?

    Call me crazy, but for $52, I'd definitely do it. I think it's debatable for $68.

    I'm not going to spend $300 on a bottle of Evan Williams 23 Year, or $200+ for a bottle of Rittenhouse 25 Year,...

    That's what I'm thinkin. Even if I tell him it's about an ounce a day (maybe less), I'm afraid he'll tell me to take it down a notch.

    Re: Breathing and open Bottles

    Usually the only time I can tell a difference is if it's a strong bourbon, maybe over 105 proof or so. Have you had the same experience with OGD114, OWA, and ORVW 10/107? Those are really the only...

    I find I like OWA, ORVW 10/107, and OGD 114 the more they open up.

    I thought the last one I had was phenomenal once there was about an inch left in the bottle. A recently opened bottle was a bit medicinal at first, but I poured half of it into an empty bottle for...

    I need to go pick up some more VOB. I haven't had it in awhile. I always enjoyed it, especially for $12, but remember a lot of banana (I think it was banana) which I don't find in JTS Brown BIB.

    Re: BOTM 1/11: J.T.S. Brown BIB

    I don't have a bottle of VOB BIB at home right now to compare, but I'd split it 50/50 if I was stocking up. IMO they are both better than some bourbons that sell for twice the price.

    I just checked out the Binny's website and it looks like they ship to Arkansas. I don't think I'd ever leave my house if I could have bourbon (legally) shipped to my door. :grin:

    The 2009 Mariage is excellent. Even as a relative newbie I can tell this stuff us complex, yet well balanced. I'm digging the floral/fruity/spice thing goin on.

    Re: Question From a New Bourbon Enthusiast

    Chuck,

    If you were to decant a bottle of bourbon through a unbleached coffee filter to sift out some cork, is it possible for the bourbon to "over-oxidize"?
