    Sticky: Re: BOTM 9/14: Elijah Craig Barrel Proof

    When I first came into ECBP it was in the context of glowing reviews, the thrill of finding a hard to limited release, and high expectations. Given that build up, I was slightly disappointed at...

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

    Soooo true, and my wallet is all the lighter because of it. (Some of this I blame on you Joe). But?? I've never had more fun.

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

    I've been a few places where options were extremely limited and had Beam White and was not sad about it. It's OK. Like fox, I won't reach for it in the aisle because there's options at a similar...

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

    Damnit! 4-5 months ago, I had concluded that while nice, this bourbon wasn't interesting enough to warrant the price. Now it's BOTM. I'm still a newb, working my way through all the different house...

    Re: Hello from OH

    Welcome!
    Good thing for you, you still live close to the source. I used to live in Cincinnati - not far from you. Now I live in Washington State. Wish I had the selection I used to have!

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

    Just noticed this comment. Your impression of the late '80's JBB is like my impression of the '76 Beam's Choice 8yr I found at my parents house. Nothing at all like current Beam, and unlike any...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 7/14: Very Old Barton 100 proof/BIB

    Oh yes, I like this one a lot. It's not distributed in Washington State, but the steak and oyster house with the huge bourbon bar next to my office has it so that's how I came to try it. Liked it...

    Re: New from Bellevue KY

    Welcome aboard. I used to live in Cincinnati and shopped at TPS a lot. I do miss that place. If they shipped, I'd be a regular customer because our selection is not as good here in the Seattle area....

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

    This is one I've never tried because I get so much mileage out of OWA and Weller 12 either on their own or in the SB blend.
    Has anyone had any successful vattings of WSR with either of the above or...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 2/14: Smooth Ambler Old Scout

    Yeti - how are the 5, 6, and 7 year bourbons? I think they are all 99 to 100 proof. I see them for sale online and am tempted to pull the trigger.

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

    So funny for me to see this as BOTM as a relative newbie to the site because this was my first ever bourbon years ago. Since last year I've been doing nothing but try to expand my tastes which means...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 2/14: Smooth Ambler Old Scout

    My brother-in-law visiting from Cincinnati brought me a bottle of the 8yr cask strength rye selected by TPS and it's fantastic! I like it better than the Willet 4yr rye which I'm pretty fond of.
    I...

    I've been curious about this brand for some time and because of this thread I decided to take the plunge and pick up a bottle of the 10 yr.

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 1/14: Colonel E H Taylor Small Batch

    I also like this one a lot. It's a good value compared to others in the line. I like the single barrel, but for the price, the small batch fits the bill and is a better value. I enjoy this one neat...

    Thanks again for the tips on where to find OGD114.

    Richnimrod, I take your advice to heart. Because my bro-in-law got me started with Stagg and Handy, I made the noob mistake of thinking that...

    Thanks all. I look forward to meeting some of you local guys at some point. Thanks for the tips on OGD114. Apart from some small stores with limited selection, I've mostly been to Total Wine in...

    New member here from Seattle area

    Hello all. I've been lurking for a while trying to learn the lay of the land before joining. The revival of a thread with a bunch of PNW members compelled me to finally sign up.
