    Sticky: Re: BOTM 2/15: Stagg Jr.

    I filed this review on SB in September of 2013 upon my first try of Stagg Jr.. I still feel the same about it, and continue to enjoy it. Interesting to hear that the latest batch may be toned down...

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

    Me too FF. It had really started to get too hot over the palate, the mouthfeel was watery thin, and damn near no finish. I gave up on it, and have replaced it with Old Ezra 7yr 101 and Virgin 7yr...

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

    The Cask Strength hits me as a nice higher proof version of regular MM. No big change in flavor, but the extra proof shines well, particularly, as I am a big fan of regular Maker's. It really works...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 10/13: Henry McKenna Single Barrel BIB

    HM BIB's seem to have a great deal of variability to them, for some reason. A Private Selection of it that I tried recently, literally screamed the WT profile to me. It was pretty dang good.

    It's absolutely cool to post to those past BOTM's. Consider them "Living Documents"! :lol: The whiskey can change over the years, and we definitely change, so reach back in the archives as far as...

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

    Nice take on the situation, Mark. Unfortunately, several years ago here on SB, the Beam house-style that is evident in some of their whiskies got tagged with "funk" to describe it. Unfortunate,...

    Frankly, this whiskey bores me to tears. Not much nose, not much taste, and not much finish, for me. It is simply too diluted at 90 proof. Where Weller shines for me at 107, it drinks totally flat...
