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

    Was just reviewing these comments as I finish off my first bottle of MMCS. And I couldn't agree more with Weller_tex...the current plain Maker's blows WSR (and OWA for that matter) out of the water....

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 12/14: Four Roses Single Barrel

    No private selections in my immediate area, but driving less than an hour I found a cask strenght OESQ that has become one of my all-time favorites!

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

    I am more and more impressed with this stuff. In side-by-sides with the only two wheaters I really dig (WLW and PVW15), the MMCS held its own except for the nose.

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 12/14: Four Roses Single Barrel

    For my taste and my budget, absolutely one of the top 2 of the readily available products on the shelf today. This is the bottle that sent bourbon from something I enjoyed frequently to becoming a...

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

    Just picked up a bottle of this and my first impression is that it is fantastic. Lots of warm cinnamon and vanilla. I'm going to side-by-side this with WLW and Pappy 15, the only other two wheaters...

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

    I like Blanton's a lot, but at approximately half the price, ETL is nearly indistinguishable (actually I think it has a better longer finish) to my palate. I had one store selection of Blanton's...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 5/14: Woodford Reserve

    Yeah, I had certainly noticed the metallic taste in all of the bottles I had tried before...and it was curiously absent in this most recent batch.

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 5/14: Woodford Reserve

    I posted these observations in early May going off memory of my last bottle 12 months ago. Just picked up another bottle on sale. This new one is the first one I've found where the mid-palate...

    Hello, and welcome, from Bethesda, MD.

    The Montgomery County stores stock 95% of whatever I want to buy, and their prices on most things (notable exception FR Single Barrel) are equal or better...

    Friend brought a handle over to a party at our house last weekend, and I decided to stick it in the freezer. Neat, out of the freezer, it is much better than at room temperature or on the rocks. ...

    I didn't stop there, because I don't think the stuff is terrible. Perhaps a touch boring, but not terrible.

    JBW is not something that I want to drink when I'm in any sort of contemplative mood, but I have yet to see a similar low proofer that "stands up" to ice so well. It amazingly maintains its flavor...

    Re: Hello from Maryland

    That's too bad. Last year, Stan was assisted by Bernie Lubbers in picking out his McKenna and it was not chill filtered. I think it was the second best new bourbon I tried last year...behind PHC...

    Welcome! I live in Bethesda, and this board is phenomenal! Very helpful folks around here. It sounds like you might like Henry McKennna BIB. It is also a single barrel. And if you are in...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 5/14: Woodford Reserve

    I think standard Woodford has arguably the best nose in bourbon. This is the bourbon that started my hobby. The butterscotch/raisin combination is heaven in a bottle on the nose. The...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 12/13: J.W. Dant BIB

    Dant BIB has become the "table bourbon" in my house. I tried the current version back to back with current EW BIB and they were nearly indistinguishable. Since the EW is $12 for 750 mL and I can...

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

    The more and more I do this comparison with HH BIB, the McKenna seems to shine brighter and brighter. I'm really starting to dig this stuff.
  24. Sticky: Re: BOTM 10/13: Henry McKenna Single Barrel BIB

    Just bought my very first bottle of this one. My initial thoughts, unlike many of you, is that it is a touch more refined than HH BIB, but not by much. I really like it, but it is nearly twice the...
