    Sticky: Re: BOTM 8/15: Elijah Craig 12 year old

    I love EC12. I always had an open bottle. But then I somehow built up a nice reserve of ECBP. So now I make a diluted 100 proof ECBP that is closer in proof to EC12 but with the barrel selection the...

    Re: Rum Forum

    I actually made some rum punch this weekend. Granted, I am not picky on rum since I only use it in said punch, but I went with Railean Texas white rum (which, from what I can decipher, is actually...

    Re: Rum Forum

    This is precisely why I hesitate to try to really embrace any non-bourbon via a neat pour or whatnot. I'm terrified of the rabbit hole that could come of it, and I couldn't handle any more on top of...

    I was introduced to these Dark-N-Stormies by my BIL up in NJ last month. They are quite tasty. He made them with Gosling's ginger beer and rum. I feel like he added a splash of something else as...

    Re: Another one enters the ring...

    I second what squire said. I also came across a nice selection in Pensacola last summer.

    Re: Another one enters the ring...

    You came to the right place. Sounds like you are a fan of the BT #2 mash bill! A lot of people here are dismayed by ETL becoming harder to find (myself included). Welcome aboard.

    Re: Hello! All the way from Denmark.

    Welcome from across the pond. What kind of selection do you find in Denmark, just curious what the go-tos are over there?

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 4/15: George Dickel No. 12

    I have actually never had this before. I only keep one TN whiskey at a time and that's usually the JD Holiday Select since that suits me well enough. If I ever see Dickel #12 on a menu in the...

    Re: Elijah Craig Private Selection Barrels???

    I love EC12 but being in Texas where store selects are a foreign concept for the most part, I've never seen one.

    I typically dilute ECBP down to 100 proof, which I love even more than EC12. I...

    There is no wheat in BT... I guess you mean too low on the rye, though?

    BT was my gateway bourbon. I still enjoy it and always have a bottle on hand. I agree that it's a great example of a typical bourbon.

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

    Just curious, would you have been as disappointed if they called it Buffalo Trace Barrel Proof instead? It's been mentioned ad nauseam here, but BT didn't do themselves any favors with the name.

    Yea, current NAS version of 1783. Ron's 4 Grain gets harder and harder to duplicate with each passing year.

    I usually bottle up a 750mL of Stagg Jr diluted down to 100 proof. I've always been a BT fan so this suits me well. I'll pick up a bottle whenever I see it reasonably priced, which seems to be...

    I don't think there is much variance, at least not between batches 1 (113.2) and 2 (113.3). Haven't seen batches 3+ yet.

    I recently vatted MMCS with BT and EW1783 in equal parts to create a four grain, and I thought the results were exceptional.

    Re: Not Really New, exactly

    That'd be helpful, thanks. I've never seen a bottle on the shelf in the Dallas area, but I've heard here of sightings in other places in Texas.

    I have used old BOTM threads from many years ago a few times to research bourbons I didn't know much about (that aren't made any longer, for example).
