    Should one assume that the bottle counts indicated on a bottle of single barrel whiskey relect the actual number of bottles that were in the barrel?

    Re: BOTM 2/11: Old Rip Van Winkle 10 yr 107 proof

    Opened a 10/107 2007... excellent pour with a huge vanilla extract palate. This expression really seems to change year to year... possibly batch to batch...

    Re: New from NoVA/DC/MD

    IMO the EW BIB for about $12.50 in Va. is a great value.... the best of the 3 you mentioned to my palate.

    Re: BOTM 5/11: Four Roses Yellow Label

    Re: BOTM 5/11: Four Roses Yellow Label

    Probably the best value all around bourbon in the under $20 market. For an 80 proofer it has enough flavor to enjoy neat and works well as a mixer. Always a bottle open on my bar....

    Re: BOTM: 3/11 Old Fitzgerald BIB

    This stuff seems to be all over the place. A few bottles from 2004-05 were fine... the last stuff was just as you describe it. Why the variation???

    Nice review Joe.... This has always been a good pour but has been a bit over shadowed by its other family members.

    Re: BOTM 6/10: Fighting Cock

    I find this to be a good all around value play for mixing and using in recipes.... eggnog, marinades, etc. A bit hot to my palate for a neat pour.

    Re: BOTM 10/10: Sazerac Rye

    Not a bad pour but one that I tend to pass by often.... still only half way through my first bottle. When I use rye as a mixer WT or RITT is my go to and when I want it neat it is Handy or daddy...
