  1. Sticky: Re: BOTM 12/12: Jefferson's Presidential Select

    Anyone tried the Liquor Barn single barrel? Curious as to how good it is relative to the better JPS batches.
  2. Sticky: Re: BOTM 8/12: Eagle Rare 10 Year 101 Proof

    Found a ER 101 decanter in NW Illinois ... it was way up on the top shelf -- needed to get a store employee to take it down. The poor eagle had a broken wing.

    As I waited for the guy to get a...
  3. Sticky: Re: BOTM 12/12: Jefferson's Presidential Select

    Here's what I want to know, i.e. really want to know:

    Over the last 6 months, I've seen a lot of 20s+ batch numbers for the 18 at Chicago area Binny's stores. Now I'm seeing much lower batch...

    Re: hello from afghanistan

    Welcome, Bates. Make some friends on this site, they will ply you with amazing bourbon upon your return. You're certainly welcome in Chicago any time.

    Where are you returning to in the USA?

    Re: Top Shelf Chick

    Yeah, this glass doesn't effect taste nonsense is really dumb and I mean that as in: If you really think glass doesn't effect taste, then I think you're dumb. I've done a few blind tastings where I...
  6. Sticky: Re: BOTM 3/12: Old Rip Van Winkle 10yr 90 proof

    I'm too tired to actually debate it, and I guess debating is really irrelevant when it comes to individual tastes, but the ORVW = almost Weller (ORVW 10/90 = Weller SR, ORVW 10/107 = Weller Antique)...
  7. Sticky: Re: BOTM 3/12: Old Rip Van Winkle 10yr 90 proof

    For me, the biggest difficulty this board has caused me is the death of the value pour. If I've got an amazing bottle (or 5) open, it's really, really hard for me to go for something less. I guess...
  8. Re: BOTM 2/11: Old Rip Van Winkle 10 yr 107 proof

    Wow, what a lesson in how higher proof can really knock a weaker expression out of the park (i.e. ORVW 10/107 v ORVW 10/90).

    It still pisses me off, a bit, to find this on the bottom shelf at...

    Re: New In Chi-Town

    One's mind doesn't get blown all that often, but, damn, I had the pleasure of a tasting Friday night with some absurdly generous SB members and it played out like something out of a dream.

    Re: New In Chi-Town

    Might anyone suggest where to post about bourbon bars? General bourbon discussion?

    We did a Louisville/Lexington trip last month and I have a few I want to post about, but the one that has...

    Re: New In Chi-Town

    Thanks, Joe, it was indeed the other Joe.

    I've been incredibly lucky since I've joined the forum. Discovered Four Roses Mariage, fell in love with it about halfway though the bottle. Tried to...

    Re: BOTM 9/10: Booker's

    Obviously good juice in the stupidest packaging will still be good juice. So Brisko misses my point. I'm assuming a world in which most of us have limited funds and thus we must occasionally judge...

    Re: BOTM 9/10: Booker's

    Is anybody deterred from buying this because of the stupid box? I dunno, it seems like a fire extinguisher BREAK IN CASE OF EMERGENCY type of thing. I dunno, seems like it's trying too hard to be...

    Re: New In Chi-Town

    Mark Twain's quip about the dubiousness of any club that would have me as a member aside, I am glad to be able to interact with such smart bourbon drinkers.

    Was just at Binny's yesterday and...

    Well, White Dog, I don't think she was wearing her government-issued stripper nametag at the time ... so it's totally possible that he was interested in her for her (considerable) intelligence.

    New In Chi-Town

    Howdy all,

    I've been lurking for about two months now. Found this forum after deciding to get serious(er) about bourbon, and I have to say, it has been a remarkable resource so far.

    Just two...
