    Re: Hello from Detroit

    Pick up a Four Roses Single Barrel and if you can find it an Old Rip Van Winkle 10yo 107prf, if not get an Old Weller Antique 107 and Wild Turkey Rare Breed is very good too.

    Re: BOTM 5/11: Four Roses Yellow Label

    Jim Rutledge has been lobbying Kirin to up the proof to 90 or at least 86.
    Bars tend to stock 80 proofers over higher proofs for both profit and not to get the customers to intoxicated.

    Re: Dry Bourbons

    I would say Pappy 15yo is drier than ORVW.
    The Old Rip can be toffee/caramel like, however I got one recently that wasn't good at all, maybe that release is what you were referring to.
