    Re: New Guy in from Louisiana

    Welcome, all I say is keep an open mind. 70% of the folks that say they hate Beam products (including Maker's Mark) or Brown-Forman products only say that because they think they are supposed to say...

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

    In my limited sample of three bottles, I have determined there is some batch variation. Batch 14-02 had a much more prominent cherry note, while 14-02 was more woody. The 14-02 was MUCH more of...

    They do, but ever since Weller 12 was declared the poor man's Pappy we can't get it in Texas every day of the year they way we could since I guess the 50's or 60's. If they do go down the road of...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 1/15: Wild Turkey 101

    It was one of my first bourbon loves. I got away from it for about 2 years because it seemed much younger and thinner. Over the past year it seems to be back in form. I think it is actually the best...

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

    I absolutely love the new MMCS..at $29.99 here in Houston. Mouthfeel is important to me, one reason I really like standard Maker's. Maybe because of the lower entry proof, but Maker's has this silky...

    I think most of you that hate Beam products hate them, because you are supposed to hate them. There is no way any of you should have any problem at all with JBW on the rocks tasted blind..neat..maybe...

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

    Yes it is...but it is a far superior product to the Weller Special Reserve they are pushing at 5 years (at best) now. I think if you did a blind taste test of current (as of in the last 6 months) WSR...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 4/14: Weller Special Reserve

    I'd have to disagree. If we are talking NAS WSR available now and not the 7 year or even the very first NAS stuff they produced, then Maker's is far better than current WSR. Maker's compared to...

    It is my go to in restaurants. Goes well with a lot of food. I have MM46 a lot at home. I think if they aged it 10-12 years and bottled it at 100 proof it would blow away anything else available...

    Welcome Alex! I pretty much go to Spec's on default. Nice to know we have some choices in our part of town. I have seen the store as I live in the Bay Area. I will certainly stop by when I drink up...

    I have never been fortunate enough to have a dusty Dant, but I think the current Dant BIB is good stuff for the price.

    I would hold your enthusiasm myself (I am). I loved the old stuff also but I think it is a sure bet the new stuff will be younger.

    Yeah, I am afraid you are right. I think when/if it comes back it will be much younger they way the 101 bourbon has become. I thought maybe my tastes had changed so I tried another new WT 101...

    That is an affirmative. It will sneak up on you if you aren't careful! I find Knob Creek Single Barrel that way as well. It is deliciously smoky, sweet and nutty yet 120 proof..

    It would not include Maker's, but frankly if any most of the Beam hater's had never tasted glut-era Beam or ND OGD they would not even mention Beam funk. OGD 114 is very good, just buy it, and enjoy...

    It took me a while to grow to like it as I am partial to wheaters as well (obviously from my handle)..but I really, really love the stuff. I try to always have it around along with Weller 12 or MM 46.
