    Sticky: Re: BOTM 12/13: J.W. Dant BIB

    113 is the current Buffalo Trace distillery, IND 2 is the current LDI distillery. I had a small bottle once, and it was really good, probably better than the 2/31 in my opinion. Been a while since...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM 12/13: J.W. Dant BIB

    The 113/113 was a 200ml, probably stored badly, but BalconesWinston, TimD, and I were in attendance when opened. I can't remember if it had Fresno, CA on it or not. A 375 from another store was...

    I've had some 113/113 that was just vile, ended up dumping the small bottle for drain cleaner and felt bad for the drain.... ;) I like your comparison Sailor and the term table bourbon.

    I've had Dant's from BT, DSP-KY-2, old HH, and new HH. My favorites so far have been the 2/31's and the 2/16's. I will post some reviews later this week when I get some slow time to relax with a...

    Sticky: Re: Botm 1/13: Old Forester Signature

    When I started dusty hunting I picked up several old label OF 100 proofs. It's a constant open bottle in my cabinet now. The OFBB '11 I found to be very similar tasting, which was nice!

    I'll...

    make sure you hunt out some Fleischmann's Rye since you're up there and all....Every time I hit Milwaukee I always make sure to grab a few.

    Welcome!
  8. Sticky: Re: BOTM 9/12: Evan Williams BIB AND Heaven Hill BIB

    Is the gold BIB still produced? I've run across a few handles but they're all dusty, stating DSP-KY-31. Also, what's the difference between White and Gold? Age? Or, since BIB, all 4 years, just...

    very nice Pav! I'd have opened that too asap, and been happy to do it! There is no real value beyond what you have done in many of our opinions.

    Re: Wheaters vs. Rye

    Having had a bottle of Berhneim, I'd say it was interesting but not all that great. I'd also say it didn't allow me to find the wheat any better in wheated bourbons. Rye on the other hand was...
  12. Sticky: Re: BOTM 9/12: Evan Williams BIB AND Heaven Hill BIB

    I find the EW BIB (EWW) to be a bit young and corny, but that it goes great on the rocks. Nice pour when I don't want to think too much about what I'm drinking, and just enjoy it with a smoke on the...

    Sticky: Re: BOTM: 5/12 Evan Williams Single Barrel

    The 2001 I tried was flat and weak, almost watery. I actually preferred EWB over it. But, different barrels will be different so my experience may be totally different than yours.

    Forgot to add, the two exported 4R products are just different bottle/label versions of 1B and yellow label. Same bourbon. If you go back, sign up for the mellow moments club, and do a "private...

    Hi Patrick,

    I'm not too far from you this week, but Friday I head back to Texas. You've got a good selection up here, both rye and bourbons. Much better rye selections than I have back home, but...
  16. Sticky: Re: BOTM 8/12: Eagle Rare 10 Year 101 Proof

    Nothing like the current sweet light bourbon called Eagle Rare, ER101 is a great all around drinker. You can sip it and it holds up to some good stuff or you can just zone out and drink it without...

    Re: BOTM 5/11: Four Roses Yellow Label

    I really enjoy the yellow label. For what it is, and where it sits in the range of bourbons available to us, it is heads and shoulders above the crowd. It can usually be had for $20, and satisfies...

    Re: New SF bay area member

    Welcome to the disease! I also enjoy my pipes a few times a week, any favorite pairings?

    Tom Moore BIB and any va/per are great in my mind, and I had a sublime Opus X along with EC18 last week.

    Sticky: Re: BOTM: 5/12 Evan Williams Single Barrel

    From what I can recall, the '97 was Beam distilled, '98 and '99 were Brown-Foreman distilled, and the rest have all been either DSP-KY-31 pre-'97, or DSP-KY-1 post '99.

    I have and do enjoy the...

    So I picked up a bottle of EC12 bottled in 2001, pre-fire distillate.

    It's almost undrinkable. Eucalyptus/mint in such a strong dose, but then it finishes up with that vanilla caramel goodness. ...

    That bumps my time line for the NOLA bottle I have up quite a bit. It's shaped like your Louisville one, short, squat, with the big bottom.

    No need for nasty bourbon to take up valuable bunker...

    That's what I thought too. Are you able to post the bottle codes off the bottom or the date code?
