    Not a bad haul. The Parkers is a terrific find and the '08 ER 17 is also a good buy. Are you adding to a collection or starting out?

    Re: Went out "Bourbon Hunting"....here is what I shot

    Well Dave, here are my thoughts. I know nothing about the Sam Houston, or the Parker's Heritage. I do believe that I tasted the Parker's at the KBF, and from what I remember , it was pretty good. I would have passed on the Jim Beam and Old Whiskey River. These items have been discussed here on other threads. I personally don't think they are worth the price. Although, the last time I saw Whiskey River, it had dropped a few bucks. The 2008 ER17 is a good buy, as is the Rock Hill Farms. I also like the 1792. The EWSB is pretty good for the most part. It does vary a little from year to year. Theses are just my thoughts for what it's worth. Anyway, good haul! Joe

    Dave. Curious to know what you think about that Sam Houston. It just showed up in Chicago, and I'm thinking about snaggin one. Nice Gun collection. Mayor Daley would lock me up for that. Just a little jealous.

    I really liked the Sam Houston when I tried it a few months back.....I was overly-impressed, actually. Now that I've tossed some more first-class stuff down my gullet, I'd be interested to see if I enjoy it as much. Still, I think it has a nice, sweet & peppery taste that's pretty distinctive. It's reasonably priced and a solid pour that doesn't get a lot attention.

    To make Chuck happy, let's do the rundown:

    BTAC Eagle Rare 17 is BT, of course
    Sam Houston is HH juice (I believe), company is Castle Brands
    Evan Williams is HH
    Jim Beam is Beam
    Parker's....I don't know...ouch...someone help me here
    Rock Hill Farms is BT
    Old Whiskey River is HH
    1792 Ridgemont is Barton's.

    Parker's Heritage is named for HH master distiller Parker Beam, and is the first barrel proof released by them. I got their newsletter the other day, and there is a new $500 barrel proof William Heavenhill commemorative bottle out. Soon rappers will be drinking this stuff!

    There were three bottlings of the PH first release. What is the proof of the one you got Dave?

    I believe the William Heavenhill was released in September, either just before, or during the KBF. Saw a bottle at the distillery. Through the efforts of a member of SB.com that works at HH, and the graciousness of the folks at HH, a bottle was donated for competitors in the SB.com BTOTY competition to taste. As luck would have it, everyone in attendance managed to get a taste. It was pretty darn good. Joe

    Why does the M4 at the top have such a thin clip?
