    Good start! I'm interested to hear your reaction to & side-by-side comparison of the Elijah Craig 12 & 18...they are a couple of my favorite pours.

    We're terrible. The guy just dropped $200+ and we say, "good start."

    Okay class. How many different distilleries does this haul represent?

    How many different companies?

    5 companies but I'm not sure about where the Beam labels are distilled.

    So (*takes off shoes for proper counting*) assuming that the KC and BH are different distilleries, I say 6.

    (I checked my HH dates, so I edited out a bad guess)

    One's a Blue and White wax bottle (Penn State?) and the other looks like a Christmas package.

    So its the same whisky in different packages?

    If so I would have swapped out one MM for a Wild Turkey Rare Breed, and the Basil Haydens for a Van Winkle Rye.

    Actually, the only thing I see wrong with these pictures is that there are 8 bottles of bourbon, and none of them are open.

    Right you are. And I want to be the first to offer to make this indignity up to him. So, Dave, if you need any help sampling that stuff, I just want to offer my services.
