They're all good, but I've never been wow'd.
    Josh, I love me some Turkey . . . I didn't mean to insinuate otherwise.

    As far as VWs are concerned, I think we probably have very similar opinions . . . I've gone on record as saying I hadn't met a VW that I loved. I liked the OWA 7/107 better than the ORVW 10/107 by a long shot (I'm really interested to give this one another try, though), the PVW20 is damn good but not worth the price, the PVW23 is just nasty, I haven't had the 15 yet, but the Lot 'B' . . . wow. I will say that (going back to my leader/follower theory) I always use OWA as a prelude to the Lot 'B' . . . after the OWA has gone down, a pour of Lot 'B' is next to amazing.

    Also, the VW Rye is outta sight!

    I have only had one tiny taste of the Weller 12, so I can't comment -- I thought it stood its ground against Weller Centennial, though . . . my cousin is hopefully brining me 2 Weller 12s this weekend from Boston, so if she comes through, I'm interested to see how it stacks up . . .

    just my two cents, but I say remember the leader/follower thing . . . it has changed my mind significantly a few times.

    cheers.

    4R1B 120th Anniversary, neat.

    Bottle No: 1424
    Warehouse No: JW
    Barrel No: 7-10
    Proof: 112.6

    I finished off a bottle of 4R1B Binny's #1 over the weekend.
    After that bottle this one seems a little bit hot.
    Also heavier on the rye spice % over the sweet fruit.
    But a very nice finish.

    I hate when that happens. There is a bar in Galesburg ILL. called Big John's Silver Dollar Saloon. When he's behind the bar he measures every pour. Plus, the man doesn't exactly have the gift of gab. He's sort of surly.

    JBB on top of Hiram Walker Chocolate Mint liqueur. No matter how I stir it, the two don't seem to mix, and separate out quickly.

    Best Bar name ever. And his personality seems appropriate!

    Sat out on the front porch with my son and enjoyed a cigar and some '85 Old Overholt.
