    How's Old Joe taste? My grandfather used to work at Old Joe Distillery (now Four Roses). I picked up a couple unopened OJ minis on eBay, but not planning on opening them.

    Old Joe is quite good if you happen upon any. Unfiltered and oil with a nice bite.

    Nice pic.

    What is RX Bourbon? And what are those different Blanton's? I thought there was only one version of Blanton's?

    Those Blantons represent one of the great injustices of the world... export-only versions that are available in Europe and also Japan, I think. I landed a Gold version a while back, but haven't yet acquired the Silver, Special Reserve, or Straight-From-Barrel varieties. Sigh.

    Rx was available until 8 years ago.I have bought another one, unopened, 2 weeks ago. Blanton's do have several varieties that are only available in europe but guys, my list of bottles wanted (and not available overhere) is a bit longer than your list of wanted Blanton's. I'm working on it. Where there is a will there is a way.

    I'm not sure but I think Blantons has (had) 10 different label variations. I've had the silver, gold and SFTB and in my opinion, better than original. I know it's the same product but the higher proof makes it a better pour. Here's the list of various proofs that have been released over the years:

    Blanton’s original
    Black 90 proof
    Silver 98 proof
    Cask varies in proof
    Gold 103 proof
    Burgundy 1998 93 proof
    Private stock bottle 182 barrel 126, 93 proof
    Single barrel 93 proof
    Green 80 proof
    Super gold 103 proof
