    Re: New Whiskey Site

    Has anyone tried any of the BT Experimentals they are advertising. They aren't the standard experimentals.

    Re: New Whiskey Site

    Has anyone tried their single barrel of AAA? I might vaguely, very vaguely, recall hearing about it, but not hearing if it was better than the typical.

    And, well, Timothy, how are they?!

    Both were fine whiskies, though the Rye in wine casks the better and more interesting of the two. The Wheater was solid, but didn't seem overly special.

    Get the Willett 3yo, unless you are totally opposed to young whiskies. It's very good. It's a big, youthy, interesting dram.

    I have (Ithink I still have one in the bunker) --- considerably better than the standard issue.

    Thanks John, that's a bold statement too! AAA has always impressed me so if they really ship out of Kentucky I may need to order a couple, or more of those.

    Of course, you know what they say about opinions...

    I have had both and I much prefer the standard bottling of AAA 10yo. There was an off quality to the single barrel and it was a bit flat, IIRC.

    I grossed over eight thousand dollars in one night. Time of your life, huh kid?

    Re: New Whiskey Site

    Just wanted to clarify the shipping info. I received the following
    reply from Jon Stiles:

    "We have decided to start shipping some select items. At this time,
    they are restricted only to our private barrel selections in both single
    malts and bourbons. At some time, it may branch out to include other
    items from our independent bottlers and other unusual items. Currently,
    only the items listed on the Whiskey site are available for shipping. I
    apologize for the confusing answer you received earlier."

    (The confusing answer he refers to was a "No out of state shipping"
    reply I received to my initial inquiry - only items listed on the special
    Whisky page are available for shipping - NOT "regular" items on their
    website.)
