    Trust me, I've been doing plenty of reading around the board already, I've already been ruined (plus I have plenty of rum hidden in closets already).

    I'm not concerned about the extra cost, just curious if ERSB is a step-up from BT and warrants the extra $5.

    IMO, just being a different whiskey warrants the extra $5. So, absolutely.

    Thanks, I'll give it a try.

    Some folks say that they've had good and bad barrels. I've had nothing but good barrels. I've always bought the 1.75L bottles, so I'm going to continue doing so in hopes that I keep up the lucky streak.

    I'm in Ohio and the price difference between the two is about $5, is it worth the extra cost?
    I like ER1B much better than the BT. I have bought several bottles of ER and only one bottle of BT and I only spend more than $30 on bourbon a couple times a year.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    Thanks, brought a bottle home with me tonight. I'll give it a try tomorrow.

    I just got around to having a pour of ERSB tonight...and I'm already on number 2.

    While BT is very good and I found the 2 bottles shared quite a bit in common, ER seemed to be smoother. I believe I once again have a new favorite bourbon, but then again, I still have a lot to try.

    I've had three bottles of this brand separated by a year each as I got them for Christmas presents. Thery were solid Bourbons with no negatives, good nose and flavor, just not exceptional enough to replace at my own expense.
