    Re: Who Likes White Dog?

    I really like white dog, but the price keeps me from bringing them home. I have some obsk white dog that I love, as well as some Ardbeg new make, which I prefer to the regular Ardbeg expressions.

    Re: Who Likes White Dog?

    I have a bottle of the BT version. I've tried it once and had some friends try it. I like it for what is in the bourbon making process, but it's not something I would ever buy again.

    Re: Who Likes White Dog?

    I love White Dog, my wife loves White Dog, my kids love...

    Oh wait, you mean white whiskey.

    I have BT, Georgia Moon, Tuthilltown, and some Kovals. I like the Kovals, and don't care for the others. I like having the Kovals on hand for the intellectual exercise of examining "pure" forms of Rye and Wheat, so no, I don't love them.

    I do agree with Kickert, in that I'll use Koval Whiskeys in place of Vodka, which I don't own. In the summertime, if my wife wants a vodka-lemonade, she'll get a Koval-lemonade.

    Re: Who Likes White Dog?

    I have a half dozen or so bottles, mostly full. I generally taste them once and then they sit on the shelf. As a rule, I know longer buy unaged whiskey.

    The only bottle I have that is close to finished is the BT which is the best of the lot. I like, particularly that it is cask strength. However, the reason it is close to empty is not so much that I drink it regularly as that I use it in tastings, and of course it is a 375 ml.

    Exactly. It's definitely got the "wow" factor -- people who like bourbon are never expecting the strong smell of popcorn from the BT white dog -- it makes folks really appreciate what the barrel does. Like others have said, I use it more for nosing than for tasting. The BT is especially good to have, since you can easily draw a straight line from their white dog right to the aged and bottled bourbons that they sell.

    Re: Who Likes White Dog?

    I have only had the BT version of white dog and didn't care for it at all. I don't think I will be buying any other version anytime son.

    Re: Who Likes White Dog?

    I'm not drinking very much white dog compared to my consumption of aged bourbon (which isn't ALL that much anyways). I don't particularly enjoy it, it's more of a novelty thing. I'm glad I have had the opportunity to taste exactly what goes into the barrel at the proof it in which it usually goes in at (it makes me appreciate that barrel more and more). I only have the BT Mash Bill #1.

    Dr. Bill visited us and gave me a taste. It was really fantastic. Not available for purchase sadly.

    Re: Who Likes White Dog?

    The only reason I would every buy a bottle is if I had a tasting. I enjoy having a taste side by side with a bourbon every now and again just to appreciate the difference. But a bottle of Evan Williams or (insert value bourbon here) costs $12 and is a whole heck of a lot better.

    The bloody mary suggestion does intrigue me. If that is good it might make me keep a bottle in the freezer.
