    Re: Poll: Top 5 Whiskeys

    My Top 5 until someone can beat one/all of them are:

    1. A.H. Hirsch 16 Year
    2. Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve 20 Year
    3. George T. Stagg
    4. Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit
    5. Evan Williams Single Barrel Vintage

    Old Forester Birthday Bourbon (#6) almost made it but the value and quality of the Evan Williams put it into my Top 5.

    Re: Poll: Top 5 Whiskeys

    Living in the great control state of Pennsylvania--where the state government operates all wholesale and retail of alcohol--I do not have access to some whiskeys which have received much praise on this site, namely Stagg and OF Birthday Bourbon. My Stagg is on special order, but Lord knows when (or if) I'll ever actually get it. I'll have to look into the availability of the OFBB. With that in mind, I present my current Top Five:

    1) Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye 13yo
    2) Wild Turkey Rare Breed
    3) Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit
    4) A.H. Hirsch 16yo
    5) Knob Creek

    Moving up the charts with a bullet is Wild Turkey 12yo. Late last year, the PLCB cut its price on WT12 to $38 per. I hoarded what I could (as did others), and now the state is just about dry on that number.

    Sazerac Rye 18yo was in my Top Five two years ago, but the latest release just didn't measure up to the first release, dropping it out of the rankings (but still Top 10 material).

    Re: A ReReVision. . .

    OK Tom I'll match your Re Revision with one of my own;

    1) Buffalo Trace's George T. Stagg

    2) Wild Turkey's Kentucky Spirit

    3) Buffalo Trace's Rock Hill Farms

    4) Pappy Van Winkel Family Reserve 20 year old - Yes a wheater!

    5) Brown-Forman's Old Forester Birthday Bourbon

    6) Charles Medley's Wathen's

    7) Jim Beam's Knob Creek

    I cheated a bit and gave you a different bottle for every day of the week. I challenge anyone to say they would actually be unhappy if this weeks worth of bourbon showed up on their front porch.

    Upset if those 7 showed up on the porch??? No way!!! A great list of great bourbons, is that. And thankfully, none of those pesky Tennessee whiskeys taint Linn's list.
