    That's great philly. EC12 is one of the mosty controversial labels around these parts. I'll pencil your Bro-in-Law as one of the good guys

    There is a bit of reading if you want to find out what the board thinks of this label

    Good to see you posting.

    Might as well give my two cents..

    I enjoyed the 12yo immensely and will be going back, however on the back of enjoying the 12 i decided to give the 18yo a go and boy was I disappointed. Far too woody and over aged. It was like this dry wood taint which never left the palette, i can still taste it and its not good.
    The extra aging spoils the great sweet flavors abound in the 12yo.

    Great call on the EC12, Philly. I, for one, have never...ever...been disappointed in any EC12 I've had. Terrific whiskey, at a terrific price.

    EC 12 is the only bottle of bourbon that I could not drink. It was nasty straight, on the rocks, or with ginger ale. I poured the bottle down the drain so the sewer rats could get a buzz on.

    It may have been a bad bottle but I have never bought it again and I don't intend to.

    I've not tried it. Would it be fair to say EC12 is a high rye? I'm considering a purchase of EC12 or EC18.

    EC12 is one of the best bourbons in in that price range and one of my favorites. I have been wanting to try the 18 year old but have heard many people tell tale of an over-aged whiskey.

    People may say that it's "high rye" in profile, but it is definitely not "high rye" in mashbill. It's the standard HH rye-recipe mashbill, which is high corn/low rye. 75%Corn and 13%Rye according to Josh's Whiskey Tree.

    BTW, why isn't Josh's Whiskey Tree a sticky?????

    While it's not my absolute favorite that I've had, it is certainly more than palatable to me.

    Regards.
