[quote=mrviognier;250497]The idea of stuffing a piece of tree bark in a bottle of anything is an idea that needs to go away. It's bad for wine and for spirits. Anyone who says otherwise doesn't know what they're talking about.
I say amen to that! I do also believe cans is a better seal to beer than normal beer bottles.

I'll second the mention of OGD BIB and 114. Both are great value pours. As to a screw cap or cork give me a cap as I have had too many corks crumble on me in the past. When I tried to open a bottle of Knob Creek Single Barrel I thought I was going to have to use a pair of channel lock pliers to get the synthetic cork out of the bottle.

I'll third the OGD 114 suggestions. Best barrel proof bourbon you'll find for $25-ish. Even with a natural cork, my bottle opened easily and with no signs of damage to the cork. Never had a problem with corks in whiskey. Wine, on the other hand...

I vote for cork. There is something about the sound made by the cork being pulled out of the bottle that I really like.
