    Has anyone had Jefferson's and actually thought it stood up well to WhistlePig?

    I was going to get a bottle at our Binny's Fling but got talked out of it and grabbed a WhistlePig (which I've had several times and love).

    I'd love to try the Jefferson's sometime.

    My first taste of Jefferson's had me thinking it WAS WhistlePig at a lower proof. My second taste of Jefferson's convinced me I didn't need to pay twice as much for WP.

    I still plan on doing a side by side (thanks to Brent) but haven't had any free time to do so!

    Worked 12 hours today. :-( And I work 36 hours this weekend.

    Hopefully next week I can squeeze a tasting in.

    Mat, welcome back, seems like its been awhile since I've seen you around. Glad that you liked the Jeff, tried as I could, it just didn't do anything. It was very one dimensional to me. I need something more than that.

    Josh, you are welcome. Folks have been good to me, and just repaying in kind.

    Thinking of cracking open a Masterson's tonight. Keeping my fingers crossed on the flavor, hoping for a better turnout than the Jeff.

    If not, might be a three way comparison..........

    Did a search for Masterson's and found this thread.

    Well....any opinions yet for those who tried this?

    I liked it. It is, indeed, very similar to WhistlePig.

    Nice review sku. I read the comments at bottom...

    For the price, I was expecting a lot more from this Masterson's whiskey. I sure hope Canadians can get this at $25 a bottle because that's the price point it is equivalent to.

    Lol..if this is $65-$70 a bottle in USA, it would be $125-$150 up here in Canada.

    Sadly W2W, your guess was not far off.

    Seen this recently at several local retailers. Felt absolutely no desire to make a purchase.
