    Fair enough. And while I know there is almost nothing that is absolute, and perhaps it is because I tend to drift more towards Beam that I see more of it, but it doesn't seem to be an observation that is far from the mark.

    But, point taken, I will try to use a less broad stroke in the future.

    I think that is the general outside impression of this board, as being full of Beam-haters. It was my impression as well when I was in lurker mode. However even though I'd still bet the majority fall into that category, it sure isn't as one-sided as I used to think.

    Really? I've never thought that. Surely, there are some folks that don't like some (or even all) Beam products. . But, the majority? Hate Beam? Hmmm, I'm skeptical.

    Maybe if you take OGD out of the equation.

    I'll tell ya what. I'll be sad if BT does in fact knock off OWA. But, I'd throw the proverbial s&!t fit if Beam were to contemplate whacking OGD 114!

    As would we all, Joe. As would we all.

    I can't even imagine the level hoarding!

    I certainly don't hate Beam. OGD 114 is a regular pour for me. I enjoyed the BH I tried, but think it's too expensive for what it is. The 7yr they make for Costco is a steal. Everything else I've had from them is decent enough (though I haven't had JBW in years, so who knows), I just tend to prefer the stuff from other distilleries.

    Interesting...it looks like Knob Creek Rye won the 'Best Rye Whiskey' title at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

    Well, good for them. But the whole thing just sounds like a press release.
