    The PS AAA is sold out, it was a very tasty value pour. They still have the regular bottling of it. The other I've tried are now sold out so I can't help you with that. I replied on your other thread regarding the Bowman.

    I haven't had any of TPS SBs but a friend did a tasting of the
    Bowmans and felt that # 5 was the better of the two bourbon
    selections (tho' both come in behind the Bowman Gift Shop
    version.)

    If he likes wheaters I have a bottle of the Bernheim. Incredibly quaffable with a small sticker price.

    You can read about JP 18 in this thread. There
    a few other JP SBs discussed as well.

    If it was between the bowman barrel 5 and the willet 3665 13 year would you have a preference?

    I have not had the bowman #5 but it is on the to do list. I did have the Willett 3665 and did enjoy especially with just a splash of water. I think the TPS description even mentions that it opens up with some water. I would do it again for sure. But my next purchase will be the Bowman to give it a shot.

    Bernheim is straight wheat whiskey, not a wheater, which is what we call a wheated bourbon. They are two very different animals.

    Oops. That'll teach me to give advice before I know my butt from a hole in the ground.
