    What makes the RHF bottle a decanter? Couldn't I just call the OWA bottle a decanter if i put a glass stopper in it?

    Probably. But the RHF bottle actually looks nice.

    I haven't had either RHF or the Woodford but I would be a lot more willing to take a risk on RHF for the price.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    Couldn't I just call my Aunt Edna my Uncle Fred if she had a mustache?

    Anywho, back to David's question. David, you can try the Double Oaked tomorrow at GBS. I would think that if you aren't a fan of the WR house style, you may not like the DO. It's definitely not as pronounced, but it is there. Personally, I like the WR style, and really enjoy what the rebarreling does in rounding out this whiskey. Makes it very cognac-like. It's hard to beat the RHF for from a taste standpoint and aesthetics, though. Make your decision after tomorrow.
    Cheers!
    JOE

    I should have guessed you'd have some, Joe. I went on my rounds yesterday looking for this and batted 0-5. It went quick!

    As a carry over from the What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today thread, I'm looking at Baker's, Booker's, and KCSB, all significantly marked down. I'm thinking I would like to pick up two out of the three.

    I've had Baker's and I like it quite a bit. I haven't tried the other two yet.

    I really like all 3, but thanks to SB, when all things are equal I tend to lean towards the higher proof, so I would go with the Bookers and the KCSB if I had to choose 2.

    Looking for a change of pace.

    WhistlePig for $59 or Bernheim Wheat at about half the price?

    Whistlepig, hands down. It is a good whiskey and that is a good price.

    I haven't had a chance to try WP but I'd be more tempted to get it at that price. That being said I have the Bernheim and I like it a lot myself. It's been a while but I recall it having a real fruity taste, like banana. The price when I picked it up was only $35 but they recently bumped it up to $41, I won't be paying that much for it, but I'd get another at the $30 to $35 range.
    Cheers,
    Tom
