I'm not experienced enough to give a real review. But my novice taste buds will tell you their blend is very very smooth and has a strong chocolate finish. Not like anything I've tried to date. Very enjoyable.

    It's cheap whiskey that's blended with vodka. Although I haven't had any so I can't offer a true opinion...maybe one of our other Texas members can talk about it (Winston?).

    BT Single Oak #189. I have enjoyed every sip of this one. Unfortunately I am down to my last sip of it.

    I also have been enjoying a great TPS BTEC Wheat on Rye II, which is also almost gone.

    Now moved on to some WTKS Smooth Dark Top from 2002. This is some dark bourbon with that great Turkey profile, and I'm getting some dark chocolate out of this one tonight.

    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking? - Summer 2012

    After spending the last two weeks in Italy drinking wine, I decided that some special pours were in order. Opened a bottle of 2011 PVW 15, which I thought was outstanding. Also opened a Four Roses limited edition Kentucky Derby OESV (10 years, 8 months), which was excellently spicy. Good to be home.

    Those smooth dark tops from 02/03 are my favorites. Dark whiskey for sure.

    When I lived somewhere with an actual climate, during warm weather I'd stuff a bottle of 100 proof VOB or white label HH in the freezer. I really like both of these bourbons chilled. Hell, I still do the same thing even though I live in climate-controlled Southern California. This year it's VOB.

    There was one little country store that had the darkest WTKS that I've ever seen (it was a smooth dark top). The only reason that it didn't walk out the door with me was that it was $70 plus tax.
