    Re: K&L Fear Tactics?

    (Cowdery, QUOTE) The whole point of being a knowledgable bourbon consumer, which is the whole point of straightbourbon.com, is that you can walk into a store anywhere and at anytime and if they have any kind of bourbon selection, you can walk out with one or more bottles that you know you'll enjoy, and maybe even a good value or two. (QUOTE)

    (QUOTE)

    Nicely stated & helpful to recent arrivals to straightbourbon.com. People like me. And I also agree that it would be less fun if folks didn't go over the top on occasion.

    Thanks,

    Jon

    I believe the proper term is "scullery maid."

    And for you, that's saying something.

    So, if it's available I'll buy it and if it isn't I'll buy something else. Good whisky is always available and life goes on.

    Re: K&L Fear Tactics?

    Weller 12 has been a favorite of mine, but is increasingly hard to find in my neighborhood, and even through mail order. I'd be more concerned about the recent shortages if there weren't so many special retailer single barrel bottlings of Weller Antique available these days. To me, current Weller 12 is pretty woody and dry -- even more so than usual -- and I'm finding myself more drawn to the fruitier, livelier single barrel Weller Antiques, instead. But no Weller 12 means no SB blend, and that IS a problem.

    I completely understand where you're coming from. Several posts discussing an exchange between two posters; not exactly the topic at hand.

    But I think the whole 'Peasant' thing is actually pretty relevant to the Weller 12 - Lot B relationship. Socioeconomic status symbolism is at least a huge factor in defining the difference between the two whiskies. Also, the fear that one of the exemplar everyman "Peasant" whiskies could become just as inaccessible and elevated as the Van Winkle line drives is pretty much the premise behind the topic.

    Also, everyone should look up Peasant on Urban Dictionary.

    Drinking whisky does make me pleasant.
