Runner Ups and not by much: WLW '12, FR Limited Edition Small Batch, Knob Creek Reserve SB-Binny's Barrel 153, PVW 15 '12 release .
Distillery of the Year: Four Roses...more incredible considering the short time they've been back and best private barrel bourbons of the year.
Runner Up: Buffalo Trace...Pricing and NAS are drawbacks but OWA still on private barrel program make up for those sins.
The Best Lets Keep it "Shh" Bourbon: OGD 114.
The Biggest Wish: Another wheater anything close to the PHC wheater release.
The Biggest Continuing Disappointment: Wild Turkey.
The Most Trustworthy and Forthcoming Guy in the Biz: Jim Rutledge
Best Dusty: Smokinjoe's Fairfax County BIB.
Foreign Whisky: Anything Lost Pollito or Brophmonster pour me from Binny's barrel picks or Redbreast Cask[B].
I agree with just about everything except bourbon of the year. I have to go with FR LE SmB. The PHC 6th didn't do it for me and I've loved the previous 5 offerings. Something about it just didn't quite hit the right notes to me...perhaps I just had it on an off night.
