    EDIT: interesting, THH (Thomas H. Handy) isn't on the abbreviation post
    I don't see CHET in there either but I guess that's Colonel Taylor. I have seen that around town a few times (not the Tornado edition.) Is it worth picking up compared to maybe a BTAC?

    What Did You Pass Up Today? Winter '12/'13

    I like the Tornado but its not as good as BTAC - haven't had any of the other CEHT's though.

    I think it's called E.H. Taylor Small Batch with a yellow vintage looking label.

    I've tried the CEHT Tornado, Barrel Proof and the SmB and I'd take any of the BTAC over any of the CEHT. The Tornado is my favorite but I think they're all over priced.

    There are people here that would disagree. You know the old song "one man's ceiling is another man's floor". Gotta find out that "worth" yourself .

    Passed up a bunch of the Mitchers 10 year stuff, some WhistlePig, 09 10 and 12 Birthday Bourbon and a good bit of EH Taylor Barrel Proof, Rye and Single Barrel. I did get excited, on the bottom shelf, there was a EH Taylor Old Sour Mash tube, glad I opened it though, it had Tornado Survivor in it, I have plenty of that at home. I definitely would have left with the Sour Mash one though if it had of been in there. Glad I opened it. I also stopped at another location and left 2 bottles of the 10 year Bulleit Bourbon on the shelf. 44 bucks was a little expensive for what I have read about it.

    I find myself reaching for the CEHT Sour Mash, Tornado and original Single Barrel much more than any of my BTAC's
