    Trade it to some one that wants to make a bong. The contents are incidental.

    I wouldn't mix that crap with whiskey man, lemonade maybe. But not whiskey

    Its not bad stuff. A bit of piling on happening right now. Since it is a single barrel, variations will happen.

    Yeah not the greatest stuff, but definitely not the unredeemable swill that people try to pass it off as either. It's a silly f@ckin bottle that is a pain to have around, but IMO the profile reminds somewhat of ER10 SB, and I've had similarly variable experiences with both ranging from very good to forgettable, but clearly YMMV.

    Willett Pot Still - How come we never discuss it?

    I guess I'm the odd man out here. I like the bourbon (damn drinkable IMO) .. The bottle (always a conversation starter on my shelf) .. And I'm an admirer of the Kulsveen family business out Loretto Rd.

    Can this many bourbon guys really think this juice is shit or, IS it piling on? Wouldn't be the first time here. Apparently there's some history folks can't put behind them.

    Someday maybe.

    Ok so the "pot still reserve" is one of the most embellished marketing ploys I've seen. It's not a bottle that I'm gonna buy. I'm sure that I buy stuff others wouldn't buy. I do like how KBD operates in that they put a workhorse brand out there to pay for the interesting single barrels that have some very high points. That's probably how I would do it if I had the chance.

    I believe others have brought this up before. Probably the reason enthusiasts tend to be dismissive about this brand is that it is named "Pot Still' and the contents of the bottle do not come from a pot still.

    Haha, my wording was a bit harsh the other day. Sorry about that, I should never post while in a bad mood. Definitely a bottle from the dessert end of the spectrum. A nice flavor when I'm in the mood for it.

    Willett Pot Still - How come we never discuss it?

    Friday, a guy told me this was better than any of the regular Weller's. He highly recommended it as one of the best affordable wheated bourbons. What's the complaint about this bourbon here (contents, not bottle)?
