    Re: Your Next Bourbon Purchase

    I want to try some Elmer T. Lee, so maybe that. Or Blanton's. Also curious about Mellow Corn and Bernheim Straight Wheat, though I realize they're not bourbons. I can only find the latter locally.

    Re: Your Next Bourbon Purchase

    I am running low on the regular 4RSmB and really coming to enjoy it as a daily pour. So I think this will be next.

    Best regards, Tony

    My local will no longer be carrying Barton so I must carefully consider my next purchase.

    Re: Your Next Bourbon Purchase

    That's good stuff at a great price. Thanks for recommending it. Do you buy premium or "ultra" premiums often?

    A replacement bottle of ETL is next on my list and I still have yet to try Larceny.

    Save yourself some $$$ and go with the ETL and Mellow Corn. Blanton's is good, but IMHO a bit overpriced. Same with the Bermheim. Cheers! Joe

    Re: Your Next Bourbon Purchase

    I was thinking about picking up a bottle of the John J. Bowman TPS Barrel #45 this weekend. Anyone have any thoughts on this one? I've only had the Bowman Brothers SmB at a bar once, and really enjoyed it. Is there any similarities?

    I'm on my third bottle. It's sweet, chewy, smoky, and woody. All in a very good way. I only wish it were barrel proof instead of 100 proof. All in all, a very nice pour. You won't be disappointed

    Thanks, appreciate the input! Maybe I'll wait until the next time I've visiting with my brother-in-law to split a bottle of Blanton's. Less money out of pocket, still get to try it. Been wanting to pick up ETL for a while now, but something else always catches my eye. Mellow Corn isn't expensive at all, it's just a matter of finding it out here.

    What if ETL and Blanton's are the same price, tho? I want to try ETL, but right now I've taken a STAB at my topper set.

    Re: Your Next Bourbon Purchase

    If they're the same price buy one this month and the other next month. ELT is a little sweeter, richer, and Blanton's is dryer and a touch more refined. Both are good in their own way and you should have the chance to enjoy both. Which one first is the only real choice.
