    Re: Elmer T. Lee SB, Jeffersons PR SB, Blanton's, Rock Hill Farms?

    Rock Hill is certainly my fave of the bunch, by a fairly wide margin, even if I don't always have it handy. ETL and AAA on the other hand can always be found at my house.

    Also you can have an ETL and a AAA for the price of one RHF.

    ...because I can get almost 2 bottles of ETL for the same price. Guess I need to bite the bullet and get some.

    Maybe I just didn't have a good pour of RHF (or it was after too many good pours . . . which could have been the case!) I've tried Blantons more than once, and each time thought it was OK, but not worth the money - but maybe need to give RHF another shot!

    It's all good Gary, I will cheerfully drink any of them.

    Elmer T. Lee SB, Jeffersons PR SB, Blanton's, Rock Hill Farms?

    Of this mash bill, AAA 10 yr and RHF are my favorites.

    I figured most would say Blanton's by a landslide,I would also have to say RHF's is my pick of the bunch.I have had some that are a bit grassy,but others that are just really great with a sour apple note that I've never had in any other bourbon that always stays fresh in my mind.I think the Hancock's is ultra fruity and and the oddity to the group,not bad just not to my taste.I will also have to agree with the group as AAA 10yr is a great value pour and one I almost always have on hand,open and ready to pour!

    I knew I loved Squire, I just knew it. I'm 100% with you, man. RHF is my favorite bourbon out there, it's so complex and delish. I really want K&L to do another private barrel selection of it.....man, that makes me thirsty just thinking about it.

    I'm not surprised to see Blanton's not getting much oxygen WW. It's always been a label here that gets slated with the too expensive tag.

    My terms of reference are a bit limited as I've only had the Blanton's and the RHF. Not too interested in the ~$90 buy in on ETL here to expand my experience

    RHF is undoubtedly the more complex whiskey for me but I think Blanton's excels in what it tries to be. I'm reaching for the Blanton's 4:1 compared to RHF because the Blanton's is just such a good "comfort" bourbon. RHF seems a more challenging pour that if not given due attention you miss a lot of what is going on in the glass.

    These days I guess I prefer to drink whiskey more than I like to taste whiskey.

    Re: Elmer T. Lee SB, Jeffersons PR SB, Blanton's, Rock Hill Farms?

    I do have a fondness for the Age mashbill but I don't buy it that often. I've had a bottle of RHF open since November and it is deep and complex but very subtle. Almost muted in a way. I thought it might open up with time but it hasn't yet. I just bought a ETL last week, though, and it drinks bigger than that RHF, even at lower proof. Now obviously single barrel variations may play a role, but to compare these two, I would say, I like the what this RHF aspires to, but I think the ETL is better executed.

    I do love the RHF decanter bottle. That will get refilled with other juice once it's gone.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.
