    Not sure specifically about comparing W12 to the W:SR (I always go for the OWA)... but to me, the W12 is smoother and with more barrel (wood) flavor, at the cost of being too thin, likely due to it's much lower proof (again, compared to OWA, not the Special Reserve). Which is why so many of us enjoy the "SB Blend" of mixing OWA and W12.

    Main difference, of course, is age. WSR used to be age stated at 7 yrs. Now no age statement. Both WSR and the 12 are cut to 90 proof but as far as I know all three (counting the OWA) are the same juice just different age or proof.

    They are certainly kindred and each has it's own virtues. The Reserve at 90 proof is arguably the best value, especially for cocktails, the 12 of course offers age but the 107 is my pick of the bunch. You can always flavor a whisky down but you can't flavor one up and the higher proof starts out with the most flavor of the lot.

    Having a pour of OWA 7/107 tonight. If I could find some more of this age stated OWA, I think it would become my daily pour. Very tasty stuff!

    Starting off the night with Russell's Reserve
    Well, how can it not be McCormick's, the $7 well bourbon of the finest dive bars? Tastes like kerosene and sadness.

    Loch & K(e)y selected Elmer T. Lee, neat.

    A nice slow sipper of a whiskey while I watch the Celts try to not lose in the 4th quarter.
