    I beg to differ.

    Re: What is your favorite bourbon that has a screw cap?

    Amongst screw cappers that I've not seen mentioned, I find KBD's pure kentucky XO is often enjoyable (although the wax hiding the screw cap can be a bitch to remove), along with Beam black, EWB, and paper label WSR.

    Looking through my shelves thinking about caps reminds me it would be cool to see a bourbon in a grolsch-style bottle, like the Los Danzantes/Los Nahuales mezcals. Wonder if there are any.

    Re: What is your favorite bourbon that has a screw cap?

    I have two fav's with screw tops. Wheater: Old Rip 107; Rye Bourbon: Old Grand Dad BIB. Just between us, I'd like to see screw caps on all of 'em. I don't suppose that'll ever come to pass, however. Way too many elitist fools think the cork lends some air of class. It just lends 'air'..... and cork pieces... and broken corks.

    Weller 12..a cork is not needed. Just makes it harder to get open.

    Yeah, it's hard to get a good grip on a cork with teeth.

    It took me a while to figure this thread out, then it hit me, A lot of you guys must actually be putting the cap / cork back after opening the bottle. I've heard of that, just never seen it.

    Re: What is your favorite bourbon that has a screw cap?

    Cork taint doesn't come from an old cork it comes from a piece of cork used that has bacteria in it. The problem was there from the get go not from bunkering the bottle.
