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

    H McK 10 yo BIB would be mine. I'm for screw tops on all spirits, maybe even on wines.

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

    Of the bottles I've had, OGD BIB, OWA 107 and ORVW 107.

    There's an old John Wayne movie where he goes into a bar, orders a bottle of whiskey, turns it upside down and smacks the bottom of the bottle hard enough for the cork to pop out. Can't do that with a screw top! Not that you could do that with a corked bottle in real life, but it was still pretty cool.

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

    The last bottle of KC I had still had a cork, but if they are indeed switching over to screw caps, that would be my pick.

    Honorable mention to OGD BIB, EWB, Fighting Cock, ORVW, and the Wellers.

    Those cork caps make for good magnets, but I just can't abide by them for regular use. Give me a screw cap any time. If they want to make them special, put some sort of embossed logo on them.

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

    Too many for me to pick just one. I have to lump them together in two tiers. Personally, I have a three way tie for Tier#1, and a multi-way tie for Tier #2.

    Tier #1. ER 10/101, ORVW 10/107, and Weller 12.
    Tier #2. BIB's. HH 6 yr White Label BIB, EW BIB, VOB 100 proof, etc....etc....etc....

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

    IMO OWA and Weller 12 have been far more consistent over the years than ORVW 107 so I am going with those two, although I don't have anything against ORVW 107.

    Hey Joe, any chance you'd post the proportions of your Weller blend you had at the sampler? That stuff was delicious.

    Corks are just traditional. Not necessary at all.

    That being said, Weller 12.
