    What is your favorite bourbon that has a screw cap?

    Most bourbons have a cork top, but some have a screw cap, Makers Mark being just one.

    At the risk of not adding much to this thread, I would have to say that ORVW 107 is tops for me, followed closely by the SB blend (made from equal parts OWA and Weller12) as a very close second.

    I'd also have to go with ORVW as well in terms of what I have in my collection. Apparently Knob Creek Single Barrel converted from cork to screw tops (I hadn't bought one in a while, but while on the tour we noticed them using screw tops). If I had one of those, that might be my favorite - although apparently it will be short lived (tour guide mentioned the "uproar" is leading to them moving back to corks, despite them being more expensive).

    The wine side has been interesting with the cork screw top debate. I think there is a place for both in wine, some wines need a cork for long term aging while other wines intended for immediate drinking. Seen people turn their noses up at nice wines because of a screw top. On the spirits side though, I think I would just prefer screw tops all around. There is no aging here and corks can really screw up a bottle. When I put an expensive bottle in the bunker, I'd hate to visit it a couple years from now to find it corked.
