    I'm having Barton & Soda with emphasis on the former.

    Damn, i'm sad i didn't read this before stopping in there today. Got a bottle of BT instead.

    Having some BMH, i'm just smart enough to figure this HAS to be Beam product. Blind tasting it's OGD BIB.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    Finished a blind tasting of BT vs ER. Found them incredibly similar. Preferred the nose on the ER if I had to pick one (just ever-so-slightly more complex?) and preferred the palate on the BT if I had to pick one (it was a bit softer with the caramel more up-front). Makes me wonder if this is an incredibly ordinary ER, or if the two are typically this close.

    Close enough that I stopped buying the ER.

    Had to work this morning due to 40,000 Boy Scouts invading WV for the next 10-14 days. Snuggling up with AAA 10YR ... nothing like having an old friend to listen to your complaints.

    Interesting. I always pick up more oak in the ER and more corn in the BT, even in blind tastings. Never really considered them to be similar in taste, but maybe I need to revisit...

    While admittedly, I have add less ER than BT, my impression was the same. I have actually tasted them side-by-side. However, while I liked the ER a little more, there wasn't enough of a preference to opt for ER over BT. Of course, cost plays a role.

    A little SB Blend. As squire says, you can't really mess this up!
