I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.
I don't read bloggers, or other opinion speakers for that matter, unless I like their writing style. Originality is rare, thousands have tried to copy Mark Twain or William Faulkner but we don't remember their names.
We're Bourbon Geeks, it's who we are, it's what we do.
I really don't like the very young profile of current OWA and WSR. Weller 12 is the only BT whiskey I buy. Still love it, really love it....but am aware that BT will take it away at any moment to give it to PVW stocks so g^^^%% f&^%$ b&^%$ who just collect bourbon but don't drink it can buy it.
I just split a case from Internet Wines & Spirits. IMO the Weller 12 is one of the great values in bourbon today, great for mixing, and even good for sipping. This will probably be gone by mid-2014, so get yours now if you gotta have it!
I saw 3 or 4 bottles out in the county where I live. No need to pick one up since I currently have two. Cannot be found anywhere in Nashville.
