    I guess that with the proliferation of bourbon bloggers on the internet, they have to get their information somewhere. There is nothing we can do if this site is the source of their "expertise".

    All of the most popular bloggers get their info here. That's why I've quit reading most of them. The only reason to read other blogs now is to see their tasting notes. My personal tastes line up more with a couple of people from this site though...
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Re: Weller 12 flying off the shelves?

    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.

    Re: Weller 12 flying off the shelves?

    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 really enjoyed Jason Pyle on Sourmashmanifesto but I think he is in semi retirement from blogging

    I buy one here and there to keep in my "time capsule" closet.

    My Mom was a Weller "sipper" in the 80's. I wish she still had a bottle or two laying around.

    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.
