    Re: Top 5 Bourbons I've Had In The Last Year

    I'm going with the my standard EC 12, then ECBP, EWSB, ETL, and Bookers... No disrespect to KCBP, OGD 114, OC10, or AAA.

    I know that you like higher proof bourbons but just curious whether you have tried OC10. I really like it. I was wondering how it compares to Charter 101.

    Re: Top 5 Bourbons I've Had In The Last Year

    It was about Christmas when I started getting into bourbon, so my year is really only about 9 months:

    1. WLW '11
    2. Michter's 10yo
    3. PVW 15yo
    4. JPS18
    5. WhipperSnapper

    Rye mentions: THH'12 & Delilah's 15yo.

    Looking forward to WLW'13, FRSmB'13 and anything else interesting that might come my way.

    i have not tried old charter 10. i know it sounds odd to most people on here, but i flat out wont buy anything under 100 proof. i have found absolutely nothing under 100 that i enjoy, so i stopped buying that category altogether. i have heard a lot of good talk about charter 10. seems few people know about charter 101. i bought it just on a whim, not really expecting much. i just thought it would be a good way to try BT at 101 proof. i was really surprised by it. so far, i really like it. by the time the bottle is gone though, that may change......its happened before. not the best out there, but at its price, its hard to beat.

    You are an interesting man with some interesting rules.

    Re: Top 5 Bourbons I've Had In The Last Year

    I don't know if you've tried it, and I don't know if it's always available, but TPS did private single barrel offerings of Charter 101 in the past and they are the B+ to the standard bottles B-. $35 or so and only available in handles, but definitely the best value bourbon I've had. The absolute best, Virgin 101 being a close second.

    Re: Top 5 Bourbons I've Had In The Last Year

    In no particular order:

    1. FRsB '12
    2. WLW '12
    3. PHC '12
    4. Bowman LE (Barrel Strength Bourbon, not the GS version)
    5. ORVW 10/90

    Hell of a year. Hope to be able to find at least a few of the Fall releases, so far...flippers seem to be winning.
