    Didn't say I'd meet the end sober.

    I can't read. Tasting Devil's Cut caused me to go blind.

    Re: I'm Most Ashamed I've Never Tried...

    There are a several common pours that I haven't tried. However, I can't say that I am ashamed. I don't believe that I have ever had any Jim Beam labels. I have had other Beam products but no Jim Beam labels. I have never had Booker's. There are also higher end bourbons that I haven't tried but I either can't find them or can't afford them.

    As was said up thread, can't try what you can't find in your area. Not "ashamed", but would like to try a EW White Label or a FC103. Recently found an Old Heaven Hill 8 yo that I'm looking forward to trying -

    to me, EWW tastes nearly identical to HH white 6 year BIB.

    the FC103 is worth trying. i resisted for quite a while, thinking it would taste like all the other 100ish proof HH stuff. its similar, but, to me at least, has less of the HH house taste and feels a bit hotter than 103 proof. I plan to buy it again.

    I expect HH created the flavor profile to suit the image though I wish they had keep the 8 year age statement.

    I've never had any of the Four Roses products. Where should I start?

    I recommend the regular Small Batch which is a combination of four of the 4R mash bills and to my taste is balanced, flavorful, fully aged and reasonably priced. It also shows the house character to advantage.

    Thanks for the recommendation. It's reasonably priced too.

    I can also suggest either the yellow label 80 proof, or the regular 100 proof single barrel.
