    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    Look at it another way. If Bookers or KCSB were any good would they be so easily attainable? I think the majority of people aren't too impressed by Beam's products, even the high proof ones. Me being one of them.

    I can't speak for the majority of people, but count me as a fan of several Beam products: KC, KC SB, Baker's, Booker's, not to mention OGD BIB and 114. I get upset with the Liquor Gods in OH that keep from getting the Big Three (AAA, VOB & OWA) but I, for one, am glad that those Beam bourbons are "so easily attainable" here.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    Sample of Vintage 17 - somewhat of a letdown, too much hype after it was discontinued. Solid overall pour, but I don't plan to seek out a full bottle.

    +1. Despite seriously disliking low level Beam stuff, I love the upper level stuff!

    I would almost bet that if Booker's, OGD 114, KCSB, etc were to be rationed due to occasional releases (ie, hard to find), then people would look at them much more favorably than they currently do. The whole 'absence makes the heart grow fonder' thing....the fact that they are easily attainable makes them less exciting to own....or brag about, as the case may be. The bourbon producers are no morons, they know that putting 'limited edition' on something, or releasing it only every now and then, makes sales (and prices) go up.

    4R LEsB '13. I figure if the storms knock out power, go out on a high note.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    Started comparing some 4RSBs (before forgetting which one I poured as "A" and "B", so the blind tasting will have to be repeated!). The winner was me though - loved both the OBSV as well as the OESV (diluted to 100 proof). Finishing this dreary Sunday afternoon with some ECBP - just delicious stuff!

    I think you are spot on here. I've been guilty as anyone (with exception of OGD 114) of shunning the upper shelf Beams simply because I know I can without any fear whatsoever of not finding them available just about anytime I want it. If roles were flipped with BTAC, we'd be scrambling around trying to find KCSB & Booker's....funny how us humans are.

    Funny but predictable.
