    Re: 25

    I just opened an EC12 and I have a WT open too, and between these two bottles EC wins easily. YMMV of course since both of these are known to be fairly variable.

I don't think I've ever gotten that sweet-spice-sweet from anything under $50 per bottle.
    it's not one of what he was asking about, but I agree with you on FC. But, you have to be a fan of both the HH profile AND like a good kick that seems higher than the proof point indicates. If you ever find yourself with a pour of HH6BIB and enjoying it but thinking to yourself, "I wish this had a bit more bite to it", grab a FC.


    back on topic, its been so long since Ive had either I cant honestly say either way. All I remember is woody for EC12 and typical for WT101

    Re: 25

    I just finished off a WT101 and I have to say I enjoyed it. Not mind blowing but a really good expression of a classic bourbon profile. If a first-timer was curious about what bourbon was like this would be a perfect example.

    A) I did open my post with "since we're throwing out random options".

    B) I already previously answered his direct question.


    So...

    For current bottles my pick would be EC12. If you have access to some older WT101 it would be a toss-up.
