    Completely agree about regular ol' BT. It's pretty much my go-to at this point.

    Apparently JoeyWorld extends up through northern Illinois... I agree completely with you. Especially loving the private barrel picks that a number of stores around here have done the last 4 years.

    With all due respect to a Bourbonian of the Year, I don't think I ever wanna hear about your "Joey Button" again.

    Rumor has it that it's rather small but really cute

    The only bottle of ER10 I've had was a gift shop one. Those say they're selected by Harlan Wheatley so I don't know if they're significantly different from regular bottles. That one struck me as just an extra-aged bottle of BT.Given that, I would start with BT and give ER10 a try when it's on sale.

    Although NAS, I thought BT was 8-9 yrs on average, so the ER10 in addition to single barrel variation might be a year or so older.

    That just brought an image to mind that demands another drink ...

    Re: Er10 & bt

    Here, BT is $24 and ER10 is $35. I bought an ER10 just to try and can't finish the bottle. It's hot from start to finish, sweet and thin, with a bitter, smoky finish. I just don't like it. The only way I'll finish it is as a mixer. The BT I've had has been better, much better. Try and learn.

    This pretty much sums it up for me too. I dont mind ER in a manhattan, a good sweet vermouth does balance nicely.
