    Hi Empire

    www.thewhiskyexchange.com

    IMHO the regular BT is not the best BT product. I prefer Eagle Rare 10

    I've bought it in Sainsbury's and they sell it at my local off licence in Bristol.

    My favourite Bourbon.

    Cheers,

    B.

    The Sainsbury's I get BT from is the one in Bristol near Bristol parkway and the Frenchay campus of UWE - its a big one and has some great Scotch as well.

    I've seen Knob Creek, Rebel Yell, and WT 8yr old 101 in * Safeway * supermarkets. These are all really good, especially the WT - my life was incomplete until I tried this one

    Good luck and cheers,

    Bamber.

    No eagle rare

    ... I plan to order some next week off the net.

    I have seen lots of the Knob Creek around, haven't got round to trying it yet. WT is very good, tried it first time about 2 years ago and it was great. Having a look on this forum makes me want to go out to the States and get hold of some of these, lots of ones I've never heard of. U.K. is quite poor for choice on these don't you think?

    They are lucky - especially with the price - but thewhiskyexchange has some great stuff and drinkfinder.co.uk is also pretty good.

    The rest of Europe and Australia have a much tougher time of it.

    When your next in London check out the Vintage House on Old Compton Street (nr Leicester square).

    Getting back to BT - this was the whisky that swung me from being a Scotch drinker who liked Bourbon to a Bourbon drinker who likes Scotch. Definitely worth trying.

    Cheers,

    Bamber.

    Re: buffalo trace

    Nice one Bamber, Cheers! I have enjoyed the bourbon for awhile, but has only been recently that I've decided to look outside the usual Jim Beam etc, first heard of BT in a bartender mag and have heard nothing but good reviews since then, so I am keen to taste, how does taste compare to JB?

    Re: buffalo trace

    how does taste compare to JB?
    Very very different. Much more rye and citrus character (BT), none of that oily licorice (JB). I'm warming to JB black (after enjoying Booker's a great deal) but JB is not my cup of tea really.

    With regards Milroys - great selection but complete rip off.

    Stagg 2003 - 105 = $193 (they are now out of stock)
    Sazerac - 80 = $ 147 (this is quite outrageous).

    Milroy's is kind of snobby but the guy knows his booze, whereas in the vintage house you are on your own - they seem to know very little about American whisky - but they are friendly.

    Another shop in London www.coventgardenwhiskyshop.co.uk (I've not been there).

    Also check this link:

    Anyway cheers,

    Bamber.
