    Re: BOTM poll

    You got me. I did not see the 2 vote maximum. So, with that said, I would go for BT and EWSB '95. Now, I'll go back, and to make sure vote for those two a couple of dozen times. JUST KIDDING! By the way, the 1792 dissapointed me, but if it were to win, I am more than willing to give it another try.

    Re: BOTM poll

    You know, the more I read people's posts concerning Bakers and that there is little said about it, the more I think it's a great BOTM. With so little written, people get a chance to drink it with no preconceived notions in their head, almost a blind tasting. Shame too because it is a fine bourbon eclipsed by it's stronger sibling Booker's, it's highly marketed sibling Knob Creek, and it's reasonable priced sibling Beam Black. Did I mention that I voted for it and it alone?

    Re: BOTM poll

    It just showed up recently in Ohio. It's very good. If you get a chance, try it!!
    Thanks for the tip! I will certainly buy it if I can find it. Hopefully it wonīt prove to be as elusive as that blasted VOB which I have been trying to lay my hands on for years now. Maybe the message that should be read into this is : travel to Kentucky?

    Barton have, at least in terms of whiskey, an extremely low profile in Europe and their "proletarian" image doesnīt endear them to the specialist shops over here.Anyway, I wonīt give up, thatīs for sure.

    To veer on topic again : I still feel that BT would be the better choice. Weīve already had a member of the Beam small batch collection but if I remember right, no products whatsoever from Buffalo Trace.

    I wouldnīt protest wildly about Bakerīs, though. It was almost a year since I last had a bottle at home and this would provide me with a good excuse of getting a new one.

    My understanding is VOB is the number one selling Bourbon in Ky and almost unavailable outside Ky.....



    But, that RR1792 is very similar (haven't seen VOB so can't affirm that)

    VOB is available in Tennessee in 80, 86, 90 and 100 (BIB) proofs, in all sizes.
    Frankly, I find it kinda ordinary, and not like Ridgewood (the only bottle I have open) Reserve at all, which I do like (though not love). Bill Friel, Barton's retired master distiller who 'designed' RR1792, told me at the Festival last year that RR is a marriage of three different mashbills -- only one of which could be VOB.

    Thank for clarifying, Tim. Makes sense to me. AND - I like RR1792 very much!

    Cheers,
