    Brian, you mean Joshua Brook is actually for drinking? I bought a bottle at a local discount liquor and cigarette store for I think about 6 bucks from the bargain bin and the guy at the counter shuddered as he asked me if I was actually going to drink it. Scared the bejezzus outta me so I haven't even opened it. Figured he might have heard someone went blind on the stuff or something...

    I don't drink to excess. But I'll drink to most anything else.

    You are very right on this one. WT101 comes close to Knob Creek in taste yet is $10 less in price where I live.

    I didn't base anything on price, just my taste buds, that stuff is a bargain!

    Well, you convinced me to give it a try. Maybe during Thursday night chat so that if I drop out for a while someone can dial 911....

    Not even read what you guys have posted... I'll do that after I post my picks, pretty much in order of my faves.

    1. RHF
    2. GTS '03 (I still have 2 bottles of this!)
    3. VW Lot B
    4. Booker's
    5. VWFRR 13 YO
    6. Hirsh 16
    7. WT 12 YO
    8. WT 1855 Reserve
    9. ORVW 10YO/107
    10. Elmer T Lee.

    Honourable mentions go to...

    Bakers, Eagle Rare 17, Rowan's Creek, George Dickle 12YO and ORVW 15YO/107 - this last one is very good but the finish is way too dry for me compared to it's younger cousin.

    I'm off to see what all the rest of you chose. I'll likely kick myself when I see what I forgot!

    I see I need to move Bookers into position 8, but my computer boots me from the net every time I hit the edit button

    Great Job!!! Appreciate very much you keeping up with this long running post. As we have discussed in the past, I enjoy seeing the rankings and watching them change from time to time. What is interesting - but not surprising, is the #1 position remaining unrelinquished thus far by ORVW15. It only surprises me that the lead is not greater. Being a huge fan of VW and WT, I cannot disagree with either one being on top!

    Thanks again for your diligence in this regard,
    Wayne
