    I somewhat concur with your assessment although I think the 20 is far and away better than the 12.

    Indeed, I'm currently enjoying a pour of a current Old Fitz BIB, and even it is far better than its price might suggest - enough so that it's one of my "keep a bottle on hand" bourbons. I'd love to get my paws on a Stitzel-Weller bottle to see how it compares.

    Before the Old Fitz BIB, I had a lovely WT Rye Manhattan.
    Oh no! You have walked into the slavering fangs of a lurking grue!

    On the contraary, I find the 15 much more complex and enjoyable than the 20.

    When I said the 15 was oakier, It wasn't a criticism. I find oak to a valueable attribute in the balance of a good whisky. I also find the 15 greater in complexity.

    Tonight I started off with Wild Turkey Tribute. I absolutely love that stuff. It may be my favorite bourbon of all time. The downside is that its so good I'm racing through my bottle. And I can't replace it!

    Now I'm off to Lot B, which is still very very good and a lot cheaper and easier to get ahold of.

    Next I think I'll try a vatting (simple just made in my glass) of a few of my whiskeys. Possibly Lot B, Pappy 15, Black Maple Hills and we'll see.

    Does anyone else make mixtures?

    Last night some Bookers! A very complex whiskey full of oak and oranges in this bottle. Makes me cry that I can't get any Wild Turkey bottlings apart from the 80% abv bottlings...

    Ooohh wait - I can get Rare Breed in a few stores. Hmmmm...

    [quote=Ambernecter]RHF is my number 1 and I don't see that changing anytime soon.

    EC12 and Evan Williams SB are faves of quite a few members on here but I don't care for them at all. [quote]

    i agree with this statement here except for the EWSB. i am revisiting the EC12 right now, third time, can't place it. just not MY bourbon to be drinking...

    Heaven Hill BIB right now- best $11 bourbon in the world, I reckon. Old Forester 100 is on deck, with a little trepidation, as many here don't seem to like it. Some list it as a favorite, though, and if I like it, the price is absolutely right. If I don't like it, EC12 costs about the same.

    I really like Old Forester 100, though I thought it was a little better before the introduction of the Birthday Bourbon. Could be all in my head though...
