    Certainly thought that this BOTM would get so much more comment. Like it or not, RHF deserves much more debate and discussion. Being a Single Barrel, surely some variation is to be expected.

    I attempted to obtain a bottle on Saturday to try this but my local was sold out. The worse part was they didn't know if they'd be getting any more! So instead a picked up EWSB '96 but I've yet to try it.

    I just finished my regular round up of European online shops and came to the conclusion that it is not as available as it used to be.

    Wild speculations on my behalf but could RHF have been given a lower priority after G.G.:s retirement?
    Delighted to see you if you can find me!

    Maybe it's the SB and I just got a slightly off one, but after a good 8 visits this month I just never became overly impressed with this bourbon. Sorry RHF you just didn't cut it for me...

    Now what is next, is it time for suggestions yet? I am about out of Peter Jake's and think my last bottle was a little off, I DO need to buy another bottle or two of VWSR12 lot b, still haven't had a good enough reason to buy ORVW 10yr 107 YET! I'd have an excuse to order a few bottles of AAA if it was ever the BOTM, if Hirsch was it'd give me a reason to buy and taste another foil bottle, Weller Centenial would give me an excuse to go spend the money on those with the Louisville label, haven't had Kentucky Spirit in a while... Sorry just thinking on the keyboard...

    I bought a bottle of RHF about 2 years ago and I liked it so much that after about two drinks, I put on my mantle and I save it for special occassions. That bottle is nearly empty now and pretty soon I am going to get a new one to replace it.

    I tend to get in moods for different bourbons so to call it my absolute favorite is not quite accurate, but it is a great bourbon.

    Posting late on this one but would like to get my dibs in. I don't have a bottle but tasted it at Talbott's recently and still have a clear impression of the taste. It was rich, cakey, fine-flavored, showing some wood notes but well-integrated in the whole. It is certainly a luxurious taste. Some might find it a little bland (expensive, refined spirits sometimes are) but I think it needs to be consumed neat and probably after dinner. I could see it going well with those cigars that were in fine form at Gazebo recently.

    Re: BOTM, 4/06: Rock Hill Farms

    Posting late here indeed. I finally found a bottle of RHF today, and after reading all of the positive comments here was anxious to try it. After retuning home I had a small taste. (Hey it's only 3:00 here) First impression..excellent. I will withhold final judgement until later. I am quite frustrated at the difficulty I had opening the bottle!! After using brut strength the top finally came off. It seems there was some type of glue(?) around the top rim. The cork was damaged in the process, and now I worry about a good seal. I may have to resort to a mason jar to protect the stuff. Anybody esle had this problem with RHF? I have never experienced this before with any bottle! Ok I feel a little better now!
    Maybe tonight I can enjoy a pour.

    I had and have a problem opening my RHF bottle. Seems the thin cork layer dries out and causes the difficulty. Just a guess on my part. But the stuff inside the bottle is well worth the effort. RHF is my favorite...but is very scarce in these parts (Southwest Arkansas).

    Don't feel too bad. I had to travel two states away (to Kentucky) to get mine.
