Don't you all like variety? Instead of this board being called straightbourbon.com we should just call it SW.com or Stitzel&Weller.com. I realize that SW is very good but geez there are so many other good bourbons available to us all today. Of course, most people seem to avoid the current bottlings like the plague, that is until they become near extinct and everyone will be driving to the ends of the Earth to find them.
My feeling is, we live in a great time for bourbon. Enjoy variety and what's currently out there. There's some damned fine bourbon to be had that currently being bottled.
VOL, I'm certainly not calling you out, I just needed to vent after reading your SW comments. I hope you don't take it personally.

(For myself, I think they did a great job with their mashbill handicap, though )
It's not so surprising, though, that a thread titled "Weller Centennial & Weller 12" has a lot of SW talk.
As I've written often, day in and day out, I'll take ND Grand Dad and Taylor, but that's for another thread.

As soon as these bottlings are collected, I'll be more than happy to administer and collect the results of a double blind study.
