    And that's a generous viewpoint! I coaxed Joel (TNsquire) into tasting it last night -- suffice it to say, I STILL haven't found anyone yet who likes it.

    I've been drinking a lot of SW whiskey lately.....now I'm back to one of my favorites. SW bourbon distilled in March of '92......bottled as VWSR Lot B .......Van Blankle. What's not to like about it?

    Just finished my second neat dram of Bulleit...and wishing I would have read and learned from seasoned experts at SB.com, as they would have saved me from myself. But, alas, it may always be reserved for a mixer for non-so-great company and the inlaws.

    speak for yourself...Bulleit is ok (in my book at least).


    Not a top shelf. But I wouldn't kick it out of my bourbon cabinet. It's a fun bottle, a little bit of a rugged pour, but never the less, a distinct one. I believe I cold pick it out in a tasting (say maybe in September).

    I don't like Bulleit. I have a bottle that I can't wait to finish. It's not the worst out there by any means, but for nearly $30, I know I'll never buy it again.

    But tonight, finished off a bottle of Glenlivet 12 (don't get excited it had 1/2 oz. in when I started ) Then I had a very small taste of Talisker 12, delcious.

    Also, with dinner I had a 2004 Caymus Cab, it was glorious!

    I seem to recall Bulleit being a lot cheaper than $30 in Montgomery County, MD than anywhere else (BTW, this month, MonCo has Rare Breed for $23.99). I like Bulleitt as an archetype (or mixer for serious cocktails--that extra rye edge really helps) more than an everyday dram.

    Today I opened my Very Old Barton BIB 6 y.o.
    I see why VOB is Kentucky's number one seller, good neat or on the rocks.

    Just back from Morton's Steak House. Watched election returns while enjoying a WT Rare Breed and a Woodford Reserve along with a Punch cigar with a couple of friends. Had the mini cheeseburgers with purple onions--AWESOME. Also enjoyed the other scenery at the bar.

    Van Winkle Lot B - Getting close to finishing the bottle. I'm going to have to join the support group soon!

    A lot of people are still talking about Bulleit. I've said a lot of bad things about it this year, but I think a lot of my viewpoints are chalked up to it's high pricetag (at least in my area) it's nearly $30 and it's no where near a $30 whiskey IMO. But it's not as bad as I've claimed it over the months. If it were the price of Buf Trace ($16) It's possible I'd pick it up again, but not at the pricetag, especially since I prefer Buffalo Trace. It's not terrible, but IMO it's not good either. It could work as a mixer and I've been using it lately as a cooking whiskey where to it's credit it adds wonderful flavor to food.
