    Boy, this was a hard one. I know I started it, but still...

    I voted for Buffalo Trace, but I would often be found crying into my bourbon missing all my other friends ig I really had to choose.

    Wow. Someone was quick on the keyboard. Someone voted before I got my second post in. I know I am a slow typist, but Geeze! Oh, and sorry about the typo in the subject line.

    Wow!

    That is a real "gun to the head" type question. I voted BT as well Ed; the floods of tears I would cry over no more VW and WT do not bear thinking about!

    Mind you I'm sure a hefty slug of RHF or GTS could help ease the pain! (I was always a quick healer!)

    I had to go with Buffalo Trace but I would find someone to trade with for some Rare Breed.

    I wanted to go Wild Turkey, I really did! But they discontinued RR101 and don''t sell the 12yo domestically.

    I would have gone with Buffalo Trace, but they dropped ER101 and the Antique Collection doesn't come to where I live, neither does BT itself even though the distillery is owned by a company out of LA.

    So give me some "other"-KBD.

    As long as you have good whiskey you're not "unemployed", you're "Funemployed!!!"

    While I'm still a fledgling Bourbon-Fiend, I had to vote VW.
    It's just too good to go without!

    KBD...OTHER

    Mostly, because I believe that they are positioned so uniquely to not only source good barrels from the bulk market, but to craft good whiskey when the stills come online.

    With the column still and the pot still, either separate or in conjunction with each other, the combinations of spirit that can be produced is unlimited...especially when you consider the mash bill and yeast combinations that can be created.

    There is an added bonus...they are not owned by a big parent company, there is no "bean counter" or marketing department telling them they cannot do something...just imagine the new flavor profiles and small batch whiskies waiting to be created.

    The future at the Willett will be VERY interesting!!!!!!!

    Just can't wait to taste their whiskey...

    KBD isn't distilling yet (sadly) and Van Winkle isn't distilling any more (sadly). Perhaps an update to the poll is necessary (sadly).

    For now, BT. Let's hope the energy behind Handy and WLW translates to more 100+ proof and less 90 proof stuff in the future .

    Heaven Hill because:

    - Bettye Jo works there

    - it makes fine bourbon such as EC 18 year old, McKenna Single Barrel, EWSB

    - it sells Rittenhouse BIB for very little considering its quality

    - it is an independent, family owned business.
