    Re: If you can only buy one bottle of the BTAC...

    Get the WLW... both for its taste (it's sensational) and for its scarcity.

    Re: If you can only buy one bottle of the BTAC...

    The consensus seems to be the '06 WLW is much better than last year's. I still have three '05 WLWs bunkered from last year. To be honest I have only drank about half of the one I opened. I was so disappointed with last year's release I didn't order any of this year's. When I have a hankerin' for a wheater I reach for the Weller Antique.

    If you are very fond of Weller antique/Weller 12 by all means go for the WLW '06 otherwise run don't walk back to the store and get the Handy (assuming you like rye). If you don't particularly like rye and the Weller antique/Weller 12 doesn't float your boat for God's sake at least get the Stagg! If you like bourbon you wont be disappointed!

    1) Weller is you prefer wheaters
    2) Stagg if not (unless you have a previous Stagg)
    3) Then do ER

    Re: If you can only buy one bottle of the BTAC...

    I think this question is completely unfair. It's like asking a thirsty starving man to pick between water or bread.....both are the right choice but one without the other leaves you wanting.....

    ...and I want them ALL!
