    Best of 2006

    My pick is the 2006 William Larue Weller. It’s an amazing bourbon with a remarkable finish that goes on and on. The sweet nose and taste even shine through the added harshness and woodiness that the char I accidentally poured into this glass has. The supposed origin of this particular bourbon is an added bonus, provided it’s true.

    Just wondering what everyone’s favorite for last year was. Out of all the different kinds that you tried last year, which one stands out to you the most? It doesn't have to be something that was new last year, just something that was new to you.

    Well, seeing as all Bourbon was new to me last year, I am going to have to go with my holy grail. ORVW 15/107

    I thought this had been verified by Chris Comstock at Buffalo Trace?
    Man, I hope it's true... especially now that I've got a few bottles safely tucked away...

    It was a 3-way tie for me between WTRB, WT12 & Blanton's. Why it took me so long on the RB & Blanton's, I can't explain. Now, the WT12......just took me a long while to find one. I branched out a lot in 2006. Looking forward to continuing the trend in 07.

    I agree, the new WLW '06 is outstanding. The other great new pour of 2006 was FR SB.

    I'd extend the honor to the whole '06 BTAC.

    Ugh...I don't want to pick. There are so many fine choices. the Lot B and Hirsch really bowled me over. I must say though that he WLW '06 is mighty fine. I tried it for the first time at the KBF last year and had to have a bottle. ER17, Wathens SB, Vintage 17, Old Pogue, GTS, Saz......forget it, I can't pick.

    Being a novice most of what I have had has been new to me. WT101, BT, OG BIB, and Harpers Gold medal stand out. My so called bunker (can two bottles be called a bunker?) hold Old Weller 107 and Harpers 15 yr. I think 07 will be a time of new found knowledge and even more bourbon.

    Happy New Year to all,
