    Re: Which do you prefer?

    I prefer the ETL over the ER, however that is only after finishing 1 bottle of each.
    Two wrongs don't make a right, but three lefts do.

    Re: Which do you prefer?

    I can't vote as I'm yet to try either. (they're on my list of 'to buy')
    From all of the tasting notes I've read, I'd have to say ETL sounds like the one I'd prefer

    Re: Which do you prefer?

    I don't care fort the licorice (or should I say "liquorice") notes on the ER. So my vote was firmly planted on ETL. BTW, ER was once 101 proof; but not the SB I don't believe.

    I'm firmly on the fence with this poll... not voting. I've loved both when I've had them...
    Oh no! You have walked into the slavering fangs of a lurking grue!

    Ditto. I like them both equally. I'll have to abstain (from voting).

    I have only had one bottle of the ER SB, but the one thing I do remember is that it had more heat, and more alcohol taste than I was accustomed to at the time. Of course I was also drinking it next to EW SB, and it was the most expensive bottle of Bourbon I had ever purchased up to that point. Which is to say that I was still a relative virgin.

    I can't vote, since my state does not sell ETL, and I have yet to try it, but I will be giving the ER SB another shot in the near future.

    Re: Which do you prefer?

    Both are quality drops no question...

    I voted for ETL in a heartbeat though - I've drunk alot of this stuff in the last 3 years or so and it's always been SUPER!!

    There is a sweetness/smoothness in ETL that really hits the spot for me every time. After the struggle of breaking the wax seal on ETL it's all good...

    I guess good whiskey really does tickle my pickle!

    My vote is for the ER 10, I love that Maple Syrup flavor.

    Re: Which do you prefer?

    I don't know if it's just the bottle I got a hold of, or if it's the change in my palate. But the last 2 bottles of ETL (gold wax) have been way too sweet for me. I think it's a good pour, but it's almost syrupy at times. I voted ER but I've been sipping on a barrel program selection bottle, so it may not be representative of the usual product.

    I find the ETL to vary from barrel to barrel. When I find a bottle I really like I go back and clear off the shelf.

    Bourbon makes me happy.
