    Re: BOTM, 6/07: Jim Beam Black

    Howdy,

    Having tried JBW, JBB and some WT101 for my nightcaps for the last two months, I'd have to rank 'em as follows:

    1. Jim Beam Black by a razor over WT101. A virtual tie.
    2. WT101. A good, stout poor. Sends me to bed with a buzz.
    3. JBW. Cheap, but rough around the edges. Not quite as smooth as JBB.

    PS: Of course, I always have 1.5-2.0 oz. of bourbon w/ Diet coke on ice. I've sipped my Bourbon "neat", but really can't stand it that way. YMMV, and surely will.

    Actually, I haven't always said that. I used to say it was 90 proof version of Booker's.
    Crazy. I was reading through this thread before I posted anything, but I was going to say the same thing. Booker's is my favorite, and JBB for me is the affordable version with the punches pulled. When I envision a standard, "Platonic" Bourbon, I think of JBB. Goes great with chocolate chip cookies, too.
