    Four Roses has 10 different mash bills -- 2 yeasts times 5 grain bills. The Four Roses that makes up the single-barrel, the small batch, and the standard 'yellow label', all are different combinations (or not, in the case of the single-barrel) of whiskeys. So, too, is Bulliet. I like the ones labeled as "Four Roses". I don't care for the configuration called "Bulliet".
    Re Gary: it's certainly possible -- because my experience with Bulliet is not very positive and, thus, limited -- that I haven't found anything but that which you call "just ordinary". Of course, palates differ, too, and I allow for the fact that we just like different things occasionally, in spite of the fact we also often like the same things.

    Re: Bulleit Frontier bourbon

    Tim, if I come across a particularly good sample, I'll save it for you to taste at Sampler next. Ontario has Bulleit in stock currently, so maybe I'll find a particularly good one soon.

    I will try to give you something as good (in its way) as the sample of barrel strength, 21 year old Van Winkle bourbon you kindly provided to me at the party. It was absolutely superb: Doug got a taste too, and agreed. I marvelled at the charcoal specks floating in the bourbon, I've had unfiltered bourbons before but do not recall ever seeing such palpable evidence of it!

    Good to know, Gary (and Doug) -- I consider that barrel sample as good a bourbon as I've consumed, including similar samples from Warehouse Z (Ridgemont Reserve) and the uncut Rittenhouse single-barrel rye. I applaud Julian's dedication to Pappy's "...But always fine bourbon" credo.

    Re: Bulleit Frontier bourbon

    Bulleit is one of just five better-than-average bourbons available in my area, the others being Knob Creek, Woodford Reserve, Maker's Mark and Blanton's Special Reserve, all of which are at least $10 more than Bulleit. Having never had the opportunity to try the likes of Elijah Craig, Buffalo Trace, George T. Stagg, etc., maybe I simply have no concept of what the rest of you folks call "good bourbon". I guess that's why I'm more of a Scotch drinker now.

    Yes. That's part of the appeal, I think.
