As somewhat of a newbie, a year or so into my passion for truly good bourbon, I've gotta tip my hat to the folks at BT for a superb bourbon. There are other bourbons I like a bit more than ER, but I have found none yet that can approach the bottle to bottle consistency. EC 12, EC 18, even my beloved FR SB show a bit more bottle to bottle variation than the ER. I realize that sometimes this is a good thing, occasionally yeilding a great bottle, but I have yet to find a bottle of ER SB that wasn't simply as wonderful as the last bottle. A truly fine, dependable pour in my opinion. Yours?
