They're more alike than different, I rank them in the top class of 'straight bourbon' regardless of price, reputation, etc. The Michter's is interesting because its aged in used bourbon barrels and as such cannot be called 'straight bourbon.' The Woodford double oak is fine enjoyed neat, but IMO is best in Old Fashioneds which balances out the heavy oak notes.
    Yes I knew EH Taylor Buffalo Trace Pappy and Eagle Rare were the same distillery. I was lucky enough to win 2 lotteries for Eagle Rare 17 year old 2012. Best bourbon I have ever had. Michter's I have never had don't why but since you mention it I will get out and try it maybe retry some others. It's been awhile you get used to what you like.
    Thanks for your take.

    I agree. But you'll have to admit, Riedel's are a much better glass to use when entertaining your more heavy handed friends and relatives... And then for some others, it's red Solo cups only.

    Re: What’s in your glass tonight?

    You guys have much classier tastes than me. Most of my limitations are the result of the horrible heartburn from anything other than “white” liquors such as some tequila and all vodka and why my favorite of all drinks these days is Deep Eddy’s Vodka. I was turned onto it by a liquor store in Montana years ago as an alternative to Tito’s and I stuck. Truly my favorite.

    U really are clueless....

    Your jealously and arrogance responding to my bourbon tasting is uncalled for and shows how stupid u are. U had to say something so u attack my glasses?? (For the record they are not Riedel.)

    So take your one Glencarin glass and pour yourself a glass of STFU....oops I meant Jim Beam

    Lets see how you work around this, DA.
