1 - John J Bowman
2 - EC18
3 - Blantonís

I have a pile more to test. This should be fun.
Chase This,
I'm with you on the John J Bowman Single Barrel. it is currently one of my favorite daily drinkers and will often pick it over Blanton's, Elmer T. Lee, Weller 12, or OWA.

Stopper went out today. Keep a eye out for it. If you donít have one already, check Blantonís website for the barrel stave that holds stoppers. It makes an awesome back bar or man cave piece.
