Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts or PM's. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

    It just tastes like young unready bourbon to me. Some people like that taste. I don’t... But, I hate cilantro with a passion, some people like it. It’s really up to your taster. <br />
    <br />
    I like a lot of BIB’s, single barrel’s, & barrel strength stuff. Some of my go-to’s right now?<br />
    <br />
    Elijah Craig Barrel Proof<br />

    Just finished a bottle of Stagg Jr and just picked up a bottle of ECBP. Really impressed by the EC, excellent sipper. Wish it was easier to locate Stagg Jr in Michigan. <br />
    <br />
    Did anyone pick up the new KC Cask strength Rye? My local store had it for $80ish but I passed. Curious if anyone has tried it yet though.

    The liquor store down the street from my office has the Weller Special Reserve (green label) for $30. Anyone recommend? They also have Weller 12 but it's $119 now...didn't that used to be in the $30 range?

    SR should be just over $20, but if you haven’t tried it & cant find it that’s not rape prices. Now that being said, that 12 is rape. And yes, it’s around $30 msrp.

    I’ll let him answer your question too, but I’ve had some success with some store barrel picks. The Full Proof is the hands down winner in their line.

    When you say full proof are you referring to single barrel bottles

    I believe Full Proof = Cask Srength = Barrel Proof. Etc.

    Not in this case... There is actually one called “Full Proof.”<br />
    <br />
    There is a Small Batch, Single Barrel, Bottled In Bond, Rye, Port Finish, etc. The Full Proof is a little over 120 ABV. Technically it’s not a Barrel Strength because it is cut before bottled. Really good, none the less.

    I've got a few favorites... But my "Go to's" are Four Roses Small Batch for sipping and Four Roses Yellow Label for any mixed drinks. Love both for the price!

    Just got my hands on a bottle of Weller 12 year. Supposed to be the precursor to Pappy and very similar to Rip Van Winkle.. And it is a lot cheaper.

    <br />
    Incorrect info.<br />
    <br />
    Weller products have always been available in parallel to 'pappy' products, but historically have not been the same less being from the same distillery.<br />
    <br />
    Weller 12 is the exact same liquid as the Van Winkle Lot B 12 year, and is completely different than the Rip Van Winkle 10 year. The only difference between Weller 12 and Lot B is that Julian Van Winkle 'hand picks' barrels, from Weller 12 stock, to be used in Lot B.

    it's really good but i wouldn't pay much over retail for it. hopefully you got a good deal on it. i've seen where some places are selling it like it is Pappy (I haven't had a sip of Pappy so don't know the hype).

    Call me weird but I prefer the OWA over the W12. Both are solid for the price point though.

    I really like it. It is wine barrel aged, which isn't for everyone, but at $39.99 I haven't found anything I like better.

    Unfortunately it’s not wine barrel aged. They actually pour Port wine into th me whiskey. It’s basically a liqueur. Way too sweet for me.
