Should make for an interesting night. There are 5 bourbons here that I haven't had before. Looking forward to it.

Happy birthday!

Have you tried the McKenzie yet? I'd like to hear what other folks think about it. I was surprised how flavorful it was for a young whiskey.

We didn't get the chance to open the McKenzie or the WTKS. PVW 15 & 20, Ezra B, VWFRR and Saz 18 were added in as the night progressed and that was all she wrote. Hard to top those picks. All in all a very good line up. I wish that I had more of the Yellowstones in my bunker. If I were living back in the day... I could see this bourbon being a part of the usual rotation. The real surprise was the Ezra B. A very well balanced whiskey. The only disappointing bottle was the OFBB 07. Very one dimensional and thin. I don't get the hype that goes with this bottle. Then again... I've never opened any OFBB and said WOW... Time for bed.

I know you would have liked the Mckenzie. I would have loved to have tasted that yellowstone. People say it has a lot of fruity notes.

Yeah... I wish we had made it to the McKenzie. I set it to the side, and will break it out at our next sampling. Looking forward to it.

Also... thanks everyone for the birthday wishes. It was a good time. Always fun to share good times and great bourbon with friends.
