though our relationship has been short, I've come to enjoy many aspects of what you offer. who'd have thought, after a single late-night taste, that we'd be spending so much time together - especially at night...

thanks for being here, doing what you do, smelling the ways you smell, your diverse tastes, your gorgeous colors... thanks for all of it and the subtle ways in which you enrich my life and bring a smile to my face, dare I say - a warming sensation, from the inside out...

conversely, you're welcome - especially for the resources, time and attention I've given you during these early days - even when it comes at the expense of others I also love. I can't wait to see you again this evening, and I hope this relationship lasts beyond this first whirlwind of a month.

yours,

D

here's something to remember our times by:

Hear hear! Well said, and seconded.

I must say BT justly deserves the recognition as distiller of the year and perhaps the decade!

Hey, did you drink that or is that the new "Crystal" Eagle Rare?

If not, well,

A nod from me too. After my MM, WR, KC beginnings, I've grown to appreciate different tastes. (In part to SB.com) Among my favorites now are: BT, ETL, ERSB 10/90, Weller 12 yr old and one I just got, ORVW 10/90. I also drink others, (trying to finish off bottles and save a little money for more bourbon) but, if I had to choose a semi-everyday poor it would be my ERSB 10/90. It doesn't matter how you drink it, it's good no matter what. For a special occasion the ORVW 10/90. Yes, a big hand for The Trace. From posts here and other places it looks as if they're not resting on their laurels either. Three cheers. Hip, Hip Hooorayyyyyy!! All the best, Joe

clearly I was drinking when I took that photo... I left out the ETL SB:

and here's a nice close-up of the colors with Elmer peeking out:

everyone in the BT family really ought to pat themselves on the back, what an outstanding collection of bourbons from one Distillery.

it's kinda funny, downtown, I took a similar BT windowsill pic a few weeks ago and posted it in the stash thread:

nice collection, cool photo, awesome view.

I miss the snow. a few months ago I was snowboarding in Japan during a 3-month stay in the mountains there, but now that I'm back in Austin I miss it.

Here's the BT part of my stash. Joe

PS I'm really not trying to keep them all at the same level.:lol:
