Slept like crap Monday night due to an on-coming head cold so I poured a small glass of '08 WLW and slept like a lamb last night. It really is made for medicinal purposes. Really!
Back on the 2012 4RSmB LE, this is thick and juicey, not unlike __________ you fill in the blank!
I was traveling thru NC and I stopped by Halifax's house for some sampling. m_jolley and C2Walker stopped over as well last night. We hit some
samples that I brought along (Willett 18yr Doug/Willz 8550/8551, Kenwood EC18, FR OBSK SB), and some small pours of WT 8 export, ND OGD 114 and Very Old St. Nick Rye 17yr from Rod's bunker.
Somewhere in between we decided to hone in on Four Roses, and the bottles started to open and flow.

There were some great bottles sampled last night and I really love what FR's is doing! :cool:
OGD 100 BIB. Amazing how good this stuff is.
High West Rendezvous Rye. I didn't begin to truly appreciate this one until I got into my second bottle.
Is it just me, or does anyone else make their nightly choice by nosing different bottles? I find that the "nose knows".
Now a little Weller 12, since this is technically a bourbon thread.
OWA. I'm beginning to like this more and more.
A particularly good bottle of EC 18. Very creamy...touch of tobacco. I like it. I've found that if I'm going to drink a 90 proofer it has to be the first pour of the night.
