    I think it's a very similar profile, OO is maybe a little smoother, while the JB rye is slightly more robust, both are easy to drink and I dearly love them. For all I know, it could be the same juice from different parts of the warehouse or something...others may disagree with me.

    Willett 6yr old 122.4 proof after a bout on the driveway with some freezing precipitation! Looks to me, I'll be out there again before the day is over.

    oh now...how much wudder did you add?

    i did like a drop...five molecules wide or so...

    still, i think it sits best swirled straight and then savored at full strength!

    My discussion on Old Forester with Roger in some other posts today prompted me to pull out my handle of OF 86pf and enjoy a pour. Cheers Roger.

    Oops we might've added more than five molecules. I do enjoy it straight a lot more than the first time I tried it though.

    Can't get over how good Rittenhouse BIB is though. I had it last night with crushed ice, and it clouded up, which I assume means its non chill filtered. If you still haven't been able to find one we'd be willing to send you some 'olive oil' no charge.

    Great observation!

    I can't wait to try this when the EBSG gets together to taste Rittenhouses on the 24th. Lear had remarked a recent bottle seemed younger than usual.

    The last of my Heaven Hill White Label, probably the most simple bourbon I've ever had; just corn and char.

    We bottle Overholt 750's and liters in Frankfort and i believe the Beam rye is bottled in Clermont.Could very well be the same profile,just an entirely different warehouse.
