    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking Winter '08/'09

    FR1B tonight, one of my faves.
    Crazy busy these days, too much traveling. The FR is a superb way to unwind. Back at it hard this weekend but the FR at the end of the day is something I really look forward to.

    Cheers!

    Going back to give Hirsch 16 Gold Foil another try. No, doesn't do it for me. I still can't figure out what all the fuss is about. For the same $ I could have bought another Pappy 20. I had to give it another try, but I'll put this way in the back and maybe I'll change.

    It *was* a bourbon for nearly half a century, so rest easy.

    The original Dickel enterprise left Tennessee with statewide prohibition in 1910. Dickel was produced by A Ph. Stitzel and later Stitzel-Weller, and became part of Schenley in 1937 - whereupon its production, Lincoln County leaching vats and all, was transferred to what is now Buffalo Trace.

    Dickel did not return to Tennessee until 1958, so it was actually labelled "Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whisky" (without an 'e') for the better part of 48 years.

    Bowled a 590, my team took 5 points out of 7, but the best news of the night is that the bar in the bowling alley finally brought in the bottle of BT that I've been asking for since September. Woo!

    Our much-anticipated ice storm is now upon us, so I am in an unusually insomniac mood and quietly reflecting upon the world through a very fine lens of WT101. Its rye kick is perfect for this weather.

    Jim,

    I believe the later gold foils became victim of being in the tank too long. I had some Hirsch Blue Wax last night and it was fantastic. I also have an open gold foil and it's nasty neat and ruins whatever I try to mix with it. You probably have a late gold foil in which case time will not make it better.

    It became unseasonably warm today in Louisville with temperatures in the 60s... Still, the warmth of '08 WLW was a great way to start the weekend and I'll probably pour something else after dinner tonight.
