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

    I'm drinking Old Granddad 86 today. I wouldn't have thought I'd ever buy this since OGD 100 is usually not much more expensive but I arrived at it in a particular way. I like to have lower proof bourbons around, perhaps because I also drink scotch, and I wanted to buy a cheapie. I set out to buy either Old Overholt or Pikesville Supreme but something told me to go back to the orange. OGD100 is the first bourbon I couldnt wait to pour a second glass of.

    It has, like almost all bourbons, a great nose. It does have more alcohol punch then EC12 and there is some bitterness in the finish. I set it aside for a little while but I was suprised to see my wife nipping away at it (possibly due to the lower proof) so I revisited it. There are some great flavors there and I've started to enjoy it's appearence in the rotation more and more. It was $11.50 well spent.

    Right now I am trying the Fighting Cock and am wishing the bottle would empty faster than the Buffalo Trace bottle I also have open. I like the Trace better

    Last night was a rotation of bourbon and rye - Started with JB Rye followed by MM, then a pour of ER10yo, EWSB1997, went back to another JB Rye and then finished with a EC12yo - very nice!
    I like to go back to the peppery taste of the rye after a few bourbons and then back to a favourite bourbon to end on.

    It is no secret that I love that elixir of the gods, bourbon.

    ORVW 10/107 while cooking center cut chops on the grill, really keeps you warm with the snow coming down! Not sure what's next but I'll find something.

    Cheers,

    I love the taste of bourbon but after drinking a rye bourbon is just too bland so I'll drink my bourbon first and finish with a rye if i'm going to have rye.
