Looking good Scott!
I got a similar package today.
Three 750ml Eagle Rare 101's and a Wild Turkey Rare Breed Batch No W-T-01-91.
gotta love those Texas SB.com guys!!!
God gave me wisdom but the Devil gave me style!
I am seriously drooling over that WT 12YO. I wish they'd bring it back to the domestic market.
Meantime, I picked up my first-ever bottle of Elmer T. Lee. It's growing on me. Thick and oily, which I love; but no particular flavor note that I can pin down, which I find odd. Most bourbons have a little toffee or vanilla or caramel; nothing stands out in particular to me. But still it is very pleasant overall.
I'm beginning to believe that BT uses a house yeast that contributes a mustiness to their whiskey. I found Buffalo Trace seriously objectionable because of this; Elmer does have it, but it's not so bad. Maybe it's the higher rye mashbill that makes it less of a pain. Rock Hill Farms has just a touch of this, but only barely noticeable.
I got a 1L of AAA 10yr & a 750 of OF Signature in the mail today from a trade. Yesterday I received a bottle of Oscar & Tony's 4R1B.....I feel fortunate and at peace.

I got the Hirsch 25 and 28. In hindsight I probably should have let them go...
It was stickershock without a doubt
