    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 strongly second your opinion on BT. Only had 2 bottles myself and never been able to finish the 2d one due to the strong musty tinge. I keep it around for company, egg nog, and the wife......not necessarily in that order. Never noticed it in ETL though, but, did note a touch of it in RHF. Got to be something in that particular mashbill. Glad someone else noticed it. For a long time, thought it was just me.

    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...

    Sounds like buyers remorse.
    I have had dreams of buyers remorse, but not on my bourbon purchases.
