    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking? Spring 2009

    Powers Gold Label to start things off.

    Now enjoying Old Potrero 18th Century 124.6 proof. This is completely new terrain for me, but I'm starting to dig it. Interesting concept: a very young whiskey overall, 100% rye mashbill aged in toasted oak barrels and bottled at barrel strength. The first pour was a major shock and had me questioning WHY I paid $70 for this bottle. But now that its gotten some air and mellowed out I often find myself craving a bit when I look over my bunker.

    I don't think Old Potrero will appeal to the average bourbon lover, or anybody else dedicated to exploring a single category. But if you like trying as many different spirits as possible, and tend to enjoy whiskey the most, you'll probably find something enjoyable here.

    Mamba, I have the same OP. Try it with a drop or two of water - you may be surprised at the difference.

    We went to The Ark in Ann Arbor last night to see Siegel Schwall Blues Band, btw Sam Lay was with them on drums.

    Before we went in we had a drink at a bar next door.
    I asked for a Wild Turkey on the rocks and the waitress said they didn't have it so I said your "well' bourbon will be fine.
    I sipped it and it tasted odd, I was expecting Beam but it wasn't and I couldn't finish it.
    When I got the bill it stated well bourbon and the waitress said, I charged you for well but got the bartender to give you Jack Daniels.
    I didn't complain because she was so sweet and thought she did me a big favor.

    Bulleit on the rocks when we got home.

    Wow, It's been years since I thought of them. I bet that's a great show... I never saw them play but have a few of their records from years ago.

    I just had a few friends over and we tried Old Bardstown 10, WT 8 101 from 97, VW lot B, Dallas Dhu Scotch 27 yo 1975(yummy candy shop) and Rosebank 15 1991. Washed down with a bit of beer, Sierra NV Pale Bock, Summerfest and Mendocino Trad Bock.

    Cheers,

    RW
