    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking? Spring 2009

    Had a great bourbon weekend. Friday was 4RSB, Saturday was 4RSB & Willet SB Pot Still and finished off the weekend with a slug out of my family-sized EC 12. Deeeelightful.

    Sounds like you had fun! Besides my obvioiusly delightful foray into Dr. Entropy's lab, I had some very nice tasting this weekend as well . . . Friday night it was OGD 114 followed by Buffalo Trace (which I often forget how good these two are) . . . Saturday it was around the world in wild, wild Westbrook . . . they yesterday a couple modest pours from the Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye I was given, a little more Buffalo Trace and I killed the dregs of a Julio's Elmer T. Lee and a slope shoulder OCPR.

    I too had a couple of Sunday night pours of FRSB while listening to Animal Collective's latest (picked up upon Andy's recommendation) and Built to Spill's Keep it Like a Secret. Made for a relaxing evening.

    I usually take a sip of the FRSB neat, then sip the rest with a splash of water.

    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking? Spring 2009

    Joan and I took a long weekend trip to eastern and southern Kentucky to celebrate our anniversary. In one of the last wet counties we passed through, we stopped at a small liquor store. I spied a lonely WTAS on an upper shelf that I was able to "adopt" it (at a discount!).

    We watched the sun set over the Appalachias while sipping this example of the distillers art and reminiscing about the wonders of the last 24 years.

    Switched over to ORVW 10/90...another very good daily pour! This is a good bit different from the BT...smokey/petey in comparison. I'm slowly working my way up to the ORVW 10/107 and my bottle of PVW 15yr.

    Sipping some Old Forester BIB tonight...I'm finding it to be rich and robust with an almost-buttery mouthfeel, big molasses notes in the palate with a peppery spicy fade. I'm still sorting out the nose...I get molasses, but a couple other things I can't put my finger on descriptively just yet. Definitely a hint of apples and corn as it sits and opens up. This is darn good bourbon.

    The tastebuds were switched on last night so I ran with it.
    OGD 114 neat to start then a Bookers with a splash of water. Finished up with 2 pours of WTRR101. Being a school night I managed to exercise some self control and called it quits
