Evan Williams Single Barrel, 2008 Vintage. I've been eyeing these at the liquor store for quite some time and tonight I finally pulled the trigger. $26 plus tax isnt too bad IMO.
Weller SR from the 80s. That SW SR goes down like a sports drink after a long B-Ball game.
Bottle dead in 2 days ... Good thing I found that late ND GOGD 86'er in San Diego
A McScrooge's single barrel selection of OWA 107. Docbible, you were right, this is terrific. The finish on this won't end, and I've had 86 proof bourbons that burn more. Nothing but rich flavor with this bottle. I'll have to open one of their 7 yr OWA's from last year, and compare. I haven't missed Centennial, as that one has stepped in nicely. I wonder if this will fare as well. I think it might.

I thought Brent hit a homerun with this one (Mcscrooges antique 107). Definitely worth a few in the bunker with the new nas bottle design. The flavor without the burn is nice and lingering. I think I'll open another. tim
Started with a short pour of EC18 then a little Prichard's Double barrel , then a little Willett 18 and finished with a goodly pour of Wild Turkey 101 from the 70's.
I'm about to try my candycane experiment--bottom shelf Heaven Hill with said candy cane.

Old Forester DSP 414, either 1980 or 1982. This is big time glut whiskey, shades darker than the current Signature. Has some butterscotch along with tobacco, leather and fruit on the nose. I just pulled out a ND Old Taylor to confirm that same butterscotch smell. A really nice balance of sweetness, grain and heat that lingers. How could vodka have ever taken over this???
