    Turkey Heaven now, that's right, I'm doing a pour of Wild Turkey 86.8 proof circa late '70's or early '80's.

    I'm really enjoying it! I'm even considering a beer back.

    Goes to show there's a way that works for almost everything.

    4RSB 2009 and Bulleit, 50/50 in my 1960's fluted-bottom JD rocks glass, two cubes. This is the perfect use of both whiskeys. The result is a harmonious sweet spicy whiskey with the balance point (of age, proof, 4R house character) just perfect.

    A little EC12 tonight. Not enjoying it as much as I used to. Still some fine whiskey though. Hopefully this pour will benefit from a little more time in the glass.

    Cheers!

    This 4R Mariage discussion has me all hacked off. I opted for 3 bottles of the 09 Anniversary and I'm not that taken by it, I actually liked the Toddys Selection better, and now I'm reading how good the Mariage is. Ugghhh!

    Tonight, RITT Bib, OWA nas, OWA nas.

    Isn't that the way it always goes?

    I has a couple pours of ER 10/90 last night while in chat. A couple of the guys were raving about GTS...made me a little jealous but considering I was sitting in a hotel room in NC my bourbon selection could have been a lot worse!

    I really liked the AA BIB, actually. I didn't find it pedestrian, so much as delicate and refined for a BIB. I have the same view of the AAA 10 which has subtle charms that take a bit of time to appreciate. If you're looking for big, bold flavors then Ancient Ancient Age 10 and Ancient Age BIB won't fit the bill. But honestly, I found myself nosing the glass ten minutes after finishing my last pour of the BIB because I was really digging the sweet cherry/vanilla aroma that still lingered when I was done drinking it.
