    Tonight it was a little Handy '09 after shoveling and a little Stagg '08 after dinner.

    It is very different from anything I have had before. I like it but need more time with it. I could get used to this stuff.

    The VSOF is one of my favorites! I find that these bottles get much better after they're open for a while -- although it's hard for me to resist diving in right away, I usually appreciate this more after it's been open for a couple of weeks.

    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking, Fall 2009

    Bought some 1999 EWSB today, so I had to have a taste of it before heading off to bowling with FishnbowlJoe. Joe brought a few goodies, as he's been know to do, but I can't remember what they were. As always, they were very good. I think the last one was some old Weller, 101 maybe? The memory issues must be due to having too much beer with the bourbon. Went home early tonight due to the weather we've had in northern Illinois today and decided I needed something more before calling it a night. Decided on a pour of OFBB and am enjoying it immensely.

    I picked up a bottle of Four Roses Yellow and Single Barrel at the local store. Apparently FR is now available in MD!

    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking, Fall 2009

    tonight has been WT 86.8 from the 70s, WT 8 yr from the 80s and a few barrel samples from Reid.... i have to say, the Redi Barreled HH/OBH BIBs took the cake... blew the others out of teh drink, the real McCoy... too much peanuts in the younger BPs...

    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking, Fall 2009

    I did have WT 101 from 1982 before dinner yesterday, Dickel 12 with the lime truffles for dessert and WTRR 101 late at night. Everything tasted good.

    Hey Sin, nice tasting notes on th BH....since you like the high rye profile, might I suggest a Four Roses bottling for your next purchase. My favorite would be the Single Barrel.
    Tanks! Not bad for a 'rookie,' huh?

    I kind of feel embarrassed. That it took me this long to enjoy bourbon. Though, I did have a bit of a drinking problem, and stayed away from it, alcohol, out of fear. I've obviously conquered that fear, but I'm still not much of a drinker.

    I hope Basil Hayden's keeps well, with age. I'm more of a 'sipper' than a 'drinker,' and this bottle is probably going to be with me for a while as I extend my bourbon experience. I still have scotch and rum to enjoy, too.

    Thanks! I enjoy scotch, so this isn't my first rodeo.

    Let us know what you think of them. The FRSB is one of my favorites and the Yellow Label is an inexpensive quality bourbon for everyday consumption.
