    Is it really that bad? The bourbon Early Times exports is my usual pour. My favorite 80 proofer. ...beats the 80 proof Beam White, Four Roses Yellow Label, even Rittenhouse 80 IMHO, and Ezra Brooks 90 as well.

    ...

    We just had a short pour of Henry McKenna Single Barrel 10 y.o BIB- barrelled 5/19/92. So nice...full bodied, vanilla and leather. Man, that was tasty, ... went down way too fast. Damn.

    ... and now as usual, ETKSBW (admittedly somewhat to mitigate costs) ...It's, same as always, good ... younger, a little hotter, vanilla is still there, no leather, not so complex (by a long shot) but just fine.

    I've drunk a whole lot of this, and very rarely ever gotten a hangover.

    ...s'all good .
    Peace, ... and Hippy Love.

    The other night I was drinking RR Rye. It dawned on me that the nose was very and I mean very muted. Anyone else notice this?

    I don't have the ksb version. I think that may be why it seems to hurt a lil.

    If the wife and the guests all were into my stash I'd only keep the locally available bottles on the counter.

    Protip: If your brother in law says he really likes GTS after his first pour halfway through a session, hide the bottle before he starts to loose motor control.

    Your right Paul, maybe I should only bring back 2 bottles this time so I can be sure to go again soon after my next return.

    I'm actually a bit torn now between April Sampler and Whiskeyfest/Binnyfest.

    I picked up a bottle of Pernod the other day for making Sazerac cocktails, and now that I'm unemployed I thought I might give it a try late this morning.

    It tasted great, but the only rye I had was Handy...wow. Good thing I don't have anywhere to go.

    Re: What are you drinking Winter 2009/2010

    I have been enjoying a bottle of the OWA 107 in the new, non age statement bottle. I don't get a lot on the nose, and the finish is short, but it is short and enjoyably sweet. Goes down very, very easy, especially for a 107 proof. Sneaky and dangerous.

    I found 2 bottles of the OWA 107 in the old, 7 y.o. bottle this weekend, and got one for me and one for my dad. I'll have to compare and see if anything has changed bt the bottle. [I found the entire BT Antique Collection on the same trip but showed restraint and only brought home one Stagg]

    Ok, I'll take that '95 Rare Breed off your hands but first you have to tell me what your new avatar translates to.
