    Dave,
    Those glasses have become my favorite glasses to drink with. I love the heaviness and the tappered top. Unfortunatly one of my two broke in a dishwashing mishap and now I only have one . And of course those gift-sets aren't available now. I sure hope I will see them again next year.

    Weller 12yo. Just love this stuff. Did it really only cost $14.99? I think I will finally pick up a bottle of the Centennial next weekend

    Re: What are you drinking this moment?!? (continued)

    Jeff,

    I was recently underwhelmed by my bottle of Weller 12, which I had let a salesman talk me into buying.

    However, at about that time I suddenly couldn't find anything to like in Russell's Reserve after I had raved about it hereabouts for months.

    Recently I have regained at least some of my fondness for RR; so maybe it's time to give the Weller 12 another shot. As you say, the price is certainly appealling.

    Yours truly,
    Dave Morefield

    Re: What are you drinking this moment?!? (continued)

    Jeff,

    If I ever accidentally break one of mine, what say we each bet our one remaining glass on a coin toss? No sense in having two orphan glasses, eh?

    On a serious note, I have worried that on a humid day the tapered shape combined with a little condensation would make the glass slippery and hard to hold. It's hardly an issue for me because I drink neat 90% of the time, but I assume it was intended to be a rocks glass. Have you ever had any mishaps or near-misses?

    Your comment about the heaviness gave me a wild idea. How hard would it be to turn the bottom three inches of an Eagle Rare bottle (also heavily weighted) into a rocks glass? Would the diameter be too large? Would the side be too thick?

    Yours truly,
    Dave Morefield

    I have a bottle of Wathen's. No mention of 12 years old on it. I did not think a great deal of it. Do you know where he gets his stock from?

    Jefferson's Reserve 15yo bourbon. I must admit that I am getting more enjoyment tonight out of this one than I have in a while. Something strange is happening though. Tonight I am picking up a subtle earthyness that until now I have only atributed to BT boubons. Hmm.

    Tonight I had some Elija Craig 12 year old for the first time. It was delicious! The weird lip makes swigging right from the bottle pretty hard though, so I had to be civilized and use a sort of snifter(?) glass.

    I mentioned Weller, not Wathen's, in the post to which you replied.

    Did you mistype?

    In contrast to the Weller 12 the one bottle of Wathen's I've had was very enjoyable. I can't tell you where the stock for either comes from.

    Yours truly,
    Dave Morefield

    Re: Hey Jeff, Lookee what I got!!

    Congratulations! I hope that in due course you tell us your perceptions of it.

    In the meantime, wouldn't it be marvelous to drink a KS toast to the inauguration of the 2Q2003 iteration of the "What are you drinking this moment?" thread? Hint, hint... (The current thread takes over a minute and a half to load on my modem connection, which never comes close to the claimed speed.)

    Yours truly,
    Dave Morefield
