    Re: What are you drinking Spring 2010?

    While in chat last night I started out with some 98 OFBIB that Tommyboy was generous enough to share with me...I didn't have a lot left in the sample...maybe 25mls and it went really fast!

    Then I had a pour of FRSmB and while it was good I found myself wanting something with a little more pull...90 proofers just aren't doing it for me of late.

    Then I decided that I would hit the GTS...I've had a bottle open for a couple months and while I enjoyed it at barrel proof it's not something that I can do everyday. I figured why not cut it down to 110 or so proof and see how it goes. I went with 50mls of GTS and 10mls of water and that provided about a 114 proof pour. I found that I'm able to get all the different flavors out of GTS much easier this way. I went from the camp of it's good but not something I want all the time to the WOW...I really can see why people like this and it's very complex and filled with goodness!
    You can find me in chat most nights on days ending with the letter y!

    Re: What are you drinking Spring 2010?

    For the last few night I have been pouring some softer juice, maybe because it is getting warmer.

    Early Times bottles in '93 followed by Wild Turkey 80 proof from '93 also. Both good but the nod goes to Early Times.

    Next night was EWSB 2000. Not my cup o tea thanks. not terrible but only so-so.

    Last night was Old Heaven Hill BiB (Ky 31) from something like '98. The best of the three nights.

    Watching a tom turkey all puffed-up and strutting for the females in the woods behind the house. Appropriately, sipping some Tradition, neat.

    Neat Woodford Reserve. Its profile has evolved and while I've enjoyed certain batches before (e.g., pre-90's and certain of the post-Versailles minglings) the current ones seem to contain older bourbon all 'round and offer a refined, softer palate - while still showing effects of the pot still.

    My NCAA Bracket isn't busted. It's obliterated. Oh well, this Ezra B 15 yr should help me feel better.

    Absolutely nothing. I've either got a bad cold or allergies working overtime. It's not pretty.

    Bell's Batch 9000. A little expensive but very good.

    An Imperial Stout that is thick, sweet, and loaded with molasses. With a high alcohol content, it's a sipper.
