    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? - Winter 2010/11

    Finished the old year with a smorgasbord of some the year's better releases:
    • OFBB 2010 (one of the better recent bottlings in this series. Makes me wish that OF would offer a 10-12 yo as part of their regular expressions);
    • WLW 2010 (the "heat" mentioned by others overpowers its other elements unless watered down to near Weller 12 levels. Still very good but not as refined as earlier releases.);
    • FRSmB 2010 LE (delightfully seamless and drinkable --- reveals new elements with each sip);
    • PHC 2010 (Parker has done it again! --- one of the best of the modern wheaters).
    Happy New Year to all!

    I rang in the new year with some OWA 8/107 from Loch and Key (barrel 67). Congrats on picking a great barrel, it was superb.

    Enjoy a PHC 2010 (127) as well as a FR LESB to ring in the new year. Both quite good and very different.

    Introduced my nephew to Handy today. His only whiskey experience to date was Makers, Jim and Jack; he thought out of the bottle was a bit hot, added about 6 drops of spring water to a shot in a Glenncarin glass and he thought that was right up his alley, loved the smell, and thought the spicy finish was long and pleasant.

    Right now having some ERSB and just fixed the wife a "Capezetinni" that she had at the Chepeze House, we found a way for her to enjoy bourbon with me.

    Sipping on a healthy pour of the 2009 WLW. Seems to have opened a little after a year, not quite as hot tonight. It will do.

    Maker's. Odd that I find it very yummy this evening. I usually find it just OK. Tonight it is fantastic. Lots of caramel & sweetness. Strange.
