    EC 12 followed by WT Old No. 8 (93). I wanted a touch of the sweeter finish of the WT following the more bitter/sour finish of EC. Both are mighty fine tonight.

    Last night was a pour of EBSG McKenna BiB. Seems to be getting better the longer the bottle is open.

    ...and then it's empty...

    That bottling has changed more dramatically every few days and weeks after opening than any other I've had. I think it's because it was such a low yield barrel that there are more particles 'n' good stuff in there compared to standard barrels of that age that yield twice as many bottles.

    Last night, Mrs. Rughi smelled the McKenna in my glass as she walked past and decided to stop and sniff it - then taste it. She said it tasted like a "Manhattan only better" and said it's the first bourbon she thinks she might drink straight.

    Those low yield barrels - that's where a lot of good stuff is found.
