    Is the number on the bottle the bottle number, or is it significant for something else?

    I usually would not pick on someones taste and description but this. "ORVW = eucalyptus, ash, lead pencil". Lead Pencil! Ash. Really Lead Pencil. How would you know lead pencil. LoL my friend. At any rate ORVW 10yr 107 is outstanding bourbon. Definitely sweet and full of vanilla and Carmel. I always try to some around which has certainly become harder to do. Also very nice description FishnbowlJoe.

    Aww you must have been one of those smart kids that never chewed on his pencils.

    But seriously, the taste of a number 2 yellow pencil.... very distinct, never goes away.

    Its strange, but when I was rating pencils, I mentioned that the DIXON #2 pencil tastes like ORVW 10/107.

    I never chewed on my pencils, but I remember the smell from the classroom sharpener and it's one I'll never forget. The only bourbon I've sampled that had that distinct nose and taste was from a handle of '70 era SW Cabin Still.

    i like the ORVW. but once i found the PVW, its hard to go back. but its a very nice bourbon. i get hints of tea when i taste it. its funny, most of my favorite bourbons hit my palate like a dark brewed tea.

    I've only been sampling top-shelf bourbon for less than a year (been a bourbon drinker for decades), and still working on my tasting notes, but the ORVW 10/107 is my favorite store find so far, including a Pappy 20. -Chuckles

    In your post #59, it looks like you forgot to include the [/quote] after
    foxflyer5's text. If you hit the quote button and then start your reply
    after the [/quote], you should be good.
