    I'd toast you right now, but I happen to be drinking orange juice. It just wouldn't be appropriate, somehow.

    Ready to take my first trip out to the new deck. TREX. Very cool. I have a bottle of Blanton's and a brand new Adirondack chair. Life is good.

    I finished off my Elija Craig 12 year old, and I just had my first taste of Woodford Reserve. And I have a bottle of Blanton's that's just waiting to be cracked open for a special occasion. Like a Thursday.

    Re: Making the important choices. . .

    Definitely a good thing there isn't an SBTV. We are a fine bunch of folks here, fun to be with, etc., but I don't think I'd want to look at our faces all the time.

    Old Grandad BIB. It really is amazing to me that in less than a year I have gone from one who only really liked wheaters to someone who would really enjoy the most ryed bourbon on the market. Good stuff, and only $13 to boot

    It seems to me that the rye spiciness in thosebourbons take a little more time to grow on you that the wheated ones smoothness (which seem initally more accessable IMHO), so maybe your findings are consistant with that, although I think I have come to appreciate the intricacies of wheated bourbon that I wasnt sure was there in the same year. Hmmmm. . .

    PS OGD BIB makes a really good Manhattan,

    Yeah Tom, it took me a helluva long time to start to appreciate wheaters. I am completely smitten with the 20 year old Pappy Van Winkel. That is one great bourbon. Too bad it's $80 a bottle and 500 miles to nearest liquor store that has it!- Linn

    Wild Turkey Rye, neat, in my Glencairn glass.

    I've been guzzling so much of it lately mixed with Ginger Beer that I decided I needed to find out what it really tastes like before the bottle is empty. As I sip it, I keep thinking that it tastes like OGD BIB on turboboost, very much the way I expected OGD 114 to taste (which it didn't).

    On a side note, I've tried various full-bodied bourbons with Ginger Beer, and their flavor just doesn't come through to the extent that rye does. The custom of mixing rye and ginger is more than just a tradition, it seems. It really is a match made in Heaven.

    Yours truly,

    Re: What are you STILL drinking right now (LOL). .

    My first bottle of the Fox lasted a mere two months. I have said it would make a perfect summer bourbon, but it also goes very well with Italian sausage, mozz chees, peppers and onions, which is often on my low carb menu. (That meal is also why I can't stay stocked in Wathen's or Old Fitz either.)

    So, after finishing off the Fox, it's onto what started this thread in the first place, Elmer T. Lee SB.

    Time to go watch Six Feet Under that I recorded last night on HBO.
