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

    While trying to clear some room in my bunker, and I use the word loosely, I decided to finish off the last of a bottle of Heaven Hill 6yo BIB. It has been a while since I have had any of this, but I remember thinking it was better than I had expected, and it is again. Getting some powerful corn notes with a good dose of leather and hay. Kind of smells like a freshly mowed lawn. Really good bourbon for the price; about $7 here in Lexington.

    Sh*t! This post almost rolled over to page 2. What's up with you all!

    Tonight is Weller Centennial. I love this stuff. This is even more refreshing as it is my first drink in five days (losing weight). I wish I could get Centennial here in NC. The bottle I have is from my trip to Sam's about a month ago.

    I need to do a side-by-side with the Centennial and the Weller 19 yo I got a couple weeks ago in WV. I have a feeling, though, the Centennial would win because of its unique flavor. But, that's not a given. When I put it side by side with the 19 yo, who knows?

    Be careful with that "side by side" stuff.

    I did it with Kentucky Spirit and WT 12 y/o during the Super Bowl, and Kentucky Spirit has never seemed quite as good as it once did ever since.

    The real problem there is that the supply of the superior (to my taste) bourbon is finite.

    Basically I'm too cheap to remove the shrink wrap from the pewter stopper in my one and only bottle of KS. I did make good on a few good chugs of it with Jimmy Russell himself a few weeks ago. I like the 12 YO better. And now for the nugget, Jimmy says it is even more finiter than before. " There's not much of the 12 yo left " says Jimmy. So I guess we need to acquire a taste for Russells Reserve.

    Old Weller 12 yo, my first bottle, bought this afternoon at Liquor Barn on Hurstborne Lane in L'ville. I am in town to help out the family and, even though I put Liquor Barn way down on my list, my relatives took me there first cuz they know me all too well. I've only had a few sips so far, but I do like it. I taste a resemblence to the Weller Centennial, which is a very good thing.

    I also picked up Weller Centennial, my first bottle of Old Charter Classic 90 12 yo, Wathens, BT, and, of course, ORVW 10 yo. Of course I wanted to buy more, but we'll see how much I can take back on the plane with me.

    Interesting that you are having your first taste of Weller 12yo while I was having my first taste of the Centennial. So far so good! Nice body and flavor, though I think I might like this on a littler better at say 90 proof vs 100.

    Old Forester 100 proof. I was reading back over some of my previous posts and came upon one where I declared this bourbon to be my favorite. Well, a lot has happened since then (i.e. Stagg, Birthday Bourbon, Pappy), but this is still one of the great bargain treasures of the bourbon world. Definately in my top 10, maybe even 6 or 7.
