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

    Old Grandad BIB. I thought, when I first purchased this bottle, that it would be interesting to try some, but that it would soon make its way to the back of the cabinet. Not so! Lots of rye kick with a little peppermint and clove added for more spice. I think I am getting hints of green apples, or maybe pears. Not sure so I'll drink on 'till it comes to me

    I too am drinking the Weller Centennial 10 y.o. right now. And I agree with you about the maple flavor...I detect that too. This is one good wheater!

    George T. Stagg Lite (aka, "Rock Hill Farms").

    Does anyone else detect a strong family resemblance here?

    I hadn't drunk RHF for quite a while because I was saving the last few ounces for possible comparison with other bourbons. Today's the day.

    Someone here once called RHF "rocket fuel". However, compared to GTS it is quite gentle. I can flood my tongue with it without overloading my sensors. Doing the same thing with GTS would bring tears (not of joy) to my eyes.

    Man, this stuff is good! I think I'll try a one-on-one with Kentucky Spirit while I still can.

    Yours truly,

    Dave,
    I take an opposite view. To me GTS tastes unlike most of the BT bourbons that share that green, earthy taste. I believe that Ken Webber stated that GTS is from Masbill #1, unlike RHF which is #2 IIRC. Even when I dilute my Stagg with a little water to bring down the proof, I don't get any resemblence. Of course I get strong similarities between RHF and ERSB, to which you have stated your disagreement.

    Jeff,

    I really need to do what you did -- add water to GTS -- and then revisit the matter in a side-by-side comparison.

    [/QUOTE]I'll earmark some of my remaining RHF for that comparison, as well. I know very well that my memory plays tricks on me.

    It looks as though I'm down to less than four ounces in this bottle. I guess the comparison to KS will have to wait. (The only place I've seen RHF in SoCal, it was almost $50 . I may get another bottle the next time I order from Chicago.)

    CL,
    That's an interesting observation. I'll have to look at to see if I get the maple impression next time around. I also think that the Weller Centennial is quite good!

    Old Forester 100-proof.

    I bought a 1.75L of this, Saturday. I have had it 5 of the past 6 evenings. I believe I have an "everyday pour". At $31 for the big bottle, that is the equivalent of about $13.30 per 750 ml. Not a bad deal for a pretty good whiskey.

    Last evening, I had Jim Beam Black. I can't make up my mind with this one. Sometimes I think it's pretty decent, at other times I don't enjoy it. Last night, it was good.
