    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? - Spring 2011

    Settling down with a pour of ND OGD 114. This really is a beautiful whiskey. And, so very, very different from the current iteration. This has more of that old timey sherryish, cognacish, dark fruitish characteristic to it. The current, as I've described many times, has that burnt corner of the browniepan thing going on. Both, though, are fabulous.

    Sorry...didn't realize there was a new thread

    Trying Very Special Old Fitz 12 yr. tonight. Upon the first sip I'm not too impressed. Decent initial taste, kind of sweet, but it disappears very quickly. To me it tastes very light, even for a 90 proofer, and unless it opens up a lot it will probably be relegated to the "mixer cabinet" for guests.

    Finished off the evening with RHF as I watched the Jayhawks win. At least I got one pick right this evening!

    For me, it's a good ol' 1.75L PET of Ancient Age and a 2L of Dr. Pepper.

    In all fairness, I like the AA neat, too. But, bourbon and Dr. Pepper is my favorite Highball, and I'm certainly not going to use my Four Roses Single Barrel or Knob Creek Single Barrel Reserve in it!

    I've worked the past 7 days but today I'm off so I started the day with a little WLW 117.9. A great way to start the day. I think I'll go out for breakfast and enjoy my day.

    I do have some errands to run while I'm out.

    I just emptied a 1.75L of BT and opened another...Uh, I like it.

    Started with Knob Creek SB over ice, still haven't made up my mind over this one.

    2010 GTS. Extra yum. Every time I open a bottle I seem to like it more than the last. Even going back and forth between years.

    It's one that really re-aligns the scale for me. Drinking other bourbons, prior to and after a glass of GTS, seems like a feeble attempt at drinking.
