    Tonight I am having several pours of AAA 10 year old. Don't know yet if I will change to something else but the night is still young.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? - Spring 2011

    I finally cracked open my bottle of Col. E.H. Taylor. The good news: I really enjoy its mellowness. There's very very few off notes on this bourbon, and the 100 proof is pulled off with real finesse. It's no knock-your-socks off bourbon by any stretch, but it offers a pleasing simplicity rare in today's bottlings. There's a cleanness to it that actually brings to mind the ND OGD I'm working on; not that they share many tasting notes, just more of a lack of bitterness that usually makes its way into a bourbon at some point. I've had a handful of pours over a few nights, and nothing about it bores me... yet.

    The bad news: I'll miss it when it's gone, so it would make sense to throw a bottle or two in the bunker, but I don't want to pay another $75 for it.

    I'm looking forward to getting my first bottle of this this weekend...I've heard a lot of good things about it!

    Sorry I did misprint Gary. It was EC 18 with an actual age of 20 years, so it was old mixed with young, beside bourbon mixed with rye.

    Ah, well still, the age of the EC 18 should blend well with the youth of the Rittenhouse in the sense of the result ending up in the middle. And EC bourbon is simply rye with less rye. You did good.

    And now I'm thinking: would a couple of drops of Madeira put the final touches on it?

    Pour of Knob Creek SBR. Nice pour for $4. Helps to know the bartender.

    Doing a side by side of OC 12YR and a private bottling of Jefferson's Reserves which is a 15 yr old barrel. Tastes very similar.
