    Gonna start thinking you are the only one down here pouring Cam

    Last night was a pour of ND OGD86 to salve my battered pride after an awful day on the links.

    Yum, I rate the ND Old Taylor as almost the perfect bourbon.. I wonder how their Old Grandad would compare?

    The only GT Stagg i've tried was CamDuncan's 2004 Stagg which i found to be truly amazing with a strong chocolate after-taste. Tonight i am cracking a 2009 Stagg and hoping it is as good or better.

    It is no secret that I love that elixir of the gods, bourbon.

    Caught up with Hightower and his family last night for a fantastic dinner & drinks.
    Tried some Jim Beam 1795, followed by some 1972 Barrel C, 1792 KBS Barrel of the year, Old Overholt Rye, Angels Envy, Elmer T Lee Barrel C and finished with some WL Weller KBS Barrel of the year.
    The 1792 Barrel C & Angels Envy were definate standouts, while the Old Overholt was the bargain of the night (cost $10.88 when I was in Hawaii last month)

    What did you think of the 1795 Cam? JB Black in a fancy dress?

    I didn't mind it Tym - it was definately typical Beam, but I don't think it's worth the asking price.
