    @markedwards ... I've been eyeing that but always skip over it. I may have to go for it! Did you see the natgeo show on it?

    I just opened a bottle of Rays 50th Anniversary Bourbon. A local liquor store had 150 bottles produced for them by Great Lakes Distillery in Milwaukee, WI. It is surprisingly good for a light colored 80 proof. I love it!

    No, I missed the show, but have seen lots of the news items about it. I bought it out of curiosity and because the presentation was so well done.

    This was a good (not great) scotch, and was very pleasant, but a bit delicate and not particularly complex. This is more a $60 scotch than a $150 scotch.

    Re: What bourbon are you enjoying? Fall 2011

    Got to thinking today that the new Col EH Taylor Sour Mash was very similar to my handle of old ER 101, so I did a side by side.

    First time I've really smelled butterscotch on the nose, about 5-10 min into the pour, ER had it more than the EHT. ER was sweeter, less burn, not as complex but that made it easier to drink.

    EHT was a bit bitter sweet, had a bit of burn, but tasted less sweet and more balanced than the ER.

    I enjoyed them both but I think I've come to the conclusion that CEHTSM is not worth the $75 they charge for it. $50 probably. But I also paid $40 for this handle of ER 101!
