    Re: What bourbon are you enjoying? Fall 2011

    Toasting the end of a really good week with small pours of Jefferson's Rye and McScrooge's Buffalo Trace. Here's hoping that next week turns out to be as fruitful.

    Bourbon Joe and I spent the afternoon enjoying retirement and drinking Pappy Van Winkle 15 yr and Pappy Van Winkle 23 yr (Kentucky Barrel Society Barrel C from 2007).

    I'll bet you boys had a few good cigars, too. .

    Good to see you again at KBF, Doug.

    Re: What bourbon are you enjoying? Fall 2011

    The wife says I can drink again, so I started with KCSB (Party Source bottling) then BTAC WLW 2010, and now working on an old fashioned with High West Rendezvous. Probably made incorrectly... I'm eying the Parker's Heritage 2010, but that will entail another WLW pour I can only take the PH after another wheater, for some reason. If I don't, it tastes only like rubbing alcohol.

    The KCSB I can take or leave. I'm not that much of a rye guy, and I haven't had the High West Rye, but I love me some wheaters. Both the 2010 WLW, and 2010 PHC are great. Enjoy. Joe

    Kind of strange. After an odd week at work, I had a pour of 2010 WLW when I got home from work today. That bottle could hit the recycle bin tonight.

    Re: What bourbon are you enjoying? Fall 2011

    Getting a bit bored of the KCSB myself... I don't like the High West much on its own - something to do with a fennel taste I get from it and the memory of some very, very mean cooks when I was in grade school who made me eat liver soup with fennel - so I had to find something to put it in. My first cocktail! And it's okay...

    Oh yeah, the WLW 2010 just gets better with every sip. I didn't buy enough of them, though "enough" might not be an achievable number

    Just popped open a bottle of Lot B tonight. The nose was so heavenly, I almost couldn't bring myself to drink it. I said ALMOST. I savored every drop.

    Re: What bourbon are you enjoying? Fall 2011

    I have not been enjoying my second purchased bottle of Maker's 46, bought a few months ago, and now opened a while. Tonight was not any better. My first M 46, purchased right after its initial release, I liked a lot with notes of honey and caramel that balanced out the spice. This one is all spice and very one dimensional. I'm blaming it on french oak toasted stave variation and certainly not my palate .

    Finished my last bottle of Beam Distillers Series 7yr. Loved this stuff... especially after it aired and mellowed. It really caught my palette this fall.
