    Re: What Bourbon Are You Enjoying, Winter 2011/2012

    Been working a Handy 11 for the last couple of days while back visiting the parents. Been holding well and he spice on i is fitting in perfectly with the season.

    Greg, I'd be happy to take some of your snow. We've had nothingyet to speak of in MN or IL and it just doesn't feel right without it.

    Merry Christmas everybody!!

    It was all wheaters last night. Went MM, OWA (old label), PHC 2010, and WLW 2009.

    Wow been a while since I tapped into the PHC and its like trying it for the first time again. It is just amazing.

    Also, the WLW is my first and I just cracked it open for the first time last night. Wow its great too. I really spoiled myself last night.

    After Santa delivered all the gifts, ate the fruitcake, and smoked the pipe we laid out for him he had a few shots of SW juice:

    VSOF from the BHC collection,
    OF 1849, bottled 37 or so years ago.

    The first was really good, sweet, classic SW profile. The 1849 was a bit more like Weller Centennial with the glue/solvent profile and a little more barrel and bitter.

    I think Santa had a good time!

    Had a small Christmas morning pour of Woodford, my sons bought me a liter for Christmas. Now I'm onto my OWA/Weller 12 vatting. This combination is better with each and every pour.

    Merry Christmas SBers.

    Had small pour of Weller 12 to start day and a pour of White oak Kentucky Shine (some good old fashioned Christmas whiskey). Merry Christmas!

    A 15 ml pour of PVW 20 during the Christmas morning family gift festivities. Its light and subtle nature (or maybe muted and watery ) make it the perfect special morning sipper. Now back to coffee with lots of cooking prep to go.

    The OESO was a Binny's bottle that a fellow member was kind enough to acquire for me bout this time last year. It was very, very yummy and I forgot to mention that it became a ghost of Christmas past in the wee hours this morning....but, I made it last as long as I could. After the wonderful VW rye, it was nice break from the rye 'bite'. It kinda reminded me a bit of a vanilla & cinnamon swirl pound cake. I am more fond of the 4R 'OB' recipes that are heartier on the rye side but the Binny's bottle was definitely a special treat and one I shall miss.

    I agree 100% - the ryes are also very holidayish to me as well...great winter whiskey!

    Good to see you on here, Andy! It's been a while.
