    I agree, IMO the finish is where a good whiskey becomes great.

    I'm not a regular morning drinker like some, but I have had occasion to drink bourbon during morning hours, and it was at such a session that the PHC wheater finally revealed itself to me as the exquisite package it is.

    I have a very strong sense memory associated with morning and the PHC wheater. I've only gone through one bottle, but I've managed to bunker a handful away, so someday I'll revisit it.

    Oh, and I haven't touched bourbon since last Tuesday, which is quite the fast for me. The only problem with enjoying whiskey is that your intestines must be in some sort of sound working order. Otherwise you're inviting more pain than pleasure. Happily, I seem to be recovering, but for some reason I've stuck with Irish and rye tonight; I'm saving the bourbon for when I'm closer to 100%.

    I've had the pleasure of easing back into it with Michael Collins 10yo Single Malt Irish, High West 21yo rye, HW 16yo rye and now Saz18 2011. I'm shocked at the resemblance of this Saz18 to the VWFRR, but I'll leave that for another post.

    Been struggling lately with what to pour on any given evening. A good peovlem to have since I have found so many more tastes rhat I enjoy which has brought me to this point. I of xourse alwaus have my fallbacks, but evem those have changed. It used to be my fallnacks were Maker's Mark or Jim Beam Black, but they seem ro have been swapped out for Knob Creek or Old Weller Antique.

    Tonight, Knob got the call as the go to choice.

    Here's to hoping that 100% comes sooner rather than later.

    Opened a bottle of current Vintage 17 tonight. This is good stuff on the first pour, and I'm really looking forward to what it'll be like in a couple of weeks. It seems like it's going to open up nicely. Anyone else who has had this around for a while care to comment?

    Tonight I started with a Manhattan made with Bookers and some orange bitters - nice. Then a pour of Noah's Mill - nicer.

    Expect that Vintage 17 to get a touch richer with some air time in the bottle.

    2 pours. Started off with a touch of OF Signature from the beer fridge. As wonderful as usual. Now watching the Haney Project with Herman Edwards as his student, with a pour of McScrooge's 7yr OWA. I'm sure if I had to play a round of golf with Herman Edwards, I would need this entire bottle of OWA to keep me from going coo-coo. He's nuts! This OWA is stunningly good.

    Because I know how to treat a lady, Karen and I rocked Valentine's Day by doing taxes and financial aid forms. But, I did pour her some wine and myself some bourbon.

    Went back to ER10 tonight, which has been a standby for me the last 2 months or so.
