    HH has really dropped the ball marketing Old Ezra. The 101 should be a nationwide direct competitor of WT101 and OGD BIB, it is that good.
    HH is probably (like 98% sure) the distiller of the whiskey but the brand is owned by Luxco. So Luxco is the one dropping the ball.

    Count me in as an Old Ezra lover, too. I've said it a thousand times, It's what WT "should be, or at least was". Although, it is most likely Heaven Hill whiskey in the bottle, it's not a HH product. It's that whole David Sherman- which may have become something else-thing. No matter, though. It's really good whiskey.

    Bowling night tonight. Let's see..... Pappy 15, BHC George Dickel Special Barrel Reserve, BHC OCPR, BHC VSOF, BHC Weller Centennial (Louisville), oh, and more Pappy 15. It was a good night. What a way to put bowling to rest for 2011. Cheers and Happy New Year! Joe

    Well if I wasn't thirsty already I'd sure as hell be after reading your lovely synaesthetic description!

    Means a lot to me especially right now. It seems a current course of antibiotics has accomplished the rare task of robbing me of my taste buds. I know it's only temporary, but it's such a bummer!

    The only thing reaching me in this state is my bottle of 3-year old Willet Rye. That simple syrup-balanced spearmint is rushing past the fog over my tongue quite nicely.

    Well, thank you. But, I'm pretty sure synaesthetism is illegal in Georgia. I know it is in Alabama.

    Ryes are good medicine. I hope you get to feeling better!

    Opened a Lot B from last spring, and it surprised me -- great mouthfeel, delicious flavors (caramel, sugar, hint of wood, hint of dried fruit), less heat/dryness than the PVW 15 and ORWV 10/107 (which were both delicious in their own way). Definitely a step up from the Weller 12 that I bought around the same time. I'm going to look forward to seeing how this evolves now that it's open.
