Enjoying WT Tradition to celebrate the Purdue win this evening.
PHC Cognac Finished. Very nice.
Still lovin' on Bernheim Wheat. Wonderful, doughy, goodness.
Just finished watching "The Nun's Story" with Audrey Hepburn on TCM. The Nuns didn't look like that at St Charles Borromeo, let me tell ya. Anywho, in the Spirit of the Holy Grail (In my bunker, anyway)...I'll sip next from an c.1970 Old Fitzgerald's 1849 10 year.
"Casablanca" just started on TCM. Could be a long night!

I was out at a bar last night with a couple of friends - one was even wearing his Illini sweatshirt. But no bourbon last night. All they had were the usual suspects and I couldn't bring myself to pay bar prices for JB or JD. But I was enjoying some Goose Island Fleur - very unique but tasty stuff.
On a rye kick tonight. Started with some VW Reserve Rye, then moved onto some Rittenhouse BIB. Kind of crazy to think I could get 3-4 bottles of the Rittenhouse for the same price as one bottle of the VW. I really enjoy the Rittenhouse quite a bit, glad my bunker is 5 bottles deep.
Broke down and opened my Pappy 20 last night. First time I've had the 20... and it was everything people said it would be. Best bourbon I've ever had. Period.
After a particularly long day, I felt I deserved a good long pour... But couldn't decide... I don't generally have barrel proof stuff when I need to be up early the following day, but wanted something deserving. I ultimately settled on Maker's 46. Unfortunately, while it is good... Tonight it is just leaving me feeling flat and disappointed.
Rittenhouse. This is really growing on me. With the possible exception of OWA, there isn't a better deal in deals.
