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

    I'm not sure why, but there is some TV that just cries out for watching with some bourbon. For me it's Sons of Anarchy, Justified, and Archer. For tonight's episode of Archer it was ER10. (nice bourbon reference even thrown in tonight) I picked up a 375 of the ER about a week ago just to try and it's disappearing at an alarming rate. I think I'm going to have to pick up a regular bottle.

    Leadoff: Ritt BIB...does it get any better than this for $20?

    Now at the plate: 4RSB/TPS-OBSV...I dunno, this one is growing on me.

    In the batter's box: Bowman Rye/TPS, 136.9 proof...rye really does not get any better than this at just about any dollar amount

    Batting cleanup: Undecided, Candidates: WT Tribute, THH, GTS....update later if I can find the keyboard again

    I just opened Julio's OWA.I promptly poured half the bottle into a empty OWA bottle.The juice is tasting very good tonight.But I know it will get better with 3 or 4 weeks of air doing it's magic.
    It's getting a little harder to find OWA in MA.When I find it there's only one or two bottles at the store.

    I had the opportunity to have some PVW20 this year for the first time as well and while I was very impressed, what surprised me was how different it was from anything else I'd tried. It was like everything was completely rounded and smoothed - nothing sharp - almost no alcohol bite whatsoever - and of course, no rye. Nectar comes to mind and I can't wait to have more.

    But I could also see where some might not like this quality as it didn't seem to be as vibrant as it could be - maybe almost too subdued.

    I'm curious to hear your impressions in more detail if you'd care to share...

    Just had a taste of a 3yo willet rye after the bottle has been open about 3 months. After taking the second sip and enjoying the long finish for a few minutes, I noticed an aftertaste that distinctly reminded me of a taste I have not had in years. The taste was of the original flavor bazooka bubble gum right as you first put it in your mouth when it was still had a slight dusty film. That was very satisfying.

    I don't think it does. A buddy I do some trading with gets it for $13.99 in his area. I'd bathe in it for that price!

    Started with a nice pour of WTKS dark top. Really enjoying this bottle and it's almost gone. Good thing I have pewter tops in the bunker. But now I've moved onto some WT101 and all I taste is white dog. Quite the stark contrast.

    I am sipping EC12 after a long work week. While I may not be able to accurately describe the taste; sitting in the quiet with a few ounces is just where I want to be.

    Started with a nice finger of Knob Creek, then followed that with a finger of ORVW 10/107. Both are really nice, and I enjoy the contrast between rye and wheat.
