    4RSB OBSK from TPS, coming out my nose from laughter when my wife objected to me playing a CD by Morphine, because she mistook it for Megadeth. "I kept waiting for them to start screaming", she said. Nothing but a two-string bass, drums, and two saxes for the whole album...

    AAA 10 start tonight. Went over to a friend that will only drink it mixed with ginger ale or sprite. At 12.95 a liter perfect combination of a good mixer and one that can still enjoy neat or on the rocks.

    Ya know EJ, I keep reaching for that 10 Star, but always pull back. Didn't care for it the last time I bought a bottle...but that was more than a few years ago. Your positive take on it, as well as others good reviews recently, is prodding me to pick one up next time I'm at the store (i.e. tomorrow)

    Tonight, for me, it's Bowman Brothers Small Batch while solving world problems in front of the outdoor fireplace.

    Yep, their newest one. It's fantastic, all subtle 4R and a whopping of dry, yummy aged rye. I'm 3/4 through the bottle and only put water in it for the first time last night. It opens up the rye to the point that it tastes much stronger, even though the proof is lower. Before yesterday I had thought, 4R is so smooth anyway, and this bottle definitely is, even at 62%, so why in the world would I add water? But, it's better with it, and I'll finish the bottle this way. If you get it, please try it once with water- I tried 1 part water to 6 parts nectar - and see what you think. I think it takes some of the sweetness out of it that comes with high proof, and lets the rye shine.

    Thanks to a generous friend I tried PHC 27 year for the first time. I have now had them all and can say that if Parker Beam puts a whiskey into the PHC I will buy it. I have yet to be let down by the PHC. The 27 year was not at all what I was expecting. I had a hard time believing my own nose but the first thing I picked up was corn. I would be very interested to watch others taste that one blind and see if anyone could guess the age or even pick it out of a lineup of much younger whiskeys. Great stuff.

    OGD114 '82, OT BIB '67/'72, 4R OESO, and Redemption High Rye followed. The Old Taylor bottle didn't make it back home with me so I guess it was the crowd's favorite.
