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

    I'm having some CEHT 1B, the second release stuff. It's not very good. It tastes like a younger and less polished ER17. It handles the 100pf fairly well, but there really is nothing to bring me back to this guy. $45/$75, and that's being nice.

    I grew to really like the first release Sour Mash, so this is disconcerting. I have a bottle of the Tornado that I'd rather not open until this one is gone. Might be awhile...

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

    Friday night I had a pour of EC 20 that someone was kind enough to send me a sample of ( Thank you very much!!). Most everyone know I don't like EC 12 but this EC20 was fantastic it had a finish that went on forever. I have to look it back up what this sells for at the distillery I know it is expensive, I maybe tempted.

    I always knew I could kill a thread but the first time I post to a what are you drinking thread is also the first time no one post to in a 24 hour period.

    I think they're $150. Apparently, the first barrel was amazing (and won best American whiskey of the year in Whisky Advocate) and the follow up barrels have been not quite as stellar. Do you know which barrel you drank from?

    Oh, and last night I had a few glasses of Bonded OF DSP-414. I'm blown away by it every time I go back to the bottle.

    Had a friend over for an informal tasting Saturday night. My palate was in fine form, so I had to indulge. It was the first time I have been blown away by the Weller 12. The bottle has been open for over a month, and I was just getting some amazing smoke and wood out of it.

    I was at the distillery today and they are now sold out of EC 20. Plenty of 4th and 5th release PHC for $129.99 and a few William Heavenhills for $500 though!

    Of all the blind tastings I've done, Weller 12 has gotten the second highest score out of me. I believe it was a 98. For me, it is safe to say that Weller 12 can one up LotB.

    Enjoyed a Knob Creek on the rocks in Anderson, SC at dinner. I asked for it neat, but wasn't bad a little colder. I also tried VA Gentlemen for the first time on this trip.

    Back with OFBB '11 tonight. really wished I would have picked up the '08 version to get a better look at how they compare. So far I still really like both of them!

    TPS Willett 13 (3665) thanks to the generosity of another member.

    Big vanilla, brown sugar and fruit notes upfront that quickly turn into a huge tannic oak bomb with clove-heavy rye spice. Excellent balance when neat (56.1%), and more sweetness emerges with water. Top notch.
