    i was making that statement light heartedly, because that 1789b bottling is so good. of course you'll want to know who's doing the picking or taste it yourself first.

    but i do have to say that every one i've tried has been very good to excellent. even the party source 6 year old i thought was very good. i have no regrets making that purchase.

    2011 went out with some Beam Rye. 2012 started with a resolution to never drink Beam Rye again. Fortunately it was insipid enough to prevent anything close to a hangover.

    Enjoyed a few different bottlings of VWFRR followed by a few Weller SR and cokes.

    Following Chuck's suggestion, I rang in the New Year with a Seelbach cocktail. I used Evan Williams Single Barrel 1998 for the bourbon component. It was excellent.
    "Good" may be subjective, but that doesn't mean it's arbitrary.

    Some WR-based Manhattans, Pappy20, Pappy15, some Leinie's and some Yuengling, a glass of bubbly, and then a lot of Powerade.
