    Finally got around to finishing off a pair of budget pours: Baby Saz and OWA. TPS AAA 10yr shall take their place.

    killed off a half pint of ND OT, and decided to dump the rest of a bad pair of dusty pints, Ten High and JTS Brown 86.

    Does the dusty JTS Brown have any butterscotch notes? I've had dusties from most distilleries, and they all have butterscotch notes, but current HH is so strong with the corn, wood, and mint that I'd be sort of surprised if they worked some butterscotch in.

    Re: Empty Bottle Support Group 2012

    I emptied the last of my Woodford Maple finish into some Old Forester for a bottle for mixed drinks/ginger ale. I appreciate any distillery trying new things, but I am not a fan of this expression. Even after combining it with the OF, and even after adding some Mellow Corn to try and cool it down, that hot astringent note won't go away. If anything, it has gotten worse.

    I wouldn't call it butterscotch, but it did have that sort of dusty bourbon richness to it. It just didn't hit the great spots like some do, and I kept staring at it, and the funk growing in the bottom, and said no more mediocre bourbon.

    It was recognizably HH whiskey though, complete with mellow mint/menthol afterburner. All the dusty HH I've had is a bit more potent rye/menthol finish. EC12 pre-fire is pretty good, if unbalanced, starting with vanilla and caramel, and finishing with a kick in the pants, that all makes you want to keep drinking it.

    Man, that is how I felt about my Old Forester 86 and Old Fitz Primes from the mid-'80s. Rare or not, one glass was all I needed to obtain my education, and they eventually sanitized the garbage disposal.

    Cool! If I'm lucky enough to find them, I'll definitely scoop them up! Unbalanced or not, that sounds like a fun ride.
