    That blend really is superb and well worth a try for those who haven't done so. First bottle ever? Drink up, dridge!

    Problem is I tend to go for variety rather than dedicate my efforts toward a small selection at a time. Now with a good bit of samples under my belt, it will get a little more focused. But I did load up on OWA and W12 for this very blend.

    I'm the same way. It takes me an absolute age to kill off most of the bottles I have because I tend to nip at them a pour or two at a time and move on to something else. Only recently did I decide to thin out the herd and devote attention to specific bottles in order to clean out the cabinet. But who am I fooling? That only frees up room for another one!

    Tasty 4RSmB, finished the last pour from my first bottle of it last night.

    I'm glad it's so easy to replace, this one was an instant favorite.

    Four Roses Single Barrel 2012 LE. Wow, maybe the best bottle of bourbon I've ever had. Very very nice!

    finished off a bottle of 4R 120th Anniversary.
    Luckily, I have a few more.

    Finished off a WT KS, smooth brown top last night. Not as good as the previous bottle. Little on the dull side.
    Also killed the remnants of an OGD BiB. Always good.

    I killed a Binny's OBSQ that, with a little air, had achieved what is one of my favorite FR profiles of buttery caramel, rich red fruit and floral astringency. I got it on sale and I'll have to return to that store to see if I can steal away with any more. When I went to reach for my next pour, all I could think about was opening another FR bottle. I restrained myself and had some '08 Mariage from a bottle I opened last week (divine), but if I want to make that bottle last, I'm gonna have to open another FR something very soon.
