    What bottle did you open today?

    We all post to the "drinking today", "purchased today", and "empty bottle" threads. What bottle did you open today, whether new or "de-bunkered"?

    Last night I opened the TPS BT Wheat on Rye II that I purchased Friday night. I can't give an accurate review as I was smoking a cigar. The WSR7 I started with went nicely with the cigar, the WoR did not. The smoke mixed with the WoR led to a crazy bitter wood/smoke thing that ruined the pour for me. I'll try another pour before passing judgement. The nose was excellent, so I'm hoping it was just a bad combination.

    Balcones! That Brimstone is some tasty stuff! I can't wait until we get that in our stores here in Colorado. Cool guys too. I haven't tried the Baby Blue yet, but it sounds pretty interesting.

    Also... 10 bottles???

    Cracked open an '88 Old Crow. This is my second ND in a week after the '87 Old Taylor the other day. I am blown away by the rich flavor in these bourbons and now I see why people speak so highly of them. Looks like I'm about to have a bunker even more full of ND.

    Just opened up a bottle of Eagle Rare 10 that I got on sale a couple of weeks ago. First time I've ever tried Eagle Rare. I like it alot so far, and it seems almost as good as my two standards, ETL and EC12.

    Opened an ORVW 10/107. First one I've been able to get my hands on in the last couple of years. Still one of my favorites in the "under $40" range.
