    Opened my first Pappy 20. Wow, that is an amazing flavor.

    Opened a FRSB from the Liquor Barn...I should have bought more of those as it's one of the best standard bottles I've had...almost as good as the Hightower/Curtis SB!

    Opened an OWA ... off the shelf from Mont. County Md..... probably one of the worst OWA's I have had.... thin and bitter on the back end. This appeaed to be current stock.

    Re: What bottle did you open today?

    A wonderful day:

    Thanks to the generosity of a fellow member, I opened bottles of Abraham Bowman Bourbon (138.6) and CnB OWA (#60). Plus, samples of ND OGD and Bernheim Wheat.

    The information superhighway also granted me two tax-stamped mini dusties that I promptly tasted: a Weller SR (Louisville) and Old Charter (Louisville). Fun! These, along with the OGD, are a real history lesson that I'm treasuring.

    Opened another Vintage 17 too. My fourth thus far, this one is the best yet--and they've all been good. As I've mentioned on other threads, there's quite a bit of variance bottle-to-bottle, but the gems are stunning.

    I have a bottle of CnB OWA #60 and have been going to it regularly. Fantastic stuff.

    Agree, a very good value. More fruit than the regular OWA, excellent balance, long biting finish. With a few more years in the barrel, it could be spectacular. I read about CnB raising prices dramatically this week; if the mark-ups affected their OWA too, that'd be an added shame.

    One more to add to the "just opened" list. While putting my empty care package into the recycling pile, I noticed it also contained a TPS Four Roses OBSK sample too! Very exciting. Thanks again to the thoughtful member who passed these along. Really made my night.

    The CnB price issues were with Van Winkle and their barrel selection Weller 12. Their OWA was $22.99.
