    I'd tend to agree, mid 70's in MN already, you bet it's spring!! I'll take it!

    I'd say its spring here in Colorado too. Mid seventies for the past couple of weeks. Things are starting to turn green. I guess this globe is warming?

    The thermometer read 91 on the back porch yesterday. Spring is over and Summer is here.

    Last night was a lovely evening and my friends and I shared some Taylor Tornado, Pappy 15, Michter's 10yr sb, and finished with a pour of 4R LE 2011. On this night, surprisingly we preferred the Tornado and the Michter's to the Pappy by a little and the 4R was least favored.

    Doesn't surprise me that at 91 outside you prefered bottles that were lower proof.

    Re: what bourbon are you enjoying spring 2012 ?

    Strange how some nights your palate is just off. Poured a small pour each of Kahn's EC12 and SB Blend. The nose of the EC was spice, with cherry lingering in the background. A second, deeper nosing reveals more of the fruit with eucalytus and mint now as well. I'm not picking up any vanilla, caramel, or wood on the nose. Then I taste and am overwhelmed with wood, too much wood. Strange, I've never felt of EC12 as being too woody, just my palate tonight.

    Then on to the SB Blend. Still getting cherry on the nose, but not as pronounced as with the EC. Again, a strange lack of vanilla, brown sugar, etc. I drink it and am happy to not have the crazy wood like the EC, but it is still just "off". I had a small pour of this earlier this week and it was a beautiful combination of sweet brown sugar and spice, cherry/dark fruit-but less than tonight, adding to the complexity vs dominating, rich mouthfeel with a nice long finish, balance of bold flavor and smoothness of age, just right. Hard to explain, they both just taste different than they usually do, and neither for the better.

    Drinking Irish tomorrow, hopefully Sunday will bring with it a refreshed bourbon palate.
