    Re: what bourbon are you enjoying spring 2012 ?

    I visited a buddy and had the good fortune of having a few quality pours: PVW20(current release and first time for me), Hirsch 25 year (looks like cola and is very good), BMH 16yr, and I tried the WR New cask and aged cask (not bad, but not going to pay the price it). It was a successful visit.

    I just finished a HH White Label/Rittenhouse BiB manhattan. Guess who I'm rooting for in the first Final 4 game?

    Re: what bourbon are you enjoying spring 2012 ?

    [I polished off my last bottle of AAA 10 year last night. Lots of caramel for sure... A damn fine value poor. I will be replenishing the stocks when I am in KY for the Sampler.[/quote]

    For whatever reason, got the urge for AAA 10yr yesterday and opened one tonight. A little thinner than I remembered, but the flavor and finish are still working for me. I too will be buying some more to bring home while at the Sampler.

    Hey Gary,

    Cheers,

    WSR7-SB blend - Old Fitz Prime mini 86 proof
    A wheater tasting flight

    WSR sweet and smooth
    SB blend more spice, some wood
    OFP needed some time to open up, a bit harsh at first, smoothed out nicely after 15-20 min, very woody, would love to know the age

    Re: what bourbon are you enjoying spring 2012 ?

    Hey, looks like we all had the same thing in mind - enjoyed some AAA 10yr earlier! It had been a while, so I felt it was time to revisit the bottle. Followed by Kahn's EC12 and VSOF. While I agree that the AAA is a bit thin, the flavor is fantastic. Picking up another bottle would definitely be a good idea!

    Re: what bourbon are you enjoying spring 2012 ?

    I'm loving this John J. Bowman Single Barrel that I bought a few months ago. I bought it from Liquor Barn here in Lexington. Honestly, the only reason I bought it was because I was blown away that they had it. I had been under the impression that it was only available in Virginia. I think it cost me about $50, so it wasn't cheap. Initially I did not care for it at all. But I went back to it the other night and I am really starting to believe that a bottle of whiskey can "open up" in a similar fashion to wine because the stuff is GREAT right now. Honestly, one of the better bourbons I've had in awhile. I will be sad when it is gone as I likely will not see it around these parts again.

    Started the afternoon with a pour of WTRB while assembling a greenhouse for the wife. JBB served as the backbone of a Manhattan with dinner. An ERSB based Old fashioned made for a pleasant after dinner drink. And finally a Knob Creek Single Barrel

    Lot B won a blind tasting tonight. May have to go pick up a bottle for the beginnings of a bunker.
