    A few years back, our tour guide at FR suggested a slightly more subtle alternative to summertime bourbon on the rocks or in the freezer: Keep your glass in the freezer. It cools the drink just slightly the way a fine red wine is cooled in a cellar, not really at "room temperature." In addition, the frosty condensate on the inside surface of the glass contributes the merest drop of non-chlorinated water to help open up the nose.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    Flyfish,

    Thanks very much for the tip. I'm off to put a glass in the freezer and will report back.

    If the young'uns ever discover the deliciousness of a slow sipped shot from a freezer bottle of 6 year HH bottled in bond, Jager would quickly disappear from their scene.

    But as long as it takes for supply to catch up with demand, let's hope that doesn't happen

    Tonight I'm enjoying some ORVW 10 yr 90 with a little Toasted Almond gelato on the side - cheers!

    Giving the new Bowman 17yo another try. At 147.5 it is a scorcher that IMO is not near drinkable at CS. Water seems to bring out wood and subdue the sweetness... Possibly some more time but not sure if this will be worth chasing.... Try again in a day or two"...

    Sipping on some WT Russell Reserve 10 in a new Glen Cairn glass. Really great value pour.

    Sitting on the beach around a nice campfire in Northern Michigan. Enjoying a Camacho SLR #4 maduro with a glass of Pappy 15yr.
    Life is good.

    A couple of healthy pours of Bmac's Wheated Wonderland. It's the last the bottle and really hitting the spot. May have to whip up another batch!

    Non chill filtered Elijah Craig 12 (party source bottling). I'll be tasting another private bottling soon and anted something to compare against. Not us ually a huge ec12 fan but this stuff is really really nice. Lots of nice fruit I don't usually get from the regular bottling and not as much earth and wood.

    Working on a bottle of Baker's. I am always impressed with this pour, and surprised it doesn't get more attention than it does. I am a definite Baker's fan.
