    Slowed down for a nice pour of PVW20 before bed and how rewarding it is has proven to be,the right way to cap off this evening.

    Sitting back and enjoying some Binny's Weller 12 while I'm going through and updating my music files and playlists on my computer.

    1792, and it's starting to finally grow on me. It's certainly it's own animal, which I respect.

    Had a pour of Rock Hill Farms last night. This is my first bottle of it and I'm enjoying it, tons of fruit flavors on the finish

    Great minds think alike. I'm doing the exact same thing! (And I think I need a larger hard drive.)

    A 375 ml Taylor 86 proof, with "85" embossed on the base of the old yellow label bottle, surely released in that year as confirmed by the statement on the label of both distillation and bottling in Frankfort.

    I bought three of these recently in SF, and each is somewhat different although seemingly from the same case. This current one is brandy smooth/buttery/fruity and very complex. A real winner and nothing today really comes close, IMO. I believe it may be more than the stated 6 years old based on the palate intricacy, and also, I seem to recall that the Gran-dad distillery (where Taylor was made after the Castle shut down) was not operating in the years prior to the sale in '87... It might therefore be a mid-70's distillation. On the shelf of a store in SOMA, minding its own business until I spotted it.

    Tried one of my Old Taylor 86s last night. This one was from 88 and while I didn't find it as complex as yours, it was plenty enjoyable. smooth butterscotch candy from start to finish.

    Tonight it's V17.
