    Re: What bourbon are you drinking today - Summer 2012

    My vote for Bourbon of the Year, and Whiskey of the Year: The 2012 PHC. This whiskey is nothing short of Magnificent. I thought that maybe my first taste of this a couple of weeks ago was influenced by the great setting in which I tried it. At that time I was absolutely floored by this PHC. Now, trying it again, it is as stunningly good as it was then. From nose to finish, it is positively liquid Nirvana.

    Loving this Willett 11 yr bourbon I picked up at KBF. Reminds me of GTS-light (which I mean as a compliment!) Caramel and candied fruit . . . so glad it is Friday!

    Found a watering hole with 1990 OF BIB. As good as you all (y'all) have said.

    Weller12, Barclay's BIB 1972, and Dixie Dew, for no related reason.

    Started with a stiff belt of Mellow Corn, moving on to Ritt BiB which is outdoing itself tonight.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    Wow my IPad sent my previous post on its own. Anyway Colonel Lee ... From Total Wine and is a Barton product. 8yrs old and very tasty. Me, being new to bourbon take that what it's worth. No real mention of this brand anywhere here.

    Small-pour tastings of: WTR101, Ritt BiB, Baby Saz and Henry McKenna 10-year Loch & K(e)y selection, to compare my current open ryes.

    Determination: WTR101 is still the punchiest, Ritt is a nice smooth sipper and I should pick up a few more bottles, Baby Saz has the deeper and more interesting flavors, and the Henry McKenna makes a nice non-rye "control whiskey" for this particular tasting. I should also buy some other ryes for more variety...

    Started wish a fresh bottle of larceny. Great stuff, not as thick and chewy as OWA and a bit more fresh than Weller 12. A nice middle for me with tons of potential after it develops in the bottle. After that some single barrel JPS 18 then back to the larceny!
