    had a few sips of my Jim Beam 6 Grain last night - different but not unpleasant.

    Having a few sips of an EC12 I bought in 2009 from the bunker, I've had my share of bad bottles of EC12 but damn this one I have open now is outstanding. Huge hits of caramel and butterscotch sweetness with a touch of smoky flavour to boot. Wish they were all consistently like this bottle. Beautiful!

    It is no secret that I love that elixir of the gods, bourbon.

    Been finishing off most of my 'almost empties' lately as I'm moving house/bunker and didn't want to put them through the stress of the move. EC12, Woodford Reserve, Buffalo Trace, American Honey and Basil Haydens.

    Also at http://www.b-fonline.com/facebook/Ge...US/fathersday/ for anyone interested $55 will get you a bottle of 700ml Gentlemen Jack that is engraved for 'free' considering you can get Gentlemen at $40 if you're lucky it's not the best deal but worth considering. Free postage for the next 30 people, going fast (was still at 500 days ago), otherwise postage is $12.

    Tried the JD Honey last night. Although incomparable to the American Honey i would much prefer the JD. Its smokier and less sweet. And damn well smoooooooth on the rocks.
    I have 3 drinks left in my 2008 WLW which Im thinking of enjoying tonight.. which would pave the way for opening my 2009 GTS!!

    Like others I have been finishing off some bottles. Sazerac 6yr rye and Four Roses Single Barrel, which is damn good at 50%

    Stones you got me thinking about giving EC12 another crack.

    Went through a few different OWA single barrels this evening. Very very good bourbons.

    Yeah it was outstanding, I remember buying it for $42 in 2009 now it retails for about $60. $40 is worth the gamble but $60 is a bit steep if it's a dud bottle.

    For $42, I was prepared to use if as a mixer, but for $60, I'll be taking any funky tasting bottles back to Dans and complaining.
