    What bourbon are you drinking in Australia? - 2012

    Since we're still posting on the WBAYDIA 2011 I thought it was about time to start a 2012 thread as we're half way through the year!
    Nice job keeping the post alive though fella SBers.

    In keeping with the title I am enjoying a tipple of Blantons Single Barrel Special Reserve and a nice Weller 10yo on this foggy Thursday evening. Cheers all.

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

    Nothing last night, but I plan on finishing the last pour of my 2004 purchased UK bottle of Old Rip Van Winkle 10yo 90 proof tonight.

    Good to have you in town! If you are in the Quarter, you might also check out Bar Tonique. They have the new Four Roses SB LE 2012 open, not to mention they make a great Old Fashioned, Boulevardier, Negroni, etc.

    After a large lunch at the pub, I'm on the couch listening to Overkill and enjoying an EC 12.

    It's Thursday night, nearly the end of the working week. The wife is out shopping, just me and the dog enjoying a sip of rye.
    Started from the bottom of the quality side with a JB Rye, a few WT Rye's and I may even top it off with a Rittenhouse rye, once I find it.

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

    Funny you mention it, he does like chewing on ice cubes so I throw him a couple while having a drink.
    He has tried bourbon and rye and tends to lick his chops for a few minutes before giving me a score on each.
    He gave 3 out of 5 paws for WT Rye, here's a pic of him saying g'day to you all with Homer about to jump on his back.
