    Re: What are you drinking, yet AGAIN!!!

    To me, this bourbon does not epitomize full-flavored bourbons

    I would tend to agree there. If you want a full flavored bourbon, get something by Wild Turkey (Like Russells Reserve) or Brown Forman (and Old Forester Product) or maybe some Old Grand Dad. Blanton's, to me, epitomizes the smooth, "sophisticated" pour, a true sippin whiskey.

    Re: What are you drinking, yet AGAIN!!!

    It's Van Winkle Rye 13yo for me also. Just retasting/reconfirming how awesome it is, and to help me decide how much to 'bunker' this weekend. (It's $17.99/750ml this week if I make the trek to Maryland!)

    Legally, I'm limited to 4 Liters per trip.

    Re: What are you drinking, yet AGAIN!!!

    I'm starting out with some Fighting Cock that I got for my birthday. I really don't like this bourbon, mostly because of the nostril-hair-singing smell. Maybe a little ice will tame this beast--er--chicken. If not, I may have to break "Eliot Ness" on it.

    Some laws are meant to be broken!! I've been forced into villainy myself because of the 4 liter rule. Maybe we can get adjacent cells.

    Re: What are you drinking, yet AGAIN!!!

    I have to disagree with you on one point, Tom. To me, sipping is for the full flavored bourbons. Because they are so full of flavor, you only need a sip to fully enjoy it.

    If a bourbon is very smooth, a sip just won't do. Now you are talking swallows (gulps?), just to get the same flavor as you would from a full flavored bourbon. We all know what that will do to you real quick.

    Re: What are you drinking, yet AGAIN!!!

    I would tend to agree. I was using "sippin'" in the context I see on whiskey labels I suppose. The two whiskeys I have seen that I can remember that have the word "sippin'" on the label are Georger Dickel No 12 and Old Ezra 7 year. Both of those whiskeys strike me as rather sweet and smooth, so I guess I have always thought of "sippin whiskeys" as sweet and smooth whiskey (not necessarily as the bold bourbon I would have to actually take small sips of) Blantons, Woodford Reserve, and Van Winkle 10/107 (though more complicated that the others mentioned) qualify as sippin' whiskeys as well using the definition I think of.

    Re: What are you drinking, yet AGAIN!!!

    I'm getting a vision... The mist is clearing... I see it now.

    A car is approaching the state line carrying 24 liters of VWFR 13 y/o rye.

    The car is stopping at the state line. A passenger is getting out, unloading 20 liters, and staying behind as the driver continues across the line.

    The driver is getting out and unloading four liters. A second passenger is getting out. Now the driver is back in the car, doing a U-turn...

    Sorry. The vision is disappearing.

    Yours truly,
    Dave Morefield

    That's the way it is for me, too. I recently found that I got buzzed faster on Rebel Yell than on Stagg for that very reason.

    I haven't yet heard of anyone liking Fighting Cock.

    Dave, you crack me up!!! Too funny!!

    Actually, I researched this awhile ago and found a loophole (it was either on the ABC website or in the Virginia State Code somewhere...) If you have passengers in the vehicle, each passenger can have 'their own' 4 liters, as long as the receipts and packaging reflect a seperate purchase for each person.

    I might just have to recruit a few amigos to make the sojourn with me!

    "You see, officer...we ALL just happen to have this insatiable craving for rye whiskey!"
