    Re: What bourbon are you drinking today? Autumn '12

    WTRB, current stock. Pretty good for the price.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

    Finished a "standard bottle" of EC12 last night but, in my experience, EC varies so much it might as well be a single barrel. This bottle was one of the best with a wonderful nose and rich mouthfeel. Hoping the next bottle is just close to being as good.

    Sippin' on some Bulleit right now. It's nothing special, obviously, but it sure is hitting the spot.

    A cocktail with some apple cider and OWA. Think I will move to the Four Roses Single Barrel 2012.

    Very interesting . . . I thought about shooting for an SB blend but swapping out the W12 for Larceny (and keeping 60% OWA). I've still got most of a bottle of 60% OWA with 40% W12, but the W12 seems harder to come by in these parts (and the flavor profile of W12 and Larceny are fairly similar). Glad it worked out!

    Haven't had a whiskey sour in ages, so a double using VW Lot B seemed like a good call.

    I cheated - using Mr & Mrs T's Whiskey Sour mix, and followed the label's instructions in terms of ratio (3.5 ounces of mix to 1.5 ounces of whiskey). I had the mix chilled, so I didn't add 1 cup of ice (maybe 1/2 cup worth of cubes or less), but I like mine more on the sour side. I've had better, but I enjoy my whiskey neat 95%+ of the time - so I'm lazy when it comes to cocktails. I went with this brand because I've had their bloody mary mix before and thought it was excellent, and it was decent as far as whiskey sours are concerned.

    PHC 4 grain, I can't seem to stay out of this bottle for some strange reason!

    PHC 4 grain too (I'll stay with my 90 rating of it), preceded by a stellar light top WTKS bottled on 1/4/09. I also learned a half bottle pour of '12 GI Bourbon County Stout, is the perfect company for these bourbons, or probably any other .
