    Some 2011 ER17. This stuff goes down easily. I would call it an everyday pour if the price wasn't so high.

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

    Some circa-1990 Forester Bonded. So good. I wonder if B-F did the preliminary toasting of barrels it does now for JD and I'd think its bourbon brands too. The 1990 seemed less sweet than today's (which I like too), more restrained in taste maybe, but elegant. I got this in a small San Francisco liquor store last year, and have to husband it, these dimpled bottles are harder and harder to find today.

    Gary, is your bottle DSP-354? I recently found some OF Bonded 354 from around 94, and really enjoyed it, especially after a week of being opened. Having loved older 414 bottlings, I was pleasantly surprised.

    I'm curious as well. I have a 354 Forester BiB from the early 90's as well, and I found it to be restrained and tasting "aged" mores so than the 4 years in the barrel--with a dark molasses or even burnt caramel flavor that I found to be very intriguing and unlikely anything else I've had. I wonder if it's slow oxidation over time in the bottle or if the bourbon always tasted this way

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

    Enjoyed a nice pour of Weller 12 while watching the espn documentary on Ben Johnson. This is my first bottle of the 12 year and I feel it's improved greatly after being open for a few weeks. As for the documentary, I really think they can make one on girls tee ball and I'd watch it. They're just so well made.

    DSP-414 old forester BIB, I am almost shocked how much this pour tastes like rum

    An EC15 that is rounding out nicely after getting some air for a few weeks.
