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

    Sipping on an old tax stamped Wild Turkey 86.8 proof. On one hand, I'm delighted with that signature, mature, rich, Turkey that I adore...even at <100 proof. But on the other hand, it just reminds me of how far this distillery has fallen from those heady times...

I wonder if it's slow oxidation over time in the bottle or if the bourbon always tasted this way
    At that time it's most probable it was older than 4 years as the glut period was still going. That dark molasses flavor is in the 354's and if you had a tight cap I doubt it's from oxidation.

    Yep, there are many older posts referencing this quality in DSP 414 and some other dusties.

    Larceny. A good bit of it, and I'm vacillating; earlier today I was undecided, but now I'm pretty sure I need a handle of this. It's tasting like the wheated brother of a great batch of EC12.

    Without a doubt it is currently in last place in the standings among the majors...John Hansell announced on his blog today that a nas 110 proof small batch Russell Reserve is being released. Even John got a good shot in about them and they deserve it.

    Larceny day two. Same underwhelmed feeling as day one. I don't feel ripped off at all, just "Eh."

    A big 'ol burnt corner of the brownie pan pour of OGD 114. There are few places on this planet that you can get such decadent lucsiousness for $22...

    Willet 11yr - TPS bottling. Solid flavour as the bottle airs out. Will miss this one in a few more pours.
