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

    Bored and threw together an 80/20 blend of Four Roses OBSO and Yamazaki 12 yo. It's...interesting. Should I call it:

    A bold pour of FRSmB LE '12. I'm surprised there isn't more noise about this bourbon on the forum. Its fantastic! The perfect foil to the Parker's '12 sweetness which may be my next pour.

    Started with JPS18, now onto FR1B. I think I'm going to crack open my Eagle Rare 17 from this year next.

    A healthy pour of GTS '12 after a rough week trying to recover from Sandy. Hope to return home soon.

    On account of Josh , I reached into the bunker closest and poured me an almost 10 year aged 4R SB of the OESF variety...it is deelish!

    Looks like some others like the F yeast too; as these folks from Seven Grand in Los Angeles travelled all the way to Cox's Creek, Kentucky to pick a barrel of the F yeast too...as documented by Tom Fischer http://www.bourbonblog.com/blog/2012...d-los-angeles/

    Worked my arse off in the yard all day. Now, getting in a little Joey relaxation time before heading out to dinner, with a pour of KBS PB selection of Bowman Bros. Simply put, it continues to be one of the most enjoyably drinkable whiskies I've ever had.

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

    Did a 3 way blind tasting of AAA 10 Star, VOB BIB, and WT 101. I'd never had VOB BIB before, and not had much WT 101 (in fact, only threw it into the tasting as I had half a 50 ml bottle left to kill). If someone had asked me how I would rank them prior, I would have guessed my preference would be AAA 10 Star, VOB BIB, and WT 101 - or maybe VOB BIB, AAA 10 Star, and WT 101. Ironically - I was sure that the Turkey 101 would be my least favorite based on my last recollection and hearsay. I was surprised to find that I liked the WT101 the best of these three, followed by AAA 10 star and VOB BIB the least (although I thought it had the best nose of the three, but the least character). I was really disappointed when I learned which was which, as I hadn't been able to pick one of them correctly.

    The AAA 10 Star tasted much younger than I recall, with more corn sweet than caramel/vanilla, while the VOB BIB was unimpressive (the alcohol was most prominent on this one). The WT 101 also was strong on the corn sweetness, but with more vanilla and char than I got from the others.

    Lesson for today - just because you didn't like something before or have heard other opinions on a bourbon, give it a second shot sometime - you might be surprised! Now just disappointed that I don't have any more WT 101 (not that I've a shortage of good bourbon by any means!)
