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

    Great idea on the Jefferson's 17 since I just found another bottle of it, wish I would've thought of it. But...Parker's Heritage 2012 takes on a new level of tastiness.

    Finally opened my PHC wheater. Yeah, it lives up to the hype.
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.

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

    Just drinking some plain old WT101 tonight. Nothing special. I struck out on BTAC this year and will probably end up doing the same on PVW this release. Kind of a bummer. But then I remind myself that over the past few years I managed to get (and subsequently drink) several bottles of every ORVW/PVW offering (minus the prohibitively expensive 23yr). So I'm one of the lucky ones I guess. Hopefully somebody out there who is genuinely enthusiastic about bourbon was able to get their hands on a bottle of PVW for the first time this release and enjoys it. But I fear that PVW has become a status symbol that know-nothings clamor for just so they can say they have a bottle.

    Plain old MM for me. Pretty good. I'm beginning to think there really is no bad bourbon. :-)

    Opened two bottles of bourbon today because the open category has dwindled recently and just realized all I have open is rye. The first was the 2012 PHC. Wow, big boy with a big flavor
    Profile. The marriage of wood, sweet wheat and rye are fantastic in this one. I can't wait for a tasting with my brother and neighbor.

    Te second bottle was equally enjoyable to me for less than half the price. It was the TPS 4R's SB offering from last year. I do love some of the gems that Jay comes across.

    Popped open the Binny's hand picked Willet 8 yo Wheater. This is the most complex under 10 year old bourbon I've ever tasted. Starts with loads of dark fruits followed by some oak mid palate and finishes with vanilla and nougat that lasts forever. So little burn and very drinkable at barrel proof 122.1. I'm going to pick up a couple more bottles of this Saturday at the SB get together.

    Rock Hill Farms. To be honest, the RHF was so good last night that I felt a little silly for spending so much time and effort tracking down the yearly releases. Glad to know there are fantastic bourbons like this that I can find on the shelves.
