    Exactly what I thought, for some reason I had it in my head they would be similar. I could not have been more wrong

    I enjoyed them both at the Binny's sampler the other day but greatly preferred the wheater myself. Sounds like you may be in the same boat.

    Slept like crap Monday night due to an on-coming head cold so I poured a small glass of '08 WLW and slept like a lamb last night. It really is made for medicinal purposes. Really!

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

    I was traveling thru NC and I stopped by Halifax's house for some sampling. m_jolley and C2Walker stopped over as well last night. We hit some
    samples that I brought along (Willett 18yr Doug/Willz 8550/8551, Kenwood EC18, FR OBSK SB), and some small pours of WT 8 export, ND OGD 114 and Very Old St. Nick Rye 17yr from Rod's bunker.

    Somewhere in between we decided to hone in on Four Roses, and the bottles started to open and flow.

    - FR LE Small Batch 2012
    - FR LE Small Batch 2010
    - FR Mariage 2009
    - FR MAWLS P&C #3 OBSV
    - FR 1789b P&C #1 OESK
    - FR 1789b #1 OBSV
    - FR Gift Shop 17yr Barrel 18

    There were some great bottles sampled last night and I really love what FR's is doing!
    You can find me in chat most nights on days ending with the letter y!

    High West Rendezvous Rye. I didn't begin to truly appreciate this one until I got into my second bottle.

    Is it just me, or does anyone else make their nightly choice by nosing different bottles? I find that the "nose knows".

    Now a little Weller 12, since this is technically a bourbon thread.

    A particularly good bottle of EC 18. Very creamy...touch of tobacco. I like it. I've found that if I'm going to drink a 90 proofer it has to be the first pour of the night.
