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

    Staying up past my bedtime with some high proof Beams. A pour of OGD 114 followed by Booker's.

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

    Took another run at the EC 20, barrel #8. Trying to like his but not having a lot of success. Not terrible mind you but not earth shattering either. Or even earth gently shaking! Nose starts rather unremarkably but improves with a bit of time in the glass. Oddly by the time I had finished drinking it the scent dominated the area around the table and it got almost a licorice quality to it.

    Taste remains quite dry and moderately ashy either right from the bottle or after a bit of time (15 minutes or so) in the glass. I don't mind a bit of oaky flavor but this lacks enough behind that to make it an interesting drink for me. The finish is fairly long and tends to drift slightly towards the bitter side at the end.

    Maybe it as my palate as I had been eating a bit of smoked gouda cheese beforehand (although that is not uncommon for me) and a mildly spicey chicken dish. But it hasn't really gotten better since I bought it a couple of months ago. I will certainly finish it but not something I am going to pay to try again certainly, especially at that price and not knowing what you are getting from barrel to barrel.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

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

    Opened up the VOB BIB 100 and AAA 10 Yr bottles that I just received from my TPS order last night. Both were excellent in their own right, and especially at the values that they are. At first blush, the VOB was packing a bit more flavor and heat, while the AAA had plenty of flavor but was smoother. If I had to choose one, I'd probably give the slight nod to the AAA after round 1, but I am happy to have both in the arsenal.

    It's a little different every time. I can say, I didn't enjoy it with a lot of water, but did with just a little.

    It's a complicated whiskey, and that's not a bad thing!

    Some 2008 Lot B. So much better than current releases.

    Going back to the WR2O tonight. Like the bourbon, hate the price tag.
