    What bourbon are you drinking today? Autumn '12

    Weller 19
    Wild Turkey Tribute 15 year, Japanese import
    Hirsch 22 Rye
    Rittenhouse 21 year
    Evan Williams 12 year, Japanese import
    EC 20

    On Wednesdays at the Spoke, everything is half off. And the pours are more than generous. Great place.
    They pour by the fist, and it is truly one of the very few bars in the world where even SB.com bourbonians can drink great American whiskey that they've never had before.

    I really, really liked that EW 200th Ann red 12/101.

    Started out with a Weller antique on the "rock". Bars in NYC are starting to use just one giant ice cube in your glass, I find it awkward as the cube crashes from side to side in the glass. I understand the rationale of the ice melting more slowly in the glass, etc. Not sure about the trend. Followed that up with some Jefferson Presidential 18 year 94 proof, neat. That was some wonderful stuff, so good I had 3 of those. I'll have to keep an eye out for that one.

    Working on a newly opened New Holland "Beer Barrel Bourbon". So far, I am impressed. I believe it was Josh who said this is LDI-sourced whiskey? The Harrison bourbon from LDI was not very good, IMO. But, this is much, much, better than that. From color to finish. I don't know if it's the 3 months finishing in beer barrels that does it, but this whiskey is hitting some right notes with me.

    Cool. Didn't care for the regular Harrison, but thought that the barrel strength wasn't bad at all. Haven't seen the New Holland around, but may grab one if I do.

    I have a bottle myself, but I haven't opened it yet. Yes it is LDI/MGPI

    I agree with that. I thought the barrel strength was good too, but last time I was in Old Country, I noticed it was going for $60. It was marginal at $50, at $60 it's a pass. I did notice they have a new 16 y/o age stated release President's Reserve, Grouseland Cache for $100 IIRC. A portion of the proceeds goes to support the Grouseland Mansion in Vincennes, Indiana. http://www.harrisonbourbon.com/grouseland.html

    Given the price and bad reports of this bourbon at similar ages, that's a pass for me too. Maybe I'll just write a check to the Grouseland Foundation.

    As for me, just finishing off a bottle of OGD BiB. Hits the spot nicely.
