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

    opened my bottle of PVW15 last night that i picked up the night before. just the opening of the bottle filled the surrounding air with warm, sweet aromas. after pouring, the 15 minutes of air time i told myself i would give it seemed like an eternity. first sip still had a little fire on the front end but after a couple of seconds the full effect of this great whisky presented. this is a bottle i'll savor for weeks

    Completely. The wheater is exceptional and so is the 4 year rye they picked but the 9 not so much. Hope you're well Bunk

    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!
    Bob I'd love to hear how y'all thought the Small Batch 2012 held up versus the competition. Let us know. Inquiring minds here!

    There wasn't a bad bottle in the bunch, but I believe that we all had the 2012 LE SmB in the bottom half.

    Interesting.... Was the marriage considered the best?

    I would say the 09 Mariage was rated the best of the batch bottlings (2012, 2010, 2009). Come by sometime and you can try them all yourself!

    IIRC we each had a different favorite, but 09 Mariage was near the top for everyone. I need to find myself some more!

    Now that's an offer I can't refuse especially being a fellow ND fan! You let me know when you're free and we can meet up after the Thanksgiving holiday. Look forward to it!

    Old Forrester 2007 B'Day - hoping to kill this bottle over the next week or two only because it takes up too much room in the cabinet. Oh - and because it's fantastic!
