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

    Old Forester 75th Anniversary Repeal Bourbon straight from the bottle. Not bad. Not bad at all.

    Ya know, Beam takes a lot of crap on these boards. But, when I sit down and think about it, they do a heck of a lot of things "right", by us.
    So true, Joe. I always have a bottle of OGD114 on hand and it seems to be very popular with all of my friends when they visit. We absolutely fly through the stuff and nobody can believe the price when I tell them what I paid for it. Amazingly good value, that's for sure!

    Luckily she loves GTS and all rye, so he forgave me once she tried the THH. But I'm sure some form of payback is in my future.

    I've been banished upstairs, since Mrssmokinjoe has the girlfriends over for a Holiday drunkfest. Watching SNL Christmas on TV (BTW, if you got nuthin' to do, turn it on as it's hilarious!), and ripping through the bunker. B&B OWA is shining, tonight. The New Holland Beer Barrel continues to impress, as well.

    Couldn't agree more. Maybe it's a gift like EC18 from HH.

    I've had my eye on this at Astor, may have to pick it up. Wanted to see some feedback before making the purchase though, and it seems to be positive so far.

    On topic, started out with some OGD 114 tonight, and then moved on to V17. Both great in their own way. Took out the PHC 2012 devil's batch bottle, but that may be pushing it.

    Qualifier...

    I don't mean to overstate the New Holland. I do like it. But, I judge my postitive impression with it is based on a comparison to the Harrison Bourbon (another LDI bourbon). It is definitely better than that. Much better. But, it ain't cheap at $35. So, YMMV. Regardless, it is solid, tasty, and worthy additon to my rotation.

    What bourbon are you drinking today? Autumn '12

    Started by sharing a few good pours of PVW 20 with my neighbors, then moved to VWFRR and am now enjoying a healthy pour of Weller 12...also eyeing up HW 16, that would be a nice cap to the wheater/rye evening

    Some OWA 107 7yr followed by some Lot "B". Good night for some headphones and music.

    A nice pour of Buffalo Trace.... I skip past this bottle too often (and shouldn't). This is a solid bourbon at a reasonable price.
