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

    A nice pour of AAA 10 star. Great stuff at a great price! In the process of making some bacon-infused bourbon (16 ounces of OWA107 with about a half-cup of strained bacon fat). Stuff takes 6 hours to "blend/mingle" before going in the freezer, but should be ready to drink tomorrow. If a success - its coming with me to the next GBS meeting. If not . . . I wasted 2/3 a bottle of OWA107 (so really hoping it is good!!)

    I enjoyed it a lot more then the 2012 SB. But if you like with a bit more spice you may prefer the 2012. I found the 17 to be kind of creamy and worked wonderfully with my cigar, also has a richer deeper color to it as well.

    Best regards, Tony

    Trying some 2012 Old Forester Birthday Bourbon that I just got earlier today. Tasting it neat and I'm not sure I like it. Tastes way too hot, in my opinion.

    I did some tasting and reviewing of Mexican spirits early, but I'm ending the night with Russell's Reserve and FR1B. A wide variety tonight.

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

    Started with a 4R OESK I brought down to about 95 proof, great stuff! Then had a friend over and we enjoyed some Antique, JWDant 31, EWSB '94, and EC18. Amazing how the profile stayed the same over all the bottlings, sweet at first with a refreshing minty finish. The mint was a lot less on the EC18, barely there, which was interesting.

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

    Did a side by side of my Baconated-OWA and standard OWA - and there is no doubt which one is infused with bacon! I strained it several times to remove solids - to the point where in the bottle it looks like just bourbon (not really cloudy, although a tad lighter than the original). But the mouthfeel is tremendously different - it has a greasy/oily mouthfeel, yet still retains the OWA character with just some lovely smoked bacon flavor thrown in! Definitely looking forward to sharing with other enthusiasts to get their take.
