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

    OGD 114 all week. After having gone through about 3 bottles over the last year or so, I'm still impressed by the price/value ratio of this bottling.

    So I had another pour of this tonight after about a week. Has some heat in the beginning that I don't remember from the first time. Still not my thing but not because its bad. I will probably sit on it for a month or so and revisit it then.

    What bourbon are you drinking today? Autumn '12

    I opened a bottle of VOB BiB last night to put the brakes on a cold creeping up on me, and got soot. My last bottle, upon first opening, was full of sour bananas that dissipated after a few weeks of breathing, so I'm hoping the soot in this bottle goes the same way.

    I followed it up with a bottle that appears to be quite popular around here of late: OGD114. Not an off note to be found. It's the only product I find that Beam does well.

    Last night, a 50/50 blend of FR1B and WSR. Having enjoyed the FRsmB and FR Yellow to varying degrees, I was caught off guard by the profile of FR1B (or at least this bottle). Came across to me as thin and spicy, and was not "opening up" with 1/2 the bottle gone. Anyway, I thought a blend with WSR was worth a try, and it worked out nicely to my taste. Balanced each other out well, and better than each on its own imho. Sometimes ya gotta improvise...

    If you like to do some mingling of whiskeys you owe it to yourself to read some Gary Gillman posts. He's been on the forum since 2002, has 8313 posts and is our resident expert of the art. Maybe you have already but just thought I'd mention it. And your combo makes absolute sense with the two you used. Suprised to hear of a 4R1B being thin but that's the gamble of single barrels.
