    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Winter 12/13

    Julio's selection Henry McKenna BiB after cleanup after wallpaper removal in the master bedroom.

    The rose-pink chrysanthemum figured wallpaper (where the blooms formed an intriguing yet madness-inducing honeycomb sort of pattern) is GONE! Underneath the wallpaper, we found the date the paper went up (June 1981) and the whole family's names on the plaster wall surface, written in by one of the kids -- very cute!

    I think I'll follow this pour with a little Rock Hill Farms, and then off to bed. Easy day at work scheduled for tomorrow.

    ORVW 10/107

    I was impressed with each pour... kept getting better. Gonna finish the night off with one more ORVW when I figure out what movie to watch.

    Excellent! How does the '08 compare with the '12?

    I'm not the best with tasting notes and the '08 had been open for over 2 years while I just opened the '12 tonight but I would say the '08 was softer and a bit sweeter, both my 15 and 23 from '08 kind of remind me of a port wine, the '12 tastes hotter and a bit spicer, it reminds me more of Lot B, Weller 12 and OWA, they taste more like cousins than siblings to me but it could have to do with air time. Like I said though I'm not so good with tasting notes, I'm kind of a "peasant" when it comes to that sort of thing.

    Thanks. My tasting notes are usually something like "delicious." I'm sure these all merit that description.

    That they are, for sure! Describing tastes is tough for me but I like to think that I'm getting a better handle on it, (honestly that was the 1st time I have tried publicly) I find drinking wine and beer from time to time and trying to pick out specific flavors helps me with my bourbon tastings.
