    I'll give it a shot .. but I gotta tell you .. we just went at it and racked up "Bad Santa" and spent damn little time talking about it other than .. "damn, this is good!" As Billy Bob Thornton was crawling up to the kid's doorstep with the stuffed elephant and the movie credits started rolling .. we were finished with the bottle. I noted that it was so velvety sweet with dominant vanilla .. a nose that matched the liquor .. and little to no front heat. Actually .. no heat .. too easy to drink. We had it on ice .. and at one point I commented that .. blind .. I might not identify it as rye .. but more pappylike. I know that's not much .. so I should save that one remaining shot for tasting as the entire remainder of the bottle was wasted (not) drinking! You are right about the cost .. I paid $70+ for the 375 last April. Broken down in cost per drink .. a bargain.
    Hah, that's awesome! I love that movie. My brother was wondering at one point in the middle of the movie, when he tried to steal something and ended up passing out drunk, what the plot was. I think that his drinking IS the plot, and everything that happens in the movie is sort of incidental to that. The ending you mentioned is hysterical, playing up the typical scenes in movies of selfless martyrs. It's just the best.

    Oh, and the rye sounds phenomenal - thanks for the notes! I already spent my Xmas money but hopefully there will be some around during my birthday fiscal bloodletting

    Just opened a bottle of 2012 4RSmB. Opened up very nicely with a splash of water and a few minutes in the glass. The nose is definitely more mellow that I had anticipated. However, the mouthfeel and flavors from beginning to end live up to the hype. Very impressive and complex!

    Thank you. It's day two, and I think I just might have another pour before I go to bed.

    Shared a pour of Angel's Envy Cask Strength with my father this evening during a belated Christmas dinner at his house since we were out of town for the holidays.

    Still as lovely as ever!
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…
