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

    Having some Rare Breed after a long walk in the cold night air. Great!

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

    From the "They don't make bourbon like this, anymore" category, it's an '82 Yellowstone Mellow Mash 7yr 91 proof. It's not that it's "better" than bourbons of today, as I enjoy a number of current bourbons at least as much, if not better than the Mellow Mash. But, it is indeed, different, as many of those old-timey whiskies are, as compared to the newer offerings. This one doesn't have that "rumminess" quality, like many of the oldies. Rather, this one has that old-timey, "sweet woodiness" to it. If I were to describe this whiskey in one word, it would be "chewy". And, it's a wonderful treat.

    My first ever pour of OGD BiB. It's not the 114, for sure.

    Yellowstone was a favorite of mine for years, and , during it's day, was the best selling Bourbon in Kentucky.

    What bourbon are you drinking? Winter 12/13

    It's been a night of wine and Four Roses...

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

    Last night I spent some time with WT 101 Rye, Sazarac 18, and a 5 year Willett Rye. I know the WT 101 Rye gets a lot of thumbs up around here, and I think it is a decent pour, but the 5 year Willett Rye in my opinion completely overshadows it with it's youthful power and it's rye flavors. It works great in a cocktail, on ice, or straight up. Definitely worth the $10 extra, and if it remains as available as it is around me, I won't fret too much over not being able to get WT 101 Rye.

    That being said, as always, Saz 18 does not disappoint.

    A little PHC 10 aside the morning coffee. A wonderful way to start a relaxed day where the big agenda item is admiring the scenery outback. A little snow fall sure makes the cardinals stand out.

    A little Barton in the coffee ruminating over the fact my Barton supply is drying up.
