    What bourbon are you drinking? Winter 12/13

    Nice evening eavesdropping in the chat and catching up on some shows. Started with Old Fitz BIB, then Willet 4 year rye, and a PHC 6th 137.9. The PHC keeps stunning. So integrated at this proof.

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

    Eagle Rare, recent vintage, picked it up this past weekend for something different.

    First two pours from the bottle was massively old oak. From the taste I pictured the barrel on the verge of falling apart.

    Even though it sound horrible, it wasn't.

    Last night, most of that had surprising faded away. Never seen a bottle change so rapidly.

    I believe further investigation is warranted.

    Absolutely cold as hell here last night due to the strong winds from the north blowing in. What else could I do? '08 GTS to warm the bones!

    Not quite bourbon of course, but I really enjoyed my neat pour of John L. Sullivan Irish Whiskey on St. Paddy's day and need to reach for this bottle more. Smart distillers, aging this stuff in single-use bourbon barrels. "The product of Ireland, aged in America," to slightly bastardize the Cooley Distillery's marketing speak....

    It's a scientific process.

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

    This was my second weekend in a row travelling, and next weekend will be busy, getting ready for Passover and a week without spirits distilled from grain.

    Saturday night featured a little whiskey tasting, featuring a number of scotches and a few bourbons, to wit:

    Loch & K(e)y selected JPS 18 -- not a bad bourbon, but what came to mind was "somewhat faded greatness from the Stitzel-Weller profile"; I just bought a bottle, and I'm going to leave it sealed and set aside in the bunker for a while

    Noah's Mill -- hot hot HOT, way too much alcohol heat

    Knob Creek (regular) -- cinnamony after the Noah's Mill, and a much better bourbon too

    I only sampled a few of the scotches on offer, as scotch flavors weren't matching my mood. Clynelish Distiller's Edition (the bottle I brought as a gift) was great, layered flavors without the heavy peat that I really didn't want, but I wasn't getting that much into it. Balvenie Doublewood 17 didn't taste good to me, and I took that as a sign to stop tasting and have a glass of a favorite...

    L&K selected FR1B OESO -- One of my favorite bourbons, so good to relax with after all the tasting, I'm going to need to stock up before these sell out

    I bought a 375mL of ER a while back for a VBT and it was very oaky from the start. It did fade over a couple weeks but it was still significant. How's the mouthfeel?
    Life's too short, and there's too much good whiskey within reach.
