    Now that's a nice haul. I've never seen any of those in the wild.

    Most of the Master DIstillers are at liquor world at some point during the week doing signings. JT will post a schedule when the time gets near.

    Paul, I think that's at KBF week. I don't recall much going on at JT's, sampler week, other than he usually has some newer bottlings available and the 10% discount he gives us. Remember Whiskyfest in Chicago is happening on Friday this year too.

    As to MD's at the gazebo now, I wouldn't hold my breath. It's a brave new bourbon world in just a few short years, some aren't exactly enamored of the group as a whole (from the mouth of people who work with them) and once your a rockstar your forever a rockstar.

    Found out that a local shop had one bottle left (from what I can tell the last bottle in town) of 2012 FR LE SmB, so I braved the crappy weather last night at 11:30 to get one. Worth it.

    Getting ready for Sunday (can't buy booze on Sunday and I wanted to miss the crowds tomorrow.)

    2 x OWA
    1 x OGD
    1 x 4R SmB 2011 LE
    1 x 4R SB
    1 x Maker's Mark

    ...and I'll be damned if I didn't forget the beer. Guess I won't miss the crowds after all.

    Everydayer pour reload yesterday of a Private Barrel 4RSB and MM 46. I had a longer than normal lapse on reupping the MM46 for some reason, and after sipping it last night out back in front of a nuclear-blast-heat-inducing fire in the outdoor fireplace, I concluded I shan't be so lax again. It's a fine, fine, whiskey.

    Joe, what is it you like about the 46 compared to the regular MM?

    Firstly, I'm a fan of regular Maker's Mark. I've always thought it is one of the most underappreciated bourbons around here. I drink it regularly. The 46 seems like a totally different whiskey to me, however. Almost, more like a rye bourbon, rather than a wheater. The 46 process gives it more woodiness, as would be expected. That woodiness translates to increased age for me, not just the "flavor" of wood. It's well integrated, and doesn't come across as unbalanced. Adds more spiciness, as well, when compared to regular MM. And, that spiciness follows through on the finish. A nice pop. For those who feel Maker's fails on the finish (I always like to point out when discussing MM, that the soft finish in MM is by design. You may want more, but it's not a failure in the whiskey.), the MM46 brings in a more rebust ending. But, what I really like is the sweet wood hints on the nose. I love the nose of regular Maker's, and actually, I think that is the best part of that whiskey. To me, one of the most pleasant noses of any bourbon out there. The nose on the 46 amps that up, gives it more sweetness, and hits me real good.

    Hrmmm. I remember liking my bottle of 46 well enough, but haven't gone back to it in awhile. Going to remedy that here in a second.
