    Re: What Did You Pass Up Today? Winter '12/'13

    Seeing more of the Old Medley 12yo 86.8 proof bourbon. Don't know much about it and at $50+ I haven't been inclined to buy. I presume it is another NDP?
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Re: What Did You Pass Up Today? Winter '12/'13

    I passed up this year's Birthday Bourbon at more than one store. It was priced around $55, which is at least $10 more than I'm used to paying for OFBB. I generally buy a bottle every year, first of all because its profile is always different, second, because it's easily found, and finally, because OFBB seems like a bargain compared to other annual releases like BTAC. But at over $50, it's a tougher sell, which is a shame.

    Hell, I'll probably go back and buy it, anyway. I really appreciate that there's no Van Winkle/BTAC silliness surrounding OFBB, and I've certainly enjoyed some previous versions. Of course, there've been some stinkers, too...

    Yeah.

    Don't be tempted even by the rye. I bought the rye kit in 2011. It made awful whiskey. It came out with a very greenish brown tint. I am pretty sure the barrel was only toasted. I made two attempts, one with the rye and one with a MBR block dog. Both end products were worse than the white dogs.

    Now, I will qualify I did make a barrel aged manhattan in the barrel. It had been about 10 months since I last aged anything in it so it needed a little work to get it to hold liquid again, but the end result was quite nice. I will do it again, maybe this week. I used an OF 1849 for the bourbon in the manhattan.

    I passed on some of the old medley stuff for 55 bucks, some of the Jack Daniels clear liquid, and 6 bottles of the Jeffersons 18 (batch 16 I believe) for $89. They should just put up a this is pappy sign, I'm sure it would fly off the shelves. They've had it for awhile.

    The Jacobs Ghost is not too bad a lite sipper. Someone I won't front them off brought a bottle they had been previewed to the gazebo.
