    What bourbon are you drinking in Australia? - Summer 2014/15

    A friendly Monday hello to all the SBers reminiscing over the bourbon pours enjoyed over the weekend, I know I am and can't wait for the weekend already.

    I can't seem to jump off the ER Single Barrel wagon so I find i'll always purchase one of these and another one [or two ] to experiment with when I stock up.
    My latest purchase was the typical ER and a bottle of RR10yo for a change.

    So what bourbon have you been or will you be appreciating in Oz this summer...?

    It is no secret that I love that elixir of the gods, bourbon.

    Stand in front of the cabinet, close your eyes, extend your hand . . .

    I like WTRB.
    Mint and spice does it for me, and with all that ice i want the high proof.

    Tonight I'm hitting the Blantons hard. Going through a delightful bottle at the minute!

    Guys I need the help of the brains trust. The bourbon choices in japan are insane!

    If its a 15 year WT I cant imagine its not worth picking up.

    Seriously though I havent tried it and cant give any insight other than on paper it sounds like a winner, if it was priced less than two bottles of RB I would take a chance.

    The 15 year is certainly worth picking up the question is whether it's worth the price. I liked it but not enough to replace it and we pay less than the premium commanded in the Japanese market.

    He is presumably basing it on the costinf the Aussie market which is a whole different (and rather frightening) financial beast when it comes to bourbon. And the Yen seems to be weak at the moment so now may be the time!
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…
