    Re: taste-off

    Thanks. I recall that I liked the 17 but it may have been for the mellowness. And like many -- I like variety

    Re: Are you guys STILL drinking tonight??

    This time a week ago I was enthralled by a new Birthday Bourbon. For a couple of days now I am completely captivated by the new Barton offering, Ridgewood Reserve 1792 Barrel Select. If anyone knows or can find out, how limited is this and can we expect to see it from here on in. A bunkerable Bourbon if there is one!

    Jefferson's, I guess the price is not to like,$27.99. I sure do like what's in this bottle.

    Re: Are you guys STILL drinking tonight??

    Tonight I did a side-by-side with two bunkered favorites: Pappy 20 and OFBB '02. I wanted to see if there would be a clear favorite. Needless to say, I couldn't decide--they're both spectacular. My final conclusions were that the OFBB is the bourbon equivalent of a Ferrari--it's younger, spicier, and has a lot more pizazz. The Pappy 20 is more like a vintage Rolls Royce--sleek, elegant, distinguished, and loaded with class.

    All I can add to that OCO is add the OFBBSP03 and the Ridgewood Reserve and you'll have a hefty arsenal of Style , Speed and Performance.

    Tonight it is a little Jefferson's Reserve. After drinking Jefferson's for a while now I thought I would give the original another try. Good Stuff , lousy price . Much Smoother than its little brother and with a fuller bodied palate.

    Good call, Mark. I'm going to go see if I can find a bottle of RB to open.

    Back to the Weller 12 y.o. tonite. This fine tasting bourbon never lets me down. Can't believe it's so inexpensive!

    Jeff,

    When I think of Jefferson's Reserve, which coincidentally I drank yesterday too, two words come to mind "pencil shavings".

    I'm surprised, given your ability to detect such flavors as acetone, vitamins, etc., that you missed the distinct flavor of a mixture of yellow paint and pine wood. It's a flavor that's unmistakable to anyone who ever chomped on a No.2 Blackfoot while pondering a difficult question on a test in school.

    In all seriousness, this is one that I'll be glad to empty, never to be replaced. It's not bad. I would certainly not dump it, and it has a pleasant nose and a certain beguiling smoothness on the palate, at least initially. However, there are many bourbons that taste more like... , well, bourbon that sell for less, in some cases much less.

    Even if they were priced the same, I would choose EC 12, WT101, OGD BIB and Weller 12 y/o -- all at less than half the price -- over Jefferson's Reserve.

    Don't mind me; I'm feeling cranky this morning.

    Yours truly,
    Dave Morefield
