    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking? Spring 2013

    Found a liter of mid-90's Kentucky Tavern at $14 so I picked it up and popped it open. At 80 proof it's thin with very little finish but not hot at all. Very sweet which is the only noticeable trait. For the price I think it will be a decent summer pour over ice or an easy mixer with some vanilla soda.

    Some Eagle Rare. Not great but not bad.

    Russell's Reserve SmB 10 yr. Not sure how this one escaped my notice until yesterday, but it's VERY tasty!

    I absolutely savored a couple of neat pours of a newly purchased bottle of Old Forester Signature last night. Surprisingly floral throughout. I'm more expectant of leather and heavy flavors in the Signature. This was so floral, that if tasted blind, I would have guessed a Q yeast Four Roses iteration.

    I agree with you Joe. Gary had a bottle we tasted by the pool (versus the gazebo ) against a late 70's dusty. A much lighter style and as you say floral. A very good bang for your buck whiskey. We also tasted against current Fighting Cock and the consensus was the Signature tasted richer and more complex but the FC had its own merits and was enjoyed.

    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking? Spring 2013

    I have read several articles about classic cocktails recently. Many of these promote rye as the "only" whiskey for Manhattans and Old Fashioneds. So I made up some Manhattans with Dickel Rye and Jim Beam Black. I disagree with the "cocktail experts" I have recently read. I much prefered the bourbon Manhattan over the rye. I really enjoyed the Rye neat and with a couple cubes though.

    I got a little heavy handed emptying a bottle of HH White last night. Not sure how much, but enough to raise some eyebrows in the "how much do you drink" thread
