I believe I hear the head of the Bourbon family calling as well.
BT followed by Bulleit. I may have got a mellow batch, but this BT is just way too mellow. It shows much less alcohol than it's proof, but also much less flavor than I'd prefer - a diluted Blanton's (thought I'd never dilute Blanton's). The Bulleit is rougher, but more flavorful (even if some flavors aren't so good, like charred corn).
I'm setting aside a sample of the BT to compare with my TPS selected BT.

Loving some ECBP on a Thursday night. Unfortunately forgot to load my Death Star ice globe before diluting, as I think this is the perfect dram for that!

I decided to heed the call and poured some Old Grand Dad.
The last pour of FRsmB..it might the last pour I have of this for awhile. A revelation showed me I can buy FRSB cheaper than the small batch, and I loves me some TPS FRSB
And with summer just around the corner, MC and HH BIB 6yr refrig style, is on deck

A little EC12. This particular bottle is a private selection from a store by my parents. Seems Heaven Hill was quite proud of this one as they named it "The Rockstar" on the label where it says "Bottled for...". I must admit, this is the best EC12 I've had yet. The wood seems a little more prevalent with this one, with a creamy, buttery toffee finish. Awesome. I hope there's still some left at the store the next time I visit the folks.
