    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking? Spring 2013

    Finished off my bottle of ETL (staple) and finishing the night with some JPS 18.
    I'm not an expert but I have lots of opinions!

    Another good buddy from the Southland contacted me today and he is sending me up two more bottles, so that's why I am now sipping some.
    OK, here's my thoughts on it.
    The info on the bottle says,...

    "This Bourbon draws you in with delicate wisps of fresh honey and brown sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon.
    Light mint and wild berry notes mingle fancifully with the aromas of orange peel and fresh gingerbread.

    This is true, the "nose" is as stated above.

    Dark chocolate truffle and spiced cookies lay like velvet on the palate

    true again, great mouth feel and taste, spot on

    and lead to a long and spicy finish thatís so soft, smooth and mellow,...

    long and spicey finish, YES. smooth and mellow, I can't say that, I like it but it is a bit hot and bold and maybe jagged on the finish.
    Great stuff. A bit more made it out into ky distribution last week. Great stuff.

    When we were at 4R last week in one of the warehouses we spotted some 14+ year old barrels still aging with a special symbol indicating they were earmarked for one of the limited editions.

    Finishing up a bottle of ER10. Not bad bourbon, not great and not worth the price, but not bad.

    Dry Fly Washington Wheat Whiskey. This is growing on me each time I have a pour.

    WLW 134.8 neat. I let it stand for about 30 minutes prior to tasting. I can still use some shelf and opening time but it sure has wonderful potential.

    I had some OFBB '05 last night...quite enjoyable.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Started the AM with a pour of OGD 86 in my coffee. A good way to start the day. Now to mow.

    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking? Spring 2013

    Killed my AAA 10 Star in my final taste-off between it and AAA 10 yr. First time I slightly favored the 10 Star to my surprise. Second time - I couldn't decide, dead heat. Today, I'm leaning ever-so-slightly towards the 10 yr. Each of the three were blind, so I'm happy that I won't have to sweat "running out" of 10 yr. Both tasted lovely after a few days away.
