A pour from a newly cracked, family size VOBBIB (decanted into the everyday size). This great value bourbon has never tasted better. So clean on the nose, and caramel dipped apple (greenish on the apple) over the palate. A great medium oak influence on the finish. This whiskey is in my wheelhouse, right now. But then again, it never really misses there.

Heaven Hill white and green. Love to come home to the low end bottles after a busy day. Sitting on the porch, drinking without a care.
Patrick, I know that feel. HH6 is carefree drinking through and through.
I'm working on some EC12 and SB blend on an ice ball.
Finally cracked open the BMH 16. It tastes just like something else I've had before, but what I had before cost a lot less.

I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.
Just re-acquainted myself with Evan Williams 1783 (new bottle, no age). Veeeery Minty! I like it well enough to seek a trial/comparison with an older (10-year) bottle of 1783 in an effort to expose similarities and differences. My baby boy will get me one of those oldies soon enough (thanx Dude!). My mouth is already watering.
WT101, RR10/101 and some Rare Breed for the finale. Good stuff!

After a delivery from Astor, I sampled some Black Dirt bourbon and Widow Jane Rye this evening.
Enjoyed a pour of bourbon from a WT101 bottle at a business dinner (which it may or may not have been - came off to me as a bit smooth for WT101, but at least didn't taste like rubbing alcohol and caramel coloring )
