Livened up breakfast with some Barton.
Noah's Mill for me last night, very tasty!
Sipping some Vintage Bourbon 17 for the first time. Very enjoyable. Sweet, lots of caramel, not very complex and light finish, but nose opens up with some air and very tasty if you like wheaters. Reminds me a lot of ORVW 10 year at lower proof.
OWA TPS bottling. Caramel goodness to start the night.
Just opened a fresh bottle of Grand Dad.
I am getting reading to open a bottle of VBT #464.
Yeah, who'd you say made that?
High West, pretty good taste.
M&M 5yo ('80) - glad I bought the store out, this is getting better as the bottle winds down. I doubt it would get pegged as a bourbon in a blind tasting, tho.
Now, a fresh bottle of YL - Yup, there's a real resemblance. The fruit is remarkably similar, but the YL has more cream throughout, less spice on the finish and no tobacco (just a bit of bitter oak). I look forward to tasting how the YL develops.
I wonder - if the YL was bottle-aged for 30 years, would it end up closer to the M&M?
