    I'm probably in the minority, but the 'nasty bitterness' describes almost all the bourbons I've tried proofing down (albeit, I haven't tested many). For some reason, real or imagined, I like it better when the pro's add the water at the source.

    What kind of water are you adding to the spirit?

    I'm guessing the BS goes cloudy when water is added because it's not chill-filtered, whereas the regular 94 proof, is filtered (in order not to go cloudy if water is added).

    I'm drinking an Old Taylor 6yr AS I picked up today. Not bad juice for $10.99.

    2010 Old Forester Birthday Bourbon. It was already good but enjoying it more with each pour. Really like the spice and body it has. Hope I can find another one out there.

    Another dram of ORVW90, which is either reproducing on its own at night, or my judgement of how many ounces remain in a bottle are way off. My money is on the latter, but I'll dream it is the first when I close my eyes tonight. Just imagine . . . never-ending ORVW . . .
