    What Bourbon Are You Drinking? Spring 2013

Proof that southerners as a whole have a much better sense of whiskey than we New Englanders.
    Yes sir, it is the same decanter. I have to give the whiskey a few weeks and try it again, it is not bad but not great but that is typical of all the 60s/70s bottles. After a few weeks they have all improved.

    Someone brought one of these to Bardstown on Wednesday night and it was gone by Thursday morning. It's the kind of bourbon you can drink all night. Cherry cordial and caramel nose with a surprisingly thick mouthfeel. Overall, a sweet bourbon with more oak than you'd expect on a 7 year old, but the palate is a tad restrained. It's no ORVW 15, but it's good for what it is and is consistent with the better Old Fitz Prime's I've had.

    Out with a friend in Chicago last night, inspired by squire I had a nice VOB. Not exactly in my preferred flavor profile, but had to get a pour when I saw it and enjoyed it quite a bit.

    A local gas staion always has the best ice.
    They must sell a lot because from it's appearance it doesn't look like it has melted and refroze and have those re-frozen flakes on the cubes.
    This is important when making a cocktail or just splashing some whiskey on it.
    I picked up a fresh bag today and I am sippin' on some OWA Brass MUg selection on the rocks.

    I enjoyed the sweetness, It just had an incredibly dry finish which I usually get when I have just opened an older bottle. Could have also been my palate as allergy season is just kicking in around my area.
