    12 year old barrel proof HH whiskey at $36 is near impossible to ignore. Early impressions are gorgeous nose, with a cinnamony red-hot flavoring. It packs some heat, but it's a flavored heat.

    Picked up my first bottle of 4R SmB. Gonna try it right now.

    Hope it goes better than last week when I picked up the EC BP. Not my favorite.

    I'm curious what you will think about it. It's really a different one, to me. Sometimes I love it, other times not, depending on what I have been eating, my mood, etc.

    4R SmB is not my favorite but others love it. Definitely a lighter summer-time bourbon to me. I also get a slight licorice flavor in it that is off-putting to me.

    I guess that OGD 114 and OWA and FC have destroyed my palate.

    My first pour of 4R SmB on one cube seemed to almost not exist. I kept looking at my glass to make sure I had poured some bourbon in it.

    I guess you could call that smoooooth.

    On the next pour I will try to identify all those different flavors that are supposed to be there.

    (Or maybe it was the EC BP that destroyed my palate!).

    My first impression: it blows the WTRRSBSB outta the water, no question. I'll have have to wait and see how the WT opens up (or, perhaps, how I open up to it..).

    I hope you're adding water to that one... Helps a lot.

    I'm waiting (and hoping) patiently for the opportunity to try this one. I'm really looking forward to it.

    Recently my local spirit monger put out a case of OWA 107 @ 15.99/750mL. Today, I bought the remaining 6 bottles ... after the purchase,I suggested he may want to check his pricing ... heard a loud "Oh $H!T" as I exited ...
    Sto lat!!!
