    Picked up an EW 1783 10 yr for a friend. Did see some tax-stamped bottles, but since they were Hiram Walker Juicy Grape Schnapps I passed

    Picked up a couple bottles of Smooth Ambler VOS 14y. Cracked one open and I have to say I'm really liking this!

    I picked up a bottle of Weller 12 today just in case they get scarce.

    Although, the store I shop at regularly got some more in today's shipment, so it's hard to say when or if this stuff is going to disappear.

    In Indiana we have just started to get Mellow Corn, and finally VOB B.I.B. I picked up one of each, and some Champagne Velvet beer.

    Another Indiana guy so VOB BIB is new to me as well. I bought a bottle in KY only to find it in local stores upon my return. I really like it! It seems similar to WT101 but a little smoother. I noticed a corn and caramel flavor and the rye. I am not very good at tasting notes. In my book, a bourbon (or any drink) is either really good, good or not so good. VOB BIB is really good.

    I tried it both neat and with a few cubes of ice. Without going to the Whiskey Tree, I am not certain how it compares to other whiskeys with similar mashbills that I may have tried. However, as a general comparison, I preferred it over OGD114, BT, WR. I plan to try more and more, well, and more just to make sure I get a really good assessment but I think this one is going to be a regular in my house.

    I did also try OGD114 and loved the taste, especially with a cube of ice in the glass. The heat was fine but I enjoyed it a little more with the ice. However, I got a headache later. I only drink one whiskey at a time the first time I try something so as to get a better feel for it. I may have just been tired or something because I have no allergies or anything to corn, wheat, rye or barley and I didn't drink enough to get skunked. I guess it could have been the proof but I really wasn't "feeling" it. I will get a better sense after another tasting or two. Normally, I find that I enjoy most bourbons better after a second or third taste.

    I am looking forward to an OGD114/VOB BIB mix. I have to wait until the weekend though! I can only drink lightly during the week and not every night.
