    Re: What bourbon are you drinking in Australia? - Winter 2013

    Picked up a bottle each of EWSB 2001 and 2002 for a side by side.
    This lack of variety is killing me, im back to buying bourbon I had written off a couple years ago as do not buy. Even the kiwis get a bigger range than we do.

    I think I might start distilling and ageing my own whiskey, make use of that science degree.

    I like both the 2001 and 2002 EWSB, whats your opinion? These are the only 2 years ive tried, Ive heard the older ones were even better! They are both light and not to complicated, but very tasty!

    Yeh I will get back to you on that one, I do remember not enjoying the 2001 very much, but that was a while ago now.
    For some reason I decided to give my palate a couple weeks off the booze, guess Im keen to see the effects of taking a break from a drinking style of pretty much only >100 proof spirits the last few months, something about absence making the heart grow fonder...

    I have multiple bottles of the 93 through 97 in the cupboard, but stopped buying them when they jacked the price from $45 to $60 a few years ago. It looks like it'd dropped back into the $40's, so I might start buying them again. The plan was always to do a tasting through the vintages, but for various reasons it never eventuated.

    Kicking back and slowly working my way through a old bottle of Turkey I have been meaning to finish as I watch the election results roll on it.

    Howd u go, finish the bottle?

    Havin my first pour of Makers46. Quite different, silky soft mouth feel, hint of young cognac funk, seems somewhat off balance, my instinct is to see how it goes in a sidecar

    Cracked the EWSB 2001, first impression is quite good and heaps better than from memory, prominent anise like nose and flavour, suprisingly bitey for the low proof but i aint complaining! Very short finish. Might crack the 2002 at half time, Go Cats!
