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

    old rvw is only sold in one place in Adelaide, and its $195 for the 10yr 107, cant justify that much coin. I am interested in trying another older wheater though. Any ideas? I tried the WLW from the BTAC, and was mildly disappointed.

    Started off with A Rittenhouse BIB today and followed it up with a Ancient Age 3 yr. There is something that I really like about younger expression whiskeys, maybe its about the lack of strong oak flavours, or the purity of the mash which I find very pleasant! Shouldve bought more AA whilst over in the States!

    I'd suggest Weller 12, love that stuff!

    Or the OWA107, i havent tried the new NAS juice but the old bottling was awesome, should be able to get it for around half the price of the ORVW delivered from the UK, and signaficantly less if customs dont pick it up!

    Finally cracked the WT tradition - gorgeous stuff! I took my time with it and had an initial sip, nice, then covered the glass and came back to it after half an hour, wow what a difference, it really opened up, nose of dark chocolate, leather, coffee, reminiscent of a well aged pedro ximenez sherry! Very balanced on the palate too, i feared it might be overly tannic but it backs off at the right time and gives a long mouth coating finish.

    Picked up some bernheim, first impression is OK, rougher edges than expected, will have to be in the right mood for this one

    On the Scotch tonight. Glenfiddich 18. Also was given a bottle of Drambuie 15, actually surprised it isn't bad at all.

    Yes that is the place, I am also keen to explore some time, would Scottie be interested too?

    It is no secret that I love that elixir of the gods, bourbon.

    Drinking a few glasses of Van Winkle Lot B that I bought for my dad and he didn't really like. Win for me!

    Also, speaking of drinking in Australia, just looked on the Dan Murphy's website and they have Elmer T. Lee as coming soon. Pretty excited for that and considering what the online retailers sell it for here, its a pretty decent price.
