    What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    I chose the fabulous Gold Foil WT12. A delightful summer pour.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    Yesterday, I opened a bottle of Henry McKenna 10-year, BIB that I had in the back of the closet, and put a generous pour over a small cube which I thoroughly enjoyed for about an hour.
    I'd forgotten how rich and sweet this dram is for a rye-mash Bourbon... Almost like a wheater; but with more caramel and butterscotch.
    Actually, I think I should make this a more regular dram. It's too tasty to save for no good reason.

    The WT12 gold foil is a great choice! It was my favorite pour so far in my decade or so of sipping. I lament the loss of the bottle I had. It was so good I couldn't save it for long

    Gold Foil WT12 is a good choice for any season, but I've found that it best as a summer pour as I've mostly been drinking barrel proof bourbons these days. As a general rule barrel proof are best during the colder months.

    When tonight arrives, I have a quarter-full bottle of GTS that has been around for a long time. Tonight marks the beginning of the end for it, albeit not in one night!

    Starting the weekend early with my first ever glass of WR. I'll have to look up the mashbill but I can taste a higher amount of rye than I can in the OGD BIB. I could be wrong about that, but that's my perception. Cheers to a great weekend everybody!

    The Brown-Forman/Woodford mash bill is 18% as opposed to Grand Dad's 28% (unofficial figures) but the flavor in both is certainly rye forward. I like 'em.

    Woo! Summertime has arrived!

    Last night was the first picnic with DW, and afterwards at home relaxing and reading, with a little taste of FR2012SmBLE before a manhattan made with Baby Saz, Cocchi Americano, and orange bitters.

    Speaking of Rye and summer, I have a TH Handy 2010 that needs some attention.
