    What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    First meeting was a great time. The casual winner was definitely the Old Fitz. People went nuts for it. The HH6 was the clear loser, much to my chagrin, which led me to not open the Dant (my guess is that it's the same juice, younger. Is that sound?). We sampled the rest, then after dinner had some PHC Cognac and FRLESmB12.

    I think most people gravitate toward the less challenging flavor of wheat recipes in blind tastings which in some respects could be called the modern taste in Bourbon.

Hopefully there will be some enthusiasm and we'll do something like single barrels next time.
    Always good to incorporate either a history or a production lesson in a whiskey tasting, particularly if the participants are not well-educated in what you are serving. I find it helps people remember what they tried, even if they call it "that one that Beam makes that just made a rye and a maple."

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    Finally able to put my feet up and relax now just before midnight, sipping away at my current favorite summer splash, WTRRSBSB 110 proof on ice. The 110 proof and WT flavor keep me coming back, and the ice has been necessary in this heat wave.

    Spent yesterday and today helping some long-time friends of the family pack for a move. This lovely old couple, same age as my parents, moved in across the street from my parents' house in '94; the four of them instantly got along as if they'd known each other for decades. They're in their early 70's now, both retired, and they're selling the house and moving to an apartment across town (Lexington, MA, same as where I live), while keeping a little cottage they own on Martha's Vineyard.

    Mr. L loves a drop or two, and he wanted to share a little of his new favorite bourbon (Larceny) midday today; DW and I were busy wrapping up crystal and china, and the heat and humidity were already getting to me, so I declined and promised that we'd share a drink soon. We'll invite them over for barbecue in the next few weeks, and have plenty of time for kicking back on the porch and I won't have to worry about dropping anything. Mrs. L gave us her mother's china service for eight as thanks for all our help, and we'll put it to good use.

    After a very busy, but very good weekend, a little Rare Breed.

    Nice. Very nice. Good on you. Share that drink sooner, than later. Time can get away from you, you know.
