    one day, BF may realize that people will actually buy stuff beyond 100 proof. I never have any BF product in my house, as they (as far as i know) only offer one 100 proofer (OF SIG), and its just not to my liking. id love to try OForester at 120+proof. Id even blindly buy a bottle if they ever woke up and sold some.

    Of course, only if that mythical Forester were to be <$50...

    That does sound good - I really like OFS, and can only imagine how it'd be at barrel proof!

    Decided to repeat a past taste off of AAA 10 yr versus AAA 10 star in a blind SBS. Still leaning towards the 10 star. Next time, going to dilute the 10 star to 86, as I think those 4 little proof points are giving it an unfair advantage On the nose, I get more oak from the 10 yr as one might expect, but not as much caramel as I do in the 10 star. The taste is quite similar as well, but I find the 10 star to have just a bit more "bite", which I like. Adding a couple drops of water to each separates the men from the boys, but again - not fairly. The 10 yr doesn't take even a few drops well, and is diluted and thin, where the 10 star is just as nice, maybe even a bit better.

    Busy day so far, Stagg Jr and Lot B 1oz pours at local shop...enjoyed the Lot B, but blind...couldn't have differentiated between that and W12. Then post mowing the lawn, some GTS '12 and W12 for good measure. Still feel blessed i can find W12 for $25 locally. Need to buy some shelving and stock up.

    1985 Fighting Cock in about 2 hours. I try to drink it when my USC Fighting Gamecocks are playing. I forgot to take it with me last weekend on my craft brewery trip to Asheville...AND THEY LOST!

    I've done blind tastings with OWA and Pappy 15 and between me and several follow drinkers we pick the Pappy only slightly better than flipping a coin. I want to try WSR and Lot B and ORVW 90 proof but I am out of Lot B and can't get the ORVW 90 anymore.
