    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    I'm enjoying a comparison between two Four Roses private selection single barrels, OBSQ and OESQ, one a group purchase and the other from a local store. Same age, selected the same month from the north side of the same warehouse. Both wonderful but with not-so-subtle differences. Tonight I'm favoring the lower rye recipe, which has a silky mouth-feel and buttery flavors. It seems to let the effect of the yeast show through more than the B recipe. Tomorrow might be different. Something to look forward to while I'm sitting at my desk preparing for an operations audit.

    What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    Had a troubling development with work. Going to drown the sorrows starting with an EC12.

    Don't drown your sorrows, begin the good times with EC12. It will all get better starting with your mood. Sometimes bourbon helps clears your thoughts. Seriously though, I hope everything is ok.

    Starting off with a pour of OWA 107, and will probably finish off with some Eagle Rare 10 yr.

    What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    Thanks bud! I'm being more than a little melodramatic. I'm a photographer/videographer and I deal in massive amounts of data. Recently my backup drive went down and I have a replacement en route...but now my primary is acting strange. Just crossing my fingers until I can get everything transferred over.

    On the other hand, I've been wanting to work a little less this week. Time to grab a barrel proof something and toast to that

    Started the evening with Towne Branch. Nothing special, but it's bourbon.

    I hate it. I'm trying to get rid of it as fast as I can!

    Seriously though, it's distinctly FR, full bodied, and oddly spicy on the palate. I say "oddly" because a few members and I tasted this and the OBSO SBS and expected more spice from the (younger) high rye. It did have a spicier finish, but the E has more palate spice and thicker mouthfeel. Both could be indicative of the extra time in the wood. This OESO was a big hit at this past weekend's get-together with both experienced drinkers and newcomers alike.
