    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    Finished my honey-do projects, the humidity feels like it's 200%, and trying to cool off with some HH over crushed ice

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    I'm trying a new mingling, and liking it a lot. WT 81 and OGD 80 proof, 50-50. This particular OGD had (as most current bottles in my experience) a heavy Beamy yeast-like hit, so strong I couldn't drink it on its own. (A Baker's bought recently had the same taste yet one bought a few months ago in Florida had not a whit of it, by my lights).

    The WT is quite corny,apparently 6-8 years from what I read here and there about it but it tastes younger to me.

    The mingling cuts back on the WT oiliness - the buttered popcorn taste as many people might call it - quite a bit. Somehow the orangey-funky Beam taste disappears into the corn, or mostly, and you are left with a more complex, deeper, smoother yet sharper new taste, almost like adding more hops to give a brew more backbone.

    The blend is an easy sipper and I can't imagine anyone here wouldn't like it.

    First pour in many days, and OGD 114 was calling my name.

    Kinda worn out after a round of disc golf with my daughter's significant other. Eying my bottle of Breckinridge. Seems like as good a starting point as any...

    Old Tub with a single cube,seemed to dilute some of that Beam Funk and was actually fairly enjoyable.

    Healthy pour of SB blend on a 1" cube in a MM rocks glass. Seated on my back porch under the ceiling fan dog laying next to my chair and we are listening to John Lee Hooker's "One Bourbon". Damn near perfect.
