    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    Had a pretty epic day out at some bars. My buddy and I decided to see what we could find around some of the neighborhood bars. In order we had Parker's 27, Parker's Golden Heritage, Old Rip 107, Woodford Maple Finish, EHT Tornado, Handy, Dickel 14, and Parker's Blend of Mashbills. I'll be feeling it tomorrow but we found some awesome stuff. Hands down deal of the day was the pour of Handy that I got for only $9!!

    My friend, that is an amazingly coherent post for all you drank!

    I'm doing the best I can to keep it together! Sleep is much needed right now but I'm surprised I survived.

    Well, I have to say I'm disappointed. Major BT funk on the nose, hot, not much interesting going on. The last bottle I had of Eagle Rare was amazing and so much better than this, I could've bought almost two of them for the price. Hope this gets better with airtime.

    I'm about to pour a side-by-side of Buffalo Trace. I'm honestly scared its going to be better.
    Can't say I've heard of "BT Funk" (usually it's Beam) -- I've had some BT bottles that were a bit more musty/dry than the average, is that what you mean?

    Indeed. And I rescind most of that comment after having a few drams. I actually really like it, and definitely more enjoyable than a selected barrel of the BT.

    For some reason, the only CEHT offering that has hit me right was the Tornado. The barrel proof, rye, and small batch came across as overpriced and ordinary (although I didn't get a "funk" - is that the grassy elements you get with BT, but turned up too high?)

    More like the earthy scents of a forest floor.

    A splash of OF Signature in the morning coffee.
