    What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

Every time i have some of that, i swear its the best thing ive ever tried. Too bad it's $50 a bottle. But, having it as a special occasion drink makes it more memorable and enjoyable i guess
    Gotta draw the line somewhere, and there's tons of good sub-$40 stuff, but you're missing out on a lot of good things with that limit.

    Best regards, Tony

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    Yesterday, I bought and drank my first try of EWBIB. The taste profile is very similar to HHBIB 6yr, just a little thinner mouth feel and a little lighter in color. At $2.50 more then the HH, it won't be a repeat purchase.

    exactly what ive been saying. i am willing to bet that HH's strategy is to eventually get this EWBIB out nationally and then do away with the HH 6 BIB. more money in their pockets....give it time.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    After picking up my allotment of GBS ETL along with a couple of ETL's from the 2nd barrel I had a little SBSBSBS.

    It included the GBS ETL pick, the 2nd ETL barrel pick, a standard ETL off the shelf and for fun a bit of the inaugural GBS EC12 (which is closer to 15yo).

    Started with the EC12 which was quite nice, dry, a bit of oak/tannins and had a dry and somewhat short finish. The GBS ETL was a completely different profile of course with the rye spice right up front, a bit of caramel and a spicy and longer finish than the EC12. The 2nd Barrel ETL was similar of course but a bit less rye spice and just a bit less complex for lack of a better word. The off the shelf ETL, usually a favorite, was downright bland compared to the two barrel picks which might have been the biggest surprise of all. The blend of many barrels really seemed to subdue it.

    Or maybe by then the palate was on overload...

    The GBS ETL was the obvious winner among the three ETLs although admittedly this wasn't a blind test.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    I've never even seen HH 6 BIB locally but there is always plenty of EWBIB and the regular NAS HH BIB.

    Well, yes, if they can get the same or better price for NAS they're gonna do it and should be fired if they don't.

    Doesn't mean I hafta like it though.
