    Pretty much my take as well, curiously, the 15 yr had less astringency than does the 12.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    Interesting - I thought my bottle of EB SB was drier, but I didn't get astringent (which I read as bitter tannin) - I thought my EC12 had more wood influence on the finish than the EB ...

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    A friend, who spent a day dusty hunting in Japan when he was there on business, sent me a few samples from his finds. First up is Very Olde Saint Nick 24 year old bourbon. Given the age, I was expecting it taste like a 2x4, but the wood is largely in check, there is a nice rich sweetness that shines through, and the finish goes on forever. According to my friend, this particular bottle had been on the shelf for over 10 years, which means my odds of actually getting one might be slim, but I'll be on the hunt for some of these old KBD foreign releases when I'm Japan in a couple months.

    I'm enjoying some dusties, too! First pour, a WT80 from 1993. Second pour, a Mattingly & Moore from 1980. I've been tasting current wheaters lately (MM, Larceny, OWA, W12) and these old soldiers blow 'em all away. I have to give the edge to WT80, with a bigger mouth feel, more caramel and spice.

    If you like the 1993 WT80 then you need to pick up that Old No. 8 (from 94?) that I told you about (if you haven't already). I love me some vintage Turkey.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    I have two good friends that live in Japan and everytime I get mildly tipsy my mind goes wild about having them pick me up some of the crazy stuff that is available there. Fortunately they're both a little flaky and I'm pretty broke so temptation has remained (mostly) at bay (so far).

    I have a freezer full of blueberries so I'm boiling down a few pounds of them for a blueberry syrup. I'm dreaming of bourbon blueberry drinks, so some serious experimentation will be going down tonight with some decently priced ~100 proof pours that will go into the drink. Planned: OGBBIB and Old Forester Signature. I wish that Four Roses YL had just 10 more proof points, I imagine its beautiful floral/honey thing might be good in this.

    I'll see if I can bring 'em down to the 'going rate' (assuming it's still there). That Old #8 was much darker than the others I've seen around here.
