    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    Last night:
    1. WSR (tasting this bottle for the 4th time and have been open 6 months or more, still not enjoying it)
    2. WSR7 (just ok. Not something I'd reach for. Guess this bottle will be open a while)
    3. WSR7 older bottle style with older label from mid 2000s (just great stuff! Superior mouthfeel and flavor to the other two! Glad I have more in the bunker)
    4. EWSB 1997 (just bought this the other day and wanted to try it. I have found that I like EWSBs just ok. I've tried 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002 and they are all ok but none of them really sang to me)
    5. Finished the night with a pour of ECBP 137 proof (just an amazing pour and value!)

    I agree with this assessment. I was very happy to find the technically dusty WSR7, but it is not a strong pour. I love Antique and W12, but I had trouble even putting a dent in my WSR7. I guess I'll live to drink another day.

    Having some Michter's 10y SB. I have a hard time believing this is a 10y bourbon, looks and taste more like a 15y bourbon. I like it.

    This isn't meant as a jab, but why is a 10yr bourbon being marked up to that $? Is it the lineage/source or just branding. I saw one last week or so for the first time in person and couldn't understand the gap between this and the other similar aged products selling for 1/3 the price.

    Considering this new company has no lineage and their source is probably one of the ones selling for 1/3 the price marketing seems the likely suspect.

    Meds be damned - enjoying a pour of GBS EC12 (or EC15?)
