    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    Heaven Hill 8 year. Can't get this one in Chicago and I've heard good reviews. At $9.99 for a 750ml it seemed like a no brainer. Delicious!! Been enjoying it neat and as a mixer with some ginger-ale. Might have to buy some to take back with me.

    The HH 8 year is a home run, which they don't always do but they do keep swinging.

    After dinner out at our favorite Thai place, Littlesmokinjoe, Mrssmokinjoe, and I sat down this evening to movie-night at the casa. Went with a Classic tonight of my choosing..."Fletch"... I roared with laughter all night, Mrssmokinjoe had a few snickers herself, and even Littlesmokinjoe got a kick out of it at times. Blanton's, FR1B, and GBSECBP were the pours of the night.

    We put dinner on the Underhill's tab...

    More RRSBSB. I really don't get why this received iffy reviews. I think this stuff is as good as ECBP and certainly Stagg Jr, despite the aura of those others

    Spent the day moving our daughter in to her dorm for her 2nd year at the University...a mere 15 miles away but 3 car loads and 8 hours later .

    Rewarded the mission with a twilight Barton highball, heavy bitters and ginger, sipped with our great neighbors on their deck. Quick dinner with the bride at the local Mex joint and an ice cold Bohemia. Back home, a spectacular late summer evening, El Dorado 15, a 9 year Willett, ORVW 10 and 4R-BF recipe...of course, tiny pours only .

    You know I bought this bourbon without reading anything about it and was shocked to see the hate on it. My bottle is absolutely delicious and stands out distinctively and deliciously amongst nearly any bourbon I put it head-to-head with. The nature of the single-barrel beast is variability though I suspect.

    I wouldn't say hate exactly, that's an emotion I wouldn't waste on a foodstuff. I mean I dislike Brussels sprouts but I don't get emotional about them.

    With whisky it's simply whether or not I like it tempered somewhat by whether or not I think it's worth the price tag.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    Decided to do a comparison and finish off a couple of Heaven Hill distilled handles at completely different proofs...namely Dant BIB and EW 1783. I cut the Dant down to proof. I was expecting these to be nearly identical, but even the cut Dant BIB remained noticably more full bodied and complex in comparison.
