    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    A neat pour of A Jefferson's Reserve 15 yr. The nose is refreshing and clean. Not, heavy at all considering it's age. Fresh cut hay. Really nice. Goetze's Caramel Cream candy dominates over the palate. Quick burst of spice on the finish, then it slowly drifts away. As in the nose, this whiskey does not negatively show it's 15 years in wood. This is gorgeous whiskey. I would take this 15 yr over any of the Jefferson Pres. 17,18, and beyonds, of recent years.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    A mini of Early Times 354 - bought a couple to give it a try. It's OK, but won't be buying - starts out OK, a bit sweet on attack, then straight forward corn/brown sugar & a little spice. Youth really comes through on the finish. Much better with ice, which is not my thing but in this case improved it by cooling off/diluting that finish. Too bad they couldn't give this another couple of years, but then again that probably just makes it a VOB 80.

    What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    Had some ER then moved to CEHT SmB. Very different profiles but equally enjoyable. Just easy drinking. Gonna finish with a recent WTKS.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    Usually not much of a mixer with my bourbon but the last couple of days have been exceptions. Crushed an apple with a pinch of cinnamon, a pinch of nutmeg, a half a ginger beer, 2 ounces of Willett 4 year Rye, and 2 ounces of Bulleit Rye.

    A decidedly Fall drink for a pretty Fall-like day in the PNW.

    Finished the evening with some 80 proof Benchmark which is alright neat but really shines with a glass full of ice and ginger ale.

    Some Baby Saz which was not sitting right.........more air.

    SO I switched to OWA NAS and it worked out much better.
