    What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    I really can't thank everyone enough for all the help!
    So... I'd buy the ECBP but I'm in favor of all of your options.

    And I'd open it. Screw experience. Not like you have to drink it all tomorrow.

    I third the previous comments. Grab the ECBP. You can always water it down if the barrel proof proves a bit too strong to you at the moment. But honestly, even for a 137 proof bourbon, it's still amazingly smooth. All your options are quite tasty though.

    Two pours of '93 WT80. Mmm, I detect oily, fruity caramel with tobacco spice followed by a hint of copper. I believe this is better than FRYL with the bonus of being a few bits cheaper (balanced by lower shoulder fill level, tho). I'm getting addicted to dusties while depleting my small stock.

    a friend just left after sampling the new Stagg Jr. and comparing it to Bookers and Stagg. The Jr has a nice sweetness upfront; Stagg has it more on the back end. The Bookers had a strong, rather unpleasant alcohol taste and was the big loser tonight. The Stagg Jr. is definitely worth having.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    Felt like having something to drink after dinner. Opened up the cabinet bar, and poured a little FRYL to taste while I contemplated. Not bad, but not what I was looking for.

    Digging around in the back of the shelves I turned up a 1/2 pour of WTR101, and with space in the bar at such a premium, emptied the bottle so I could empty a space.

    With rye on the mind, I mixed up a manhattan with Ritt BiB, Cocchi Americano sweet vermouth, Fee's Orange Bitters, and four luxardo cherries. Yum!

    Poured a little OFBB 2011 just now as that's the next bottle I want to clear out. There are bottles waiting in basement storage for the coveted spaces up in the living room!

    Finishing a big pour of the current 4RBP. This bottle won't last long if I'm not careful.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    I'd second that. I understand the budget woes - if you're still looking to find what you like, I'd take $25 and buy a bunch of 50 mL and 200 mL. Although I wouldn't let the ECBP slip by. It won't go bad if you try it and don't like it - it'll keep
