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 man can take a little bourbon without getting drunk, but if you hold his mouth open and pour in a quart, he's going to get sick on it."
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.
