    Still riding the birthday wave with a dinner out with the in-laws. One of those fancy places where everyone serves you in a tuxedo and they have Baker's B-85-001 on the shelf. Well, now they have a little less of it.

    100% agree. I lean towards lower proof (86-100) when drinking neat, and the high/barrel proof stuff for classic cocktails. I don't use any liquid to dilute the bourbon in my OF (no soda, water), so the flavor of the bourbon still shines.

    And made an ECBP old fashioned tonight to stay on topic.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    When I first got Stagg Jr about a month ago I diluted about 250 ml of it to 101 proof and put it in a separate bottle in an attempt to replicate a slightly younger ER101. After letting it sit a few weeks, I opened it tonight and am having a pour.

    I am surprised to say it is pretty darn good. I thought the Stagg Jr didn't take splashes of water particularly well when I first tried it but it is fairly complex after sitting awhile.

    Is it as good as ER101? No, at least not the NOLA I've tried. But for folks who've been disappointed with their Stagg Jr it is a worthwhile mixture.

    SA OS Rye 6 Year to start. Nice banana on the nose to go with the rye spice. Having a pull of Larceny right now. Not my favorite but not bad either.

    Did someone a favor. Was treated to pours of VWFRR and Saz 18 to compare.
