    How are you liking that 10*? Haven't bothered with any AAA but 10 YO for years--even though I have to go to KY to get it and the 10* is available in OH. (We Buckeyes are just perverse.)
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    Threw a bottle of 2013 4RSmB LE on the Gazebo table this weekend, but never tried it myself. Remedying that oversight this evening, upon returning home from The Motherland. Had I in fact tried it over the weekend, there would be none returning with me today.... Fantastic whiskey. This bottle will go quickly.

    Joe, what's your take versus the 2012?

    I'll try a side-by-side soon, but a couple of things stand out upon my initial dive into this 2013: Firstly, it is wonderfully thick and viscuous. It oozes down the sides of my glass. I also am getting a lovely heavy, but not overly sweet honeycomb hint over the palate. There is also some seriously aged whiskey involved as part of this mingling, but in no way is it overbearing. Finally, no alcohol burn. It could be that my olfactory sensors are completely fried from the weekend at KBF , but even a deep inhalation couldn't negatively overwhelm me with alcohol. Just, beautiful whiskey notes came through.

    One of the things that I always get from the 4R LE's and also the HH PHC's, is a certain sort of "Professionalism". Whether any of the iterations hit me in my wheelhouse, or not, I always come away with the impression that some serious thinking went into creating these bottlings. This one is no exception.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    i tried some Willett FE 10 year bourbon at a friends b-day party tonight. it's far too woody for me, very much like the ECBP seemed to me. I tried the 8 year WFE at the distillery saturday, though, and loved it. need to keep an eye out for some of that. even the gift shop didnt have any

    Started with a nice taste of OWA followed by a decent pour of SB Blend. I haven't had a wheater for a few weeks and was looking for something a little on the sweeter, smoother side. These worked well.
