    Wild Turkey 101. Hadn't had this in some years and was much impressed by the current iteration. Rye-forward, on the dry side, synergistic with rocks to the max. A classic.

    Very healthy pour of ETL in honor of the legend! This is still one of my favorites.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    Rule #1: Chores first. As life around this house has been crazy busy over the past week, I finally took down the bunting from July 4th.

    One of the chores was to rotate a few winter-time bottles from the cabinet bar down to the basement (strong, chewy, contemplative, or peaty whiskies need to slumber until at least after Labor Day). Up from the basement came a liter of OGD BiB and EWSB vintage 2003, both ready to be cracked open.

    DW is off at a business function, so I felt free to have a pour while making dinner. I love the EWSB 2003; the gentle oaky note goes well with a gen-u-wine New York City sesame bagel and a couple of hard-boiled eggs from the dozen that a co-worker gave me.

    After dinner, I'm right now enjoying OGD BiB on rocks and contemplating having a piece of Italian-style pastry from the box that was left as a thank you by last weekend's houseguests. If I'd read SB.com a few minutes earlier, it'd be ETL, but instead, I'll finish the evening with a pour in memory of the man. A toast to a long and full life!

    Had some Elmer T Lee. Then moved to Larceny and then finished off the remaining Black Maple Hill and then the last of the Rittenhouse Rye - - sweet Jesus finishing off two bottles in one night. Selah. "Henry whatever will I do?" Buy more she said, buy more.

    I just had some WT 101 last night, albeit from a 2005 bottling, but already this was a few years into the nas label. Poured a current Barton 6 year and HH 6 year BIB for comparison. The WT was my winner based on its noticeable wood vanilla, lacking in the others. The back end char on the WT was also more balanced and subtle, at least on this night .
