    Black Maple Hill NAS: Really loved this stuff and I knew nothing about it until doing some research today. I was surprised about all the controversy regarding this brand. I had no idea regarding all the hype with this bourbon. I read some really interesting threads here from the past several years. I'm glad I tasted it before knowing because I probably would have wondered if the hype had affected my perception. I'll have to try to search out a bottle of this stuff but I understand it's in short supply.

    Colonel EH Taylor Small Batch: This was my favorite pour of the evening. Nice up front bite with a perfect finish.

    Wild Turkey Kentucky Spirit: Very good and in my opinion, better than the standard 101. I'll probably be picking up a bottle of this too.

    Elmer T. Lee: Didn't care for this at all. It was just too spicy for my taste.

    I'm definitely interested in trying those two I bolded (CEHT:SmB and ETL). I can get the CEHT here, but not ETL (hoping to rectifiy that during a trip to Cali next weekend).

    I've heard the ETL is big on caramel... Were you able to detect any of that?

    Any more in depth notes on the CEHT would be appreciated too.

    My first pour of AAA 10 year, followed by EW Black (NAS) - both great QPR although I 'd love to get the EW Black at 100 pf+ - paid $11.99 for a 750ml. The AAA 10 yr is also a great value; will be trying to get a few more of these in stock if this is going to go away.

    I hear you. I've got the 10 month old solo this weekend, while the wife has the four year old at her parents. I almost rather have both, at least I'd draw some sympathy.

    A couple of pours of OWA and Old Forester 86 proof. The OF isn't half bad.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    I finally got to try Larceny. I'm really liking it. It seems a lot different than the other versions of Old Fitz from HH. It's hard to believe a little more age, and barrel selection could make such a difference. This tastes like a totally different whiskey. Some one on the B.O.T.M. thread mentioned tastes of orange peel and cocoa; yes. And to think, people saying it's not as good as Weller, and the odd packaging, almost scared me away.
