    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    FRYL last night while cooking dinner, a nice and easy summertime sipper over ice.

    Hmm. Ya know, once there was a time when I thought 80 proof tasted strong, and most of the whiskies I had around were 90 proof or less.

    Havent tapped into either of mine yet but my Blend is running low. Are the Single Barrels worthy of keeping unblended? If so need to grab a generic OWA.

    Far be it from to tell anyone how to drink their bourbon. I like it on its own but some will be blended as well. Will make a great SB blend.

    First time I detected licorice was FRSB, I had to have pours on different nights to confirm what I thought I was tasting, but that was it and I like that about the SB. I have recently (today) A/B'd WT101 and WT RB for the second time, both of which I really like as they are different but similar, one of the common denominators is that licorice taste. To be clear I am talking black licorice which I loved as a kid so its really cool how certain bourbons are bringing back childhood memories, who woulda thought? The licorice I get in WT is more prominent than the hint I get in FR so I would say yes that's what you are tasting.

    My question now is why? Is this the yeast? Does WT use a yeast that gives off a licorice taste and is FR using something similar in one of their 10 recipes that results in a similar flavor? I have only tasted what you describe in the three I mentioned and not in anything else, I am nowhere close to having an encyclopedic tasting history but its broad enough that I wonder about the yeast.

    Had the last of my bottle of Willett 4 year rye, now having a little from a Woodford barrel selection bottle given to me by a friend. The Woodford tastes exactly like OF signature with a little more bite. I'll be interested to compare once the final bottles get sent out.

    OGD 114 and KC 120...........my two favorites (at least under $40). i like your taste!


    but i would expect the EWB to taste so bland if you drank it AFTER the other two. id use it to warm up with first

    Drinking way too much of Four Roses Single Barrel. It's too tasty not to overindulge.
