    While good, it wasn't "irrational exuberance" good.
    Wow that's quite a pour

    I'm hesitant to pay big bucks for a pour a holy grail type bourbon at a bar/restaurant based on my palate's variation from night to night. However, due to their scarcity I don't know how to taste them otherwise. Rock/hard place.

    A big fat pour of OGD 114. A moment of silence for the empty bottle please. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1375047173.740612.jpg

    Looks about right to me.

    Speaking of OGD, I'm sipping a 50/50ish vat of the OGD and HH BIBs. I think there's a slight bit more OGD. Not loving it, but there's nothing wrong with it necessarily. It's OGD with a slight astringency on the nose and palate. Will probably pour it on ice with some ginger ale when it gets hot again.

    What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    I have not liked the last few bottles of Weller 12 I've had as much as I did about a year ago. I decided to decant about a liter of it in the hopes it'll be better (and because I never use the nifty decanter)ImageUploadedByTapatalk1375049927.015402.jpg. Almost immediately I noticed some condensation on the inside of the decanter.

    Couple questions: is the condensation inside the decanter normal? Has anyone else noticed any drop off in the W12? For those who decant, how long should I give it?

    Searched on here and found;

    "I'm assuming we are talking about condensation on the inside of the bottle, if this is the case don't worry, it will happen under the right conditions (temp & pressure). As long as nothing is escaping the bottle then it will all go back to liquid when the conditions go back to normal. Really it is the same principle as distillation except since there is nowhere for the gas to go it condensates on the glass then falls back into the bottle. I would only be concerned if I knew it was escaping the bottle then you have to hope the cork is doing it's job."

    Perfect! Thank you for that. Well good, I suppose it can sit in the decanter for awhile then.

    Not an expert on this, but would assume not much different than sitting in open bottle after a period of time from the standpoint of oxidation.

    I have a mantle where i keep open bottles in a basement (climate controlled within +/- 5F, don't know if it's shape of bottle or content, but i have seen 1 or 2 do this while all the bottles around them did not.
