    When it's all said and done, when the Weller 12 gets to a point where I think it reflects what I remember my first few bottles of it tasting like, it won't last long in that decanter.

    Thanks for the advice though. I'm glad others have seen this happen to and, more importantly, it hasn't affected the quality of the juice inside.

    1974 WT 101 with a bizarre, one-off Rocky Patel.

    Well the day is done and I'm enjoying my new favorite 2013 FR LE SB.

    hadnt tried WT101 before, so took a 200mL of it in my pocket to a family reunion. i have had the rare breed before.

    i wish WT would offer something like a WT125, then i might be interested. it was the 'smoothest' 101 proofer ive come across, yet i cant say that 'smooth' is what i like in a bourbon. i like a high proof punch in the mouth

    The RB is barrel proof. Can't get any higher than that. Higher proof doesn't mean it's better. It's just that barrel proof means it hasn't been cut with water which usually leads to more flavor.
    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 refuse to pay over $50 for anything.....anything.


    even if i saw a $200 bottle of something for $60, im not going to buy it. too much to spend on 750mL of anything, and i refuse to be a profiteering dick. id leave it for someone who would enjoy it (and hopefully not a profiteering dick)

    i know that, thats why i said id love it if they ever came out with a 125WT. i know they barrel at lower proof. in general though, i personally think higher proofs have better taste

    I don't know. Most think that lower entry proof produces better whiskey. Everyone is different though.

    Edit: ...but proof can still go up while in the barrel
