A healthy pour of SB blend.

It seems that the harder something is to acquire, and the more expensive it is, the better it tastes. The flip-side is that something that is bargain priced and sits on the shelves can't be any good.
It takes b*lls to admit that something you hunted down for ages and shelled out the equivalent of a mortgage payment turned out to be a disappointment. It takes experience to admit that the everyday pour is as good/or better than the highly sought after flavour of the day.
Also, the more limited one's experience the more the next sample is the "best I ever had"...

You couldn't have descrbed me any better if you would have tried.

The last few nights I've been drinking some Larceny to try and kill this bottle so I can make some more room. I wasn't a big fan at first but it's been sitting on the shelf a few months and opened up quite nicely. The honey and corn notes really show much more after being open a while.
A 1974 Bottling of Beams Choice 8yr. Tasty, definitely still beam, I'd describe it like a honey barrel of knob but 86 proof.
Bourbon only requires a glass.
Of course the only difference between Cabin Still and Old Fitzgerald is proof and age. During the last years of Stitzel-Weller when Bourbon sales were slowing down and whisky stocks accumulating the difference between the two was mostly proof.
