    As squire implies, careful what you wish for.

    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"...

    I just know what I like and the Cabin Still falls right into my wheel house... Most 6-10 yr 86-100 proof dusty bourbon hits the spot for me... The 90 proof Cabin Still just happened to be particularly good.. My wife and I tried 5 Van Winkle era Old Fitzs and that Cabin Still blind and the CS was by far the best pour.

    Bobby Cox brought a Cabin Still to the Gazebo this spring that was just an incredible pour I wish I knew the exact era of which it was produced,out of the many things offered on the table it was truly one of the most memorable for sure.I have tried quite a few dusties thanks to a great many of members and that CS is one of the best I've ever had,looking forward to the KBF and what surprises it may bring to the table.....pun intended.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 2013

    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.
