    Out with the old, in with the new

    I'm curious to hear what everyone has for their last pour of 2014 and first pour of 2015. Mine are still up in the air! Have to wait and see where the night goes.

    Going to be mostly cocktails for me, including a few that are bourbon based and the Seelbach as my now traditional midnight glass. But I may start the night with another SBS of the 2 different PHC8 batches and perhaps see if a "Lost Prophet" can give me some insight into the coming year!

    It'll be a Buffalo Trace kinda night for me. All ready lined up and ready to go are BT, ETL, Weller 12, OWA, and my New Years pour: 2007 WLW.

    Cheers, and Happy New Year to one and all!

    FWIW, on the last day of the year, and as luck would have it, I got off work a couple of hours early today. Sooooooooo, I got an early start.

    Today it was a gifted MM46 while I cleaned rugs (while the cats sat there like vultures, waiting for me to finish so they could repair their handiwork). Tonight, Abe Bowman Vanilla finish although that Seelbach sounded good, and I happen to have a split in the bar fridge. If I'm awake . . .

    Harry, you are SO spot on about the cats.

    I'm starting with Blanton's SFTB. Haven't decided on the final and first for the new year but I'm leaning towards my final pour of PVW15 from last year.

    I doubt I will make it to midnight so the new will likely wait until tomorrow. The old tonight so far has been a 2012 Lot B (old old), SB.com HHSSII, and ETLC. The latter two were two of my faves this past year, along with ECBP but I don't have an open bottle of that one right now.

    Enjoying head to head 17/94s ... closing out the JPS 17 and popping open the V 17. Nose on the JPS is good as ever, though taste seems hotter than I recall. V 17 looks darker, goes in soft but gets even hotter even quicker. (Perhaps I'm the one getting older.). Happy New Year, y'all.

    Last pour of 2014 was a glass of Woodford Reserve. Tasty! First of 2015? That remains to be seen...
