    That's the sort of urban renewal I fully support.

    OK .. and, thanks I guess. (Not sure why you appreciate it.)

    Admittingly the 80 proof is the lowest proof of my open bottles (abut 15) .. and .. it's not the best.

    As with most bourbons .. time will tell. From what I'm tasting .. I'm willing to wait a bit longer before trashing it verbally. The bottle will be trashed shortly! Cheers!

    Congratulations to the GBS for sweeping their own awards!!! I'm sure I'm not the only one who knew you guys had it in ya to do so. Can't wait to see Jimmy wearing all those gold medals to various KBF events next month, looking like Michael Phelps (or maybe for guys our age, Mark Spitz is more appropriate?)

    The competition was daunting, but you can't beat the discounted entry fee! We feel pretty good about our chances in 2014, as well...
    And, Jimmy has already started his Spitz 'stache for the occasion...But, I am desperately trying to talk him out of donning the Stars n Stripes Speedo at the GN pool...

    The sample I had displayed a distinctly grainy flavor that I would attribute to a high barley mashbill. I likened it to a multigrain bread. It wasn't bad but not something I would buy.

    Re: Town Branch wins SIP awards

    Apologies if I've offended. Forty yrs of drinking 8o proofs on the dark side and my affinity for heavy spiced Chinese,Mexican & Cajun foods has soo dulled my taste buds that I need a min of 90 proof to enjoy anything.

    Did you know it's the exact same nerves in your mouth that make you like spicy foods that make you like high proof alcohol?
