Got my first taste of Stagg Junior the other night, wow does that have some giddyup to it! Makes me afraid to open the bottle of George Stagg sitting in my bunker. Only kidding, but neat with a glass of ice water back on a chilly night the Stagg JR hit the spot. I think it is a one and done drink, no need for another glass prior to dinner and no driving was involved.
Other than that with the traditional start of brown liquor season commencing after Columbus Day here in the northeast, the usual suspects were had over the recent weekends: Weller 12, OWA, Woodford & Larceny. I am looking to finish off the Woodford & replace it with a bottle of Angel's Envy. Those flatter style bottles fit in nicely along the side of the cabinet, allowing for a wider selection.
went back to the $10 bourbon/burger/fries place with my wife for lunch, and was gonna get that again, but she wanted the Truman Special (eggs, bacon, toast, bourbon, and milk) but didnt want the bourbon, so i got hers. it was supposed to be OGD BIB, but they were out, so I got Fighting Cock substituted instead. 10 times the bourbon OWA was last week, at least to me. I need to pick up another one of those next time im out, havent had it in a while. it's 'hot' but i seem to like that.
I really like FC, probably my favorite $15 bourbon. Going to have some EW BIB tonight sharing the last of my bottle with friends at our weekly cigar/bourbon get together.
Last night was 4RSB. I will admit this bottle hasn't really captivated me but for some reason last night it was exactly the right pour.
Having a generous pour of 4RSB BS OBSQ. Nice floral note with a strong, lingering, rye forward finish.
