    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    I have been slowly converting a dear friend of my wife from a scotch drinker to a bourbon/rye drinker. Tonight may have been the happiest yet saddest day of that journey. Her father passed away late last night so we had them over for dinner. I cracked a 10/107 ORVW and we toasted her father. Then I poured us all some 2013 FR LE SmB. I asked her which one she like better and with no hesitation she said FR! She then gushed that the FR 125th is the best whiskey to ever cross her lips. Anyway I thought it was nice to see someone not get wrapped up in Pappymania. Like I said, a happy but sad moment.

    What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    Opened the Kirkland Small Batch I picked up at Costco. Tried a small pour in a rocks glass while making an Old Fashioned. As others have stated, very similar to the standard knob creek offering.

    Mouth feel was a little thin, could use a little more rye spice through the middle, but I find the wood component nice.

    Stating all that, it made an outstanding old fashioned. The wood comes through nicely in the cocktail. Very happy I revisited this one. For 20 bucks a liter, in my opinion, this is a nice one to have on the shelf. If you poured this in a decanter, most wouldn't even think it was a costco private label.

    If you're a holiday entertainer, this is a great option for your guests who might not know any better.

    Agreeing here, with your take on this, Mark. A solid whiskey. It's a tough one to beat at $20/L for sure.

    Having some FRSmB LE 2013 tonight. Hard to imagine a better bourbon, although sometimes I do prefer the 2012 FRSmB LE.

    Started with a 2:1 blend of WT101 Rye/WT101. Spicy hot and very good! Now enjoying a pour of OC10.

    Enjoying a pour of GBS selection ETL with a Samuel Smiths nut brown ale back.

    Was a busy weekend between on-call work and crap around the house so the down time is welcome.
