    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    Had my wife pour blind samples of WLW 2012 and 2013. I think of the 12 fondly and have additional stock, so I wanted to see if that bunker was warranted or if I should try to find more 2013. My first reaction was that everything about each pour was so similar. The noses were hard to distinguish. The first sample had more wood tannin and bitterness, and slightly more burnt sugar and leather. The second was a little sweeter and creamier. These were very difficult to distinguish. I thought a few times that my wife had double poured one of the bottles.

    Adding water with a dropper in equal amounts separated the pack. The first fell apart quickly with tremendous bitterness up front. This subsided over 10-15 minutes but it never came back together. The second had the aroma really come to life with some more vanilla and brown sugar, and a better mouthfeel, but I didn't notice a shift in the flavor. I enjoyed both, but definitely preferred the second neat and with water. I concluded that the first was 2013 and my wife confirmed.

    Neat there was almost no substantive difference, but this session resulted in a clean overall win for the 2012.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    Tried starting with a pour of Jefferson's very old very small batch that I got at costco, but it was so thin and all I could taste was corn and yeast I had to pour it out. Now I have to figure out if I'm going to vat it or just take it to Thanksgiving for friends to pour with soda.

    Instead I'm having a healthy pour of GTS'11. Everything the earlier pour wasn't. Rich, deep, tannic, oily, burny, pow.

    Back to some 2012 FRSmBLE after a terrible Packer's loss.
