    I haven't seen it in the Indy area for several months. Hopefully, a new release will come out soon. The question is where it will be priced.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    Tonight, ETL, a selection from the San Francisco Wine Trading Company that I picked up back in August.

    This past Monday night I went to a tasting with local bourbon geeks. We opened a bottle of pre-pro bourbon - distilled in 1917, bottled in 1932. Very unique. No heat. Fantastic nose. A real treat.

    I had some 1991 Old Fitz. My favorite of the night. I love the SW wheaters. Butterscotch, creamy, smooth - delicious.

    I tasted 2013 GTS. The lower proof this year works. It's drinkable at barrel proof. Great stuff. I have 2 bottles waiting for me elsewhere - I can't wait to pick them up.

    I tasted 2013 FR LE SmB. I wasn't blown away. I am not saying it is not worth the accolades it is getting, but I will have to come back to this one. Normally when I have this initial reaction, I have spend some time with the bourbon and get to know it. I have a bottle I will be picking up this weekend.

    Forgot to say I also tasted the latest ECBP (132). I gave it a quick taste - needed to watch my intake so I could drive home. My initial impressions were it was similar to the second release (137). I'll have time to taste this one as well - bought some today and will pick it up tomorrow.

    Poured a 4 finger W12 while watching the CMA's. I'm about to give up on this CMA deal though, because country music sure ain't what it used to be!

    An '04 ER 17. As silky and luxurious as ever. I get why this is always my least preferred on the yearly BTAC rating scale, but at the same time, I don't get why it's my least preferred ... It's a superb whiskey, IMO.

    Maybe cause its up against a barrel proof wheater and a barrel proof ryed bourbon
