    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    ECBP 133.2, fall release. Burned the roof of my mouth on chili at dinner. Let's see how much this will burn. At least, it will disinfect my mouth. ;-)

    Also, I was looking for discussion of this 3rd release. I searched for "133.2", then "66.6", but didn't get any hits. Too many hits, of course, on ECBP. ;-)

    This third batch just hit in NJ, and I picked one up. I'm still working on my first bottle of the first batch, so I probably won't be opening this one up for a bit. I think the second batch bypassed this area, as I never saw it.

    Drinking some ETL Barrel Select and SB blend tonight. Both always terrific.

    All I can say is ouch. Making it hard to concentrate on the flavor.

    Not drinking it barrel strength. Added almost 0.5 oz water to 1.5 oz ECBP. Even watered down like this, the full flavor comes through.

    I have all three releases open now. Next week, I will set them up side by side for a taste.

    Have you thought opening your bottle of the third release? It will slow your consumption of the excellent first release. Gotta make that one last.

    Sounds really good. I need to try both options.

    I have half a bottle left of my first bottle of batch one, and another in the bunker, so I'm good for the time being... And you're a brave man for giving ECBP a go with a burned mouth. I tried that the other night, and the ECBP killed me.

    Not brave, just too impatient to try the new bottle I picked up today. ;-)

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    The lineup: 2013 Lot B, 2012 Lot B, older SW Lot B, Recent W12, Everett's W12, Weller Centennial, Frankfort.


    The results w 3 SBers tasting:
    1) SW Lot B
    2) Weller Centennial
    3) Everett's
    4) 2012 Lot B
    5) W12
    6) 2013 Lot B


    caveat: not a blind tasting but done side by side by side. And 1 and 2 were a dead heat. The current Lot B was the clear loser of the bunch. Perhaps should be posted in the" Pappy Hunt is it worth it" thread.
