    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    The fact I prefer one style doesn't mean I dislike the other, just a preference. I don't particularly care for rum raisin ice cream either but know someone who dotes on it.

    That's funny! my MIL would pull up a chair and have a drink with you, wine of course, but still....a fun woman.

    The ex-MIL though.....or, more appropriately, the ex FIL.....would make you want to drink and then do things that would put you away for a long time...

Sampled Weller Antique 107 NAS, Weller 12, Old Rip Van Winkle, and Larceny. I tried to choose a favorite and identify each bourbon. Long story short, I realized I couldn't identify a winner because none of the four did a thing for me--all came across simple, flat and sharp in flavor. So that's it, I've thrown in the towel on wheated bourbons. Figure I'll save the bottles for mixing with Coke.


    I agree. But, there are a number of people on here that will be your enemy for saying such things and disagreeing with their 'right' way of enjoying a bourbon.

    Find what you like and drink it! Try something outside your routine regularly...but there's nothing wrong with knowing what you like and sticking to it.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    left the hospital with another classmate and we went out for a drink and dinner at one of the local bars. This place is known for large cheap pours. I asked if they had any Willett other than the potstill, and they said no. Then I asked if they had any Dickel, as I've been wanting to try the Dickel 12, and they didnt have that either. They had most anything else you could think of though. So, I just had a neat pour of Booker's, probably a 3oz pour, for $6.75. Cant beat that!

    Though Booker's is my usual favorite, tonight it was all hot and just a little sweet. I did get the last pour of the bottle though, and with the kind of place this is, I dont imagine they move much Booker's.....so Im chalking it up to an old pour.

    Next up is a standard OWA. My SB blends have really ruined the component whiskies for me. This is perfectly acceptable bourbon, but as someone mentioned above, it's simple and sharp.

    Had some of this last night, pretty decent bourbon but not my favorite Old Scout. For me it needs a splash of water to bring out the goods. The store I bought it from still had a few bottles as of last week, but I'm not sure yet if I'll pick up any more. Cask strength and 8yrs for $46 makes it attractive so I'll have to drink some more and see how things go.

    Finishing out with a Fitz BIB. Tons of HH "funk". Their house style might be the single most identifiable to me. Well, maybe second to FR. More enjoyable this evening than the OWA, but that comes and goes.

    Started out with some SB Blend and moved on to PHC 6th. The PHC is just hitting me square with the wheated profile. I swear tonight it's coming off as a barrel-proof Old Fitz and I'm loving it!
