    Started out with some HH 6 Year BIB, really didn't hit the spot. Was a little hot tonight. I will search out something smoother.
    it's about 38 down here tonight. And crystal clear skies, the stars are shining bright. I've moved on to some Michter's 10.

    It is damn cold in the Hoosier state this evening. Some ECBP is warming me up nicely. :-)

    I just might crack open this Wild Turkey American Spirit. I plan on going through a flight of PVW with a few family members that have wanted to try them tomorrow.

    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Do it! This way you can tell me if I need to go grab one of the many still sitting on the shelf!

    Just make sure you have them far enough apart that the WTAS doesn't show up the Pappy too bad and you hurt a lot of people's feelings in the process.

    Good advice. The tasters have open minds and no preconceptions that I know of. I expect one or two of my kin will prefer the WTAS due to their preference for ryed bourbon.

    Will do. I suspect that I will suggest you get at least one to try if you like Turkey. Did you like that dusty Rare Breed?

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    Getting ready to have 30+ people over for Thanksgiving. Had to open my Blantons barrel select, really smooth straight! Now I'm working on my Stagg Jr, been open for a month and it keeps getting better.
