    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    Did a side by side blind tasting of Weller 12, OWA, and a 50/50 SB blend of the two. Good clean fun! Ended up a three way tie. I made some notes in the tasting section if anyone is curious.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    Horrible Thanksgiving with my wife's incredibly boring extended family and I couldn't drink because it's an hour drive on the highway in crappy weather. I came home and poured myself a solid three-ounces of 2011 THH and I'm following it up now with a bottle-killing, four-ounce pour of Blanton's Straight from the Barrel. High-rye, barrel-proof bourbon take me away!

    What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    While not Turkey, I kept it in the Avian family and had a big pour (for me) after everything was cleaned up and put away.

    Eagle Rare 10 / 101 - New Orleans



    Happy Thanksgiving Y'all!!!

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    Home from my Aunt's house and having a WLW now, but earlier at her house when I mentioned I liked whiskey, she says "oh we have some 50 yr old whiskey you can have." What? Turned out it only 42 years old (or 48 depending on how you look at it). My Uncle had bought some 6yo Seagrams in 1971 and apparently didn't like it very much. Been in their liquor cabinet ever since. Delicious stuff!

    A bottle of WTKS pewter top with the in-laws. My smoked turkey was a killer, one of the best I have done.

    Came home and drank a WLW 12 now moving to GTS12.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    Been staying with the BIL in the Madison WI area, and brought along a EC18 to share.

    After the first two sips, I was a bit disappointed as it didn't quite taste like I remembered, but then another taste memory kicked in, and with the third sip, it hit home. I had had this before, just it wasn't in a EC bottle, or another Heaven Hill bottle either.

    It's a dead ringer for the Binnys Willett 21yr #3635 that was put out in 2012. That was a good bottle!

    This EC was barreled in 91, which would put it in the same age range as the Willett when it came out. That and the Willett barrel number is pretty close to the barrel number of the EC. With the age, barrel and similar taste, I wonder if they came from the same batch?

    Been a good two nights of drinking with this. And as a bonus to the BIL for his hosting and hospitality, he is getting the rest oft eh bottle gifted, as he also made several comments about how good this was and that it was the first bourbon that he has been able to drink straight.

    i think I have another converter in the makings.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    Since it was Turkey Day and all, I busted open a bottle of Rare Breed yesterday. Been sitting in my cabinet for awhile, it's the first time I've tried it. Have generally not been overwhelmed by the WT family products I've tried, but really liked the RB. For some reason it had almost a hint of a chocolately taste to me, although that certainly wasn't the predominate flavor.
