    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    Picked up a bottle of WTRB for the Thanksgiving Holiday, and it's just giving me fits. Or probably more accurately put, my palate just can't draw a bead on this whiskey. Each time I pour it, it's "Bad", it's "Good", it's "Wretched", it's "meh", and tonight...it's "Fabulous". Really nice char filled, leathery, big WT flavor. Tomorrow??? Who the heck knows.

    Ive only had the WT101 and the WTRB, but both were just 'good' to me. Not great, not bad, just good. Not something I've bought again, though.

    I cant wait to see what the fat guy brings me for xmas!

    You might be surprised at Mellow Corn. You seem to like the Heaven Hill house flavor. I love Mellow Corn myself. I'd always have it on hand if I could get it without driving 80 miles roundtrip.

    What an occasion and tribute to your friend to open such a grand bottle. You are truly a great friend. Good luck to your friend.

    Having a good pour of OFBB13 again tonight. I am truly enjoying this bottle. This has been all I want to sip on the past few days.

    Regular four roses single. It's like a cherry cordial. If you don't have one open, go get one. It's delightful!

    A pour of J W Dant, then for contrast a pour of Charter 101. finished up with a couple of sips of Old Ezra 101. Think i preferred the Old Charter but not by much. Haven't really been able to fall in love with the Old Ezra, so the Dant gets a close second.

    I've had the same problem with WT corks in the past. I think the key to preserving the cork is momentarily forgetting about WT corks while you're opening it and then breathing a huge sigh of relief once you have it 99/100 of the way out and remember that it could have gone much worse.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    At the curling club last night, and as the night wore on the various whiskey drinkers began to congregate at our table, some bringing bottles of their own. I didn't have any of the Jameson that got polished off, but OF, VOB, ER and OWA were also consumed. All generally well received by those who were unfamiliar with some of the choices.
