It has a really nice old school barnyard must, butterscotch and cherry bourbon flavor. Really starting to love it.
    Probably mostly on SB, but I've really been hearing great things about the EHT SmB lately. It's about $36 by me, so not cheap per se, but not terribly expensive for what sounds like a really nice bourbon. It kind of flies under the radar compared to its bigger brothers in the EHT line, and the bigger names in the BT family. Haven't pulled the trigger yet, but I'm sure I will soon.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    Last evening started with a Mellow Corn eggnog, then OFFBB13 (this bottle is just sooo good), and finished the evening with OGD114. The later went great with the rib eye and baked potatoe off of the grill. This morning having the MC with coffee, yum!

    Dissenting opinion: the store-picked Buffalo Trace bottle I have is much tastier than the EHT side-by-side (proofed to be equal) and it tasted like harsh firewater compared to some other things we had open the other night, including 4R Small Batch and OFBB13.

    Good to know Suntour. I have a couple of different BT single barrel selects at home, and they are very nice. Also have plenty of ETL, and a couple bottles of Stagg Jr. So I'll think a bit more before I pick up the EHT.

    Edit: ...also were you impressed or disappointed with any in particular?
    Top 5 in a loose order of rank:

    PHC 6th - I love the vanilla bean and caramel in this, thick mouthfeel, easiest barrel proof to drink neat
    PVW15 - Great pour all around, though one thing PVW15 does better than anything else is the smell of the empty glass.
    ECBP - Has it all, such a complete pour
    Michter's 20 - Deceivingly good, almost creamy
    FRLESB SmB 2013 - Did not enjoy the finish on this as much as I wanted, but it's a recently opened bottle and I expect it to tame down and lose the astringency.

    Honorable mention

    SB blend - Stands up well to the big hitters
    Glenmorangie Ealanta - Doesn't wow, but is a great "crossover whisky" between bourbon and scotch
    WLW - Always yum

    Disappointment

    Old Medley 12 (forgot to list that one) - Thin, boring and hot
    Noah's Mill - Underdeveloped flavors for supposedly a close-to-15 year
    Elijah Craig 21 - A good pour, but for the price and my love of EC I wanted this to be better

    Having some current WTRB with a big cube. Even after all the old WT I've had recently, this stuff is still very good

    Thanks for the note.

    Was the Michter's 20 from this year or previous?

    GBS-EC15 as my first pour tonight. Perfect tonic for a rainy awful day in ATL.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    Last night for a friend's 40th bday: Dickel 9/103; old WSR 7; intermission of Chimays Blue & Red, then Maredsous 8 & 10; ORVW 10/107 (sharing mine w/ my friend, as he'd never had it); Corazon ORVW (overpriced? sure; but tasty? very).

    Tonight: nothing; recovery.
