Finishing up the last of some EH Taylor Tornado, compliments of a kind SB'er sample pack. Really enjoying the pour, but probably wouldn't go out of my way to track down a bottle (assuming I could find one on a shelf still).
AAA (10 yr). Sweet floral sourwood and a bit dry (but not too dry). The wood influence gives way to a bit of subtle spice that gently rises, lingers briefly and slowly fades away. A garden plundering bee could not be more pleased....than me.
Doing a world tour tonight. Some English ale, Redbreast 12 CS, and finishing up with an old Russell's Reserve 10yr 90 proof that I found at a ghetto store a few weeks ago.
my taster is working again!
we were at a B&B last week and an elderly couple, who were quite hammered, were sitting by the fireplace and offered me some of what they had. I had never had it before....Drambouie (however you spell that). It was like honey licorice, and I do NOT like licorice.
tonight, I can actually enjoy what Im drinking again. I havent had a cold, but my taste buds were off the last few days. so, I am enjoying my Dickel 12 and Dickel 9/103 again.
I keep thinking I better load up on the 9/103, as much as I like it, and that its not a regular find anywhere but the big stores, and even then, who knows for how long.
Lil pour from a seemingly never ending sample bottle of ORVW from '85. Yummmmmm.
ECBPs (Batch 1 & 3) Definitely feeling spoiled tonight

Some Stagg Jr, i sampled it when it came out...didn't care for the acidic shock. Having added some serious ice to my glass, it still kicks hard but was better than i remembered.
Pour of Buffalo Trace before deer spaghetti. And a pour of Weller Special Reserve after dinner. Still trying to convince myself that I need to try 4RSmb and/or 4RSB...I'm a tight wad...
Some current WT101 followed by some Henry McKenna SB - the McKenna didn't seem as full tonight - amazes me how your tastes can change from one night to the next. Two nights ago I thought this bottle of McKenna was one of the best bourbons I've ever had, tonight, ... not so much.
