    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    celebrated an anniversary with my wife last night at one of our favorite upscale places. I ordered a flight of bourbons.....my favorite, Bookers, plus two ive wanted to try - Ezra B 12 year, and Noah's Mill.

    Tell me what you guys think of my interpretation here: I thought the Noahs and Ezra tasted like different proofs of the same exact whiskey. Then, realizing they are both sourced whiskeys, I figured they likely came from the same distillery originally. And since it is generally assumed Ezra is sourced from HH, maybe KBD got this Noahs from HH too. Any ideas?

    I have to say, i didnt really like either. The aftertaste wasnt pleasant. Then I went for the Bookers and realized why I like it so much. Sweet, hot, balanced well without too much woodiness, not tannic, and no lingering aftertaste that makes me want to reach for the glass of water....just drink it and enjoy.

    Im interested to see what you guys think on the noahs/ezra idea. I could be way off, but its what I came to last night.

    Although I've not had Noahs, I have had quite a few of the EBSB 12yrs. The ones I've had range from very good to exceptional. It is generally accepted that the EB is HH.

    From some of the posts I've seen of yours, you have strong opinions of what you like and don't like. It seems you loves you some Beam products, nothing wrong with only drinking what you know you like.

    Starting off the day with some FR 100th Anniversary (17yr OBSV). Got my eye on some other very nice pours for later today...

    Last night I cracked a PHC Golden 100 proof. It was as good if not better than what I have read. I will be savoring this bottle.

    Noah's Mill tasted like an HH product to me though I've never compared the two side by side.

    My choice is Barton but other than that I'm in complete agreement.

    I got a wild hair and for some reason made a Mint Julep with some OWA. Never actually had one other than derby day. Still tasty in October :-)

    Liquor Barn selection FRSB, bottled June 2013. Right now it's about in the middle of all the store selection FRSB I've had...which means it's pretty tasty.
