    i love the fact that this guy is the bourbonian of the year, yet praises a good cheap bottle of $10 bourbon that others would cringe just at the thought of, just as often as he praises the limited releases and hard to get collectors stuff. plus, hes just as down to earth in person. drink on, joe!







    and to stay on track, im having some OGD 114, after some air time

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    Been away from SB.com for a few days...

    Saturday night: Boston Symphony Orchestra performance. In the lounge at Symphony Hall before the concert, the bartender can't get the hang of the new auto-measuring pourers they put in the bottle. Pours me over 4 oz of Knob Creek, neat, as we're talking, and says he's happy that I'm getting it. i left an extra tip for that one... Wagner's "Siegfried Idyll", Mozart's Piano Concerto #25, and Brahms' Symphony #3 were all beautifully performed. Luckily, I wasn't driving, because I was still wobbly at the end of the show...

    Monday, tough day at work, get home and wanted a glass of big-flavor bourbon after dinner. I had posted a few days ago about having a bottle of OGD 114 down in the basement. I looked through all of my boxes. Plenty of everything, but exactly NO 114. I consoled myself with OFBB 2011 and OGD BiB.

    Today, after work, I went out searching stores on my route to/from work, and there was no OGD 114 to be bought. None. I came home, and after dinner, consoled myself with OFBB2011 and OGD BiB.

    Tomorrow, more shopping. If I find any 114, I'm bringing home at least three bottles.

    Lessee...started with some CEHT SmB, followed by EWW, followed by Ritt BiB (DSP 1). I guess it's a bonded night. The "Admiral" fell asleep on the couch after a glass of cheap riesling so I'm off to find a night cap.

    Decided to crack open some bottles this week. Last night was an OBSF private pick, and tonight some WLW 2012.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    Finishing off the last couple of ounces of an EC18, River's Casino private barrel.

    Side note - I'm not a big fan of OGD 114, so naturally there's a boatload of it for $19.99 about 5 minutes from my house.
    Lead me not into temptation - I can find the way myself

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking - Fall 2013

    I'm about to kill a 200ml of ND OT. I recommend this as very good way to drink $2.50. Mmmm...makes me feel a little better that I have yet to find any ND OGD in the wild.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Had a little tasting after curling practice last night, everyone brought a bottle. Lexington, Noah's Mill, some Canadian I can't recall, AE, WR 4W. Passed on a couple that I own already - they were small samples, but I still had to drive home.

    I'll get on a kick and really hit it hard for a few weeks, but then I'll forget about it for a while. It's a nice anchor to keep at the bottom of a barrel proof ladder.

    I went back to the OBSF again after the WLW. Sean says it's a "julep in a glass" and that's probably not all that far off. Although I haven't enjoyed the prepared juleps I've had (too sweet) this had all the flavors present with just a hint of sweetness.

    I put 3 drops of water in the WLW and it settled in. That's a hot rod of a wheater. Last night I was getting vanilla and white pepper.
