After the two Japanese, I also had OFBB2013 and WFE 12 yo, along with more Stagg. Last night was more Stagg, a freshly popped Saz18, and then a vatting 1:1 of Stagg and Saz18 that was VERY successful. I'm just drinking the stuff and trying to figure it out later.
    I do understand the mixing-it-up part. It was more the move down from 7x.x proof to 40/50ish proof that threw me off

    Saw a Bowman Single Barrel for $45, and decided to give it a go. That's not an earth-shattering price, but the cheapest I've seen around here.

    Tried this at a tasting recently and agree, the spice does not overwhelm the whiskey and it has nice vanilla and chocolate on the finish. Others at the tasting suggested this in a holiday egg nog, and I think that is a great suggestion.

    Someone further into the thread said something about sleeping on the couch. I'm pretty much there and won't be posting in this particular thread for the forseeable future. These were all over the past three weeks, resulting in an interesting credit card balance this month. I tried like hell to explain: "This isn't even that much Bourbon! It never goes bad! You should see this guy in the board named Hectic, he brings home 40 bottles at a time!" I lost.

    Stopped in to get some wine for my wife and 2x CEHT BP came home with me along with the few bottles of wine. I like the single barrel very much and have never tried the BP. Looking forward to opening this when I get over my nasty cold.

    Congratulations BAO. You have now been ordained as an upstanding member of the "Society Of Bourbon Brethren That Bought Too Much".

    The good news is that a whole bunch of us are members. The bad news is that the dues are now required semi-annually.

    Cheers! Joe

    Stumbled upon the MC, it's one that I've been looking for. Almost as excited to try that as the OFBB!
