    I want to be like Joe when I grow up.

    Sipping on some 4RSB and I really like it. I'm not a huge fan of straight rye (so far), but I really like high rye bourbons. Hell, I like wheaters a lot, too.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    Nice work. No doubt that was his whole allocation. Cleaned em out! I'm trying to run through my first bottle ASAP. Just to piss off the bourbon gods.

    Found one bottle of Handy at one store and another bottle of Handy and one of their other locations. After getting home I say the proofs were different. Seems I got a 2013 and a 2011? This is no the type of place were the 11 would be sitting around for 2 years. Has anyone else had ths happen?

    I have found older BTAC releases but not in the sense that they are an older bottle, somehow held for a few years, and put out the same time as another years release.


    Side note, I much preferred the 11' Handy release to the 12' and have not acquired a 13' yet.

    I dont have the greatest memory on specific tasting notes, but I remember the 11' gave me a much warmer mouth feeling, smoother, and more flavorful, compared to the 12'. I would drink the 11' neat but add a few cubes to the 12'.

    Re: What Bourbon Did You Purchase Today? Fall 2013

    I picked up my first ever bottle of Elijah Craig 12YO/94.

    Charming. Moreish. Weighty, perhaps even oily. One of those where it's very dry your first taste of it, and then it blooms into a gentle low-key sweetness. Not a bourbon I'd partake of every day with its $33 price tag, but definitely one I like well enough to keep around. Hard to describe the aftertaste but I enjoy it.

    The label has a blurb on it about a special yeast recipe that's been a family secret for generations, which makes me wonder if HH sent samples of their liquid yeast to a yeast house to have it perpetuated specifically for them in dried form. I figured that if they were using dried yeast they simply bought something available to the wholesale trade, but perhaps they contract to have Earl Beam's historic strain provided for them in dried fashion.

    one of my all time favorites right there. It's priced a little better out here I guess, always in the mid 20's. I've had standard offering and several privately selected barrels and I've never been disappointed. solid.
