    Killin' it!

    I continued with opening a new bottle each day. Today is a Willett Straight Rye 4 year, 120.8 proof. It really reminds me of the AE rye turned down a good bit.

    Michael, notice much change in the Saz year over year or is the tank keeping a level profile?

    It seems less spicy this year and oddly a bit younger? But I don't really have a huge memory of many earlier Saz. Still a really delicious pour and I will be buying all I can find

    We (about 20 people) did a side by side of the first release (2000?) and 2012 Saz 18 at the last Houston get together and the consensus was that they tasted the same.

    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    It is all supposed to be the same stuff so differences are most likely palate related vs actual degradation of the whiskey or mixing in Buffalo Trace distillate.

    That doesn't surprise me, I haven't tasted every year's expression but did try enough of the different years to find them consistent.

    Very interesting. I would have expected differences from 02 to 06 or whenever they tanked and then a basically level profile (+/- from oxidation) thereafter.

    I don't have a lot of experience with Saz 18 myself, but most of the SB "old timers" seemed surprised that there was little to no difference.

    Fat pour of '09 Handy in front of the outdoor fireplace. Oh my, this is great whiskey. Of course for me, every year of THH has been great. So, I look forward to opening and loving on, the '13 iteration.
