Not sipping yet, but when the 5 o'clock whistle blows, I am going to make myself a ginger old fashioned with some Old Crow Reserve. I made a ginger simple syrup the other day with some fresh ginger and will substitute it for the normal simple syrup/sugar cube in the typical recipes.
I believe the 80 proof is 3 years old and the 90 proof is six.

OGD 114 on the rocks last night to watch the Bruins/Habs hockey game. I should have kept the TV off and doubled the pour. Montreal was 100% on their game, and Boston was 90% unfocused and 10% bizarro goalie swap.
ORVW 10/107 new tall bottle.

Some EWSB 04. It's grown on me and settled into a very nice caramel sweetness. Not seeing the more robust profile, actually think the 03 is better in that regard, but its a nice pleasant sipper at a good price.
Wild Turkey 101 Proof Rye - the current, 1 liter release. Quite tasty. Great value. Yeah, I know it's not a bourbon. But it is what I'm drinking.
