    Yes, the HHSS was my second pour last night after the 4R OBSO. Two ridiculously good bourbons.

    Perhaps I need to try the antique...

    Four Roses for V-Day of course. A local single barrel selection for me and a YL highball for my wide.

    While it certainly helps to like wheated bourbon to enjoy the W12, I would say a large part of the love on SB is due to 1) the sheer quality to price ratio(one of the best in whiskeydom in my opinion) and 2) its value as a component of the SB blend.

    For me, part 2 is 95% of it. I'll admit - I probably enjoy 1 oz neat from each bottle, and the rest via the SB Blend. Although it is almost the same with OWA. Not that either are lacking on their own, but just so freaking amazing combined!

    + 1 what daryl said. The blend, the blend, the blend.

    I'm enjoying a little WLW 134.8 while watching Americans take on the Russians. As a Red Wings fan I didn't know if I should cheer or be upset when Datysuk scored.

    I am the same way. When I open a bottle of each, I'll go straight into blending different variances of the portions, and the leftover of each will be a little pour of each that I drink individually. I just enjoy the blends so much more. I can nose the W12 all night tho
