    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? - Winter '13/'14

    Starting with some Col EH Taylor SmB and this is very tasty. My cold must be waning because I can actually taste some flavors.

    Happy New Year!

    getting into the bottle of Booker's my MIL gave me for X-mas. Still in my top 3 of bourbons. If only the aftertaste were as good as the taste when you first take a sip, it'd be #1. Love that sweet, full-bodied mouthfeel!

    It just amazes me that this is basically barrel proof, unfiltered Jim Beam at 7 years.




    then had some KCSB. there is strong family resemblance here, but each is better at something than the other. I prefer the initial 'hot' of the Booker's; it hits the instant it hits your mouth - you get sweet and hot right away. With the KCSB, it is smoother at first then the heat comes on in a few seconds.....the overall taste profile is a draw, they are quite close........for a finish, the KCSB lasts longer, whereas the Booker's fades sooner, its only drawback.

    since they are both single barrels though, it may differ from one bottle to the next. I may just do a 50/50 mix and see if I can get the entry of Bookers with the finish of KCSB.

    I haven't seen HHSS before. I am assuming this is Heaven Hill Select Stock. Is this a private bottling or something from the gift shop? It seems to be discussed more recently.
