    Still my favorite bourbon: George T Stagg 2013 to ring in 2014.

    Started with Stagg Jr. since it had been a while. Overall, I'm a fan. With a little bit of water, it really opens up in my opinion. Finished with PVW 15, ER 17, and GTS '13. I would say it was good way to start off the new year!

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

    A good variety tonight. My son back from college for a couple of days and I introduced him to sipping whiskey as opposed to shots with chasers.

    Started with small pours of a highland scotch and then an Islay, followed by some SB blend and Eagle Rare to get a wheater and a rye. After that I made us a nice pour of Wild Turkey American Spirit, which was probably produced from grain grown the year he was born, pretty cool, and a very nice whiskey. A little rare breed and Kentucky spirit closed out the night.

    Was planning on opening up something new to celebrate the new year but I started with the rest of my home-made egg nog and then had a large pour of WT 101.

    After that, it was 'whatever is open', so Makers Mark, Makers 46 and I'm getting ready to pour EC12 before I hit the sack.

    Happy New Year, all!!!

    Started the new year with some loch and K(e)y OESO...sweet and fruity...really nice pick.
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    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.
    Although I hope it doesn't affect your enjoyment of a great pour, I feel obligated to point out that Booker's is not a single barrel.

    Late, late at night/early, early in the morning, I'm sipping my first pour of the new year, Wild Turkey Tribute.

    Just amazing bourbon. Some of the best I have had. Hopefully I'll get my hands on some Tradition and American Spirit sometime, but even more, hopefully Campari wises up and realizes that Jimmy and Eddie can produce one of the best whiskeys in the world.

    Happy 2014, StraightBourbon! Glad to know all of you.

    Squire, you are nothing if not reliable.

    Tonight, I was admittedly letting guests go nuts on my Van Winkles while I had ND OGD. I like my friends, so it was a pleasure to watch.

    And as they do occasionally drink whiskey neat, they got a lesson on mashbills and it seemed to take. So why not.
