A bit of Weller 12 year tonight. I swear it had a strong grape soda on the nose.
larceny, while fabbing up another EFI harness. just about right for sipping while working
Going with a Weller 12 / OWA blend. I know I'm going against the grain here, but I'm gravitating towards being much heavier on the Weller 12 side. My first attempt many weeks ago was 50:50. Then I went 60:40 in favor of the OWA. At first I thought this was it like many others here. But then I kept getting a lot of cloying sweetness in it - too much OWA influence for me. This was after letting it sit and mingle for 2-3 weeks. So now I'm at an unscientific 80:20 or so in favor of Weller 12 that's had a week or more to mingle and this is tasting pretty darn good. I really really like the smoothness and age of the 12 and a little OWA amps it up and gives it a little more punch. There's more experimentation to do, but this seems like the sweet spot for me.
Had two big pours of McKenna BiB and emptied the bottle. I really enjoyed this 2/3rds of the bottle.
Felt like having some butterscotch so a couple pours of EWSB03 hit the spot.
Finished off my last Weller 12 last night. I really hope it doesn't take long to replace it. Followed that up with some Four Kings. Still not taking to that one very well. I had to wash the young grains taste out of my mouth with the last of a Bowman Bros standard bottle, which I really enjoyed.
Ree-ibs in the smoker. My butt in the swing. ETL in my glass. Life is good!
If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.
Just poured myself a very (maybe too much) generous amount of Stagg Jr after a long afternoon of job interviews.
Had a very non-eventful taste of 1792 RR, private barrel against an 8yr bottle from 2 yrs back. On the plus side, the private barrel wasn't a bad/funky barrel - but no discernible difference. I see whiskey sours in its future. Followed it up with some Stagg Jr
