    I finished off a bottle of WT 8y from 1992. Very good bourbon

    Well I'm certainly not getting Anise. Nose isn't half bad, but there is a bit of a "soapy" quality pushing the rye out of the way. Not in love with the finish either. For the record, mine has barrel #3 listed on the label. I'll revisit after it gets some air, maybe it will improve for my tastes. Certainly doesn't live up to the mash bill.

    First pour hasn't been great. Heading back through KY this weekend on the way to the Indy 500. Won't be bringing another one of these home. Might grab someone's Old Scout 10 selections if I can find one. McScrooges had a few a few weeks back.

    At least you aren't getting lots of anise on the nose!

    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking - Spring 2014

    Did a blind tasting of 4 JB offerings with a buddy who is a JBW drinker. We tasted:
    JBW
    JBB
    JBSB
    JB12

    we were both able to pick JBW correctly but after that all bets were off. Interestingly to me I end up ranking JJB as my fav. Here was my final order from fav to least:
    JBB
    JBSB
    JBW
    JB12

    We had a good time and learned a bit as well, I always knew I liked JBB just didn't know I liked it this much.

    I know it's not big anise, but you didn't even get a hint of anise????
