    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking - Spring 2014

    Blanton's originally didn't do it for me, but this bottle has really opened up well and it is real nice. Not sure that it is worth the extra $20 over ETL.

    Congrats Fox, job well done!

    Back on topic, 4RSmb, Barterhouse, and now finally ETL.

    Barterhouse wins tonight.

    Hoisting a healthy pour of HHSS toward Louisville tonight in honor of Doug's achievement. Congrats, man! I know what it took to get there. You should spend the rest of the week celebrating 'cause now comes the hard part!

    I continue to be impressed with Henry McKenna Single Barrel BIB.

    Me, too. I'm beginning to think that a Heaven Hill bourbon at 10 yr and 100 proof may be their sweet spot. When they're on, they are big time, ON.

    Should have mentioned that I am thoroughly enjoying a Benchmark Single Barrel on a couple of cubes, on a warm and muggy Georgia evening.

    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking - Spring 2014

    Congratulations, Fox-Doug!!! Well done!

    I finished up a project at work that was really getting to me, I've been dry for what feels like weeks except for a Jack Daniels on rocks at a cousin's wedding last weekend.

    Tonight, I started with a Manhattan mad with new WTR101, Cocchi vermouth de Turin, four Luxardo cherries, and a splash of Grade B maple syrup, juuuuust the way I like it. I do wish the new WTR101 were a little more like the old WTR101.

    While watching the Kings/Rangers game, I cracked open the WT Tradition that I bought recently, to determine if I need to get more. Tasting wasn't really working, so I'll have to try it again soon. At $120/bottle, buying more is something not to be entered into lightly.

    I finished off the last half-shot from an OWA. Bottle to the recycle bin, gotta look around for more, as all the Weller seems to be getting bought up in MA.

    Finally, some FRYL, accompanied by fresh popcorn, as we go to overtime in the game.

    Good relaxing tonight, I'll be in great shape for documentation writing tomorrow.

    VOB, BIB. No 6 year age statement. I know this forum gives Saz a lot of crap about the age statement (and they should), but I decided to go out and try it out for myself.

    To me, this is a decent standard bourbon expression. It has the classic caramel toffee elements, with a little more rye and spice than I expected. Water brings out more vanilla in the nose, and calmed down the young spiciness a bit. In any event, I think the price point ($15) is about right.
