    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking - Spring 2014

    Doing another side-by-side comparisonk of RB 108 (old label) versus 112 (new label). When I first tried these two, the 112 was the clear winner. I still favor that one, but the 108 was closer tonight. Could be in the original comparison the 112 had been open for 2 weeks whereas the the 108 had just been cracked.

    Fitz BIB. Used to enjoy it as a bar pour, but not enjoying this bottle much. I lately tend to use it as a primer, and dont plan to buy any more of it. Larceny is better, IMO

    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking - Spring 2014

    A bit of a tasting tonight just for the heck of it. Started with SAOS 7 yr bourbon 99 proof, followed with Old Blowhard, and now WT101. The SAOS is fantastic - caramels, toffee, vanilla. The Old Blowhard is.......interesting. Got that glue smell for a bit but it eventually wore off. Oak is present but fades away after a while. I agree with others that it tastes a little thin and could use another 7 to 10 proof points. It's tasty but not my favorite. Certainly not worth the price compared to the others here.

    Did a little SBS of SAOS 7 Yr and SAOS 10 Yr tonight. Both excellent, but I think I preferred the 7 Yr. Slightly better flavor to me, and a little less oaky than the 10 Yr. In today's climate, IMO, I'd say the 10 Yr is a very good bourbon and good value at around $50, while the 7 Yr is an excellent bourbon and excellent value at around $30. Good work SA.

    Trying Bowman Gingerbread beer finish for the first time. Really enjoying it, with a lot of ginger on the finish.

    It's a Four Roses kind of night. Started off with some PS OBSV and then followed up with the 2012 SmBLE. Now onto the 125th before bed.

    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking - Spring 2014

    Old Charter 12yr and Old Forester signature.

    Very bold (in a great way) and stimulating nose on the OC12. Taste is nicely balanced - I'm liking these Charters a lot. This afternoon I tried a Louisville 8yr Charter and enjoyed it as well, but this 12 is definitely a bolder beast (10 more proof is part of that).

    The Old Forester Signature - First time I've tried this. VERY smooth for a 100 proofer. Quiet nose and refreshing on the palate. Light body with a very peppery zing. Probably good in a cocktail that wants spice, but not much more sweetness, ie mixing with something that is already sweet on its own.
