    well it just so happens I am sippin a pour of my WT 101 and lovin it, but I am still a baby robin when it comes to bourbon so cant comment to much. I do think my next trip to the liqour store will be for another WT bourbon.

    You might be a newbie, but you did pick a good bourbon I started the evening with Pizza and a black and tan. I have since moved on to WT 101 as well. A staple of any self-respecting liquor cabinet, WT101 provides all the flavor and puch one could want in a bourbon. There is a lot in store for you when you discover WT bourbons. Enjoy the trip

    I am enjoying a nice glass of 4 Roses Yellow Label that Mark & I acquired from the Lets Talk Bourbon at this year's festival. It is taking the edge off a hard day at work and helping me unwind for the evening!

    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking??

    Not actually drinking right now (had a Saz 18 last night, though, and it was very fine). My favs thus far are Blanton's, WT 12, ER 10 and ORVW 15 (107 proof). Others I like are OCPR 13, VSOF 12, and OGD 114. I've got Hirsch 16 and 20 and Pappy 20 in the bunker, along with ER 17. And I'm still on the Stagg hunt, but, like another poster said, maybe I'm just not worthy of The Stagg.
    Rye-wise, I like VWFR 13 and OROTR 12, along with the Saz 18. Very different ryes and all excellent. In fact, I like all the other ryes I've tried (Beam, Old Overholt, Pikesville Supreme) except for Old Potrero, which seems to rapidly become undrinkable after the bottle is open for a few days.
    The only bourbon I dislike, thus far, is Maker's Mark: I find it harsh tasting, even downright bitter (I know, weird), and adding ice and a splash doesn't help much. Funny, because I REALLY wanted to like it and it was the first bottle I bought when I wanted to get more serious about fine whiskey. Fine company, good web site, etc., but I just don't like the standard red wax product. Ah well, different strokes ...

    I'll bite. Er, sip...

    Tonite it is Woodford. Chosen to match a Partagas Humitube,
    that's been waiting a while. The Partagas is light-medium bodied
    cigar with some light spicy notes from the camaroon wrapper.

    It's pretty easy for a Bourbon to overwealm a mild
    cigar, so the Woodford/Partagas seems a good match.

    A first whiff of apples, then citrus, and pretty light,
    not much tannin at all (ie, not Knob Creek). Doesn't seem
    to want water added to this one...IMHO.

    And all the cares of the day drift away in puffs and sips.

    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking??

    With a list like yours, you are definitely worthy of Stagg! If you can appreciate the bourbons you already have, Stagg will fit nicely along side them.

    Actually, everyone is worthy of Stagg, it's just that many might be overwhelmed by it if they hadn't experienced alot of bourbons, including some higher proof ones. Case in point - I was at a work dinner on Wednesday night. One coworker was intrigued with my bourbon drinking, so I ordered him a Makers Mark neat. He enjoyed it, but when he tasted my WT 101 neat, it was too intense for him.

    Not bourbon tonight, but Wild Turkey rye, in remembrance (for wont of a better word) of my first rye, the Van Winkle 13yo, which I finished bit-by-bit over the past month or so. I like it, so far. In fact, I'm starting to wonder if I don't like the couple of ryes I've had better than most of the bourbons. Strange, really, since my preference among the bourbons seems to run toward the wheated ones. Ain't no wheat in straight rye whiskey. Go figure!

    My local store had Jim Beam’s small batch bourbons set out, so I figured why not….I am sipping from all four. I am sipping them straight, which at what…126 and 107 proof for Bookers and Bakers kind of knock your socks off. But, Basil’s pales in comparison. This tasting is so hard to do -- such a hardship.
