    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking??

    Oh happy day, I cracked the seal on a fresh bottle of Weller 12yo. Is it wrong that this excites me as much as a new bottle of Stagg?

    Maybe only a little bit.

    The good thing about cracking open a bottle of Weller 12 yo is knowing that you can drink as much as you want - there's plenty available and it isn't expensive.

    It's also wearing your favorite comfy shirt and leaving the Armani suit in the closet.

    Just tried Ancient Ancient Age 10yo for the first time, followed by a taste of the old Beam 7yo 90-proof Black Label (no longer produced -- now it's 80 and 8) -- I liked them both. Some differences, some similarities. More wisdom later (maybe!).

    Ezra B is like comfort food. Nice and warm and friendly.
    Easy to like and very satisfying.

    Cracker Jack! (For those new to our fun group, that's Old Fitz BIB.)

    I have a confession to make. It took me a while to come to grips with this, but I have to face up to it. I am a wheater. I don't dislike bourbons with rye, but I can't stay away from the wheated bourbons for a daily pour. I just like that smooth, silky texture.

    I am drinking the OFi BIB because I finished AAA 10 yo a few days ago. I was reminded tonight that AAA 10 yo is getting rare, but that doesn't bother me as long as I have OFi BIB. Thanks, HH and Bettye Jo!

    Tonight I am having my first tastes of Hirsch 16yo. Really quite different from most bourbons I am familiar with. Lots of fruit with a little cinnamon spicyness on the finish. Very Nice. I have also recently opened a bottle of the 20yo Hirsch and enjoyed it very much as well. I haven't decided on a favorite yet. All in due time

    Bulleit : Frontier Whiskey !!........it is good but my curiousity is satisfied and when this bottle is gone, I won't replace it for a long, long time.

    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking??

    I'm a 'wheater', too, but I realized it almost right away. Like you, I have nothing against rye-flavored bourbons -- in fact, I like straight rye whiskey (Van Winkle, Wild Turkey) every bit as much as bourbon. And I've managed to deplete most of my liter of Old Fitz BIB. Funny, I don't ever really ever relish pouring it, but then (as I've mentioned here elsewhere) I couple it with a fresh, soft Tootsie Roll or Kraft caramel and wind up going back for a second pour.
