    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking??

    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.

    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking??

    This afternoon while doing some work on the computer I am sipping on a virginia gentleman 90 aka the Fox. It is a very good bourbon especially for the afternoons as it is a light bourbon. It has a smooth vanilla taste with an easy finish and a kind of viscous mouth to it that I find very satisfying. No great jolts here,no sense of ethonal,just a smooth and flavorful mouthful of enjoyment

    Tonight it's Woodford Reserve. I know, I know...with all the commotion surrounding the idiotic lawsuit I should be boycotting the stuff, but it was only $19.99 on sale. Actually, this particular bottle seems infinitely less impressive than I remember. In fact, I can hardly distinguish it from its sibling Old Forester 86. Maybe the lawsuit thing is swaying my taste buds!

    Tonight, it is WT Rare Breed, straight. While participating in the SB.com chat room all by myself. The RB is very spicy, tonight. And wonderfully thick, rich.

    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking??

    This is a late post.
    Friday afternoon went to The Throroughbred shop to meet Tom Bulleit and taste his bourbon. Had a great conversation with proprietor Sal Marino and Tom. Jeff and Leslie were there as well. After that, off to UK basketball, followed by relaxing cocktails in front of the fireplace at Nicholson's Cigar bar. WT 12 on the rocks and a Macanudo Hampton Court Maduro. Nice combo. Smooth bourbon, mild cigar. Topped off the evening with a Jefferson Reserve straight. This is why I live in the Blue Grass. Bourbon, Basketball, Bourbon and friends.

    Leslie and I had a great time as well. Ed and Patty are wonderful people and fun to hang out with. Tom Bulleit was a very nice and interesting man to talk to. Got a signed bottle and a shot glass and headed to the game. Just a couple minutes into the second half Ed finds us and says he has better seats. Wow did he . Center court Row A seats 1-4. That'll never happen again. At Nicholson's we relaxed and had a Macanudo, courtesy of Ed. I paired it with an EC18 and a Kentucky Spirit. Lovely evening and hope to do it again.

    Extra Tickets.
    I'll keep my eye out. I heard there were some in 1992.

    I do occasionally get an offer of extra tickets and I'll let you know.
