    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking??

    Congratulations! Good luck in the coming months. Take it from a semi-old fart - enjoy your kid(s) as much as you can while they are young.

    I am enjoying my 10 yo son alot now. I am still a cool guy to him (he wants to go to my college and work for my company!), but it won't be too much longer before he'll grow up and start gaining his independence. I am going miss these days.

    Old Rip Van Winkle 10 year 90 proof, for the third time this week. I can't wait to try the higher proof versions!

    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking??

    Tonight it's Hancock's President's Reserve Single Barrel. I am really enjoying this bourbon and wish more people would talk about it, it is deserving of more mention. My only wish would have been to get another bottle or 2 while in KY. It was about $15 less there than here in NY! While I like it, I will not spend the $50 price tag it carries in the city...

    Next time I trek to Covington, I will buy a bottle and give it the special treatmen it deserves. It just seems to get lost in the shuffle among all those Single Barrel Offerings from Buffalo Trace (Rock Hill Farms, Blantons, Eagle Rare 10, etc). Maybe we shouldnt let it suffer that fate. honestly I can say I have tried that bottling yet, but it will be on my list to buy now.

    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking??

    As much as I adore the higher proof bottlings by van winkle (and weller & Fitzgerald for that matter), 90 proof seems to be a good point to accentuate the smooth roundness of wheated bourbon. "Lot B", VSO Fitz 12 are among the real taste treats of wheaters at around ninety proof, smooth sippin whiskey.

    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking??

    I got a bottle of ORVW 10/107 recently and am thinking I really like it. Compared to weller 7/107 its got less bite and more fruit--pretty yummie.

    Tonite, its Wild Turkey Rye... how's that for different!

    First drink was caught me off guard. Got used to it during the refill, and am now appreciating its rye-ee goodness.

    Cheers!

    Tonite started with Weller Centennial and has moved on to Wathens. Two VERY different bourbons, both EXCELLENT! Life is good!

    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking??

    Two very different bourbons, but they kinda seem like a logical progression to me. Weller Centennial seems the least "Wheater-Like" of all said bourbons I have tried, and then you just keep gaining intensity as you pour wathens. Oh, maybe I think that way because they are bottled in the same shaped flask. . .
