    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking??

    I'm having Weller 12 year old tonight. I bought it last week and have been drinking it the last few days. It is my first Weller and I may be buying more after this. I had almost given up on wheaters, but this is pretty good stuff. I think someone described it as having a more classic bourbon profile than other wheaters. I agree with that. It may be blasphemy, but I think I like it better than ORVW 10/107, which I find a bit harsh. I'll have to try ORVW again and see if I still see it that way.

    Avery, I am also having a hard time deciding on a favorite between Weller 12yo and ORVW 10yo 107. Both are fantastic bourbons, but something about the Weller is a little more approachable and easy to drink. I think I'll try adding a little watter to the ORVW and then comparing them again. Well the great thing is we don't have to decide. I'll enjoy both of them

    I'm with you (and Jeff, too!): I prefer the simple Weller's 12yo to the Van Winkle 10/90 or 107 -- not that there's anything wrong with the latter(s). And, not surprisingly, both are (were) originally "Pappy"'s bourbons.

    I had a healthy shot of Rare Breed, last night while reading a good book (I believe it was John Irving's first, Setting Free the Bears). The RB is superb - sweet, spicy, and flavorful.

    Oh Tannenbaum, Oh Tannenbaum, wie grun ist seiner blatter? (sp?)
    Christmas Tree is up, Lights are on. Patty and I are sitting in front of the fireplace on a rainy Kentucky afternoon. The deanter has mystery bourbon. Patty thinks she emptied a bottle of Ezra B 15YO SB into it. Warm and wonderful.

    I'm about to do a side-by-side tasting of Weller's 12yo and Eagle Rare Single Barrel -- not because they're necessarily similar, but that I can't decide which I like better. I like them both a lot.

    Weller 19yo.
    I keep wavering on this pour. Sometimes I get to much wood
    taste.

    Tonight, it is Elijah Craig 12-yr old. My current bottle is so much smoother and sweeter than what I remember from about two years ago - I definitely remember giving it the description, "firey", then. EC-12 Tasting notes

    I wonder, has the bourbon changed that much, or is it just me?

    Evan Williams Black Label, 7-years old.

    I've read so many conflicting reviews about this whiskey that I had to try it for myself.

    I haven't developed the impressive vocab yet that many of you seem to have, when describing your drinks... All I can say is that it tastes good, but has an edge to it. It's a little "hot", if you will; but that doesn't bother me, since my mouth is extremely calloused from eating blazing hot food all the time. I imagine those with a tender palate would be put off by it.
