    One in the group has developed an appreciation for bourbon so we both enjoyed the FR. I really love the honey that I get in this bottle.
    Bourbon and drafts can be fun! You can lead a horse to bourbon but you can't make them drink. At least one drinking buddy makes it much more fun!

    I am with you! Air time always adds to WFEs as does water. You are lucky to enjoy this selection. I know you shop with Eric but I am not sure whether you got to participate in the selection. Was this originally a 10-year selection but ended up 11-year selection due to bottling delays?

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking? Summer 14

    Im very new to the bourbon game. I lurked on here for about three months and figured I should start contributing. Just kind of felt at home around so many people that have a passion for the spirit I fell in love with. Anyway, it amazes me how good Weller Special Reserve is for the price. Im working working on a healthy pour in my Glencairn.

    Had a glass of 4R 2014LE with my father-in-law after we celebrated his dad's 102nd birthday. Great guy (both!) and pretty cool birthday to celebrate.

    A little bit of everything tonight. Tried SAOS 10 for the first time. Followed by a store blend of AE and finished off with WT Diamond.

    Polished off a bottle of Rare Breed and then continued onward with an already tapped EWSB. Both are very familiar and very good. I've turned a lot of folks onto RB over the years, and this bottle won a couple of new converts as over as well. I'm looking forward to moving on to the latest version, at just over 112p, in the very near future.

    Yes, I was a part of the tasting panel for the WFE selections. Originally this was a 10 yr old at time of initial selection, but it took Willett so long to actually get around to bottling it that it became an 11 yr. Same with the 7 yr originally being a 6 yr.

    Opened WTRB at my fantasy draft. I think 4 of us were drinking it. Tasty stuff. Surprisingly drinkable. Others were not put off by its higher proof, as they usually stay in the 90 range
    Im a simple man. All I want is enough sleep for two normal men, enough whiskey for three, and enough women for four.

    Barrel proof 4RYL, where on earth did you find that?
