    NOW What Bourbon Are You Drinking??

    I see the last "What Bourbon Are You Drinking?" thread is locked, so I figured I'd start a new one. Tonight I started with a nip of Weller 12 yo and then moved on to a bit of Sazerac rye. What are the rest of you drinking tonight?

    Last night it was Michters Single Barrel Bourbon 10y.
    It was a nice change of pace drink. It has some flavors
    I haven't found in other bourbons. Not sure it was worth
    the price. I'll put it in the "variety is the spice of life
    category"

    Re: NOW What Bourbon Are You Drinking??

    my last bourbon was Kentucky Spirit...it was the first time in a long time since I have had it...it is no doubt an excellent bourbon...but I have never been a total Turkey fan...I drink 101 when out because it is often the best of the limited choices but when buying a bottle of premium, i am getting to the point where it is down to almost ANY Buffalo Trace distillery product, Woodford/Forester and EWSB and EC12 and thats about it. I will of course continue to experiment with others for we all know tastes do change and evolve, and new products do appear...I haven't had them all...yet... but my preferred tastes are definately being sharpened.

    I'm re-trying the Van Winkle 10yo 90 proof. I'm a big Van Winkle fan -- Weller's 12yo is a current favorite -- but was disappointed in this bottling when I opened it a week or so ago. I like it better tonight, but it still doesn't 'Wow!' me. And, I'm altogether surprised to even be slightly negative (or, at least, no altogether positive) about a Van Winkle bourbon.

    That is the best excuse I've EVER heard to be drinking at 7:00 AM. I'm envious.

    Weller 107... at first the bite was a bit too much for me, but paired with a full bodied cigar has made this, currently, my go to burbon.

    OFBBFA03

    Tonight I am having my first taste of the OFBBFA03 (Fall Birthday Bourbon). I think I was expecting something similar to last years release. It's not like that at all IMHO. There is a perfuminess to it that takes a moment to get past. Medium bodied with a nose of apricots and a taste of wood and vanilla. Finish is relatively short with just a little vanilla remaining in the back of the throat to remind you it was there. My first impression is I like it. More to come...

    I just opened my one and only bottle of '02 Stagg, and my first impression is.... Holy #$%^, what happened to my pants?
