    Re: NOW What Bourbon Are You Drinking??

    Old Charter Proprietor's Reserve. (the 13 yr) This is one of the Heritage Collection and is excellent. I have had the Weller's Centennial which I love, and I know I.W.Harper, which is now export-only, is in the Collection, but what are the other 2? or is it 3? I wish Old Charters of any age were more readily available...

    Buckky,

    Old Charter Proprietor's Reserve is a favorite of mine. I did some tasting notes on it awhile back. If you can get ahold of the 12 YO Classic, that is excellent as well!

    Re: NOW What Bourbon Are You Drinking??

    Speaking of the Heritage Collection, I somehow managed to find a single bottle of IW Harper in a liquor store in Atlanta, Georgia last week. I'm not sure how it got there (it was hidden behind a number of bottles of Weller) but I snapped it up...I haven't tasted it yet, since I'm saving it until I get back to San Francisco. It's been a good trip, bourbon-wise, since I also found a couple of bottles of Weller 19yo, Stagg, and Birthday Bourbon, as well as 4 dusty bottles of Van Winkle Old Time Rye (12 yo) in a liquor store near Lexington, KY. I'm sipping on some of the rye right now, and I'll probably use it to toast in the New Year as well.

    Happy New Year! I decided to open a bottle of Hirsch 16 to celebrate and, after removing the foil (a new one: no wax) I started removing the cork. It started to split and it was a race to get the cork out before it split into pieces. Luckily, I got the cork out and poured a generous drink of Hirsch 16, then found a perfect replecement cork in my box of corks from old bottles.

    Well, the Hirsch 16 is wonderful! I had great expectations for it and it met them all. It is rather mild, in some ways, but this is rather like Sazerac 18: it has the essential essence of what it is down pat, with no wasted motion. This is just fabulous!

    Happy New Years and Best of Success in the coming years~ Cheers, Ed

    Re: NOW What Bourbon Are You Drinking??

    I'm drinking Weller 12yo tonight, and it's as good as ever. Re Hirsch 16yo:

    After not having seen it on a shelf for months, I found and snatched up five bottles (all older wax-topped) between Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve in three different stores. The story is that the area distributor ran across a case buried in the warehouse, and the distribution manager phoned a handful of larger stores to see if they wanted a couple of bottles. If I'm not mistaken, Hirsch is shipped in 6-bottle cases. If so, I only missed one of them. Happy New Year!

    Having spent a number of years drinking Maker's Mark, I decided it was time to truly enjoy myself and I have been wandering through a list of tastings. I now only cook with Maker's.

    My new standard is WT Rare Breed and tonight I am enjoying Kentucky Spirit to celebrate a new job for the new year. With age and a refined palate, the years keep getting better and better.
