    What bourbon are you drinking now?

    As you're sitting in front of your computer reading this forum, what's in your glass?

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking now?

    Well, right this second I'm not drinking anything... but already I can tell that this day is going to call for some serious... tasting...

    So, with that in mind, I will probably have one of my work buddies over to the house and sit back with a few pours of ERSB or Old Forrester 100 proof (or both!) .

    Cheers!

    George T Stagg, 131.8 Spring 2005 Lot B. I would concur with the distillery, "robust" is an appropriate description. I'm not a good enough taster to taste the orange that others have found, but I have oak and anisette in abundance.

    I'm also having a small pour of Spring Stagg. The predominant aroms is...hops. That's right, hops. Not from the bourbon mind you, but I just finished racking an IPA from primary to secondary and I have Centennial hop residue on my hands from where I am dry-hopping for aroma.

    Ahem...back to the bourbon. I get the citrus notes upon which others have commented, but I also get a good dose of spice (allspice, nutmeg, cinnimon). So the underlying flavor/aroma is of russian/spice tea.

    How is the Spring Stagg compared to last year's Stagg? (Same style/quality, better, not as good, etc.)

    I happen to prefer last years to all others, but this is still quite good!

    Thanks. I will bring a bottle to the Gazebo Saturday night. If we don't drink it, maybe someone will want it real bad.

    Since I am feeling sorry for myself as I am not going to Kentucky this weekend, I have been pulling out the good stuff. Last night was GTS, tonight Pappy 15. Tomorrow night, I don't know, but I do know it will be rare and expensive.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking now?

    This morning, I finally got the chance to buy George T. Stagg Spring, 2005, Lot B (131.8 proof), so I just opened a bottle and poured a glass. (Thanks for that opportunity, fine control state north of my "could even mess up a free lunch" "free" state!) Even on the first small sip, this is luxurious, definitive bourbon. I just don't see how bourbon could get better than this. And it doesn't need anything added, not even a drop of water. Wow, hats off to Buffalo Trace and all the good folks there!
