    Re: What bourbon are you drinking now?

    Opened my first bottle of Hirsch 16 in honor of achieving brown-belt in kung fu this weekend. Delicious stuff.

    Right now I am drinking Evan Williams Single Barrel '95 with the wonderful creamy vanilla taste as soon as it hits the mouth.

    I'm enjoying its sibling -- Michter's Sour Mash Whiskey, from a 1978 bottling, so perhaps distilled at about the same time the Hirsch was in 1974.
    Apple-pie spice and fruit. Hirsch with the bark stripped off.

    Congratulations, never made it past purple here, but my daughter made brown. Does your system go from brown to red and then black?

    Pappy 20 tonight in my glass, it is a night of celebration for us.

    Thanks! In our style (chu'an fa kajukenbo kung fu), brown is the last stop before black. I've been training hard for 5 years. It feels great to have made it this far, but the home stretch over the next year and a half will be very challenging.

    Tonight's pour: Stagg Spring 05.

    Well Done Clayton - that's an awesome achievment

    I tried to find a bottle or 95 Evan Williams Single Barrel for a party tonight, but it doesn't appear to have hit our shores yet
    Nearly bought another bottle of Bulleit, but settled for a bottle of Jim Beam Rye instead

    Just now I am sipping on double of Elmer T Lee. It has been a little while since I had this one. Sweet and spicy, nice finish. Before that I had a double of Old Forester 86 proof. Not as sweet, just as spicy. I am getting a hint of grape in both of them. Probably me rather than the bourbon. I never noticed it before and probably never will again.

    Re: What bourbon are you drinking now?

    The EWSB 95 is available in Australia, at least around where I live. Having tried and loved all of the EWSB since 93, I'd say that the 95 is more a bold flavour profile than the 94, but sacrifices a little bit of the depth and complexity of the previous years. I personally prefer the 94.

    Tonight (My Birthday) I enjoyed the first taste of a new bottle of Bookers that I bought for myself. A lot more sweet than I remembered it. Followed by a sip of a new bottle of Rare Breed, and Finally some EC12. I still prefer the EC the most.
