    Re: Old Crow, and others

    What's it taste like??
    When I picked it up yesterday, I planned to drink it but paused when I read the label. If Tim wants it back, I'm giving it to him, he was beyond generous with his tax stamped minis and other offerings at the sampler. Actually his post asking for an evaluation of some of those was what sent me after it to begin with. I have a few others I'll try instead.

    Re: Old Crow, and others

    Bobby, I directed it to you knowing that you'd appreciate both its historical significance and taste better than I. That said, I would be proud to taste it with you -- and Gary, if he's available -- at the first opportunity that arises.
    Under no circumstance, however, do I intend to reclaim it.

    Done,I would ask to have Cliff in as well, we would have about 10 mil each, more than enough to pass judgement on.

    Re: Old Crow, and others

    A gent, as always. But Bobby if you'd be minded to taste it I'd be interested in your analysis. I've heard that back then, they used in some cases smaller barrels than is normal, to age the product faster - so in fact although quite young it may taste like 3-4 year old bourbon of today. I always wonder with such things:

    i) is it recognizably bourbon, i.e., as we know it today

    ii) if not, what does it taste like?

    iii) if it is bourbon-like, which bourbon of today is it closest to? Would anyone (who knows whiskey) think, oh this is a bourbon such as we'd see in the range available today, or would he think, no this is something quite different?

    And I am always glad to raise a glass with Cliff, too . Only a bit over 3 months to the Festival...
