    Old Pogue. Bought this awhile ago and didn't like it much on the first try...I mean, I thought it was OK, but not worth the price. Now it's a few months later and I don't know what I was thinking...tastes pretty damn good to me now. In fact, I think I'll have another!

    Four Roses Single Barrel. It never disappoints.

    It's worth a trip to Kentucky to buy some.

    Just finished off a little FC103 and now it’s a smoke and then off to bed.

    WT RR 101 and now WT Rare Breed. I think I prefer the RR. IMO it has more balance the RB could use a little more age. I wish I could get another bottle of the RR 101. I'll just have to savor the bottle I have.

    Tonight was a EWSB 94 edition and now a nice big pour of Gentleman Jack.

    Been waiting all year for this...

    Last year, when my company 'rightsized' me out of a great job, I found good bourbon to be a luxury I could no longer afford. I was fortunate enough to find a great job, but for less money. However, I bought a bottle of Bookers with the idea I would not open it until I was back in the black, so to speak, vocationally.

    Today, I am accepting a psostion with a great company and getting ready for a night of sipping what I have been craving for almost a year.

    For those who have experienced it, please tease me with what it will be like to finally savor it!

    Thanks!

    Classic Cask 20 yr which I found for $50 (is that a good price?).

    It's very good, but not sure I enjoy it more than say PVW 15.

    I find that circumstances (a special event, being with good friends, etc.) have a lot to do with the taste and enjoyment of bourbon. So, not only is Bookers a very good pour, I'm sure you will enjoy celebrating your new job.
    Congratulations!

    Cool

    A large pour of J. W. Dant BIB on the rocks. I can definitely taste the family resemblance to Elijah Craig. Mmmmmm.
