    Re: What Bourbon Are You Drinking Now? (Fall Edition 06)

    Old Grand Dad BIB.

    I had hoped to join in with the December BOTM, OGD 114, but it's not available locally. In fact I'd wager a bottle from my top shelf that there's no OGD 114 anywhere within the 8,000 square miles of Yavapai County.

    The BIB is one of the best buys in bourbon. It's both spicy and sweet on the nose. Both elements carry forward to the palate, which has a little tingle at the end. The rather scant finish is mainly spicy, a little dry, but not flinty.

    This is one that Beam does right.

    For 13 bucks it's hard to beat. Plus the tacky orange labeled bottle goes with the girlfriend's fall decorating scheme. I don't understand why Beam doesn't put a little marketing behind it. The local liquor store has approx. 24 750 ml bottles of Beam white on the shelf and no more than 4 OGD BIB at any given time. When you compare taste, proof plus the fantastic orange lable it beats the Beam white hands down.

    I'm following up an opener of Powers Gold Label Irish whiskey with some WTRB.

    VWFRR 13YO.

    It's been 11 days since I had a pour (due to being at work - I work a 10 day rotation with 5 days off at the moment) and this is just a perfect welcome note back to all things good!

    Cheers all!

    I guess good whiskey really does tickle my pickle!

    I'm starting out with a Sazerac cocktail - mixed using '06 Saz 18 rye. One mighty fine drink!

    Like I said...lol...it was a long hard week of work! So, after the Wild Turkey I am now having some Buffalo Trace. I don't seem to enjoy this one as much as some on these boards.

    I just retired a bottle of Pappy 15. *tips hat to Julian*

    I'm leaning towards ER17/2006 for my next pour...
