I cracked open the only christmas gift I wanted and got tonight the new Slipknot 2 Disc DVD Voliminal (don't ask) and have had a little Pappy 20, WT 8 year and now some Willett Estate Rye - needs a little watering down to open up and then it is really nice stuff!
Still only on disc 1 so something tells me I'll either get to work late tomorrow or maybe not at all.... It is hard to explain but once you start something like this you just can't stop it half way through.............
....... and disc 2 begins ........ Eagle Rare 17 next perhaps.

Last Night was a taste of Makers Mark while working on the web page. I am planning a trip to the "Bourbon Mecca" this spring to taste and learn more about the early distillers and how they fit into my antique bottle collecting.
I took a peek at your website -- most interesting and entertaining, but I think I'll probably retain my interest chiefly in a bottle's contents.

I had a pour of Pappy 20 year old.
Now I am into a pour of WT Kentucky Spirit.
I know the Pappy 20 is ledgendary, and I love it.
But one thing that I look for in a bourbon in depth. I think the WTKS has it over the Pappy.
Also there is an initial sweetness in the WTKS before the heat comes on that I like.
A mixture of JB White label and FC103 at about a 1.5:2 ratio, respectively. It's not too bad but unfortunately there is more of the thin, woody taste of the white label than there is the FC103's sweetness.

Just finished off a bottle of MM and EWV 95 and am starting a bottle of WT RB. Looking forward to a happy new year.
