    I'll drink to that... with a generous pour of WTRR101.

    First pour of the night is BMH 11yr. Maybe some of the 16yr next...

    Yellowstone 86-proof. Bottled in the late-70s. Very interesting, rounded palate. Good, but young. I like it more than others in this price/age/bottling date range (e.g. Sunny Brook).

    Then, some OC12. Wow. This stuff continues to amaze me. I hope the price doesn't climb too much, or I won't be able to accomplish my goal of total liver annihilation before I'm 40.

    If I leave it sitting for about 15-20 minutes, Old Weller Antique 107 gives a nice aroma of pipe tobacco. So I thought this one might pair well with a cigar or a pipe. I ended up with an Arturo Fuente Gran Reserva this evening. Don't know much about cigars but this one is fairly mild with a nutty palate. Plays off well against the rich, creamy aroma/palate/texture of the Old Weller. Can't wait to try it with my pipe. Regardless, they both go well with some Mississippi Blues. This is my first back porch session of the year. Welcome Spring!

    Spring? It's spring here?!

    I just had a couple Cocktails a la Louisiane, one made with Rittenhouse BIB and the other with Baby Saz.

    Well according to the calendar...it's Spring. This past weekend we had snow flurries....go figure.

    Tonight I popped open a fresh bottle of ETL. First time pour for me and it's a tasty bourbon. I was concerned over other threads that this bottle would be "earthy" or "woody" but it's definitely a sweet bourbon. I paired it with my wifes homemade apple pie......

    Well, time to chime in for spring. I guess I'm pretty dull and boring at this point because I am starting spring off with the same thing I finished winter a few nights ago: Eagle Rare SB/90 followed by a generous pour of Eagle Rare 101 from the New Orleans label. Both Eagles get better each time I take flight with them!

    Cheers to Spring!!!

    Since I'm home in Lville, I went by my favorite beer bar and had:

    All On Draft!!!
    Stone Brewing Double Bastard
    Bluegrass Brewing Metamorphosis
    Regenboog Guido
    Clipper City Peg Leg Imperial Stout

    Also brought home (since they have a carryout license as well, Rodenbach Grand Cru.)

    Yup a bourbon free night, but I wasn't suffering much!

    My first taste of Rittenhouse Rye BIB. Having read so much about this pour, I looked forward to it all day.

    I get it, Great Whiskey.
