    Re: What are you drinking tonight? (Spring '07)

    I had an almost half-full bottle of baker's that I decided to revisit, although when I tried to open it the cork snapped.
    When I tried to remove it with a cork screw, it fell to pieces into the bottle. I don't have a cork that fits it, so I really see my only option as drinking the contents before the cork deteriorates. Worse things have happened

    Re: What are you drinking tonight? (Spring '07)

    Yes...spring is here, though I did have a whopping 5 inches of snow at my spread in the Hill Country last weekend after a freak weather event. The wild jackrabbits are eating the remains of the carrots from the melted snowman...and I am drinking circa 2000 Weller 12 and Old Forester 86. Yes...spring has arrived and life is good.

    Got a bottle of Sazerac Rye 18-Year last night. I know, it's not technically a bourbon, but it's in the same collection as my favorite Stagg, so I'll let it slide.

    That's a great whiskey. Nice find.

    Rather than "What are you drinking tonight" I should have maybe posted this under "How to get one hell of a headache". It would now be what is the next morning, and I have one sore head on my shoulders.

    JB Black. My first bottle (375 ml.) of this stuff. OK but not as flavorful or complex as Knob Creek. A little disappointing, particularly after seeing mostly positive reviews. I doubt that I'll buy another.

    Me too, although it is hardly my first, nor will it be my last bottle. I like the fruity nose and smooth heat. This is not a showy bourbon, but rather a nice way to end a long day.

    I started out tonight with... you guessed it, Beam Black. While I don't consider it to be a showpiece bourbon, it's a good, solid pour, and this won't be the last bottle I buy, either.

    After that, some ER101, and now some '05 Stagg. The Stagg is definitely a showpiece, and the ER101 is no slouch.
    Oh no! You have walked into the slavering fangs of a lurking grue!

    Bushmills Single Malt 10yr. It ain't Redbreast but it's good. Much better than the 16yr. IMHO

    Tonight was another pour of Elmer T. Now I'm tired.
