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

    Oscar - if this is your first taste of ETL I would recommend trying a different bottle of (ie. Binny's version). The last thing I would call ETL is thin based upon my experience with the few bottles I have consumed that were purchased at Hi Times, Beverages & More and Binny's.

    Ouch, that's some expensive and hard-to-find unimpression.

    What I mean is that it seems to be thin, I saw once someone said it had a "narrow range".
    I have to agree with heatmiser, the "honey barrels" are very nice. I bought some bottles of hand-picked ETL from Schneider's in Washington D.C. and liked it very much. However, they just raised the price to $40 - ouch! Not sure I like it that much...

    Hmm. That would be a good thread to start - people's experience with hand-picked/honey barrels vs. standard releases.

    Tell me about it. I knew going into buying it that WT is rye bourbon, but the flavor to me was just not to my liking. I paid $75 for it so I'll try it again.

    On the potentially positive side I have had many bourbons I did not like or didn't impress me. Then I've tried them on a different day and had a totally different reaction. It wouldn't surprise me if you that kind of experience with the Tribute.

    I'm starting out with some Forty Creek Barrel Select (Canadian), and will open up my bottle of AAA 10 year to close out the night.
    Oh no! You have walked into the slavering fangs of a lurking grue!

    OGD BIB - this could easily be my daily pour. However, I'm not sure about the date so I'd have to buy a current bottle to make sure.

    I am not saying it is bad, but I was a bit suprised at it's lack of depth.
    I am having it on the rocks now and I like it alot.
    But with Mr. Lee putting his name on it I was expecting someting more complex, I wish they would have at least bottled it at 100 proof.

    Are the special retailer's bottles at a higher proof and/or unfiltered?
    And how would you compare it to Ancient Ancient Age 10 year old? I find it similar.

    I've grown very fond of Forty Creek. It's become my favorite non-bourbon pour.
