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

    Picked up a mini of Knob Creek tonight. My allergies are acting us so I'm not enjoying it as much as I could.

    Still on the Binny's Blanton's. I have come to the conclusion that it displays more sweetness, or a honey quality.

    Eagle Rare came up on the entry screen and I haven't had it recently, so it is a good choice.

    I kinda stumbled on it by accident last year when I saw it and it remminded me of Eagle River, WI, where my son goes to camp, so I bought it.

    I was pleasantly surprised, especially for the reasonable price.

    Willett#1....Mmm, Mmm, good. And well deserved after what must have been the longest week of school in my life.

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

    Started out tonight with a generous pour of Rare Breed. Still trying to figure this stuff out; I'm sure it's a quality pour but to me it seems a bit overdone somehow, a burnt caramel/pine pitch kind of flavor seems to dominate. I'm not loving it but I'm giving it every opportunity to win me over, though. It does seem to benefit from a bit more time in the glass or an ice cube or two. I like to drink neat, but am open minded enough to try to accept things on their own terms when warranted.
    That being said, my second pour was a Four Roses Single Barrel 100 proof (having it right now as a matter of fact) and all I can say is, this stuff is PERFECT. I'm a bit of a newbie but once I tasted truly good bourbon I decided to make a bit of a committment to exploring it. I've bought several bottles in the last year, often multiple bottles of the same stuff just to learn the particular characteristics of each one before moving on and comparing. When I arrived at the Four Roses Single Barrel 100 proof I knew I was in a whole 'nother league. I'm glad I brought back two bottles from Kentucky; the first one's almost gone. At least I'll have something to drink on my way back down there from New Hampshire to buy some more!
    Cheers!

    750 ml of Three Philosophers Quadrupel topping off with a Stagg as I watch Kansas City Confidential. Doesn't get much better!

    Personal blend of four beers (3 stouts and Creemore lager - killer combination, 3:1 stouts to lager) in an English pint sleeve (glass) chased by a half ounce each successively of Harper 80 proof, a genever vatting and a rum vatting. Lots of intense tastes but in toto not more than two drinks taken, which is enough for tonight.

    And, watching my new Raspberries reunion DVD, it came with their live reunion CD, I love it! "Want a hit, record, yeah, want a hit, record, yeah - oo -oo -oo"!

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

    What didn't I drink. Went to a tasting this afternoon and enjoyed many of the following:

    ORVW 15
    ORVW 10 (Frankfort) - really fantastic. I need to get more of these bottles
    GTS '04 - best Stagg of all (that we've tried anyway)
    Ezra B 12 year
    Jack Daniels Silver Select - Wow...really really good.
    Blantons Silver - another good one
    WT Tribute - hmmm....very much liked this one
    Binny's 12 year - honey barrel (14+ year Bernheim)
    Buffalo Trace Single Barrel
    EC 12
    Van Winkle Rye

    I think there were others but after a while, it got a little fuzzy. Good food, good company and really fine bourbon.
