Nice choice on the OGD. I just poured myself some ND OGD BIB. Very good stuff. What sort of OGD do you have?
100 proof BIB orange label. My first trip with this. I am very interested and curious. I got in a hurry and finished the VOB with intent to get to the OGD. Will try it tomorrow night or over the weekend.
I like the current Grand Dad BIB more than its predecessor of, say, 25-30 years ago. Beam is to be complemented for not messing with the mash bill or otherwise changing this fine old brand. Yes, I know, different place, still and warehouse(s), but the point is the formula wasn't changed and the stuff I can buy today is good as or better than what I could get before.
Oh, consistent with the thread, my night cap is NAS Bonded Dant.
Nice coincidence with all the Beam talk. I just finished a bottle of OGD 114. This and Knob Creek are two Beam offerings that I just love. I have a bottle of Baker's standing by and I'm hoping that it will be another Beam favorite.

I am having a glass of Bulleit. Nice rye spice to warm me up after being outside in the cold all day. It's been a busy week at work and this is sure helping to take the edge off. I can pick up on the "red hots" flavor that several people mention, and maybe nutmeg? Anyway, I am enjoying it.
My first taste of WTRB. Delicious.
