    Re: What Are You Drinking Tonight, Winter'07/'08

    I've had a cold the last couple of days so haven't indulged in much bourbon. Tonight I'm feeling better so I pulled out my '06 WLW and cut it to about 100 proof.

    My first sip of WTRB tonight. Very good stuff. It's right up there with McKenna BIB S1B. I'll be buying another bottle.

    For a chilly evening/morning, a spicy warm start with the 2005 edition of VWFRR ("G") followed by a smooth nightcap of OFBB of same year.......will sleep good tonight.

    my own odd vatting that works quite well (so far!):

    WT rye/Eagle Rare 10 SB/WLWeller Special Reserve (from the 80's)

    though equally blended in thirds, the WT rye asserted itself amid the sweet WLW wheat and the ER 10...! anyways, yum...
    HUP!

    I like 1792...different to any other bourbon, and a welcome change from time to time.

    Had some WT12 with a bowl of pipe tobacco. Then WT 101 at a bar (damn good!). Now going to have some Bowmore 15 Mariner (now discontinued) to close the evening.

    Yes, 1792 is different because it doesn't have the "burn" the others do, and it feels different in the mouth. The downsides are that it doesn't have all the flavor I expect, plus it's so smooth it's tempting to just keep drinking more and more of it.

    Tonight is two shots of Old Forester 80 followed by Sam Adams Light: I gotta get up early tomorrow. And I want to finish the SA Light I have because the SA White Ale is going to be on sale real soon and I have to stock up - by early April they'll be out of the stuff for the rest of '08.

    Last night I opened a fresh bottle of Booker's; 8yrs 2mo batch no C97-A-31 This one has been in the back of the hutch for some time. It is better than the last bottle I opened some time ago. That one got consumed over the holidays with the help of various guests.

    Earlier tonight we went out for an early supper; a belated birthday celebration. Janean just turned the same age as Jack Benny. And apparently, like he was, she's determined to stay that age from now on. Anyhow, we had a nice meal complete with a bottle of Beringer 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon, Knights Valley. I suppose to any true wine connoisseur it is quite pedestrian but we enjoyed it.
