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

    I am enjoying my first ever bottle of ER 10yr SB 90. This is a nice little pour for the $20 I paid for it I can only imagine how good the 101 is/was. It's good enough that I will pick up some of the BTAC ER in the near future. I was going pass on this one because of the low proof for the money. But that would clearly be a mistake. A nice pour to go along with some Van Morrison- Tupelo Honey.

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

    Tonight I am drinking from my latest bottle of Stagg. I'm not particuarly enamormed with this bottling, there doesn't seem to be the depth that I am used to for a Stagg bottling, its hot (144 proof) but doesn't seem to have the flavors I have found in past issues.

    Although after the last 7 days on the job there is definatly something to be said for a good stiff drink (or 3)!!!!!!

    WT RB......We had tacos for supper and my heartburn is back despite taking a Zantac. I may poor it back into the bottle or cover the glass and finish it tomorrow.

    VWFRR followed by WLW 06 to warm up a bit on a chilly night. I would add Rittenhouse BIB to the lineup but I have hid the bottle from myself. I may have to pick up another one if it doesn't turn up in the next day or two. What little rye I do own at present is beginning to grow a bit fond of my company here of late.

    Hey Greg just wondering what of the early 80's Old Taylor you did not like? I found 2 today from 83' and opened one to compare to you note. Although it has a short to medium finish I thought it was pretty good for $9 bucks. The nose has a sweet cheery and vanilla to it. I get a little burn at first but the sweet cherry vanilla comes back with a little nugat with very light oak at the very end.

    Just wanted you thoughts! and what is better now?

    [Well, last night...]

    1968 Old Taylor (from a recently-purchased castle decanter), followed by:

    2003 (Spring 1990) Old Forester Birthday Bourbon, followed by:

    1968 Old Fitzgerald BIB (from the Sons of Erin decanter)

    All delightful -- surprisingly Old Taylor won the battle in this particular order!

    The 90 is good, and can be found at a bargain price in my area(s). The 101 is far better, IMO. But I've been bunkering ER101 considerably over the past year in anticipation of its loss.

    Tonight, I'm enjoying BT followed by VWFRR.

    First, some ORVW 10/107 blended with '07 WLW. Currently, equal parts '07 Stagg and '07 ER with a spit of water.
