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

    Home with the Mother of all Flu's...put a full shot of OGD 114 in some tea with lemon and honey. I still feel crappy, but it doesn't matter as much.

    Well, technically not tonight.

    Just went to a big warehouse wine sale with 2 friends and on the way back talk turned to whiskey. Two of us are big Pappy 20 fans; the third wasn't a big whiskey fan. I suggested that we come in for a Pappy tasting and they agreed.

    We had a small tasting of Pappy 20, Pappy 15, and Old Forester Birthday (hadn't opened it yet). I also poured a sample of the BT Experimental Chardonnay, since we had just had several Chardonnays.

    Overall, a nice Saturday afternoon.

    They flu just does not seem to like Bourbon... dulls the pain, but you pay for it the next morning...

    I had to take a couple of days off the sauce to recover... well mostly recover before I started up again...

    better heath to you... I toast to your recovery with someEvan Williams....

    A nice, slightly heavy pour of 4R1B. Very good.

    As a nitecap, a little Knob Creek.

    It has a good nose with barrel wood, some charred notes and some pleasant estery scents, like apples. There are no off-scents or discordant notes. The taste is clean, medium-bodied, medium-rich, inclining to vanillin sweetness but with a good distillery character in evidence. Light oak char reappears in the finish.

    I find it interesting how Knob Creek stands apart in palate from the rest of the Beam line including Old Grandad. I can't detect any of the orange or anise notes that the other whiskeys have. Knob Creek seems to go for a different profile. A fine product and the Beam flagship bourbon in my opinion.

    Last night's original plans changed. No limo ride into the city, so I have extra Pappy 20 now.

    Went to a steakhouse in the 'burbs. Perusing the bourbons behind the bar, and to my surprise saw Lot B. This was good. Followed that with a Bulleit, which I've never had. The Bulleit had kind of a tobacco taste. Very different. We got our 4th man to convert to MM after a vodka martini.

    In talking to the bartender, a guy next to me heard me mention 4R and struck up a conversation. He ended up being the original brand manager for Knob Creek, ho fortuitious and he came over and talked to us for a little while.

    Had Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon with dinner, an incredible wine.
    Another highlight for me was steak tartare appetizer!!

    Old Rasputin Imperial Stout - a perennial favorite.

    Laphroaig 10 - ditto

    Oh, wait, this is a bourbon site? Okay- time to move on to S-W Weller 107.
