    Thats funny, oscar, I just cracked my PH open. I have the 127.4 proof.
    I am really enjoying it. A real satisifying finishing burn.

    Last night had a pour of William Larue Weller 2007 while cashing in an online poker tournament. Not a bad evening.

    George Dickel No. 8 on the rocks. Not bad at all. Not a fan of JD, but GD is pretty nice, I have to say.

    Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye 1985, a Frankfort bottling (A batch).

    This one tastes different each time I have it. Sometimes it seems wooded and a little closed. Other times, such as now, it is lively, sweet, oaked but just right.

    It has a very nice perfumed undertone from the way the rye element aged, something generally I don't find in any bourbon although Rare Breed gets it sometimes.

    I raise my glass to Julian, whom we see too rarely on the board these days.

    ORVW 10/107. Okay, so I've been drinking it a lot. My excuse? I'm priming my tastebuds for my PVW 15 which will arrive on Monday!

    For my second dram, Weller 107 (a vatting of different ones, but all the same brand) in a snifter to which I added a dash of mixed bourbons that I use for Manhattans. The mix is based on WR, and its lanolin-like top-note comes through the 10 or so bourbons in there. When you add just a dash of this to Weller 107, the profile of Weller 107, which has its own particular, perfumed taste, is maintained - which is what I want. But what is added is a depth, a heft, from the rye-recipe bourbons in the mix, they give a "center" to the Weller 107 which it lacks by virtue of being the age it is and wheat-recipe. Possibly I'd get the same result by adding simply WR to the Weller 107, but I don't think so. This is really good.

    I was gonna have some Stagg 2006, but I didn't want to go that high in proof.
    So I went and grabbed the Booker's, only 125 proof
