    I nearly did take the plunge this weekend. I stopped by Davidson's after a game of frolf to look for some Ritt BIB and for the first time saw the BTAC, and the Van Winkle family. I was tempted to pick one up, but I don't think I would appreciate it as much as I should. I will wait a little while and let my palette develop a little more...

    Re: Hello from Colorado

    I just wanted the Coloradoans to know that we broke into a bottle of Stranahan's tonight and I was quite impressed. It has a fruity/spicy initial spike and doesn't linger as long as other whiskeys. However, I really like it!

    Must be a newer bottle than mine or maybe they are aging them a bit longer as time goes on. There is no fruit or spice in mine at all, and the raw young whiskey taste stuck to my palate like a famished leech. It might be better now but is still too expensive for what it is. Still, good luck to Mr Stranahan in his endeavor.

    I don't drink to excess. But I'll drink to most anything else.

    remember, I have a noob palate, so take my opinions w/ a grain of salt. That being said, I would have happily continued to drink it if it weren't taken from me.....
