    Re: What are you drinking tonight, Spring '08

    Well I know I'm a couple days late but Saturday evening, We had the honor and privilege of being invited out to Michigan's King Bourbon Hounds house (OscarV) for the first BBQ of the season. The weather was outstanding a the company and food topped that by a mile!
    Oscar and his wife put on one hell of a spread with grilled leg of lamb, rice and a green bean dish that was also to die for (Hey Doc? What did you call that dish?)

    We started the evening out with Julio's Weller Centennial, ORVW 10/107 and 10/90, Four Roses SB Party Source bottling and some 2006 WTKS.

    Then Dinner! After dinner we had some of Jeremy's Baklava (top notch) paired with Cliff's Pappy 23 yr. old...what a pairing that was. Once again we have a standout in the crowd!
    We had this discussion, every time we get together we have one stand out bottle and the Pappy 23 stood leaps and bounds above everything Saturday night.
    Great thanks to the host and hostess for a wonderful evening and putting up with a couple crabby children at the end. Oscar thank Lynn for playing with Sarah while chasing your cat around. Final thanks to our wives for putting up with us drunks at times and for driving us home!

    Cheers!
    Tony

    To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the end of Prohibition, I'm hoisting a generous pour of a 2007 bottling of WTKS since I don't have any 3.2 beer around.

    Re: What are you drinking tonight, Spring '08

    2007 OFBB. It's been open for awhile, and it just keeps getting better. I had a similar experience with the '06, except that it was just plain undrinkable at first. After several months the '06 turned into a pretty decent whiskey, whereas the '07 was great from the first sip.

    Again, like the BBs, this one is unique in character - it's not like any other bourbon out there, I believe.

    It's a little less dry than when I first opened it, but tobacco and molasses are still dominant flavors. I've mentioned elsewhere I was surprised by this because typically bourbons with that flavor profile are pretty robust, whereas I would characterize the '07 BB as medium-bodied. The mouthfeel is a little oily. I also pick up banana and now a flavor that shows up as it heads into the finish: Bit-O-Honey candy. Great finish - long and velvetty.

    Great stuff. I have another bottle bunkered but I will definitely was to snag another one sometime.

    Re: What are you drinking tonight, Spring '08

    Ok, so I started a little early today as it's only 2 p.m.

    1980 Cabin Still 86 proof which is SW bourbon. I've neglected this for a couple of months and now that I'm drinking some...wonder why. It's a really terrific bourbon. It has that SW nose and I'm picking up dried fruit and maybe a hint of chocolate. Really delicious.

    I agree the OFBB '07 is fantastic and quickly becoming a favorite. I have to get more before it's gone!

    Tonight I drink RVW Lot B and will end with PVW15... man I love these 2!
