    Re: What are you drinking tonight, Spring '08

    Tonight I had some Iron Horse and cola premix.
    Iron Horse is a Heaven Hill Bourbon that is bottled exclusively for the company I work for in Australia. The bourbon itself isn't bad, but I am really sick of premixed drinks!

    Last night was current-vintage OGD BIB with a couple cubes, followed by 80s ND OGD 86 with one cube. Similar recipe, but a more complex, caramel-like, taste to the ND version.

    Re: What are you drinking tonight, Spring '08

    Couple nights ago I made a great Manhattan:

    3 parts JB White (I know, not the best)
    1 part sweet vermouth
    2 drops Angastura bitters (sp?)
    1 Maraschino Cherry

    Shaken with ice for about 20 seconds to get it nice and cold. It was one of the best I've made. I used to do 2/1 Bourbon/Vermouth, but with the JB, I think the 3/1 works better (and makes a bigger drink!)

    Interestingly, I tried using the Basil Hayden recently, and even at 4/1 ratio, it tasted too strong of vermouth.

    Working on a bottle of Wild Turkey American Spirit. While it may be overpriced, I have enjoyed the dickens out of it and by the time I'm finished with it, I may figure it to be reasonably priced.

    Re: What are you drinking tonight, Spring '08

    I am enjoying a few pours of 4 roses 40th.

    I am quite impressed with this everytime I have it.

    The citrus/spearmint taste is decadant.
    Cheers,

    Mike,

    I'm with you there, buddy. I love the American Spirit and I just purchased the last 8 bottles Pernod Ricard had left in Australia. Should last me a long time!
    We got 6000 of them in Australia, and it only arrived in December so it has been snapped up pretty quick.


    Tonight I had some Elijah Craig 12yo and now I am sipping on some WLW 06 and eating some fudge. They seem to go well together.

    While it may seem fairly late, I've stayed up late so I can sleep all day tomorrow (occupational hazard of working nights) so I'm having a night cap now; Buffalo Trace on the rocks.

    Re: What are you drinking tonight, Spring '08

    I just returned from a funeral in Indiana. While there, my cousin, who hasn't drank in 25 years due to diabetes, told me to help myself at his bar (which is still stocked pretty well). I found a half gallon, half full, of Early Times bourbon. I thought it was quite good. I know that Early Times is no longer a bourbon. Can some of you who have been around bourbon longer than me shed some light on this for me. I was going to try to talk him out of it and buy him a modern replacement so that I could take it to the gazebo for the Sampler, unfortunately he had to go to the hospital and I really didn't want to approach him about it there. I'll be back in Indiana in August, and I'll try to get the bottle for the KBF gazebo in September.
