    Re: What are you drinking tonight, Spring '08

    Scott...I have an old bottle of Weller Special Reserve 90% - 7 years old...I purchased this years ago before I even enjoyed bourbon...just to have as a bar bottle.

    For some reason, over the years when I tasted it, it never wowed me. So tonight, I pulled it out again.

    It has a nice nose...some sweet notes....light amber color..it is a wheater....a fairly smooth mouth feel...oaky...with a finish that ends a little dry. I am not great at identifying specific tasting notes...but my overall impression is that it is ok.

    Here are some tasting notes...our own Spun-Cookie added one:

    "Neat:
    Very light and crisp... light tastes of oak, pecans, and vanilla"

    Seems about right....the pecan note is appreciated as an after taste.

    Old Overholt from 1974
    Old Fitz 1849 8 year and current
    IW Harper 15 year
    It was the 22 yr. Not sure which release, however.

    I also tried:
    • Old Granddad BIB (ND)
    • Old Granddad 86pf from the 70s
    • Old Granddad 114 from early 80s (ND)
    • GTS Spring '05
    The last one was the bourbon that turned me into a bourbonian. The OGD 114 by ND was outstanding. That may be my favorite of the bunch.

    Doh! How could I forget? We also tried an Eagle Rare SB 10yr that was a Julio's special pick. I'm not normally a fan of ER as I find it too candied and fruity, but this one was different. More wood and spice to balance it out making for a very good bourbon. Normally I pass on ER, but this one I would buy ... if only I could.

    I'm celebrating the Cavs dismantling of the Wiz with a generous pour of Blanton's followed by an OGD BIB nightcap.
