    Re: What are you drinking tonight, Spring '08

    Val and I have been to the Firestone Brewery near Paso Robles, CA. We had a great time tasting through their range of beers. It was several years ago....but I remember it clearly. They fired up their outdoor grill and did hotdogs for everyone. I enjoyed everything we tasted that day and remember thinking ..... "I wish they sold their beers in Texas." Thanks for the notes Gary.

    PS This was the first place I had seen growlers filled and sealed by a brewery for a "to go" draft beer.

    Van Winkle Lot B. I have left this pour alone for a month or two. The biggest reason was I was on a VW long distance flight. Had Lot B , the 15, 20 and the 23 and was overdosing on the brand. This night it is Lot B with one cube and I have sipped 2 generous pours affirming what most of us know.

    Thanks Randy, and I enjoyed your notes. By the way for those who want to see what the traditional Burton taste is like, Marston's Pedigree, quite widely available in bottle and sometimes draft, shows it very well. There is to my taste quite a marked flavor of sulphur in the drink, similar to the scent you get at a curative springs. Bass ale is no longer made using the Burton Unions (Marston's still is), but some claim to detect the Burton signature in its flavor.

    Finished off the evening in Vegas with the house beers at Ellison Casino Restaurant and Brewery. I liked the stout the best. Dinner did intervene, be assured.

    This evening a pour of...well a mixed glass of 60% VROHH and 40% EW BIB...very nicely balanced, with a good blend of youth and maturity. This is just a damn fine all purpose whiskey, I could see this making a good julep or Manhattan, but it's just fine by itself too.

    Re: What are you drinking tonight, Spring '08

    Last night I had ETL... After buying the bottle a couple of months ago I enjoyed it so much I though I'd buy a bottle for my son-in-law for his birthday. His description was interesting...he described it as "tart" and compared the taste to Knob Creek. I would describe the taste of ETL as a little citrus-y and only slightly sweet...but he may be comparing the taste to his long-time favorite, Maker's Mark.
