Damned few and they're all dead
Tonight my Rare Perfection 21 and 25 yr, American Cowboy 20yr and Old man Winter 25yr showed up...
I love those Rare Perfection and Old Man Winter bottles, they are pretty classy looking.

Picked up WT101 last Friday. As a true beginer, I thought I'd compare it against my existing collection: JB White and Basil Hayden.
JB White: the opposite of smooth (but drinkable)
BH: Smooth, but a little bland
WT101: Nice taste, but strong (I preferred a few ice cubes to mellow it)
The next night, I made a couple Manhattan's with the WT101 for some company and myself. We all agreed the WT101 was too strong, and threw off the balance of the drink. At this point, I prefer the JB White for a Manhattan.
Took some tax money and did what the Gov hops... I spent it.. on all the 25 yr bourbon's I could find. One of these days when I get down to 10-12 open bottles, I am going to open then for a tasting...
While out shopping this past weekend, I finally ran across some OGD 114 in my area! I had already had my mind set on the WT 101 so I passed on the OGD this week. When the WT is gone, OGD will be mine! I have heard it was high rye, which I like and am looking forward to enjoying it soon!
Restocked the WTRB, Weller Special Reserve, 107 Antique...
If you can locate some Rittenhouse Rye in your area, that is the best stuff for making a Manhattan. If you cannot find Rittenhouse, try Fighting Cock(a bit on the hot side) or Old Grand Dad, anything with a high Rye content. Just don't go by way of a Canadian Whiskey to get the rye flavor, it's not there.
Four bottles of Weller Antique, since it's apparently going to be scarce for a while.
