    Re: What are you drinking this moment?

    While I agree that WR and OF 100 are quite similar, I definitely think that WR is the "classier and more complex" of the two. Its just that, for twice the money, I'm not always sure its worth the difference.

    That said, both of these are definitely among my favorite bourbons and I doubt that you'd ever catch me without a bottle of each.

    At this particular moment, a large Knob Creek on the rocks. Perfect on this crisp, mid-autumn evening.

    For cold weather, I don't know if anything beats Knob Creek. One of my original favorites and still hanging tough.

    Rat, Seeing that I'm just "down the street" I can appreciate the weather description! Good choice, but I went the WT Rare Breed route tonight..However, it is on the rocks, as usual. Cheers, See ya, H'wood

    Re: What are you drinking this moment?

    I find just the opposite to be true. I have had countless experiences with WR and it just doesn't seem to compare in body or smoothness to OF 100. And the price...wow

    Re: What are you drinking this moment?

    I will be very interested to hear of your eventual side-by-side comparison.

    I find the 1849 very drinkable, but I finally dumped a sizeable portion of my BIB. I still hold out hope that I will one day discover that my bottle was not representative.

    Yours truly,

    Re: What are you drinking this moment?

    Yeah, a few nights ago, I debated long and hard whether to open a new bottle of Rare Breed or one of Russell's Reserve. I ended up with the RR, that time. But RB is still pretty much my No. 1 favorite. What am I waiting for?

    That's cool. Like I say, I love them both.

    Re: What are you drinking this moment?

    Comrades, I just opened my bottle of EWSB Bottle#340, bottled on 9/26/91...only because I stopped and bought another bottle tonight in a gift set (two decent, etched rocks glasses included). This one a "'90" model. O.K. I'm going to make this fairly short...a nice "thick" pour with nice "legs" in my rocks glass (I drank it neat though). Initially a spicy flavor, but it was nice because it was very smooth. The part I enjoyed most was that it gave way to a wonderful caramal latte' flavor. Anyway, I enjoyed it...pardon the short description..I only have time for the Cliff's Notes version. See ya, H'wood

    At this particular moment, it is Old Forester 100 on the rocks. I'm watching "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" for the umpteenth time and really enjoying both. What a great whiskey! What a great movie!
