  1. Past hour
  2. Just watched James Bond in "SPECTRE", the 2015 movie. Only a glass from among my best bottles matches up with suave super-spy action, and so I had a generous pour from a Loch & Key store pick of Blanton's. A most excellent bourbon, Mr. Bond.
  3. Today
  4. I Haven't purchased it yet, but I'm stopping by the store tomorrow and debating between a store select of RR Single Barrel i've been eyeing and OF 1920. I'd love to get both, but need to pick up some OF Mint Julep for a Derby party next weekend too and can't blow the bourbon budget on May 1st. Suggestions?
  5. Finishing off the night with some CEHT SB. One of my favorites from BT.
  6. Wild Turkey 13 year. Tasting spicy and delicious tonight. I've been on a Rye kick lately so a return to bourbon was in order
  7. Had some Stagg Jr 130 proof and then some Ancient Ancient Age 10 year while grilling.
  8. Opened my first ever bottle of W12. Was not disappointed at all. Now I just have to get another so I don't have to nurse this one.
  9. Well I finally got my first bottle of W12 (Thanks Black Tot) and tonight I opened it. Two words, LOVED IT! Was not disappointed at all. Stood in front of the cabinet trying to decide what to have for my second pour and then it hit me. Just did the Castle & Key Tour (Old Taylor Distillery) so what better way to celebrate a great weekend than with a CEHT SB BIB.
  10. The dregs of 2016 Booker's. It was nice.
  11. Rainy and cold weekend here in Chicago called for a pour of FRPS OESO and 1792 FP Binney's select I'm currently working on. Enjoying the 1792 heat a bit more than the OESO on this cold Sunday.
  12. Arran 12 Cask Strength Batch 5 for me this afternoon.
  13. Yesterday
  14. If you need a taste tester I am willing and waiting, just PM me. Also since I have your attention. I like that wood you are using I just wish it was a little more pronounced. Then again I only just opened the bottle so we'll wee what oxidation and time does. Though in the empty dry glass I wasn't getting the nose like Belle Mead (regular) I cant stop sniffing that empty glass. Best of luck.
  15. That's an epic night of man vs. bottle I'd be out of commission for a few days though. Sounds like you pulled through OK.
  16. I don't do this often but I only had one thing Friday night but I had quite a bit of it... surprised a great friend on his 50th birthday by showing up to his surprise (at his wife's urging) with a handle of BT and a bottle of 2015 Bookers which is his favorite. What I don't do often is drink to excess but between the two of us we put down 2/3 of the handle before the night was over - didn't have anything on Saturday and so far not today - but... I'm about to have a celebratory pour of PVW15 from 2012 as we just signed a contract on the sell of our house so now the hunt begins in earnest for a replacement!
  17. I think I'm in the minority here, but I liked the WTMK 17 better. Even tried them sbs at a tasting last week. This was good, but I won't be laying any of these away in the bunker, except for the one extra I have on hand (due to a gift card)
  18. It's a beautiful day here n Maryland. 70-75 degrees this evening. Just finished some spare ribs and chicken thighs on the smoker. Enjoying some RRSiB neat while the rest of the charcoal burns off in the big green egg. Sublime.
  19. Very spicey & sweet and the apple is just enough to give it a great Xmas roast vibe. A mince pie of a cocktail. *Bengali Cider* 2 oz Rum, Old Monk 1 oz Apple cider 1⁄2 oz Lemon juice 1⁄4 oz Allspice Dram 1 bsp Cinnamon syrup 1 ds Bitters
  20. Four Roses Single Barrel . . . Warehouse EN, Barrel No. 37-4E . . . 100 proof deliciousness. I think I'll have another.
  21. Totally agree. The regular MM would just be a mixer for me. I like the 46 better and I recently picked up a PS 46 with 5 French Mocha staves and it is superb.
  22. After our Castle & Key tour we stopped by Woodford Reserve. Did the quickie Warehouse Tour with a tasting of WR Distiller's Select and WR DO. Headed back to Louisville to take my daughter to dinner for her 28th birthday. Cunningham's Creekside for great fish sandwiches and probably the best onion rings in the Ville. Had a WR while there. On to O'shea's to meet some friends for a drink and finished the evening with a FR Single Barrel.
  23. Taking it easy after getting home from Bardstown
  24. Jack Daniels Silver Select while dinner is simmering Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. @ModestGlutton, yes, you'll probably get tons of orange citrus in batch #38, as that is a defining characteristic of the most recent batches, along with the vanilla and candy/toffee/caramel type aromas. I'll be out there in a couple more weeks to start assembling this year's batches, so no doubt I'll find a lot more of that orange citrus note. Glad you like the citrus!
  26. Cracked this open as I had Ledaig on the brain. Wonderful pour.
  27. One of my favourites. Pouring some Talisker 10 this evening. Got the fire burning so peat is necessary!
  28. Well you should probably give some credit to it since Chris Morris himself confirmed it was staying.
