    A heretic’s blending notes

    My most recent solera bottle is an attempt to improve a rather harsh and unbalanced Noah's Mill. About 40% NM blended with 30% George Remus and 30% WT 101 Rye does the trick quite nicely.

  4. Another option is to add a column for "Status" - empty, inventory, open, etc. Then you could filter by that column or create a pivot table (and thus have the entire history in one file with no need to save separate versions)... Weller 12 really used to grow on trees here (the one price outlier was a 1.75L, just hid a bunch of columns to save space here...)

    Ah, achieving Bourbon Zen at an early age? Well done, grasshopper.

    How long has whiskey been your hobby and....

    Drinker since the early 90s, don't tell mom. Hobby since the late 90s. There are times I've thought I would have been just as happy if I'd stuck to Makers and Turkey. The friends made and the good times sharing wonderful horizon expanding pours tell me otherwise. I've yet to dive into the Barrell offerings. Their rise coincided with my taking a step back from grabbing everything that even sort of grabbed my interest. My purchases far exceeded my consumption. I'm much pickier now.

    What Rum/Rhum did you buy today?

    I'm happy to try all three. If I decide I have to have one, or more, I'll buy but this way is best.
  8. Indeed. The smarter and prettier half is very understanding and enjoys the other things as much as I do but has no idea how many there are.

    I've grumbled about this in the past. It seemed to me, that there was some sub par Signature before the change to current label. It was right at the same time the Whiskey Row series was released. The older Signature, and the current OF 100 all good to me.

    A heretic’s blending notes

    guessed this was as good a thread as any: Initial tastings of my recent Beam blend of equal parts 11.5 year KC store pick bottled in 2018, the "mystery" (Beam) 15 year 78.5 corn mashbill bourbon released in a # of different guises, and JB distiller's cut. Average age 10.5 yrs, 109p. Looking forward to trying it again down the road.
  11. trending. i'm enjoying my recently-opened one and only bottle of this. Delish! Wish I would have seen more...
  12. Oh yeah! Secondary back then is what some NDPs sell for retail these days.

    What Bourbon Did You Pass On 2022

    You just might be right @0895. Biba! Joe
  14. I think we have the same friend. Glad to know that particular bottle tastes good.
  15. 2015 is probably my favorite of the ones I've tried ('13-'21). Rutledge went out on top!
  16. I guess Wheater Christmas is officially over. I probably should have saved a sample of this 2015 bottle for sbs, but oh well. Opened this one last year (Dec. 2020) to share with some friends that hadn’t tried it before. They still talk about that night. Pulled it out this recent holiday season for myself to enjoy, and decided it wasn’t going back into storage. Lots of butterscotch on this tonight. It’s tasting sweet and rich, and about the best it ever has. Probably because it’s the end, or it’s the Lindt chocolate I just had. Either way, it’s going out with glory.

    Is OGD 114 MIA near you?

    My Binny’s is sold out too. Come to think of it, I haven’t seen it anywhere around here in awhile. Biba! Joe

    Is OGD 114 MIA near you?

    ...Binny's Highland Park shows it as in stock. Might want to give them a ring or stop by. Could just be an error though, as every other location is sold out.

    Yeah but Joe was a Weller whore before being a Weller whore was cool.

    Is OGD 114 MIA near you?

    Uh, a quick search of the SB threads will turn up discussions of the periodic shortage of OGD 114 and whether it is related to a possible discontinuance of the line. When I panicked back in 2014, I bought EVERY 114 I could find. Average price was around $19.50. In spite of binging on it now and then, I still have more than seven, less than twelve 750mls left from that panic. I have supplemented it now and then - haven't looked lately. I guess it is time to panic buy again. THANKS for the head's up. I need some anxiety to get my blood moving again. hahahahaha

    What Bourbon Are You Drinking Today (Winter 2021)

    ABSOLUTELY OFF THREAD, BUT DAMN YOUR EYES, Joe, IT IS YOUR FAULT!! "Rio Lobo" was a classic Howard Hawks (director) and John Wayne (action figure) vehicle. Even if one detests the two-dimensional character usually played by Wayne, the movie is worth several viewings. What gets ignored is: the supporting cast is a composite of "best supporting actors/actresses" from the 1950s-1960s, and they turn in stellar performances. Jennifer O'Neill (Summer of '42) is the love interest. Like Candice Bergen's talent until she played Murphy Brown, Ms. O'Neill's acting chops get lost in her b

    What’s on the menu????

    Yep I like one pot foods that are hearty. The only thing that I freeze is chili. Always make a double batch and freeze half.

    What Bourbon Are You Drinking Today (Winter 2021)

    I’m following the example set by my Georgia namesake a couple of weeks or so ago. I haven’t had one of these open in quite some time, and I forgot how truly great it is. Wow! SB.Com PS HH Select Stock 127.6 proof in the glass. Bib! Joe

    What Rum/Rhum did you buy today?

    Eh, I’d be in for one bottle but not all three lol. The aging on those is beyond wonderful.

    What bottle did you open today? - 2022

    Bought, opened, and am drinking a DN Reserve. I'll pick one of these up every once in a while when I find it for under $30. I like it.

    BOTM 01/22 Old Forester 100

    I ran across OF BIB early in my bourbon journey. I really liked it, and so I bought just a few here and there. Well maybe more than a few. At one time I had 4 or 5 handles, and numerous other bottles of all different sizes. When the BIB was discontinued for OF Signature, I bought a bottle and thought it tasted pretty close to the BIB. The next bottle wasn’t near as good. And so began an on again off again relationship with OF Signature, OF 100, and OF whatever. Name change, bottle change, label change, name change etc.. Not sure if and/or when I might try another. I have one tax stamped ha
