Ahhhh, Joe; you say that about ALL the Wellers!!!!   :P ...And, as it happens; You're Right!

I know Rich. What can I say? ;) 

 

It was a really busy weekend for me. I took an inventory of my bourbon, and cleaned, dusted and polished my cabinet. I also took care of a couple of honey do's, as well as a few other things that I'd sadly neglected for a while. After my Saturday morning pour of 08 WLW, I really didn't have much else the rest of the weekend. Today's another story. It was a different but decent day at work. I'm hittin' my 2018 Weller Blend this evening. :P 

 

FWIW, the pic below is a current one of all my Weller's. Maybe not quite bourbon zen, but I feel a little more comfortable than I did a couple of weeks ago. :)

 

Biba! Joe

Hey Joe,

 

Is that a bottle of Weller Centennial in the lower right corner of your collection???  OMG!   You ARE "The Man!"  We're not worthy . . . . .:lol:

 Yes it is Gee. It's my very last one. I'm saving it for a really "special" occasion. I've been fortunate to have had my fair share of Centennial over the last 10 years. Even though I found a few on my own, a number of fellow SB members helped me procure a few others. In paying it forward, it's also been fun to be able to share a few with others along the way. :)

Too new to the hobby to have even recognized the Centennial.  Those William Larue Wellers on the left though . . .   I think I have read every review from the first three pages of a google search.  Multiple times!  May sound weird, but its my favorite bourbon to read about because it seems that every release/review is outstanding.  Unfortunately, have not tried it, but hopefully soon.

 

I did mix a bottle of Joe's Centennial blend.  (15 oz W107. 5 oz WSR and 5 oz W12)  Think I am going to get into that and some regular W107 tonight and see how they stack up!

Some time you feel like a cube and sometime you don’t.  Tonight it seemed right with a pour of ER.

Road trip back to the Lone Star state is indicated!   Resistance is futile . . . . . . .  :ph34r:

 

Update:  Which Spec's is that?  Just checked my College Station Spec's and they list the Bushmills 21 @ $234.73!  Even with their Spec's card cash discount and Texas sales tax that's still a good "chunk of cheddar" away from $130 OTD.  Road trip currently on hold - boo hoo.   :huh: 

 

Update 2:  Just checked East Plano and Plano Spec's, too.  Still $234.73 - was this a Special Sale or Clearance price?   :(

 

 

i picked it up at the east Plano store. They had to unlock the glass case. Was not on sale, or clearance. It was at that price for months, and that was summer and fall 2017.

Saturday night before seeing the play School of Rock enjoyed a great dinner at Bistro 301 with my first pour of Noah's Mill.  Was surprised at the amount of flavor.  After the play at the new speakeasy at the Omni Hotel had a pour of KC Rye.

Spring sprang - So I cracked open some W12 along with a Pappy stogie.  Both were excellent.

Watching some NIT with an incredibly corn forward JWDant BIB.  If I didn't know better, I would have pegged this as Mellow Corn.  Not a bad thing, mind you.

Is this recent production Dant? I've passed it by a few times but my love of BIB's keeps me curious

It is a recent bottling.  The corn notes really struck me, as I regularly drink other HH BIB’s and generally consider them to be mostly similar in profile and with only slight differences.  This was huge roasted corn.  I’ll need to spend more time with it to see how it plays going forward on different palate days.

:lol: I have so many questions but will save most of them. Does OWA pair better with pasta than other bourbons? Also, what goes on the pasta?

Haha, not a pairing, it's just that I always get this craving for pasta as a midnight snack, and the 20min preparation time is a good excuse to pour some no frills bourbon. You know, just to kill time ;) I post this same story quite frequently here.

ECBP A117 tonight.  Been on a diet, so really wanted a bold pour tonight.  Mission accomplished...
