After looking at the prices some of these are going for I wished that I did.. hence part of me being “torn”.. largely No I do not.. I do however have a very early GTS unopened from that era and a WT gold foil.. also an older opened bottle of PVW15 and a few others.. anyway, I did have many of these from that time period going for these crazy prices, and yes I wished I still had them.. I guess part of what I’d commented on or trying to convey should have been worded a little better.. ;) 

I do have an unopened 19. When i think about opening it, i think about a lot of things hollywood. Not sure how anything could be so good as to be worth $3000. Cant bring myself to sell but cant open it either. Maybe a weak moment one day when im older and wiser.

Kudos my friend! Lol, I'm only 3 hours south, just let me know when the top is getting popped! I'm good even on short notice btw! :)

Finally getting close to "cigar weather" here in Memphis. I've never been able to smoke a relaxing cigar in cold weather, unless I go to the local cigar shop. They really should be enjoyed with some good bourbon and warm to hot weather...just my opinion.

Nice and 100% agree on the weather when smoking a cigar.  I learned early on that it was never worth "forcing a cigar" in the spring when you cannot rely on the weather/sun to be consistent for 2 hours.  PSD4 are classic!  Year?

A healthy pour of JW Dant this evening.  A regular thing for me.

Early Times BiB. It's very good, but unusually sweet. It almost tastes flavored. Someone said it reminded them of OF 1920, which I can definitely understand. Plenty of chocolate and cherries. I hope this is widely available. I bought it in KY while traveling through.

Last pour from the last of their seasonally allocated bottles... unfortunately not a very memorable dram.

Last weekend I finished off a Barrel Bourbon batch 13. Eh. It was ok. I really enjoyed batch 9 but 13 left something to be desired.

This stuff is just insanely good. Seriously, just found my bourbon of the year for 2018, time to hunt another down. Cheers!

What a fantastic example in all facets... arguably unprecedented in color IMO as well. Nice...

I liked it but I just found the 2018 very un-Stagg-like. It was good bourbon but lacked that burnt brown sugar and molasses and a punch of flavor of other Staggs.  I thought it was more subtle and fruity leaning more towards the Eagle Rare cherries end of the spectrum. Another SB'r said it was basically ERBP.

A wee dram of “Bakers with a B” following a brutal day of ill-fated meetings...

Tonight I had some 9yr Old Fitz BIB with dinner. That was followed up with a small pour of Makers Mark PS Loch & K(e)y selection for a night cap and basketball watching.

Last night it was 1792 FP. I’m really loving this stuff. Especially the Binny’s pick version.

I would agree, it’s not as rich or complex as the old ones, but its still delicious. ER barrel proof I can see why and there is nothing wrong with that, i love ER, specially the store pick from The Whisky Exchange that I have. 

Cheers!

Well, I can see what the fuss is about with the Henry McKenna BiB/10. This is a damn fine pour, almost hard to believe it's the same mashbill as the EW etc. (and I have been regularly buying and enjoying EWB and EWSB as the bang-for-the-buck is there in abundance with those...liked the EW BiB too.) Thicker mouthfeel and richer caramel notes, and the occasional slight grassy/dill note I sense in some EWSB I've had is totally absent. Sipped a bit of this while enjoying the latest NPR Tiny Desk concert with Julliard School organ chair Paul Jacobs performing a little tribute to J.S. Bach on his birthday...time to set up the coffeemaker to automagically concoct my mandatory wake-up juice and drag my butt up to bed...but first, the rest of this pour... ?

Pouring some OESK from a favorite barrel for a vacation dram while watching the sunset.  I usually bring some nice bourbon while traveling, since I never can find anything special while I'm traveling.  Anyone else bring bourbon on vacation?
