Almost the end of an era. I think this is my last one. I still have at least one green label 90 proof left. And..I like that one a little better.

Just found out earlier this week that my brother-in-law has ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease). So tonight he wanted to sit by a fire. So I pulled out a Pappy 20y to share with him.   

A friend had lost his wife to cancer a few days ago, and to give him a little pick-me-up I told him at the funeral parlor I'd stop by his home with a couple nice Bourbons to raise in her honor after s

Had a little tasting today at the Loch & K(e)y Society.     A pre-game photo to get fishinbowljoe's heartbeat up and running, eyes dilated, and breathing heavy.     ?

A little OBSK sbsbs tonight, before I finish the bottle on the right.

 

The sample jar is from the same rick(run) as the bottle on the right. QN 21 from a couple years back.

 

The middle is from the rick they are currently pulling from for private selections (KE 63).

 

Anyway, they range from 8yrs, 2m - 8yrs, 8m.

They are all very similar, but I like the new bottle slightly better.

It has a little touch of oak at the end that is very nice.

Sipping 4R PS OBSV tonight.  10Y 1M.   Nice thick oily mouthfeel and just enough heat.   But it reminds me that I'm a "E" guy when it comes to Four Roses.

Friday night I had a pour of EW BIB, which I had never tried before.  I was pleasantly surprised.  Saturday night at Bristol Bar & Grille in Louisville their list still showed Fighting Cock 6 year.  I asked and our server checked and yes it was still the age stated version.  Enjoyed a pour of it.  Wish it was still available age stated.

Last night while watching MNF I started with a pour of OGD BIB and followed it with some WR wheat whiskey.

I've got one left and holding on to it to share with my kids.  Plan to do a flight of Heaven Hill BIB products.

Wanted our thing different today so stopped on the way hi and picked this up. The cognac really shines through on this.

Helped a sales team close a deal worth tens of millions of $, they treated me to steak and drinks. Papiez and BTACs were had. Man, I'm an engineer, I'm not used to hanging out with finance and marketing and sales. It all felt like a scene from the American Psycho to me.

Because I said I knew Marekv, I got this Woodford with a shmancy wood stirrer on the house on Delta from Chicago to ATL tonight...They didn’t pony up for a tray, though...  ?

That's funny - on my last flight I said I knew smokinjoe, and they told me JBW was $50, cash only.
