Once again having some 2012 FR LE SmB and coming away disappointed. Not that it's horrible but it's probably my least favorite LE, maybe even PS, FR I've had. Granted, my expectations for their LE's is always very high but after having a handful of pours over the last 3 months, I'm wondering what went wrong. This combination of recipes should be outstanding so maybe it's just me.

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.     ?

Continuing to reach only into the back reaches of the closet. In this case, Smooth Ambler Old Scout 100 proof, bottled by (who else?) Sarah.

 

Good stuff.

Happy Holidays!  Brought this one back from duty free, and it tastes good.  I rarely drink Maker's but that'll do, pig.

Well if you don’t like it you can dispose of it by pouring it right down my drain.

This 14yr 2mo KC pick has basically none of the peanut brittle I get in all other KC picks I've had. It's absolutely incredible, so I decided to toss it up next to B517, so it's close in proof. These are both fantastic. I cant say I prefer one over the other. Great pours while watching the President's Cup.

Got a new Four Roses bar mat along with an awesome rocks glass with a big heavy base so I decided to christen the glass with the '19 4RLESmB. Damn is this fine, fine bourbon. This is Brent Elliot's first grand slam. '15 and '17 were great. This one is even better.

This is a great BiB wheater.  So much depth and complexity on the nose and palate.  My first bottle but not my last...

Enjoying a little ETL this evening. 

 

This one is deeper than an Oklahoma spring fed blue hole. 

 

Cheers

A change of pace. WTRB, current batch. 

 

Yes, that scratches the itch just fine, thank you.

Aww, Man!   Just is just AWFUL news for your family, LCW, especially for your B-i-L.   

Please pass along my best hopes for a VERY slow and l o o n n g progression for him.   As others have said, I hope for him and your family that life can and will be enjoyed to the utmost as often and as well as possible (including all the best whiskey that can be poured!) during all his remaining time, for as many years as the Good lord sees fit to allow. 

I'll add one more suggestion: seek out a bottle (or more!) of Parker's Heritage... starting with 'Promise of Hope' if you can find one, and savor with love, as they were made for exactly this purpose.

I had forgotten about that. I do have 2 bottles of PoH left. I will definitely open one with him. Thanks
