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.     ?

Santa was very good to me this year!  It is a little on the hot side for me at 119 proof but the port influence is very strong. I guess I could rephrase this in Star Wars terms  “. The port is strong with this one. “. sorry couldn’t help myself.

While Diageo doesn't get much (nah, any) respect, I enjoyed pours from R23 and FO earlier today, and plan on closing out the evening with a little W12 and some Weller blend.

 

Merry Xmas!!

I thought I would break into this after a long Christmas! My daughters first Christmas was great but exhausting. Cheers!

I'll take some of that prime rid off your hands if you have any left, [mention=12713]HoustonNit[/mention]. That photo is making my mouth water! [emoji6]


Ha, whenever you’re in Houston you’re welcome to as much as you want.

Those of you that get coal in your stocking “AND YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE” you should really try to do better next year.

I will - I'm going for TWO pieces of coal!

I opened my bottle too.  Had it at the same time we were sampling the PVW 15 & the 4R 2019 LE.  For me and most of the people in the room this was the winner.

Wow that is interesting. I really enjoyed the couple pours I had, and would be interested in some blind tastings or comparisons. I’ll definitely be utilizing the decanter for maybe a daily drinker like WT101 or OGD BIB. Cheers!

So how would you rank them, I’d imagine squat bottle ORVW but everyone is different.


Sorry for the delay in response. Been busy for the Holiday.

The ORVW from that era is just really special. Just so full of butterscotch and caramel with candied fruits along side. Just an explosion of sweet goodness. That said it is a little one dimensional in that sense but a very special dimension.

I’d say the WTMK would rank 2nd for me. A bit overoaked for some probably but I love the char and cedar notes. The most complex of the three with a lot of dark fruit (plums?) and burnt sugar mixed in with all that oakiness. I get some baking spices which I’m terrible at picking out but I’d say cinnamon and nutmeg are the two I can pick out. I regret passing on these at 99.99 when I had the chance and wish I had a spare.

The Blanton’s Gold is amazing but just not on the same level as the other two. Very good and no complaints but just was out of its league in this lineup. Opinions will vary of course.

How is it? I have yet to open mine.

See my post above this one for details. I find it amazing and wish I had WAY more than just the one.

That's a damned shame that the glasses cost more than the drink going inside them.  ?

Adjusted for inflation the Old Crow would be a whopping $9 today.
